It’s a very good and cool app
Great app
by aliwithani on 2020/10/19 03:33
It’s a great app! There are some glitches where it stops responding but it’s a great app. Some things I wish it would add is like able to add a story like Insta and Snap bc I want my friends to know what I’m doing without texting it to them and seeming annoying.
There are so many fake Lee Minhos

The network is down more than up. There are far too many fakes. Cat phishing is abundant. Scammers use this site .

First off this app is loaded with bugs, it is so poorly designed for the average user but is clearly catered to scammers. Too many bad things with this app.

DONT DO IT
by AWP hyperbeast on 2020/10/17 03:04
I downloaded this app like a dumbass to see something and they tried to scam me 1,200$ for a “surgery” I looked up what the scams look like and it was a fake one to lose a chunk of money and they would spread something horrible I suggest this app to be deleted FOREVER
Can’t block spammers from the app
by wewereangels on 2020/10/17 02:17
The app has no feature to block and report spammers. Blocking a number involves going to the Google Hangouts website. If you’re blocking multiple numbers be sure to refresh between blocks. The site deleted the wrong conversation because the list of conversations didn’t update after the last block. I’m annoyed that I lost record of a project that I did.
Cool but weird
by M.Ulukaya on 2020/10/16 22:14
In this app you can text and call, however you can only call the people that say ok. But I sent a message and it never delivered so I’m just trying it out and you know that I’m not happy.
Stay I touch
by TDG&H on 2020/10/16 21:56
Good text, phone and privacy but cannot delete a contact which I did one time but unable to remember! Wish I could go back over all the texts ever since inception! App should verify all who use to ensure no nefarious content!

Hangouts is a cool fun free game for you to text your friends and call them like you would if you had an iPhone
New feature requested.
by LukeTheWolf on 2020/10/16 17:36
Hangouts is a cool app and all... but it would be really handy if you could delete certain messages. And be able to go to the very beginning of the conversation.
Mr,
by julius500 on 2020/10/16 17:11
The hangout messenger is the best communication means but I will advise they should create a means of deleting messages that is mistakenly send

Now that iOS 14 is out the autocorrect no longer works so you have to be very careful what you type
Good and then bad
by igotpoop on 2020/10/15 03:18
It started out all good till one day I opened it and it logged me out. I tried logging back in but it kept saying “Unable to add account.” Yet for all my friends it was working just fine. I don’t know what happened, but an update might be nice.
So Good
by SuperHeroLT on 2020/10/14 15:02
You must get this app this is the best way to talk to your friends if they have a different software when you have an iPhone because of android and all the Time in via Google hangouts is so cool favorite
It’s ok
by Tiki_qeen on 2020/10/14 13:46
I can’t add my accounts to the hangouts it’s not working for me. Hope you can fix this bug.
Hangouts contacts profile pic
by SAK092179 on 2020/10/14 13:43
2nd review....here we go again the icons are disappearing Again & the only way to get them back is to flippin delete the app and reinstall!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a waste. You must have smarter people working there that can fix the issue!!!! This ONLY happens on iphone Everything was going great till last week when all of a sudden google removes one of my contacts profile picture only on my iPhone 6s. It does NOT happen on any other device. I have sent messages to google who have not replied whatsoever I even pretty much almost completely reset my phone and still having an issue. Please advise how this can be fixed!!! This issue still is not rectified as even on my iPhone XS I am still having the same issue. The icon pics still suddenly disappear and to tell me to just delete and reinstall is bs because this I do a dozen times a day time to ditch google
Love it BUT
by Isnand on 2020/10/13 23:58
I’ve used this app for years but recently it’s gotten annoying. I’ll send a message and when I get back in the app to reply again, the last message I sent will be back in the chat again and I have to hold delete until it goes away, it only does this with the app and not the website. It gets rather annoying especially when my message was very long and I have to hold delete for along time just to reply again. I’ve sent in a complaint about this to the support page and of course got no reply on how to fix it or if it will be fixed. Again the app is great BUT that needs fixed as well as the ability to delete friends or block friends from the app. If you wish to delete someone you no longer talk to you have to go to the website on a computer which is a pain
Awesome communication app!😂😂😂
by areman2w on 2020/10/13 19:37
Is a great communication app, especially if you want to chat while calling, I mean, on regular call you have to message with the little green bar on the top with only audio, but with hangouts you get the audio video deal!
My Hangouts opinion...
by Ankur 14O4 on 2020/10/13 19:00
Good messaging app , also the calls are clear and stable. But this lacks in messaging features like the ones in messenger.

BEST.APP.EVER
by Chicken Veah girl on 2020/10/12 04:49
I love this app! I used to have messenger and me and my friends would do homework and study together but one day my friends mom didn’t want her on messenger. I used TextNow because it gave a free phone number because I don’t have one. I didn’t like the ads and it didn’t have a video call option. I was looking when I found tons of apps but my friend’s mom didn’t let her have any of them. I did google meet with my friends but I wanted a video call built in app. When I found this. My mom let me have it and my friends mom. My friend started texting and calling me and it’s so much fun. I think hangouts is faster on a mobile device and I tested it. I love this app and hope it stays 😀😀😀😊😊😊😻😻😻 Thanks Google! 💬

i love this app! it helps me keep in touch with my friends 24/7. problem is, it glitches like crazy. it won’t let me call sometimes and when i do call, my phone keeps turning on and off. it also doesn’t show anyone’s profile pictures anymore. another thing is sometimes i call it says i have another incoming call when i don’t and it’s really annoying. i suggest using this app as a last resort :)

by Mintro❤️ on 2020/10/09 11:05
You can’t send audio flies 😤it’s so limited you cant even delete messages (like imagine you send smth that you didn’t intend to.. mistakes happen yko) also make sharing more interesting.. like when I link my friend a YouTube video, it just shows the link that’s boring... and the emojies like wack I used they looked the same on laptop and phone.
Three errors
by hangouts user 10000 on 2020/10/09 06:35
Error 1 Sometimes I make typos while typing fast and there is no way to delete it Error 2 I hv put notifications and number of notifications above icon Tho sometimes even after I check Hangouts and clear the notifications it still says 1 message above icon Error 3 On my pc I take advantage of all the cool emojis like /happy and /me ETC... but it doesn’t work on my iPad Please fix all 3 errors Otherwise I think it is a great app and I use it all the time And have several contacts

True or false?
by shopkins girl! on 2020/10/08 17:41
I keep getting this! Is it true or false? Dear Hangouts members, Hangouts is supposed to close Nov 7, 2020 because it has become too populated. There have been many members complaining that Hangouts has become very slow. indicate that there are many active members of Hangouts but also many new members. We will send this message to see if the members are active or not. If you are active please send to 15 other users using copy and paste to show that you are still active. Those who do not send this message within 2 weeks will be deleted without hesitation to make more space. Send this message to all your friends to show that you are active
The app needs features and updates
by Quanbwoy on 2020/10/08 15:40
I don’t like that fact that you can’t delete wrong messages from your chat and pictures as well ... you have you build up your app and add more updates.. thank you ..

Hangouts is a great way to communicate with your friends. It was especially useful during COVID 19. I could talk with friends so we could still chat. You can send photos and stickers and even do a google meet with them. You should really try Hangouts! It’s a great app!
Poor volume
by Gnarly bro! on 2020/10/07 18:19
Poor volume is the beginning. The video takes up so much bandwidth. No one in the house can use the wifi when I’m on hangouts. That’s how data greedy hangouts is, like a kid that doesn’t know how to share their toys. They should’ve bought WhatsApp when they had the chance. Now FB is slowly ruining what could’ve been great with Google infrastructure. Go watch Silicon Valley and make the video code better! Sound volume will come naturally after that.

Good but could be better

Audio Problem
by DNA_ on 2020/10/05 18:18
I’m not sure why this happens, but every time i call via phone, the audio is incredibly low, which is frustrating because I always end up switching to my laptop thus defeating the purpose of a hangouts app in the first place.

Dark mode
by Amber 0^0 on 2020/10/04 23:42
Hangouts is slow a bit but other then that I think it works completely fine!! I would like a feature so that you could delete contacts instead of just archive. And I would really really really love a dark mode

I do love hangouts it a way I can talk to my buddies.There is some cute Easter eggs too which I love! I have some suggestions and things I want to change. I feel like There needs to be some more options.You should have an option we’re you can have a sleep mode to show your asleep so your friends know.Its so annoying 🙄 when my friends are messaging me so much at night.I feel like there should be an option to customize the color of your hangout.Green just looks boring no offense We need options or possibly a customizable photo back ground on your hangouts.The thing that bugs me the most is the status updates.I feel the status updates should be easier to see.Like when Your messaging a friend and you want to let them know your status cause they wanna call.It should be By the persons name when they text and it should have a scroll through of all there status.I really want you to add is funny filters and customizable stickers.It would give you some Difference from other messaging apps.Thank you for reading this It’s not a bad app it needs room for Improvements👁👄👁
I like it!

Very good :) some minor issues
by Cat :D 😹😹 on 2020/06/14 18:01
Google hangouts is a very good app and I use it all the time. I talk to my friends and work on projects for school. I love using the app and there aren’t many issues I have to face with. Other than just a few minor issues (some may be due to my knowledge on how to use the app) for me the worst thing on hangouts is when you have hangouts calls. They are very glitchy and it makes it hard to hear what people are saying. So , I tried fixing my WiFi but that didn’t help either. Many of my friends also told me about this problem before so we just use google meet. Which is actually really good and I get a crisp sound. I also have a problem with calling on hangouts for some reason on my phone the volume is very low and if I call on my iPad it’s normal. Idk if it’s a problem with my phone but every time I use the call on my phone that happens. But I get over it. Otherwise I definitely recommend getting hangouts. It’s a very good app and has many good uses.
Needs work but good
by Tamara01 on 2020/09/09 12:33
I don’t like the fact that you cannot delete contacts from your Hangouts. For example if you no longer talking to this person/Company there’s no way of deleting their name phone number from Hangouts. So they stay there forever. Which I cannot stand. There has to be a way that Google can add the option to remove contacts from hang out. Another pet peeve that I have is deletingSomething you sent by accident, maybe it was a typo in there but there’s no way of deleting something that you are ready send, or even deleting a picture that you no longer want there. The only option they give you is to archive and I don’t want to archive things I want to be able to delete things. So Google has a little bit of work to do with this great app that I think it is. Sometimes it calls won’t go through when you’re calling overseas sometimes the calls are not even clear because of maybe the condition of the weather or whatever is going on they still have to work on that, but overall it’s a good app. So that’s why I gave it three stars for now until they update and work on those issues. One more thing if you block somebody and they try to call you it comes through as unknown hang out caller, and there’s no way finding out who is trying to call you. There should be a way of knowing who is calling you.
Hangouts
by Cherie_the_Awesome_ on 2020/06/11 00:47
Hangouts is cool and you can add a lot of people to chat with! But there is a just a teeny little problem, we can call each other but still chat in the call not go into the hangouts app just staying at the call and not leaving to go chat in the normal place. You have to go try on the computer to do it and sometimes you can’t hear your friends voice sometimes. But I love it still no matter how good or bad it is! And you can log into any account but at the beginning you have to use gmail. But my friends at school have been sending invites in my school account and i didn’t know i could make another account and that i didn’t know my school email would work! That’s why hangouts is still good and it will always be forever! At least it is bad and PLEASE DON’T GET RID OF THIS. I say that because i don’t have every friend i can talk to on messages and that’s why i also use hangouts so i can talk with other friends! So if you do get rid of this i am going to help raise this level. ( i love is so I’m still giving it a 5 star rating because even with teeny problems, you have to ignore then to help go do the right thing and don’t do the bad !)

