It’s was great because my friend didn’t have a phone so I was like let’s do gmail but then they told me about hangouts and it was great
No problema

¡Contrariamente a las opiniones de algunas personas, no hay estafadores y todo está bien, personalmente me encanta esta aplicación, es genial para chatear y hacer videollamadas!
Great private communication tool.

by Alana McFail 🥴 on 2019/12/06 12:18
I’ve been using this app for about 4 years and I was so excited to see how well it does with messages and calls but sometimes it doesn’t send messages or videos even if I have wifi or data. It could be me but it can sometimes be problematic.
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.

None other chat work when you are in a place where there is no phone connection, but hangouts works pretty good. Because hangout is internet based.
This App Is Evil!!
by Flightcrew2 on 2019/12/05 15:02
Even if you sign out of Google’s Gmail (and all of your your other Google Accounts & Services), This App/ Service remains signed in and ACTIVE, tracking everything you do and everywhere you go and everything you type on your Browser & email. Go to your Google Dashboard & Google STILL shows all of your computers and devices as active and signed in, even if you have methodically signed out from them all!! BEWARE: 1984 is alive and well with this Google HangOuts App/Service!!!

Needs continued support from Google
by JD from down south on 2019/12/04 02:19
The heir to the legendary Gchat, Hangouts is one of the longest running non-core apps in the Google arsenal. They should keep it updated and return to the path of greatness which it once followed.

Doesn’t support split screen
by Lieblich on 2019/12/03 19:21
This app will only work at full screen. So you can’t just zip in and out of a convo, you have to switch apps every time you want to reply! Super lazy Google. Yet another app that you stopped caring about.

by App Critic. 2019 on 2019/12/01 20:00
I use this app a lot, and it’s decent. But when I try texting someone, a lot of the time it displays an error. What’s up with that??!!! That needs to fix. Also, you should be allowed to send more images and videos at once. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
It’s great!

I have some issues
by vr teser on 2019/12/01 16:16
So in this app yes I can talk to my friends that don’t have phone numbers and I can call them and whatever but my issue is that when on a call I can’t do some stuff that I either need to or want to. I personally find this very annoying and with the texting don’t get me started. Stuff is all over the place I can’t read the texts because of that. Don’t take this to hard I still enjoy the app but there are some problems
Helpful but doesn’t work all the time
by Ciara Bitler on 2019/12/01 13:39
When I’m video chatting my friends, my phone heats up and the battery life drains very quickly. It’s not just me because my friends have the same problem. And sometimes hangouts won’t load when I need it to, etc.
Love it
by bcgfhfufbvdu on 2019/12/01 03:57
I like thus app because if someone has a phone that is not a iPhone you can still chat with friends or family that don’t have a iPhone!!!!!!!!

I really like hangouts and I use it a lot to text my friends but the only thing is that I can’t figure out how to change my ringtone. But overall it’s a great app. Sometimes the FaceTime is little glitchy but it may just be my phone. It’s a really great app! Thanks hangouts people for making this app! 😁😁😁

Hangouts is the Best, BUT....
by cosmicviewer on 2019/11/29 17:33
Hangouts is the best social media communications app out there! You can text, make video calls, communicate with groups of people, send pictures, videos, and so much more! However, as I understand, Google is removing Hangouts as we know it, and replacing it with a corporate version. In my opinion, they need to let well-enough alone. Bottom line, if they make this change (which is to happen soon), I would not bother getting this app.

Super clunky interface, call spam filters don't work
by MysteryShopper12 on 2019/11/28 10:34
The interface to find phone contacts and call them is horrible. In some cases it doesn't find all linked numbers and I end up going to the contact in iPhone and copy/pasting into the dialer. Instead, it shows me 3x the cell numbers from the same contact, when in iOS they have 3 different numbers - home, work, cell. The UX to find a contact to dial is very poor as well. There many extra steps that could be avoided, and moving the action buttons around the screen is just poor design, from bottom to top corner to center to bottom center above main navigation. Also, not unique to hangouts, when you push the contact button presumably you're wanting to search for a contact, yes? Place the cursor in the search box automatically so I don't have to click it. Chances are I'm not wanting to scroll through my 1567 phone contacts, I'd rather filter them by searching. If I want to, I could start scrolling as well, which should then just work. Further, the spam call detection that Google Voice has does not appear to transfer over if you have hangouts set to ring for your GV calls. All the calls come through, yet in GV they are shown in the spam filter. Why would someone link them? Well because let's say you're traveling internationally and want to use your GV number, which is VOIP, so you should be able to, but it won't let you without linking your overseas number or paying high costs to call per minute. Or you are in an area with poor cell service but have data or other WiFi. Or you're on a data only plan. Etc. Of course the service is free, and generally works okay so it does deserve credit for that. However I'd be happy to use the G suite version of GV and pay a monthly fee, but I'm leery of switching now since I don't know how that will interact with these same situations, particularly data only access in places I travel. From a company who's focus is supposedly simplicity in UI/UX at least in search, this is just clunky. If anyone at google is reading this, I'd be happy to provide video and highlight suggestions and gripes in more detail.
Be careful
by pat12461 on 2019/11/28 09:54
It’s a great app for general friend and family conversation but just as all social media sites this to is also plagued by the webcam bots and the hack and scam community I would say I have at least 15 of them in my block user file which would be nice if you could delete them eventually from there as well I would of given the app a higher rating if google would just police there users better but I assume as always it is up to us to do there job for them other than that the app has its glitches at times but it is a very reliable tool
Love the app
by L. Underwood on 2019/11/28 09:25
I’m glad I downloaded this app. It lets me communicate with friends that I can’t talk to in iMessages. I would recommend it to others who don’t have it! Its awesome!

