Ratings and Reviews
does a good job for a free tool
I’ve been using hangouts for about seven years as a part of our work google environment meaning that we would use all the tools that google provides. As many reviews suggest, there’s lots of room for improvement but it is a great free usable instant communication service for gmail users. It worked perfectly well among 250 people inside the company and you can also add outside gmail users to the chat. Practical, covers main needs, can be much better.
A great communication tool that has room to improve
It's a very nice tool but lacks
1. Password protect at launch or at changing identities / users
2. Save and email a chat through phone alone and without the air of a laptop
4. Has a delay in notifications both in center as in badges that can be up to almost an hour. Usually uninstalling and reinstalling fixes it temporarily
I recommended this to some ppl and only one did get in. But they were friends. My Mother has got this app