Hangouts is cool and you can add a lot of people to chat with!

So far, so good! Finally, one that actually works for free!
by ChattanoogaMommy on 2020/09/22 13:20
Having lost my income, and Congress failing to act on a new unemployment stimulus, I’ve lost my car, my phones, and my internet. With two immune compromised babies at home- not having a phone is a dangerous risk. I’ve tried all the calling apps and they’re great for the first day- until you need to make any important phone calls. Then you’ll find out why the app is “free” which is only free if you don’t need it for anything remotely important. So imagine my surprise when I finally decide to try “hangouts”. I though it was just like a video chat kind of app, like a Google version of Messenger kind of think. I suppose in many ways it is, but much better. I’ve been able to call ANY number I need, no issues, no insane survey lists that never truly end and never give a single reward. No monthly fee requests to upgrade (YET lol). The ONLY issue so far is that I don’t appear to have a phone number when I call people, so they are not able to call me back. But as an introvert, I support I could think of much worse things to happen in life. So far, so good. Will update if anything changes.
Hangouts - College Buds from all parts of the Country- still best friends
by Bryan_johnson23 on 2020/03/14 15:09
So... I graduated college in 2009 from University of Oklahoma. I had a group of 8 guys that were best of friends. We all moved to various parts of the country afterwards for jobs, girls, etc. We were out of touch for a few years - except for the occasional Fantasy Football trash talking during 4 months/yr. We joined Hangouts in 2012 and have been chatting on this daily (yes... daily) since then. Marriages, kids & all of life’s struggles & achievements have been chronicled since. There may only be a few short chats a day or entire pages & pages of back & forth. Google Hangouts has been the one place that has kept us guys connected and best of friends since college. Also, probably the reason we could never run for office one day if we wanted...lol... but that’s neither here nor there. Highly recommend this chatting app and hope it never goes away. Lastly, one of the only apps I know that offers Video Chat for up to 10 people at once. We’ve played fantasy football bets & drinking games on more than a few occasions with all 8 of us on the video chat. Super Cool.
Not private
by flipfoster on 2020/08/22 09:22
This platform has so many problems it is pathetic for one it is not private I know for a fact that my conversations have been hacked into also what is up with your messages centipedeing all over the place when you are trying to type or dictate a full message, why don't you have the capability to make corrections after the message has posted and the hacker has hacked up the message to where it doesn't make any sense you should be able to delete that message before the person it was intended for have time to read it, that is what I mean someone is able to hack this platform and completely ruin your day. Why are you not allowed to change the type size to make the print smaller or larger, the hacker has that capability because they keep changing my print size from normal to very small and to very large. Why can't you control the volume on the notifications to something that you could hear instead of just that one little ding I want to be able to put my own notification sound on it not what hangouts allows me to have and it should have a tone to let you know a new message has just arrived. I have come to the conclusion that anything that Google has anything to do with can be spied on by them and they do and also by hackers so don't think that your conversations are private.
Thank you Google!
by XxGalaxyxX94 on 2020/06/22 04:04
Hai google! Some of my friends aren’t old enough to have a phone number, so they use Google Hangouts to talk to me! You can FaceTime, Voice call, send pictures and more. I do have one complaint, if a friend updates there google name or profile picture I have to update the app!! Very frustrating... if you do have a phone number you can make a new contact, add a friends email, and then change the name to whatever you want it to be! You then have to update the app. That’s just a trick I picked up :) If your an adult and ate thinking about downloading this app for them I have a few things to say.. you can be texted by any person who has your email, but before they can chat with you, you have to accept there request. On Google Hangouts there is no access to the internet, unless somebody sends you a link. I love this app! Oh!! I almost forgot!! You can make a group chat and video call them all, and if you don’t wanna show your face you can mute yourself and turn off your camera. I’m running out of space so I'm gonna stop writing. Shine on Google Hangouts!! ⭐️💝
Hangouts features/flexibility beat Duo
by SysOp404 on 2020/03/01 00:01
Is a laugh to read all the fake reviews and nonsense that kids are writing to hype Duo. Hangouts is obviously a full-featured, all-around cross-platform app, while Duo is little more than a one-trick pony (OK... let's give it the two-trick benefit-of-doubt here.) Hangouts allows voice calls with all mobile and landline voice numbers, with no Hangouts app needed by the other parties. Hangouts supports texting between any phone numbers that allow texting - again without a Hangouts app needed by the others. Hangouts ONLY requires using the app or website to do video calls with others. The quality of Duo video IS generally better than Hangouts video, but that alone certainly doesn't make up for Duo's major limitation of no connectivity of any kind, to most phone numbers. (Duo uses phone numbers only for identifying which Duo apps to connect together.) ALL parties must be using a Duo app or the website. You definitely won't be calling all phone numbers with the very limited Duo app.
Having issues
by YMFDM on 2020/06/24 03:35
I really like the app for the fact that it allows me to stay in contact with my girlfriend while she is deployed overseas to some less than desirable locations. What I don’t like is that the only way I get message notifications is if I have the phone unlocked and the app open. Otherwise, I have no idea when she sends a message. I’ve checked my notification settings many times. I’ve even deleted and reinstalled the app a couple times. Another minor annoyance is the refresh time. Most evenings I open the app on the phone and iPad both so we can have something close to a real-time conversation. I have to continually exit out of and re-enter the app on both devices in order to get the latest messages in a timely manner. If not, there may be a 30-90 second delay between when it shows up on one until it shows up on the other. For us this is a big issue because we have a very limited amount of time together when we get to chat. Maximizing the time available is quite important. Other than that, I think it’s pretty good.
Pretty cool.
by Oodleade on 2018/08/24 18:06
I’ve been using this app for three years now and it works pretty good. There are times when it glitches out (the screen freezes, the keyboard disappears, messages won’t send etc) but those glitches are less common now. When it comes to video chatting in large groups, sometimes it overloads it and everyone freezes but that can be fixed by everyone (except for one person) hanging up and re-joining. There was one time when the video chatting system barely worked but that was a while ago. Overall, it’s a really useful app for people who can’t afford phones or data because it can be used on almost any device. Half the time I forget I’m using an app and just feel like I’m texting instead. Oh, and the screen will show who is there in the chat with you, when a message was wrote, and if someone is typing or deleting something in a message. I always found that to be a fun and useful feature.
Hangouts Positives and Negatives
by michelle lee :) on 2020/05/01 02:49
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
Amazing app! Just some minor issues...
by Victor Sevier on 2020/06/29 19:05
This app works great! It has every single bit of necessary functions that the desktop version has, and it works great! (Well, I haven’t tried to use the video call feature, sorry!) Anyways, it works great, it actually syncs the chats very well and it actually does everything the desktop version does! And it’s not like some crappy port of the desktop app, it actually works! But here’s my issue, and this is for anyone using an iPad, I wish this app would have multitasking support because as of right now, when I try to use multitasking, it doesn’t work. I want to try and experiment with this feature so when I need to do something else at the same time, and chat with others, I would probably need it, but since I don’t chat a lot on it, I don’t really care. Overall, it works great and looks great! Good job, Google. Oh, and 1 more thing. Please add Dark Mode support, it would be much appreciated.
Great, but why are you killing it in 2020?
by 7/8Time on 2019/12/06 07:21
I use this app to chat with my buddies informally. Your new apps, Chat and Meet, split hangouts for no apparent reason, into a video app and a text app. Why...? I am completely baffled. Please explain why these new professional apps are better than the tried-and-true hangouts. What split into two apps anyway? You did this with Drive, Docs, Slides, etc as well. Also, my friend (the one I talk via hangouts with) is trying to get me to move to Discord. Just saying, a lot of people will move to different apps when you kill it. And they won’t be your two new ones. Also: the bugs are racking up. It’s been saying that several messages (around 10) send since yesterday are “sending” despite my friend already having seen and responded to them. And the sendrates are getting slower. Please, just kill it quickly if you have to, instead of letting it bleed out slowly from the bugs and lags.
Love it
by EmmaMarie23 on 2019/02/10 13:40
I’ve been using hangouts for about five years now and I love it. It for sure works better on Samsung or LG products than I phone products, but there isn’t a huge difference. Sometimes it just takes a little longer to load. I like that I’m able to use it on my phone and on my laptop. I love pretty much everything about it except the new emojis. The new emojis are scary looking, I prefer the old ones. I’ve made new friends through this outlet. I even eventually met my boyfriend through this huge group chat I had started with people I knew. Those people added some people they knew and I just remember laughing a lot. I’m also able to keep in touch with a friend I met from Switzerland. My whole immediate family uses it too, we have a family group chat! If the app creators are ever looking to improve it though, they should revert back to the old emojis and maybe add some gifs. I highly recommend this app!
Solid Video Conferencing App
by Nicknameisirrelevant on 2020/03/20 14:39
We’ve recently switched to Hangouts for our virtual music lessons. I love the no-nonsense layout, and as long as you have headphones, the audio quality is comparable to other video conferencing platforms. Here’s the good: - user friendly, especially for youth. It’s a familiar layout and easy to navigate. Especially for those with limited app/tech experience - very responsive (with good internet) and for teaching, it’s nice to be in a live chat and also have the ability to send photos and files in the messaging system. - the ability to make groups is awesome - works great across all devices - unlike some other platforms, you do not have to send a “chat link” by email. Just a message within the app itself. The bad: - having a new contact go to your “invites” tab instead of your messages tab is confusing and led to a lot of lost calls in the beginning. - does not seem to play well with Safari on a computer. People trying to call through Safari tend to get a white screen and have to either switch web browsers (Chrome or Firefox) or dig around their permissions to allow Hangouts increased functionality. - sometimes the incoming call only shows up as an active gray bar within the chat itself. Misleading to new users. This only happens if the app is currently open and the chat is open. Not the end of the world, just easy to miss the call. Hope this helps!
Suggested!
by fan_denis2154 on 2020/07/28 15:21
I dearly love this google app. It’s basically the only texting program I use! It’s fairly useful, being able to create several different group chats for you and your friends, and unlike messages on apple devices, it doesn’t toggle the ability to change the name or add more people depending on the device. I once made a group chat on apple messages, and I was trying to add my whole class, though, because not everyone had apple devices, every time I needed to add a new person I had to make a whole new group chat. Sticks, right? On hangouts, I’m able to do everything apple does, but in one app. It’s a really good app! Though, I would like to add that it does have it downsides. Between me and my friends, despite how loud we are in the vid, never have any volume. Not a rustle of papers turning, not nada. I really hope you work on that, but otherwise a amazing app! Sincerely, Thestorm_fin (they/them <3)
Perfect if you have no phone
by jackielands on 2019/11/07 17:07
This app is perfect if your phone got cut off or if you have no money to get service. I'm able to send and receive text messages and make and receive calls without having a phone carrier. And in my book, that's wicked awesome. So far I haven't had any technical issues with the app, it's never crashed or froze on me. And I've had a Google voice number since they first came out, I highly recommend getting one. You have to have a working number to set it up with tho but after that it stays on even if your phone gets cut off. And you can call your number from another number and then make an outgoing call that will show up as your number on the receiving phone. So that's really cool. All in all I've just been very pleased with my Google voice and Hangouts experience. Thanks Google! You have saved me from being cut off from communication!
Data Only Cell Phone Plan?
by Danaevictoriah on 2020/06/04 15:40