Why I love this
by Camille10367 on 2019/11/28 05:21
I will hang out because whenever I want to talk to my cousins or friends I can just call them and I can FaceTime them chat with them if they’re busy they can just text me like hey I can’t answer you I’ll text you when I’m done and that’s why I love hanging out with something I don’t like about Hangouts is that your story it’s for because you type so much and yeah. This is why I love hangouts 💜😁

Pretty good but one issue
by happy cabbages on 2019/11/25 12:51
A day ago, my friend got a puppy and she had me over. She was on this exact app so I downloaded it because it looked really cool. The next day we spent a few hours on Hangouts and I didn’t want to do anything else. It was all okay until dinner. We were still playing on it, and then all of a sudden the game crashed and the call ended. We tried it again but it kept glitching and crashing. The game is very fun overall, but it crashes once and a while. It’s free anyways, so I shouldn’t expect it to be perfect.
Great!!!
by a hoopla user on 2019/11/25 12:20
I love Google Hangouts! I use it to text all of my friends and family! Every time I see a friend with a google account, I ask them if they want to text with Hangouts. It is great and you can make HUGE groups in 1 2 3! I am not allowed to text with Apple. I’m not allowed to text in any other way. I don’t even have a phone! But since I have a serious Google Account, I can text whenever I want, without my parents permission. Get this app

Review of app...
by mua-dib on 2019/11/23 23:12
I noticed the words I typed being flown off the screen really fast; which is to indicate an interception of data through the app itself. If I had to evaluate the app, I would suggest better security protocols to ensure privacy during its use.

Unable To Add Account???
by Blacc Kat✨ on 2019/11/23 16:03
I’ve used hangouts for awhile now, and I have one main account that I use to talk to my online friends, but one day I couldn’t send any messages to a group chat so I signed out and tried to sign back in but it won’t let me, it says unable to add account which is pretty annoying especially since I’ve used it for almost a year without any problems until now.
Unable to send images

Very inappropriate messages received.
by Sean Hannity Fox News on 2019/11/22 20:06
This app is a threat to children. I needed to install this for one time use for a work video conference, but after forgetting to delete it and several months of it sitting on my iPad, I was shocked by the disturbing messages I’d received. I cant even list an example they were so sexually inappropriate. At least 50 unknown messages with similar content where received, and if anyone from Apple wants evidence, please reach out to me and I will be happy to provide screenshots of received messages. This platform is crawling with pedophiles, and this app should be removed from the App Store.
There’s a problem
by FrankieFranklyHart on 2019/11/22 19:54
I downloaded this app a year or so ago, but didn’t use it. In the meantime I had my phone number changed. Now I can’t get on because there’s no way to change my phone number on this app. Why?

At the beginning of most days I will have message from friend and when I tap on message I have to start app but it say “ sorry it’s taking longer then expected to load your account “ then it takes awhile for it to open. So far it’s taken up to 1 hr——once opened it’s ok. But because of that I only use it for 1 person.

You had one job, Hangouts...
by aldeka_star on 2019/11/21 00:48
Abruptly a couple weeks ago this app stopped being able to send messages on my phone. I could receive messages from others and send messages in the web client, but any reply on mobile would hang in “Sending” status and never send, every time I tried, both on WiFi and cell network. Other chat apps like Signal and Messages didn’t have any issues. Going to delete and reinstall Hangouts to see if that fixes it...but yeah. A chat app you can’t send messages in? Disappointing quality.

by Bowcoastie on 2019/11/20 12:49
I’ve been using Hangouts for the last two years and it’s been a really good experience overall. Initially they were network problems that caused issues with the app, but those have been worked out. Reliability is getting to be nearly as good as the cell phone itself. I use it as a second phone line so I don’t have to carry a personal phone and my work phone. For this purpose is worked out very well. Thank you Google.

