Hangouts Positives and Negatives
I love how hangouts is a very useful texting and communicating app, so I will recommend this to nearly everyone. Because of its usefulness, quick sending, and how my friends also enjoy this. However there a couple of problems with this app. First is that the app only allows you to use gmail accounts. Now I am not saying that iCloud or anything is better then gmail, but the fact that some people may not be able to use this is really sad just because the email didn’t work out. Another problem is, is that sometimes when I or my friend sends messages myself and my friend can not see the text messages unless we log out and then back in. This fact is very disturbing that I am not able to read the message until I log out. But anyway besides these facts that I hope will be considered and used in the next update I think that this is an AMAZING app! I hope you enjoy this app and have fun texting your friends! :D
Please don’t get rid of Hangouts!
Hi Google. I use Hangouts with all my friends and family because not everyone has an iPhone. But also I use it on desktop so I can more quickly respond to people while working. I credit Hangouts Desktop for helping me stay in touch with family throughout the day while at work. Given Facebook’s reputation I really don’t want to have to switch to Facebook Messenger after you guys shutdown Hangouts. Hangouts Chat doesn’t make sense for my family and friends because then everyone makes their own workspace for every single group of friends. Making chat groups on Hangouts has always been faster, and don’t die off like so many Slack workspaces made just for certain friend groups. I don’t need a work space and bunch of channels for my drinking buds. Hangouts chat groups have always worked better for more informal back and forth. Hangouts is your most popular messaging platform. There are probably so many others like me that would like to use Hangouts so they don’t have to move over to Facebook. Hangouts is popular! Why not use Hangouts as a way of guiding people into Hangouts Chat? When people are starting a group chat, offer to those users to convert the group chat to a Hangouts Chat workspace. I mean, you have access to all these users. Integrate GPay into Hangouts. SOMETHING. There’s value here! Microsoft would kill for a messaging platform as popular as Hangouts!
My friends wanted to chat with me, so they recommended hangouts to do it. I was like Ok, let’s try it. It’s all like the regular texting app, but you can also call using the same app, which is pretty convenient. The regular app does not include calling, and you need two apps if you want to call. You can also switch from voicemail to FaceTime, instead of having to call again if you want to FaceTime. Group chat let’s you talk as a group in a voicemail or FaceTime, and all of the people can decide if they want either voice only or camera. If you don’t have the new update for group chat on your device, that’s ok! You don’t need to update to group chat on Hangouts. Overall, this app totally deserves five stars. As an addition, I like the little cyclops guy that you see if there is nothing there. Hey, it’s cute and makes the app pop out more. The logo is a dialog bubble with quotations (“) in it, which is a pretty clever idea because the app is about chat. If you are reading this and you don’t have Hangouts, get it right now. You better. And if you already do, then give yourself a pat on the back. I’m so glad I found this app, and I hope you decide to use the app too. Applause to the creator of this app. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 You deserve it.