So I’ve been using Google Hangouts (with Google Voice integration) as my primary phone number for texts and calls. I got use Ting as my cell phone provider. I pay for what I use. My cell phone bill has been $9/mo. I turned off texts and calls through my ACTUAL cell phone # and only use the Google Voice/Google Hangouts #. So I only pay for data. I have WiFi pretty much everywhere I go. So texts and calls are received on WiFi through this app. It’s worked well enough...not perfect. But more than I could ask for of any other service or app. This one is definitely the best in its class for this type of thing. But the main issues were: * Phone often doesn’t ring when someone is calling you. * Call history is super messed up. For some reason it only recorded outgoing calls made from that device. So the iPad says something different than my iPhone. * Can’t add a new contact within the app. Must copy the number, go to native contacts app, create new contact, paste the number. * Call quality was good on WiFi, but unreliable call quality when relying on my data to make a call through this app. Which MIGHT have been more the fault of my cell phone provider? Not sure... Some of these things might be fixed in soon-to-release updates. These issues weren’t enough to make me resist $9/mo WiFi.
Best App!
by RutHenry on 2019/04/05 07:06
I absolutely love using Google Hangouts! Since 2016, I’ve been using this app and have gotten countless peers to download and use it as well! As a university student, it has allowed me to effectively communicate with the many groups I’ve had to work with throughout the semesters. It makes group meetings a breeze, as you can track who is in the conversation, it eliminates the need for keeping minutes as the conversations are saved in their entirety until you decide to leave the group chat, and the voice and video call features are easy to use. I love that you can participate with only voice in the video option! Overall, Google Hangouts is by far my number one chat app! If you don’t have it, or think “Yeah okay, it’s just like messenger, or all the rest,” you’re wrong! You should definitely download and use this app regularly!! I’d give it 10 stars if I could!
Meh
by Smackadoo u on 2020/07/18 14:24
Do not use with strangers they will have your email if you do. Beware of scammers (anyone you don’t know) asking to message you through hangouts. It is good for staying connected especially with groups. I wish there was a way to just react to a message without actually responding like I can do with my texts on my phone or the “like” feature on other social apps. Also you cannot flip through pictures in the group using iOS you have to open each picture then close before opening the next. Also you cannot message a gif straight from the app in iOS, I have to copy and paste. It would also be great to be able to search within a thread like when we are planning an event, or just to remember a detail about something that was said. Basically it isn’t the best for being social, but is more for just staying connected through quick texts in a separate app that doesn’t have to bother individuals in a group that hate being bombarded with group texts on their phone. It is pretty good with video chats. Easy for many people to use and less interruptions than Skype, less reliable than FaceTime or Zoom though. But I can use it with people that don’t have apple and the time isn’t limited. It really is free and you can use it across all devices or computers. Some glitches and bugs, but they usually fix it fairly quickly or I am able to reset things and it works it out on its own (just slightly inconvenient).
Worked great until it didn't, repetitively messed up my phone, can't uninstall
by NocturnaTheWarrior on 2020/07/19 18:52
It worked great for a while, but it often didn't notify me of new messages. Then it just straight-up wouldn't work and constantly messed up my phone. It would freeze up and the only way to get it to work again was to wait Multiple Days for my phone to die. Sometimes I couldn't open the app (a lot of the time, actually). Sometimes I'd open it just to have it crash. So I uninstalled it. Only to find that every time I power my phone back on or connect to wifi or renew my phone service it reinstalls. Meanwhile, it Still says I have the app in my settings, no matter how many times I click 'delete app' as soon as I go back to the manage storage page it's listed again. I DON'T WANT THIS APP ON MY PHONE ANYMORE!! IT MESSES IT UP AND NEVER WORKS!!! Tell me google, why can't I remove your apps? What are you doing to my phone? How do I know you're not stealing my information? I mean, of course you do, that's how you make your money, but I mean off-Google stealing info. You have no idea how much it bothers me that I can't remove this app...
Never stop supporting it!!!
by BlackRose0924 on 2017/10/13 19:59
I've been using Google Hangouts since 2013 as one of my main forms of communication. I've liked the interface for all the years I've used it and all of the improvements from sending multiple photos to sending your location to your friend(s), to even the animated emoji gumdrop gifs that you could send dubbed "stickers" (which are still cute as hell)! It's basically a triple threat app that needs to still be relevant if Google expects to compete with Apple in any way. It has FaceTime, Phone, and iMessage all in one and it's taken for granted every single day as it loses support for the newer apps like Allo and Duo. It's frustrating to see Allo and Duo catch on when they're two separate apps that can do what Hangouts has been doing for years. Keep it around, update it, don't let it die! Update: On iOS 11.0.3, it seems it’s having some issues with photos? Whenever I try to go to my photos directly inside the app and share a photo, it won’t let me. It’ll tell me to Cancel or Choose, and when I tap Choose, it slide over and shows the photo with no way to go back to typing or viewing my conversation. I have to forcibly close the app. Another issue would be that it won’t let me share my gifs via the share extension. It does allow me to share, but it freezes the gifs in place, making them a still. I hope you guys resolve this problem. It’s a great app that still deserves support.
Good for the most part except...
by Grey's Mom on 2018/08/17 12:11
Sometimes hangouts will just decide that they aren’t going to deliver any of my messages to a particular contact. And I cannot send messages to them on hangouts from my phone unless I delete the app and redownload it. It usually starts when I try to send the message when I don’t have great service. Instead of just holding onto it and sending it when I get in service, or showing “message send fail” it actually just says “sending....” into perpetuity. It never sends it. And it never marks as send fail. This has happened 3-4 times, and don’t understand why. It doesn’t change when I do a full restart of the phone. And yet, when I message the person from my desktop/gmail website, it not only sends, but the sent message appears on my hangouts app in real time. I just can’t respond from the app. Please fix this bug!
Good overall, but horrible problems
by ColleenCKing on 2019/10/09 21:02
I’ve been using this app three years, and until a few days ago I have had no complaints. But three days ago, I opened hangouts and found I had been locked out of the account I use for %90 of my conversations (it is a school account which I use because the school gives everyone an email address and most of my friends just use that email and don’t have a personal one). This has happened before, so I immediately went to the “add account” option. After completing the process it sent me back to the home screen with a little message reading “unable to add account”. I went through this process multiple times on both of the devices I use hangouts on, and found that it won’t let me add any other emails. I have tried to find helpful videos and websites and haven’t had luck, and I would vastly appreciate advice and explanation from the Hangouts team.
Great but one irritating problem..
by Annonymous Oreo on 2018/09/30 04:49
This app is very nice to communicate to people who don’t have numbers and only emails. There is an option to show if we are online or offline. Most of my contacts in Hangouts have that feature on. But, one person has two accounts synced to one email (Or one email synced to two accounts I think it’s both the same) and it NEVER gives me an accurate answer if she’s active or not. Sometimes, the icon of her profile picture fades and comes back repeatedly even with a chat bubble saying she’s typing, I don’t get a reply. And when I check, it says she’s active, I check AGAIN 20 minutes later.. it says she’s active! Then an hour later, it says she was active 2 hours ago. And I don’t understand why. I’m not saying that Hangouts is a bad app, I’m just saying they need to fix the inaccurate information.
nope
by iamthatfreespirit on 2020/03/13 18:21
this app is crap compared to messenger and that is really saying something. on iphone6 it is nearly impossible to even see the messages due to the tiny strip of screen which remains when one has the keyboard up to type (the resolution is formatted for longer screens). the kb is supposed to swipe down but doesnt work easily. it creates a lot of lag and is frustrating. it also doesnt let one select multiple pictures for a message, so one has to send them one at a time. and fhere is no tab to see photos one has sent, like messenger. there are also no reacts on messages which do come in handy and save some time and typing. anyway it is /ok/, i suppose. it’s just about usable but not at all high calibre. very beta and glitchy. i would have expected better quality from google. you own the internet, ya think you could make a decent messenging app. oh also the sticker oacks are weird and ugly lol. AND Fb just made messenger 1/4 of the size it was. it is now only 36mb whereas hangouts is 100+mb. fail
Good App,but needs some good help.
by Meep 🤭 on 2019/09/22 11:38
I can finally be able to text relatives that have different types of phones than me! I don’t have a SIM card, there is no point! With this app I have the thing I want. This is one of the best apps ever. I would recommend it!! I love the kitty stickers. I like to send them to relatives. They are funny. I also like that you can select the pictures you want to send to them. Whenever I want to call them, this wonderful app is able to call them! There is also FaceTiming. This app is a very good app, but sometimes I regret texting on it. There are big things like when I type in a email then it pops up two. I always click the wrong one. Please fix that. I would give this app 5 star if you fixed that. Another thing that I want them to fix is they should have one more stickers. In conclusion, this is one of the best apps ever! Rated: 3 star Not good for sending funny stickers and not good with emails.
Hangouts forever
by Rainb0w«^„^» on 2019/05/05 06:38
I’ve been using google hangouts for almost 8 years now and I love it. I got to choose my own number and my number didn’t change even though I had stopped using hangouts for quite some time. My number wasn’t recycled or given to someone else like most of the other texting and calling apps. With google hangouts once you get your number that’s your number forever until you decide to either delete your google hangouts account or change the number yourself, and even after you die the number will still be yours. I love hangouts and I’d seriously recommend that everyone should have a google hangouts app and number. I’ve had not one issue with this app and I can use it anywhere as long as I have either cell service with data or on WiFi.
Use the google apps
by CentralUnitedCoach on 2019/01/09 23:17
I have just graduated with my masters and after 6 years of use, I can attest that the suite of apps by google are smooth and easy and efficient. The only issues that ever arise have been with much older people that still use AOL or other outdated browsers and communication systems. The suite has fast and lite functionality for the whole team. MS office systems are slow and sketchy by comparison. Excel still has more functionality, but hardly anyone uses it anymore. Hangouts is an allin one solution for communication across teams. I can work on any system all day, sharing tools and screens, docs, and making meeting notes. Everyone gets connected and stuff gets done. It’s a major corporate conference tool at the google speed and availability. Use it or be an oldie that thinks the internet is just hype.
Unable To Receive Calls & Notifications
by TM70s on 2020/04/09 16:37
Since this update, I am unable to receive any real-time call notifications to my Google Voice number in the Hangouts app. This is my first time ever having this issue as a long time user. My settings are unchanged in my iPhone for receiving all notifications for Google Voice Hangouts inbound calls. Calls to my number ring on the callers end. Also, I am not receiving notifications in the Hangouts app when voicemails are left. I do not have my Google Voice number forwarded to any other number. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Hangouts today (Apr 9th) without any resolve. Not a good time for this issue to arise. - NOTE: I have Hangouts installed on an older iPhone (running 12.4.5) and it too will not provide any inbound call notifications whenever someone calls my Google Voice number. Also, I am not getting Google Voice Hangouts voicemail notifications on this old iPhone either when previously I could. (Outbound calls from the Hangouts app on either phone is NOT an issue.)
Good
by daliajalia on 2019/01/24 23:34
I’ve used google hangouts for about 2-3 years now. I call everyday on hangouts with my close friends. The app is actually really good. I like how you can easily communicate with your friends and people on here. It’s easy to call on the platform too. The only thing is that sometimes, the app would crash all of a sudden. I would click on the app and as I was about to message a friend, the app crashed and would act stupid. However, the app is just fine. It only has crashed on me about 4-5 times. I think that should be improved. Also, I feel like the ring tone can get annoying at times, so if they had options for ring tones, that would be much better. Other than that, the app is really good and I recommend it to chat with your friends, family, and other people. • <3 •
Please don’t get rid of Hangouts!!
by It's such a big number? on 2019/04/04 14:56
