Great app, but a tad dated.

I’ve been using Hangouts for a while now and it’s a great alternative to other messaging software. It’s simple, no-nonsense and decently feature-equipped. I would have liked a few other features like the ability to delete messages after sending them, sending PDFs and other files, etc. but it’s nothing I can’t live without. Also, I’ve noticed a few bugs developing recently. For instance, messages that have already been received through the notification bar appear only after keeping the conversation page open for a while. Other than this, there is little to find fault with. I’d highly recommend Hangouts to anybody else.

P. S. Love the default notification sound.


Amazing but should have more stuff

I love hangouts I’ve been using it for a very very long time! It’s an amazing time you should get the app all you need is a google account. I do think that in the future you could add some more things to the amazing app such as-

You should be able to reply to messages, you should also be able to add a group picture for a group with your friends/family etc. You should also add some other things such as sending files and more you should also be allowed to send videos more than 5 mins. It would be great when you’re on a call you should be able to share screen on iPad and also add virtual background and filters. It would be amazing if you could add most of these suggestions hangouts would be the best app ever I mean it already is but it would make it even better!! :)

Hope you read this!!

Don’t change Hangouts to Chat!!

Guys, I know Hangouts might seem a little simple and outdated. Yes, it doesn’t have the best, most smooth features, nor does it seems to become better at any rate. It looks dull, only white and green, so it doesn’t even excite you visually.

But I still love it. I’ve made so many beautiful memories on Hangouts as it was my first social media. And yes, you might say that my limited experience of social media is the reason why I’m okay with Hangouts. While that may be true to some extent, I feel there is a larger force driving us to use social media.

That is simply, connecting with your friends. Hearing their notifications. Seeing new messages. Making conversations. No matter how advanced our social media becomes, we will still only ever worry about who’s on the other side of the chat - who you Hangout with.

So don’t change Hangouts to chat. I know I contradict myself by attaching myself to Hangouts, but my reasoning also advises to not replace it.

Whatever you’re trying to achieve by using chat, is not worth replacing Hangouts for. I know there are people like me who feel the same. (Leave a like if you do)
