Ratings and Reviews
Needs reactions and gifs
In 2018, instant text communication is not longer enough for a chat client. Reactions, gifs etc have now become the norm and we express ourselves using those everywhere. Not being able to use them on this chat client is a blocker.
Don’t know why 1:1 chats aren’t threaded, and the threads in the rooms need some UX improvements.
3 stars, because at least it is better than the old Hangouts.
So close, yet so far.
This app is almost there. It desperately needs to be able to manage multiple accounts, and it certainly should (go back to) a side-by-side format (I don’t know what happened; I’m 90% sure we had that before and then this last update broke it). It would be nice if individual chats could have “conversations” also to keep things nice and organized. You also MUST be able to delete/archive rooms. Oh, and we need some sort of thumbs-up or “like” feature! There have been a lot of “updates” pushed out lately, but not many changes. It would be nice to see some new features/upgrades soon!
This app is in alpha phase
I dont usually rate apps . But this app is way far from being ready . I'm a Google fan boy and I try to adopt the lastest of what Google has to offer in our organization. But this product was one of the worst apps I've used . The app has potential but is missing many important features and it's very frustrating trying to use the app. Google Hangouts is an old app and yet it feels more capable and functional than the chat app. I feel Google need to put more resources into this app . As for now we stuck with an old app (Google Hangouts) and an basic chat app that just frustrating. I wish Google bought WhatsApp a while back 😂. Common Google before you focus on AI try to get focus on getting the basics right .