I’ve had google hangouts for several years now. Hangouts is a great messaging system, and since I am a student, very useful for communications about school-related topics. Google hangouts is used by literally everyone I know. That is why I am confused with why Hangouts is going to get cut— students can connect through hangouts, and is one of the few messaging systems available for everyone (Messages require having a phone, Facebook has strict rules about age and name, and other social networking doesn’t have messaging systems as universal and useful as Hangouts). Overall, I would say Google Hangouts is a wonderful plus to the online community, and because of the fact that it is email-based, everyone can use it. Please don’t get rid of hangouts!
A few bugs
by give me a tacocat on 2019/08/06 01:55
1 why do notifications only show one badge per conversation, even if i have a group chat send 150 text, it says that there is only one. Idk if this was on purpose or not, and it could be my phone, but it’s rly annoying. 2 profile pics are becoming really broken, in a group chat with 16 people that i am in, two of them don’t have their profiles showing, even tho they have a pic attached to their profile, also, half of the group sees my profile pic as the one that i had 2 months ago, when i have changed it 3 times since then, not to mention how many people’s i can’t see up to date, the avatar system is super buggy for some reason, idk if this is on purpose to draw ppl away from the app when they shut it down so it doesn’t cause as many problems, but I wish it was fixed
Great App.
by ✨💖Sylveon💖✨ on 2020/03/12 05:51
I’ve been using Hangouts for over a year now and it’s a really good app. But recently the icons to my contacts have disappeared, just leaving an L. I know this doesn’t really hinder the effectiveness of the app, I want to know why this is. Also. Sometimes it fails to notify me if someone messages me, making me miss their message for over an hour. And it also continues to delete conversations. This annoys me a lot. I know it may be for space or compatibility but I still don’t like it. And it sometimes doesn’t send my messages causing me to have to resend it. ALSO, it won’t let me send images. I keep trying over and over but I just deletes it and says “Failed to send” even though it didn’t even try. Fix these please and I’ll give you 5. Or kill it off before everyone gets tired of other bugs and lags.
Please update and add “encryption” & Audio/Video support
by Drum Up Digital on 2019/10/05 14:22
Please update the app and add “encryption” as it is a necessity in the times we live in regarding pretty much all internet of things. I’d also suggest adding excellent support for audio/video (multimedia) files as the particular type of files are always great to have ability to send and receive. Audio/video files should look appealing within the app to assure a seamless and enjoyable experience. Also, please look into updating the app to be as visually pleasing to the eye as possible because of the new OS for the latest devices. Please consider my requests as it would greatly increase the current enjoyment of functions in an already truly wonderful app that is very much handy and well developed. Thanks for your time and attention.
Works great despite minor issues
by Scorpwhal on 2020/04/11 04:17
A lot of my friends don’t have phones compatible with iMessage, so hangouts has been a really convenient way to communicate. I have, however, encountered a few minor problems. Whenever my group and I have issues calling, we have to make an entirely new group chat in order to get it running again. Thankfully, this has only happened a couple times, but I still feel it’s something worth mentioning. I also wanted to note how certain users’ profile pictures stop appearing after a certain amount of time. This is usually fixed after deleting and redownloading the app, although it still isn’t ideal. Aside from those two things, the app runs great. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an app compatible with different smart phones.
Very good
by LEDwings on 2019/04/07 18:31
I like this app a lot. It is basically a texting app, using an email address instead of a phone number, and it also has the ability to place phone calls and video calls, also using an email address. The only issue I have noticed is in video calls, our video will sometimes turn off, and it is difficult to get it back on. It often comes back on its own eventually, but it is annoying. That may be an issue with the WiFi and not with the app, but perhaps look into it to see if there’s a way to fix the issue. I would like to be able to exit the app while videocalling, without it turning the video off. In short, the only things I’ve noticed are connected to videocalling, and even those aren’t enough to make me stop using the app.
Please add video messages capability!
by Xsimsssss on 2018/05/29 23:50
This app has definitely come a long way from when it was still Google Voice. I'm glad picture/gif messages are finally allowed but now the app just needs to be stepped up just a bit more and allow to send/receive video messages. On more than one occasion, I find out later someone has sent me a video but I didn't even get an error message acknowledging any message was attempted so I wasn't aware. Please add video soon. Or even just email us the video! Everything loads so slowly if it ever gets through. Sometimes, I get repeated messages twice in a row. And other times messages are lagged or out of order and don't appear until I manually exit and enter the app again. I have to do that to refresh the app it seems. Currently, it won’t let me send any messages. It keeps saying “Failed to send. Touch to retry.” So I can’t even use the app to send out anything for hours now.
No flaws really
by SHAHDUDE.W on 2020/07/29 03:03
Hangouts is just what you need for a calm, organized place to keep track of chatting between your so-and-so friends, or some colleagues. There are no flaws, even though people are saying so. Why? Because it does not have special features! This does not mean that Hangouts is unbalanced or flawed! It doesn’t NEED to have a lot of features, it is good enough already. You don’t need anything else on Hangouts, because it ALREADY has more than enough features! There are no flaws that actually count. Hangouts has everything necessary to chat in private, or in groups. It has stickers, emojis that come with it, (and on some iOS devices,) you can take pictures and videos to send on Hangouts, and even calling! Hangouts is all you need.
5 stars in development
by drkimlive on 2020/06/23 23:56
I used to recommend hang outs specifically for all things grad student related outside of blackboard communications —— (now canvas communications). I also used to recommend all my providers and groups obtain a g-voice number to use with their g- (e)mails ... this was for their own protection in terms of setting healthy boundaries for work and avoiding burn-out since they could set “rules” for when they were accepting work calls, etc. This applied only to educational professionals since most health care professionals need to accept emergency calls (a requirement to practice with managed health care, in addition to the hippa aspects, constraints, as well as the guidelines most entities require with EMR and information being communicated directly in and through their systems). I have more recently started using it for personal communications and am seeing if it can function as a viable replacement for messenger in terms of trying to contain my personal communications into one forum.... I’m not sure yet. It seems to be working okay for the most part so far, but I’m not really doing the things I formerly did so my results might be skewed.... So far... so good. I will write more when I know more.
Google Hangouts-Your least Known App/Service You Probably Have Already
by Russwethet2013 on 2020/04/24 07:14
I don't give favorable reviews too often. This was an exception. I have been a user of Google Hangouts for some time. I’m a user both on the iOS platform as well as on PC and Mac platforms. I think it’s an understated and underutilized product. For those that have experience in Asia, Line here is very dominant. Google Hangouts has characteristics of Line, Skype, and iMessage. I feel it's a productivity multiplier because I can be work in any laptop OS (and I suppose even on Linux) and work interchangeably with a mobile platform. I critically find it useful with students or colleagues I'm collaborating with as it allows me to stay in a Google workflow for efficiency. I will warn you once you start using it on a computer platform, you probably find yourself using a lot. So why isn’t Google promoting this in a better manner? My guess, like a lot of things they purchase, it was an acquisition incorporated into their ecosystem, but they haven't done a great job of differentiating or promoting it. I would ask Google to keep this app. If you haven't tried it, kick the tires on this app/service either on your phone or on a browser on which you're logged into Google.
GREAT APP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by Gmons $ on 2018/03/11 21:36
I have an iPhone, I always wanted a quick and easy way to communicate with my friends that don’t have an Apple devices. I did not want to you sms, and I do not have any social media. This is equivalent to iMessage and maybe even better! I love the way this app functions. I am a kid that likes easy and simple to use apps, and this is one of them. I love all the ways to have chats and all the multi person calls. This app is an amazing app to use for studying with your friends. It really is better than calling a bunch of people at different times, and even if I use one phone to do everyone, it is not as clear as google hangouts. I love this app and hope to see more like this in the near future. Thank you so much google 👍👍😀😀😃😄😁😜😜😉😁😁
I <3 Hangouts~
by lilonacucomber on 2020/07/17 22:08
I use hangouts more than messages 😜, the main reason is cause my friend can’t use messages. I recommend hangouts, the only thing I can complain (maybe two things) about this is that sometimes when you are on a call, and on the same device, you play some type of game, it gets glitchy and sometimes kicks you out of the call. I recommend, if you are playing a game and calling, it’s better to use two devices, call on one, play on another. The stickers that they add, are ADORABLE! Making a group chat can sometimes can be wacky, I had a hard time 😅. Between messages and hangouts, which is better? On my opinion, I don’t really know, I think they are equal. Hangouts is awesome! You really should download it!
Great for keeping in touch!
by His princessa <3 xD on 2020/04/08 20:16
Hello Google, just wanted to say I’ve been using this app since mid-March of 2019 and it has been the best. I didn’t know about this app until me and my partner tried to look for a texting-only app that reduces our data usage. The stickers are amazing, and so are the notifications and ringtone sounds. Only small thing I don’t like is taking pictures: it snaps the pic and instantly sends it without previewing. Another thing would be that for me, if my phone is ever turned off and I turn it on again, I open this app and it comes out as the welcome screen and it loads for minutes unless if I exit the app and go back in to find it normal. Once again thank you for making this app and please don’t get rid of it!
Hangouts is our Heart-line!
by Salonemom on 2019/04/08 21:07
I am so grateful for Hangouts! My son is in Sierra Leone West Africa for 2 years and this is our main source of communication with him. As soon as he is set up in an Internet cafe and online, he initiates the chat. We have a group set up and as soon as we see his message, we jump! Our whole family, who is scattered around is able to get on and we can chat if able. If not, we can read what we have missed and join in when we can. It’s our lifeline but better yet, our heart-line! We can’t do video chats because the computers in the cafes don’t have cameras but we are happy to able to live chat with him, send pics instantly, laugh, cry and all the rest. Thank you so much for allowing this amazing service! It’s a gift!
It’s a great app, but there are some issues
by NutritousCookie on 2019/06/13 07:19
I use this app on a daily basis and it’s probably one of the best chatting apps out there. I love the fact that you can add anyone you want via email, and it’s super easy as well! I also enjoy that you can see when each message was sent and such, but there’s one thing that makes this app difficult to use. On any mobile divide I use, new or old, big or small, it always seems to lag heavily and crash easily even when I’m just simply sending texts to my best friend. What really bothered me the most was when it took me over a minute just to turn off the notifications for a group chat I was on. If there is any solution to this problem I am open to hear it because this lag issue is starting to get frustrating.
A Cure For Social Distancing
by Axel.Hunter on 2020/03/27 15:37
I haven’t had the chance to even see my friends for at least two weeks now. But, with Hangouts, we are able to do video calls (usually a normal thing that happens daily over this break) and catch up with each other. We can also enable the camera option if we want to see each other, and enable mute if we have to do something that might sound annoying to the people we are chatting to. The only problem I’ve had with it is that the audio sometimes glitches out and you can’t really distinguish what the other person is saying, and sometimes the website on computers crash and make everything glitched for at least ten minutes (probably not related to the app), but besides that, it’s a real life saver.
Crashes and Ringtones
by Tiny Poll on 2018/07/26 23:33
I love hangouts! I’m 13 years old and I use it all the time to contact my friends. It is also helpful with gathering homework during the school year with friends. You don’t need a phone number to use it, just an email account. It has a nice layout, and YOU get to decide your profile pic. I also have iMessage, but I personally like hangouts better. One problem: hangouts doesn’t allow you to have different ringtones for different people, which is why sometimes I use iMessage more. Another problem: IT KEEPS CRASHING! I would be grateful if you could fix this. I’m writing this review because hangouts just crashed. Please consider adding ringtone choices and fixing the crashes. -Alexandra

It’s a great app! There are some glitches where it stops responding but it’s a great app. Some things I wish it would add is like able to add a story like Insta and Snap bc I want my friends to know what I’m doing without texting it to them and seeming annoying.

I downloaded this app like a dumbass to see something and they tried to scam me 1,200$ for a “surgery” I looked up what the scams look like and it was a fake one to lose a chunk of money and they would spread something horrible I suggest this app to be deleted FOREVER
Can’t block spammers from the app
by wewereangels on 2020/10/17 02:17
The app has no feature to block and report spammers. Blocking a number involves going to the Google Hangouts website. If you’re blocking multiple numbers be sure to refresh between blocks. The site deleted the wrong conversation because the list of conversations didn’t update after the last block. I’m annoyed that I lost record of a project that I did.
Cool but weird
by M.Ulukaya on 2020/10/16 22:14
In this app you can text and call, however you can only call the people that say ok. But I sent a message and it never delivered so I’m just trying it out and you know that I’m not happy.
Stay I touch
by TDG&H on 2020/10/16 21:56
Good text, phone and privacy but cannot delete a contact which I did one time but unable to remember! Wish I could go back over all the texts ever since inception! App should verify all who use to ensure no nefarious content!

New feature requested.

Hangouts is a cool app and all... but it would be really handy if you could delete certain messages. And be able to go to the very beginning of the conversation.

Hangouts contacts profile pic
by SAK092179 on 2020/10/14 13:43
2nd review....here we go again the icons are disappearing Again &amp; the only way to get them back is to flippin delete the app and reinstall!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a waste. You must have smarter people working there that can fix the issue!!!! This ONLY happens on iphone Everything was going great till last week when all of a sudden google removes one of my contacts profile picture only on my iPhone 6s. It does NOT happen on any other device. I have sent messages to google who have not replied whatsoever I even pretty much almost completely reset my phone and still having an issue. Please advise how this can be fixed!!! This issue still is not rectified as even on my iPhone XS I am still having the same issue. The icon pics still suddenly disappear and to tell me to just delete and reinstall is bs because this I do a dozen times a day time to ditch google
Love it BUT
by Isnand on 2020/10/13 23:58
I’ve used this app for years but recently it’s gotten annoying. I’ll send a message and when I get back in the app to reply again, the last message I sent will be back in the chat again and I have to hold delete until it goes away, it only does this with the app and not the website. It gets rather annoying especially when my message was very long and I have to hold delete for along time just to reply again. I’ve sent in a complaint about this to the support page and of course got no reply on how to fix it or if it will be fixed. Again the app is great BUT that needs fixed as well as the ability to delete friends or block friends from the app. If you wish to delete someone you no longer talk to you have to go to the website on a computer which is a pain
Awesome communication app!😂😂😂
by areman2w on 2020/10/13 19:37
Is a great communication app, especially if you want to chat while calling, I mean, on regular call you have to message with the little green bar on the top with only audio, but with hangouts you get the audio video deal!
My Hangouts opinion...

Good messaging app , also the calls are clear and stable. But this lacks in messaging features like the ones in messenger.

by Chicken Veah girl on 2020/10/12 04:49
I love this app! I used to have messenger and me and my friends would do homework and study together but one day my friends mom didn’t want her on messenger. I used TextNow because it gave a free phone number because I don’t have one. I didn’t like the ads and it didn’t have a video call option. I was looking when I found tons of apps but my friend’s mom didn’t let her have any of them. I did google meet with my friends but I wanted a video call built in app. When I found this. My mom let me have it and my friends mom. My friend started texting and calling me and it’s so much fun. I think hangouts is faster on a mobile device and I tested it. I love this app and hope it stays 😀😀😀😊😊😊😻😻😻 Thanks Google! 💬

This is the most used app by scammers because it is not a secure app and there is no way to report scammers on this app also.

by rachuwu on 2020/10/11 00:03
i love this app! it helps me keep in touch with my friends 24/7. problem is, it glitches like crazy. it won’t let me call sometimes and when i do call, my phone keeps turning on and off. it also doesn’t show anyone’s profile pictures anymore. another thing is sometimes i call it says i have another incoming call when i don’t and it’s really annoying. i suggest using this app as a last resort :)

I love using this app.. but it’s need new update to avoid crashing
It can do better
by Mintro❤️ on 2020/10/09 11:05
You can’t send audio flies 😤it’s so limited you cant even delete messages (like imagine you send smth that you didn’t intend to.. mistakes happen yko) also make sharing more interesting.. like when I link my friend a YouTube video, it just shows the link that’s boring... and the emojies like wack I used they looked the same on laptop and phone.
Three errors
by hangouts user 10000 on 2020/10/09 06:35
Error 1 Sometimes I make typos while typing fast and there is no way to delete it Error 2 I hv put notifications and number of notifications above icon Tho sometimes even after I check Hangouts and clear the notifications it still says 1 message above icon Error 3 On my pc I take advantage of all the cool emojis like /happy and /me ETC... but it doesn’t work on my iPad Please fix all 3 errors Otherwise I think it is a great app and I use it all the time And have several contacts

True or false?
by shopkins girl! on 2020/10/08 17:41
I keep getting this! Is it true or false? Dear Hangouts members, Hangouts is supposed to close Nov 7, 2020 because it has become too populated. There have been many members complaining that Hangouts has become very slow. indicate that there are many active members of Hangouts but also many new members. We will send this message to see if the members are active or not. If you are active please send to 15 other users using copy and paste to show that you are still active. Those who do not send this message within 2 weeks will be deleted without hesitation to make more space. Send this message to all your friends to show that you are active
The app needs features and updates
by Quanbwoy on 2020/10/08 15:40

Hangouts is a great way to communicate with your friends. It was especially useful during COVID 19. I could talk with friends so we could still chat. You can send photos and stickers and even do a google meet with them. You should really try Hangouts! It’s a great app!
Poor volume
by Gnarly bro! on 2020/10/07 18:19
Poor volume is the beginning. The video takes up so much bandwidth. No one in the house can use the wifi when I’m on hangouts. That’s how data greedy hangouts is, like a kid that doesn’t know how to share their toys. They should’ve bought WhatsApp when they had the chance. Now FB is slowly ruining what could’ve been great with Google infrastructure. Go watch Silicon Valley and make the video code better! Sound volume will come naturally after that.

Good but could be better

Audio Problem
by DNA_ on 2020/10/05 18:18
I’m not sure why this happens, but every time i call via phone, the audio is incredibly low, which is frustrating because I always end up switching to my laptop thus defeating the purpose of a hangouts app in the first place.

Dark mode
by Amber 0^0 on 2020/10/04 23:42
Hangouts is slow a bit but other then that I think it works completely fine!! I would like a feature so that you could delete contacts instead of just archive. And I would really really really love a dark mode

I do love hangouts it a way I can talk to my buddies.There is some cute Easter eggs too which I love! I have some suggestions and things I want to change. I feel like There needs to be some more options.You should have an option we’re you can have a sleep mode to show your asleep so your friends know.Its so annoying 🙄 when my friends are messaging me so much at night.I feel like there should be an option to customize the color of your hangout.Green just looks boring no offense We need options or possibly a customizable photo back ground on your hangouts.The thing that bugs me the most is the status updates.I feel the status updates should be easier to see.Like when Your messaging a friend and you want to let them know your status cause they wanna call.It should be By the persons name when they text and it should have a scroll through of all there status.I really want you to add is funny filters and customizable stickers.It would give you some Difference from other messaging apps.Thank you for reading this It’s not a bad app it needs room for Improvements👁👄👁

Very good :) some minor issues
by Cat :D 😹😹 on 2020/06/14 18:01
Google hangouts is a very good app and I use it all the time. I talk to my friends and work on projects for school. I love using the app and there aren’t many issues I have to face with. Other than just a few minor issues (some may be due to my knowledge on how to use the app) for me the worst thing on hangouts is when you have hangouts calls. They are very glitchy and it makes it hard to hear what people are saying. So , I tried fixing my WiFi but that didn’t help either. Many of my friends also told me about this problem before so we just use google meet. Which is actually really good and I get a crisp sound. I also have a problem with calling on hangouts for some reason on my phone the volume is very low and if I call on my iPad it’s normal. Idk if it’s a problem with my phone but every time I use the call on my phone that happens. But I get over it. Otherwise I definitely recommend getting hangouts. It’s a very good app and has many good uses.
Needs work but good
by Tamara01 on 2020/09/09 12:33
I don’t like the fact that you cannot delete contacts from your Hangouts. For example if you no longer talking to this person/Company there’s no way of deleting their name phone number from Hangouts. So they stay there forever. Which I cannot stand. There has to be a way that Google can add the option to remove contacts from hang out. Another pet peeve that I have is deletingSomething you sent by accident, maybe it was a typo in there but there’s no way of deleting something that you are ready send, or even deleting a picture that you no longer want there. The only option they give you is to archive and I don’t want to archive things I want to be able to delete things. So Google has a little bit of work to do with this great app that I think it is. Sometimes it calls won’t go through when you’re calling overseas sometimes the calls are not even clear because of maybe the condition of the weather or whatever is going on they still have to work on that, but overall it’s a good app. So that’s why I gave it three stars for now until they update and work on those issues. One more thing if you block somebody and they try to call you it comes through as unknown hang out caller, and there’s no way finding out who is trying to call you. There should be a way of knowing who is calling you.
Hangouts
by Cherie_the_Awesome_ on 2020/06/11 00:47
Hangouts is cool and you can add a lot of people to chat with! But there is a just a teeny little problem, we can call each other but still chat in the call not go into the hangouts app just staying at the call and not leaving to go chat in the normal place. You have to go try on the computer to do it and sometimes you can’t hear your friends voice sometimes. But I love it still no matter how good or bad it is! And you can log into any account but at the beginning you have to use gmail. But my friends at school have been sending invites in my school account and i didn’t know i could make another account and that i didn’t know my school email would work! That’s why hangouts is still good and it will always be forever! At least it is bad and PLEASE DON’T GET RID OF THIS. I say that because i don’t have every friend i can talk to on messages and that’s why i also use hangouts so i can talk with other friends! So if you do get rid of this i am going to help raise this level. ( i love is so I’m still giving it a 5 star rating because even with teeny problems, you have to ignore then to help go do the right thing and don’t do the bad !)

So far, so good! Finally, one that actually works for free!
by ChattanoogaMommy on 2020/09/22 13:20
Having lost my income, and Congress failing to act on a new unemployment stimulus, I’ve lost my car, my phones, and my internet. With two immune compromised babies at home- not having a phone is a dangerous risk. I’ve tried all the calling apps and they’re great for the first day- until you need to make any important phone calls. Then you’ll find out why the app is “free” which is only free if you don’t need it for anything remotely important. So imagine my surprise when I finally decide to try “hangouts”. I though it was just like a video chat kind of app, like a Google version of Messenger kind of think. I suppose in many ways it is, but much better. I’ve been able to call ANY number I need, no issues, no insane survey lists that never truly end and never give a single reward. No monthly fee requests to upgrade (YET lol). The ONLY issue so far is that I don’t appear to have a phone number when I call people, so they are not able to call me back. But as an introvert, I support I could think of much worse things to happen in life. So far, so good. Will update if anything changes.
Hangouts - College Buds from all parts of the Country- still best friends
by Bryan_johnson23 on 2020/03/14 15:09
So... I graduated college in 2009 from University of Oklahoma. I had a group of 8 guys that were best of friends. We all moved to various parts of the country afterwards for jobs, girls, etc. We were out of touch for a few years - except for the occasional Fantasy Football trash talking during 4 months/yr. We joined Hangouts in 2012 and have been chatting on this daily (yes... daily) since then. Marriages, kids &amp; all of life’s struggles &amp; achievements have been chronicled since. There may only be a few short chats a day or entire pages &amp; pages of back &amp; forth. Google Hangouts has been the one place that has kept us guys connected and best of friends since college. Also, probably the reason we could never run for office one day if we wanted...lol... but that’s neither here nor there. Highly recommend this chatting app and hope it never goes away. Lastly, one of the only apps I know that offers Video Chat for up to 10 people at once. We’ve played fantasy football bets &amp; drinking games on more than a few occasions with all 8 of us on the video chat. Super Cool.
Not private
by flipfoster on 2020/08/22 09:22
This platform has so many problems it is pathetic for one it is not private I know for a fact that my conversations have been hacked into also what is up with your messages centipedeing all over the place when you are trying to type or dictate a full message, why don&#39;t you have the capability to make corrections after the message has posted and the hacker has hacked up the message to where it doesn&#39;t make any sense you should be able to delete that message before the person it was intended for have time to read it, that is what I mean someone is able to hack this platform and completely ruin your day. Why are you not allowed to change the type size to make the print smaller or larger, the hacker has that capability because they keep changing my print size from normal to very small and to very large. Why can&#39;t you control the volume on the notifications to something that you could hear instead of just that one little ding I want to be able to put my own notification sound on it not what hangouts allows me to have and it should have a tone to let you know a new message has just arrived. I have come to the conclusion that anything that Google has anything to do with can be spied on by them and they do and also by hackers so don&#39;t think that your conversations are private.
Thank you Google!
by XxGalaxyxX94 on 2020/06/22 04:04
Hai google! Some of my friends aren’t old enough to have a phone number, so they use Google Hangouts to talk to me! You can FaceTime, Voice call, send pictures and more. I do have one complaint, if a friend updates there google name or profile picture I have to update the app!! Very frustrating... if you do have a phone number you can make a new contact, add a friends email, and then change the name to whatever you want it to be! You then have to update the app. That’s just a trick I picked up :) If your an adult and ate thinking about downloading this app for them I have a few things to say.. you can be texted by any person who has your email, but before they can chat with you, you have to accept there request. On Google Hangouts there is no access to the internet, unless somebody sends you a link. I love this app! Oh!! I almost forgot!! You can make a group chat and video call them all, and if you don’t wanna show your face you can mute yourself and turn off your camera. I’m running out of space so I&#39;m gonna stop writing. Shine on Google Hangouts!! ⭐️💝
Hangouts features/flexibility beat Duo
by SysOp404 on 2020/03/01 00:01
Is a laugh to read all the fake reviews and nonsense that kids are writing to hype Duo. Hangouts is obviously a full-featured, all-around cross-platform app, while Duo is little more than a one-trick pony (OK... let&#39;s give it the two-trick benefit-of-doubt here.) Hangouts allows voice calls with all mobile and landline voice numbers, with no Hangouts app needed by the other parties. Hangouts supports texting between any phone numbers that allow texting - again without a Hangouts app needed by the others. Hangouts ONLY requires using the app or website to do video calls with others. The quality of Duo video IS generally better than Hangouts video, but that alone certainly doesn&#39;t make up for Duo&#39;s major limitation of no connectivity of any kind, to most phone numbers. (Duo uses phone numbers only for identifying which Duo apps to connect together.) ALL parties must be using a Duo app or the website. You definitely won&#39;t be calling all phone numbers with the very limited Duo app.
Having issues
by YMFDM on 2020/06/24 03:35
I really like the app for the fact that it allows me to stay in contact with my girlfriend while she is deployed overseas to some less than desirable locations. What I don’t like is that the only way I get message notifications is if I have the phone unlocked and the app open. Otherwise, I have no idea when she sends a message. I’ve checked my notification settings many times. I’ve even deleted and reinstalled the app a couple times. Another minor annoyance is the refresh time. Most evenings I open the app on the phone and iPad both so we can have something close to a real-time conversation. I have to continually exit out of and re-enter the app on both devices in order to get the latest messages in a timely manner. If not, there may be a 30-90 second delay between when it shows up on one until it shows up on the other. For us this is a big issue because we have a very limited amount of time together when we get to chat. Maximizing the time available is quite important. Other than that, I think it’s pretty good.
Pretty cool.
by Oodleade on 2018/08/24 18:06
I’ve been using this app for three years now and it works pretty good. There are times when it glitches out (the screen freezes, the keyboard disappears, messages won’t send etc) but those glitches are less common now. When it comes to video chatting in large groups, sometimes it overloads it and everyone freezes but that can be fixed by everyone (except for one person) hanging up and re-joining. There was one time when the video chatting system barely worked but that was a while ago. Overall, it’s a really useful app for people who can’t afford phones or data because it can be used on almost any device. Half the time I forget I’m using an app and just feel like I’m texting instead. Oh, and the screen will show who is there in the chat with you, when a message was wrote, and if someone is typing or deleting something in a message. I always found that to be a fun and useful feature.
Hangouts Positives and Negatives
by michelle lee :) on 2020/05/01 02:49
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
Amazing app! Just some minor issues...
by Victor Sevier on 2020/06/29 19:05
This app works great! It has every single bit of necessary functions that the desktop version has, and it works great! (Well, I haven’t tried to use the video call feature, sorry!) Anyways, it works great, it actually syncs the chats very well and it actually does everything the desktop version does! And it’s not like some crappy port of the desktop app, it actually works! But here’s my issue, and this is for anyone using an iPad, I wish this app would have multitasking support because as of right now, when I try to use multitasking, it doesn’t work. I want to try and experiment with this feature so when I need to do something else at the same time, and chat with others, I would probably need it, but since I don’t chat a lot on it, I don’t really care. Overall, it works great and looks great! Good job, Google. Oh, and 1 more thing. Please add Dark Mode support, it would be much appreciated.
Great, but why are you killing it in 2020?
by 7/8Time on 2019/12/06 07:21
I use this app to chat with my buddies informally. Your new apps, Chat and Meet, split hangouts for no apparent reason, into a video app and a text app. Why...? I am completely baffled. Please explain why these new professional apps are better than the tried-and-true hangouts. What split into two apps anyway? You did this with Drive, Docs, Slides, etc as well. Also, my friend (the one I talk via hangouts with) is trying to get me to move to Discord. Just saying, a lot of people will move to different apps when you kill it. And they won’t be your two new ones. Also: the bugs are racking up. It’s been saying that several messages (around 10) send since yesterday are “sending” despite my friend already having seen and responded to them. And the sendrates are getting slower. Please, just kill it quickly if you have to, instead of letting it bleed out slowly from the bugs and lags.
Love it
by EmmaMarie23 on 2019/02/10 13:40
I’ve been using hangouts for about five years now and I love it. It for sure works better on Samsung or LG products than I phone products, but there isn’t a huge difference. Sometimes it just takes a little longer to load. I like that I’m able to use it on my phone and on my laptop. I love pretty much everything about it except the new emojis. The new emojis are scary looking, I prefer the old ones. I’ve made new friends through this outlet. I even eventually met my boyfriend through this huge group chat I had started with people I knew. Those people added some people they knew and I just remember laughing a lot. I’m also able to keep in touch with a friend I met from Switzerland. My whole immediate family uses it too, we have a family group chat! If the app creators are ever looking to improve it though, they should revert back to the old emojis and maybe add some gifs. I highly recommend this app!
Solid Video Conferencing App
by Nicknameisirrelevant on 2020/03/20 14:39
We’ve recently switched to Hangouts for our virtual music lessons. I love the no-nonsense layout, and as long as you have headphones, the audio quality is comparable to other video conferencing platforms. Here’s the good: - user friendly, especially for youth. It’s a familiar layout and easy to navigate. Especially for those with limited app/tech experience - very responsive (with good internet) and for teaching, it’s nice to be in a live chat and also have the ability to send photos and files in the messaging system. - the ability to make groups is awesome - works great across all devices - unlike some other platforms, you do not have to send a “chat link” by email. Just a message within the app itself. The bad: - having a new contact go to your “invites” tab instead of your messages tab is confusing and led to a lot of lost calls in the beginning. - does not seem to play well with Safari on a computer. People trying to call through Safari tend to get a white screen and have to either switch web browsers (Chrome or Firefox) or dig around their permissions to allow Hangouts increased functionality. - sometimes the incoming call only shows up as an active gray bar within the chat itself. Misleading to new users. This only happens if the app is currently open and the chat is open. Not the end of the world, just easy to miss the call. Hope this helps!

I dearly love this google app. It’s basically the only texting program I use! It’s fairly useful, being able to create several different group chats for you and your friends, and unlike messages on apple devices, it doesn’t toggle the ability to change the name or add more people depending on the device. I once made a group chat on apple messages, and I was trying to add my whole class, though, because not everyone had apple devices, every time I needed to add a new person I had to make a whole new group chat. Sticks, right? On hangouts, I’m able to do everything apple does, but in one app. It’s a really good app! Though, I would like to add that it does have it downsides. Between me and my friends, despite how loud we are in the vid, never have any volume. Not a rustle of papers turning, not nada. I really hope you work on that, but otherwise a amazing app! Sincerely, Thestorm_fin (they/them &lt;3)
Perfect if you have no phone
by jackielands on 2019/11/07 17:07
This app is perfect if your phone got cut off or if you have no money to get service. I&#39;m able to send and receive text messages and make and receive calls without having a phone carrier. And in my book, that&#39;s wicked awesome. So far I haven&#39;t had any technical issues with the app, it&#39;s never crashed or froze on me. And I&#39;ve had a Google voice number since they first came out, I highly recommend getting one. You have to have a working number to set it up with tho but after that it stays on even if your phone gets cut off. And you can call your number from another number and then make an outgoing call that will show up as your number on the receiving phone. So that&#39;s really cool. All in all I&#39;ve just been very pleased with my Google voice and Hangouts experience. Thanks Google! You have saved me from being cut off from communication!
Data Only Cell Phone Plan?
by Danaevictoriah on 2020/06/04 15:40
So I’ve been using Google Hangouts (with Google Voice integration) as my primary phone number for texts and calls. I got use Ting as my cell phone provider. I pay for what I use. My cell phone bill has been $9/mo. I turned off texts and calls through my ACTUAL cell phone # and only use the Google Voice/Google Hangouts #. So I only pay for data. I have WiFi pretty much everywhere I go. So texts and calls are received on WiFi through this app. It’s worked well enough...not perfect. But more than I could ask for of any other service or app. This one is definitely the best in its class for this type of thing. But the main issues were: * Phone often doesn’t ring when someone is calling you. * Call history is super messed up. For some reason it only recorded outgoing calls made from that device. So the iPad says something different than my iPhone. * Can’t add a new contact within the app. Must copy the number, go to native contacts app, create new contact, paste the number. * Call quality was good on WiFi, but unreliable call quality when relying on my data to make a call through this app. Which MIGHT have been more the fault of my cell phone provider? Not sure... Some of these things might be fixed in soon-to-release updates. These issues weren’t enough to make me resist $9/mo WiFi.
Best App!
by RutHenry on 2019/04/05 07:06
I absolutely love using Google Hangouts! Since 2016, I’ve been using this app and have gotten countless peers to download and use it as well! As a university student, it has allowed me to effectively communicate with the many groups I’ve had to work with throughout the semesters. It makes group meetings a breeze, as you can track who is in the conversation, it eliminates the need for keeping minutes as the conversations are saved in their entirety until you decide to leave the group chat, and the voice and video call features are easy to use. I love that you can participate with only voice in the video option! Overall, Google Hangouts is by far my number one chat app! If you don’t have it, or think “Yeah okay, it’s just like messenger, or all the rest,” you’re wrong! You should definitely download and use this app regularly!! I’d give it 10 stars if I could!
Meh
by Smackadoo u on 2020/07/18 14:24
Do not use with strangers they will have your email if you do. Beware of scammers (anyone you don’t know) asking to message you through hangouts. It is good for staying connected especially with groups. I wish there was a way to just react to a message without actually responding like I can do with my texts on my phone or the “like” feature on other social apps. Also you cannot flip through pictures in the group using iOS you have to open each picture then close before opening the next. Also you cannot message a gif straight from the app in iOS, I have to copy and paste. It would also be great to be able to search within a thread like when we are planning an event, or just to remember a detail about something that was said. Basically it isn’t the best for being social, but is more for just staying connected through quick texts in a separate app that doesn’t have to bother individuals in a group that hate being bombarded with group texts on their phone. It is pretty good with video chats. Easy for many people to use and less interruptions than Skype, less reliable than FaceTime or Zoom though. But I can use it with people that don’t have apple and the time isn’t limited. It really is free and you can use it across all devices or computers. Some glitches and bugs, but they usually fix it fairly quickly or I am able to reset things and it works it out on its own (just slightly inconvenient).
Worked great until it didn't, repetitively messed up my phone, can't uninstall
by NocturnaTheWarrior on 2020/07/19 18:52
It worked great for a while, but it often didn&#39;t notify me of new messages. Then it just straight-up wouldn&#39;t work and constantly messed up my phone. It would freeze up and the only way to get it to work again was to wait Multiple Days for my phone to die. Sometimes I couldn&#39;t open the app (a lot of the time, actually). Sometimes I&#39;d open it just to have it crash. So I uninstalled it. Only to find that every time I power my phone back on or connect to wifi or renew my phone service it reinstalls. Meanwhile, it Still says I have the app in my settings, no matter how many times I click &#39;delete app&#39; as soon as I go back to the manage storage page it&#39;s listed again. I DON&#39;T WANT THIS APP ON MY PHONE ANYMORE!! IT MESSES IT UP AND NEVER WORKS!!! Tell me google, why can&#39;t I remove your apps? What are you doing to my phone? How do I know you&#39;re not stealing my information? I mean, of course you do, that&#39;s how you make your money, but I mean off-Google stealing info. You have no idea how much it bothers me that I can&#39;t remove this app...
Never stop supporting it!!!
by BlackRose0924 on 2017/10/13 19:59
I&#39;ve been using Google Hangouts since 2013 as one of my main forms of communication. I&#39;ve liked the interface for all the years I&#39;ve used it and all of the improvements from sending multiple photos to sending your location to your friend(s), to even the animated emoji gumdrop gifs that you could send dubbed &#34;stickers&#34; (which are still cute as hell)! It&#39;s basically a triple threat app that needs to still be relevant if Google expects to compete with Apple in any way. It has FaceTime, Phone, and iMessage all in one and it&#39;s taken for granted every single day as it loses support for the newer apps like Allo and Duo. It&#39;s frustrating to see Allo and Duo catch on when they&#39;re two separate apps that can do what Hangouts has been doing for years. Keep it around, update it, don&#39;t let it die! Update: On iOS 11.0.3, it seems it’s having some issues with photos? Whenever I try to go to my photos directly inside the app and share a photo, it won’t let me. It’ll tell me to Cancel or Choose, and when I tap Choose, it slide over and shows the photo with no way to go back to typing or viewing my conversation. I have to forcibly close the app. Another issue would be that it won’t let me share my gifs via the share extension. It does allow me to share, but it freezes the gifs in place, making them a still. I hope you guys resolve this problem. It’s a great app that still deserves support.
Good for the most part except...
by Grey's Mom on 2018/08/17 12:11
Sometimes hangouts will just decide that they aren’t going to deliver any of my messages to a particular contact. And I cannot send messages to them on hangouts from my phone unless I delete the app and redownload it. It usually starts when I try to send the message when I don’t have great service. Instead of just holding onto it and sending it when I get in service, or showing “message send fail” it actually just says “sending....” into perpetuity. It never sends it. And it never marks as send fail. This has happened 3-4 times, and don’t understand why. It doesn’t change when I do a full restart of the phone. And yet, when I message the person from my desktop/gmail website, it not only sends, but the sent message appears on my hangouts app in real time. I just can’t respond from the app. Please fix this bug!
Good overall, but horrible problems
by ColleenCKing on 2019/10/09 21:02
I’ve been using this app three years, and until a few days ago I have had no complaints. But three days ago, I opened hangouts and found I had been locked out of the account I use for %90 of my conversations (it is a school account which I use because the school gives everyone an email address and most of my friends just use that email and don’t have a personal one). This has happened before, so I immediately went to the “add account” option. After completing the process it sent me back to the home screen with a little message reading “unable to add account”. I went through this process multiple times on both of the devices I use hangouts on, and found that it won’t let me add any other emails. I have tried to find helpful videos and websites and haven’t had luck, and I would vastly appreciate advice and explanation from the Hangouts team.
Great but one irritating problem..
by Annonymous Oreo on 2018/09/30 04:49
This app is very nice to communicate to people who don’t have numbers and only emails. There is an option to show if we are online or offline. Most of my contacts in Hangouts have that feature on. But, one person has two accounts synced to one email (Or one email synced to two accounts I think it’s both the same) and it NEVER gives me an accurate answer if she’s active or not. Sometimes, the icon of her profile picture fades and comes back repeatedly even with a chat bubble saying she’s typing, I don’t get a reply. And when I check, it says she’s active, I check AGAIN 20 minutes later.. it says she’s active! Then an hour later, it says she was active 2 hours ago. And I don’t understand why. I’m not saying that Hangouts is a bad app, I’m just saying they need to fix the inaccurate information.
nope
by iamthatfreespirit on 2020/03/13 18:21
this app is crap compared to messenger and that is really saying something. on iphone6 it is nearly impossible to even see the messages due to the tiny strip of screen which remains when one has the keyboard up to type (the resolution is formatted for longer screens). the kb is supposed to swipe down but doesnt work easily. it creates a lot of lag and is frustrating. it also doesnt let one select multiple pictures for a message, so one has to send them one at a time. and fhere is no tab to see photos one has sent, like messenger. there are also no reacts on messages which do come in handy and save some time and typing. anyway it is /ok/, i suppose. it’s just about usable but not at all high calibre. very beta and glitchy. i would have expected better quality from google. you own the internet, ya think you could make a decent messenging app. oh also the sticker oacks are weird and ugly lol. AND Fb just made messenger 1/4 of the size it was. it is now only 36mb whereas hangouts is 100+mb. fail
Good App,but needs some good help.
by Meep 🤭 on 2019/09/22 11:38
I can finally be able to text relatives that have different types of phones than me! I don’t have a SIM card, there is no point! With this app I have the thing I want. This is one of the best apps ever. I would recommend it!! I love the kitty stickers. I like to send them to relatives. They are funny. I also like that you can select the pictures you want to send to them. Whenever I want to call them, this wonderful app is able to call them! There is also FaceTiming. This app is a very good app, but sometimes I regret texting on it. There are big things like when I type in a email then it pops up two. I always click the wrong one. Please fix that. I would give this app 5 star if you fixed that. Another thing that I want them to fix is they should have one more stickers. In conclusion, this is one of the best apps ever! Rated: 3 star Not good for sending funny stickers and not good with emails.
Hangouts forever
by Rainb0w«^„^» on 2019/05/05 06:38
I’ve been using google hangouts for almost 8 years now and I love it. I got to choose my own number and my number didn’t change even though I had stopped using hangouts for quite some time. My number wasn’t recycled or given to someone else like most of the other texting and calling apps. With google hangouts once you get your number that’s your number forever until you decide to either delete your google hangouts account or change the number yourself, and even after you die the number will still be yours. I love hangouts and I’d seriously recommend that everyone should have a google hangouts app and number. I’ve had not one issue with this app and I can use it anywhere as long as I have either cell service with data or on WiFi.
Use the google apps
by CentralUnitedCoach on 2019/01/09 23:17
I have just graduated with my masters and after 6 years of use, I can attest that the suite of apps by google are smooth and easy and efficient. The only issues that ever arise have been with much older people that still use AOL or other outdated browsers and communication systems. The suite has fast and lite functionality for the whole team. MS office systems are slow and sketchy by comparison. Excel still has more functionality, but hardly anyone uses it anymore. Hangouts is an allin one solution for communication across teams. I can work on any system all day, sharing tools and screens, docs, and making meeting notes. Everyone gets connected and stuff gets done. It’s a major corporate conference tool at the google speed and availability. Use it or be an oldie that thinks the internet is just hype.
Unable To Receive Calls & Notifications
by TM70s on 2020/04/09 16:37
Since this update, I am unable to receive any real-time call notifications to my Google Voice number in the Hangouts app. This is my first time ever having this issue as a long time user. My settings are unchanged in my iPhone for receiving all notifications for Google Voice Hangouts inbound calls. Calls to my number ring on the callers end. Also, I am not receiving notifications in the Hangouts app when voicemails are left. I do not have my Google Voice number forwarded to any other number. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Hangouts today (Apr 9th) without any resolve. Not a good time for this issue to arise. - NOTE: I have Hangouts installed on an older iPhone (running 12.4.5) and it too will not provide any inbound call notifications whenever someone calls my Google Voice number. Also, I am not getting Google Voice Hangouts voicemail notifications on this old iPhone either when previously I could. (Outbound calls from the Hangouts app on either phone is NOT an issue.)
Good
by daliajalia on 2019/01/24 23:34
I’ve used google hangouts for about 2-3 years now. I call everyday on hangouts with my close friends. The app is actually really good. I like how you can easily communicate with your friends and people on here. It’s easy to call on the platform too. The only thing is that sometimes, the app would crash all of a sudden. I would click on the app and as I was about to message a friend, the app crashed and would act stupid. However, the app is just fine. It only has crashed on me about 4-5 times. I think that should be improved. Also, I feel like the ring tone can get annoying at times, so if they had options for ring tones, that would be much better. Other than that, the app is really good and I recommend it to chat with your friends, family, and other people. • &lt;3 •
Please don’t get rid of Hangouts!!
by It's such a big number? on 2019/04/04 14:56
I’ve had google hangouts for several years now. Hangouts is a great messaging system, and since I am a student, very useful for communications about school-related topics. Google hangouts is used by literally everyone I know. That is why I am confused with why Hangouts is going to get cut— students can connect through hangouts, and is one of the few messaging systems available for everyone (Messages require having a phone, Facebook has strict rules about age and name, and other social networking doesn’t have messaging systems as universal and useful as Hangouts). Overall, I would say Google Hangouts is a wonderful plus to the online community, and because of the fact that it is email-based, everyone can use it. Please don’t get rid of hangouts!
A few bugs
by give me a tacocat on 2019/08/06 01:55
1 why do notifications only show one badge per conversation, even if i have a group chat send 150 text, it says that there is only one. Idk if this was on purpose or not, and it could be my phone, but it’s rly annoying. 2 profile pics are becoming really broken, in a group chat with 16 people that i am in, two of them don’t have their profiles showing, even tho they have a pic attached to their profile, also, half of the group sees my profile pic as the one that i had 2 months ago, when i have changed it 3 times since then, not to mention how many people’s i can’t see up to date, the avatar system is super buggy for some reason, idk if this is on purpose to draw ppl away from the app when they shut it down so it doesn’t cause as many problems, but I wish it was fixed
Great App.
by ✨💖Sylveon💖✨ on 2020/03/12 05:51
I’ve been using Hangouts for over a year now and it’s a really good app. But recently the icons to my contacts have disappeared, just leaving an L. I know this doesn’t really hinder the effectiveness of the app, I want to know why this is. Also. Sometimes it fails to notify me if someone messages me, making me miss their message for over an hour. And it also continues to delete conversations. This annoys me a lot. I know it may be for space or compatibility but I still don’t like it. And it sometimes doesn’t send my messages causing me to have to resend it. ALSO, it won’t let me send images. I keep trying over and over but I just deletes it and says “Failed to send” even though it didn’t even try. Fix these please and I’ll give you 5. Or kill it off before everyone gets tired of other bugs and lags.
Please update and add “encryption” & Audio/Video support
by Drum Up Digital on 2019/10/05 14:22
Please update the app and add “encryption” as it is a necessity in the times we live in regarding pretty much all internet of things. I’d also suggest adding excellent support for audio/video (multimedia) files as the particular type of files are always great to have ability to send and receive. Audio/video files should look appealing within the app to assure a seamless and enjoyable experience. Also, please look into updating the app to be as visually pleasing to the eye as possible because of the new OS for the latest devices. Please consider my requests as it would greatly increase the current enjoyment of functions in an already truly wonderful app that is very much handy and well developed. Thanks for your time and attention.
Works great despite minor issues
by Scorpwhal on 2020/04/11 04:17
A lot of my friends don’t have phones compatible with iMessage, so hangouts has been a really convenient way to communicate. I have, however, encountered a few minor problems. Whenever my group and I have issues calling, we have to make an entirely new group chat in order to get it running again. Thankfully, this has only happened a couple times, but I still feel it’s something worth mentioning. I also wanted to note how certain users’ profile pictures stop appearing after a certain amount of time. This is usually fixed after deleting and redownloading the app, although it still isn’t ideal. Aside from those two things, the app runs great. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an app compatible with different smart phones.
Very good
by LEDwings on 2019/04/07 18:31
I like this app a lot. It is basically a texting app, using an email address instead of a phone number, and it also has the ability to place phone calls and video calls, also using an email address. The only issue I have noticed is in video calls, our video will sometimes turn off, and it is difficult to get it back on. It often comes back on its own eventually, but it is annoying. That may be an issue with the WiFi and not with the app, but perhaps look into it to see if there’s a way to fix the issue. I would like to be able to exit the app while videocalling, without it turning the video off. In short, the only things I’ve noticed are connected to videocalling, and even those aren’t enough to make me stop using the app.
Please add video messages capability!
by Xsimsssss on 2018/05/29 23:50
This app has definitely come a long way from when it was still Google Voice. I&#39;m glad picture/gif messages are finally allowed but now the app just needs to be stepped up just a bit more and allow to send/receive video messages. On more than one occasion, I find out later someone has sent me a video but I didn&#39;t even get an error message acknowledging any message was attempted so I wasn&#39;t aware. Please add video soon. Or even just email us the video! Everything loads so slowly if it ever gets through. Sometimes, I get repeated messages twice in a row. And other times messages are lagged or out of order and don&#39;t appear until I manually exit and enter the app again. I have to do that to refresh the app it seems. Currently, it won’t let me send any messages. It keeps saying “Failed to send. Touch to retry.” So I can’t even use the app to send out anything for hours now.
No flaws really
by SHAHDUDE.W on 2020/07/29 03:03
Hangouts is just what you need for a calm, organized place to keep track of chatting between your so-and-so friends, or some colleagues. There are no flaws, even though people are saying so. Why? Because it does not have special features! This does not mean that Hangouts is unbalanced or flawed! It doesn’t NEED to have a lot of features, it is good enough already. You don’t need anything else on Hangouts, because it ALREADY has more than enough features! There are no flaws that actually count. Hangouts has everything necessary to chat in private, or in groups. It has stickers, emojis that come with it, (and on some iOS devices,) you can take pictures and videos to send on Hangouts, and even calling! Hangouts is all you need.
5 stars in development
by drkimlive on 2020/06/23 23:56
I used to recommend hang outs specifically for all things grad student related outside of blackboard communications —— (now canvas communications). I also used to recommend all my providers and groups obtain a g-voice number to use with their g- (e)mails ... this was for their own protection in terms of setting healthy boundaries for work and avoiding burn-out since they could set “rules” for when they were accepting work calls, etc. This applied only to educational professionals since most health care professionals need to accept emergency calls (a requirement to practice with managed health care, in addition to the hippa aspects, constraints, as well as the guidelines most entities require with EMR and information being communicated directly in and through their systems). I have more recently started using it for personal communications and am seeing if it can function as a viable replacement for messenger in terms of trying to contain my personal communications into one forum.... I’m not sure yet. It seems to be working okay for the most part so far, but I’m not really doing the things I formerly did so my results might be skewed.... So far... so good. I will write more when I know more.
Google Hangouts-Your least Known App/Service You Probably Have Already
by Russwethet2013 on 2020/04/24 07:14
I don&#39;t give favorable reviews too often. This was an exception. I have been a user of Google Hangouts for some time. I’m a user both on the iOS platform as well as on PC and Mac platforms. I think it’s an understated and underutilized product. For those that have experience in Asia, Line here is very dominant. Google Hangouts has characteristics of Line, Skype, and iMessage. I feel it&#39;s a productivity multiplier because I can be work in any laptop OS (and I suppose even on Linux) and work interchangeably with a mobile platform. I critically find it useful with students or colleagues I&#39;m collaborating with as it allows me to stay in a Google workflow for efficiency. I will warn you once you start using it on a computer platform, you probably find yourself using a lot. So why isn’t Google promoting this in a better manner? My guess, like a lot of things they purchase, it was an acquisition incorporated into their ecosystem, but they haven&#39;t done a great job of differentiating or promoting it. I would ask Google to keep this app. If you haven&#39;t tried it, kick the tires on this app/service either on your phone or on a browser on which you&#39;re logged into Google.
GREAT APP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by Gmons $ on 2018/03/11 21:36
I have an iPhone, I always wanted a quick and easy way to communicate with my friends that don’t have an Apple devices. I did not want to you sms, and I do not have any social media. This is equivalent to iMessage and maybe even better! I love the way this app functions. I am a kid that likes easy and simple to use apps, and this is one of them. I love all the ways to have chats and all the multi person calls. This app is an amazing app to use for studying with your friends. It really is better than calling a bunch of people at different times, and even if I use one phone to do everyone, it is not as clear as google hangouts. I love this app and hope to see more like this in the near future. Thank you so much google 👍👍😀😀😃😄😁😜😜😉😁😁
I <3 Hangouts~
by lilonacucomber on 2020/07/17 22:08
I use hangouts more than messages 😜, the main reason is cause my friend can’t use messages. I recommend hangouts, the only thing I can complain (maybe two things) about this is that sometimes when you are on a call, and on the same device, you play some type of game, it gets glitchy and sometimes kicks you out of the call. I recommend, if you are playing a game and calling, it’s better to use two devices, call on one, play on another. The stickers that they add, are ADORABLE! Making a group chat can sometimes can be wacky, I had a hard time 😅. Between messages and hangouts, which is better? On my opinion, I don’t really know, I think they are equal. Hangouts is awesome! You really should download it!
Great for keeping in touch!
by His princessa <3 xD on 2020/04/08 20:16
Hello Google, just wanted to say I’ve been using this app since mid-March of 2019 and it has been the best. I didn’t know about this app until me and my partner tried to look for a texting-only app that reduces our data usage. The stickers are amazing, and so are the notifications and ringtone sounds. Only small thing I don’t like is taking pictures: it snaps the pic and instantly sends it without previewing. Another thing would be that for me, if my phone is ever turned off and I turn it on again, I open this app and it comes out as the welcome screen and it loads for minutes unless if I exit the app and go back in to find it normal. Once again thank you for making this app and please don’t get rid of it!
Hangouts is our Heart-line!
by Salonemom on 2019/04/08 21:07
I am so grateful for Hangouts! My son is in Sierra Leone West Africa for 2 years and this is our main source of communication with him. As soon as he is set up in an Internet cafe and online, he initiates the chat. We have a group set up and as soon as we see his message, we jump! Our whole family, who is scattered around is able to get on and we can chat if able. If not, we can read what we have missed and join in when we can. It’s our lifeline but better yet, our heart-line! We can’t do video chats because the computers in the cafes don’t have cameras but we are happy to able to live chat with him, send pics instantly, laugh, cry and all the rest. Thank you so much for allowing this amazing service! It’s a gift!
It’s a great app, but there are some issues
by NutritousCookie on 2019/06/13 07:19
I use this app on a daily basis and it’s probably one of the best chatting apps out there. I love the fact that you can add anyone you want via email, and it’s super easy as well! I also enjoy that you can see when each message was sent and such, but there’s one thing that makes this app difficult to use. On any mobile divide I use, new or old, big or small, it always seems to lag heavily and crash easily even when I’m just simply sending texts to my best friend. What really bothered me the most was when it took me over a minute just to turn off the notifications for a group chat I was on. If there is any solution to this problem I am open to hear it because this lag issue is starting to get frustrating.
A Cure For Social Distancing
by Axel.Hunter on 2020/03/27 15:37
I haven’t had the chance to even see my friends for at least two weeks now. But, with Hangouts, we are able to do video calls (usually a normal thing that happens daily over this break) and catch up with each other. We can also enable the camera option if we want to see each other, and enable mute if we have to do something that might sound annoying to the people we are chatting to. The only problem I’ve had with it is that the audio sometimes glitches out and you can’t really distinguish what the other person is saying, and sometimes the website on computers crash and make everything glitched for at least ten minutes (probably not related to the app), but besides that, it’s a real life saver.
Crashes and Ringtones
by Tiny Poll on 2018/07/26 23:33
I love hangouts! I’m 13 years old and I use it all the time to contact my friends. It is also helpful with gathering homework during the school year with friends. You don’t need a phone number to use it, just an email account. It has a nice layout, and YOU get to decide your profile pic. I also have iMessage, but I personally like hangouts better. One problem: hangouts doesn’t allow you to have different ringtones for different people, which is why sometimes I use iMessage more. Another problem: IT KEEPS CRASHING! I would be grateful if you could fix this. I’m writing this review because hangouts just crashed. Please consider adding ringtone choices and fixing the crashes. -Alexandra