Hangouts is great, I’ve been using it since 2016 and it’s performed smoothly so far, once in a while the white background gets very irritating especially in dark environments, the dark theme would be nice for hangouts other than that it’s a great app to talk to friends. But please to add the option to enable Dark Theme in hangouts.

by Blartey on 2019/11/17 02:45
Hangouts is not a good site at all, every single person I’ve talked to on there always ask for a gift card or others unnecessary things. First they meet you on one site and want to transfer you to hangouts to continue the conversation. Their all a bunch of liars and they beg you to believe them, and none of them can’t even spell, they have terrible grammar, nothing they say makes and sense.
Waste of your time.
by Goatroper 66 on 2019/11/16 22:48
I have been on hangouts for some time now. It seams that every day this app gets slower. I have friends falling asleep waiting for reply’s on hangouts. Sometimes it takes as much as 35 minutes. I have tried to contact this app . But no one cares to do anything to correct this failure . Looking into other apps with better use of time. Anything is better than this. It’s a great place to chat and take a nap. Good luck all!
A SCAMMER’S APP !!!
by Never use this app !! on 2019/11/16 16:23
I am, in no way rating this app. This app is the worst app I’ve ever used. The only way I found out about this app was through romance scammers. Romance Scammers would, “meet me”, on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, ect and start talking to me. Then, they would later lead me to this app to talk to me more in, “Private”, to get to know me, “better”, only to find out later that they don’t actually love me and use this app to get money and gift cards from me. I’m sure it happens to other people, but they never admit it. I demand that this app be blocked and removed from the App Store. How very disappointing is this, I don’t even use this app and it’s still disappointing. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS APP TO ANYONE!! NOT ONE SOUL!!!
It’s amazing overall!

This app is fenomenal when you want to have calls with many people at one time. Th only downside I had was when calls would crash out of the blue but even st that you can get back to them fairly quickly! I would recommend this for anyone with multiple friends that wanna have a group chat!
Google really doesn’t understand UX.
by JBHorner on 2019/11/16 04:23
It takes five taps to delete a conversation...this is because Google buries it, deep. In Google’s world, everything gets archived. Archiving is quite easy...swipe left or right on the message, and it’s done. Why? Because they want to continue to mine your data. So, the concept of having an ability to delete easily just doesn’t exist.
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!
Works great.
by ICanRateOk on 2019/03/24 04:16
My friends wanted to chat with me, so they recommended hangouts to do it. I was like Ok, let’s try it. It’s all like the regular texting app, but you can also call using the same app, which is pretty convenient. The regular app does not include calling, and you need two apps if you want to call. You can also switch from voicemail to FaceTime, instead of having to call again if you want to FaceTime. Group chat let’s you talk as a group in a voicemail or FaceTime, and all of the people can decide if they want either voice only or camera. If you don’t have the new update for group chat on your device, that’s ok! You don’t need to update to group chat on Hangouts. Overall, this app totally deserves five stars. As an addition, I like the little cyclops guy that you see if there is nothing there. Hey, it’s cute and makes the app pop out more. The logo is a dialog bubble with quotations (“) in it, which is a pretty clever idea because the app is about chat. If you are reading this and you don’t have Hangouts, get it right now. You better. And if you already do, then give yourself a pat on the back. I’m so glad I found this app, and I hope you decide to use the app too. Applause to the creator of this app. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 You deserve it.
Love it, but now I’m really sad
by cncowj is on 2019/10/20 21:15
I use hangouts all the time to talk to all of my friends. I love the app, and it is pretty much my life. Then today, October 20th 2019, I was refreshing hangouts and signing out of my account meaning to sign back in and it would be refreshed. I do this a lot, because then after I sign back in I can see my friends’ changed profile pictures, etc. I had also just installed the IOS 12.4.2 update on my device. A screen I had never seen before popped up that said, “Welcome! Hangouts will save all of your recorded conversation history so you can access it anywhere you need to.” Then at the bottom of the screen there was a big blue button that read, “OK, got it!” I pressed that button. At first it didn’t work and I assumed it was a tiny glitch and wasn’t a big deal. I waited. I tried again. I did it again. It still wasn’t working. I restarted my device, deleted and re-installed hangouts, cleared all my windows and checked my internet connection, which was full bars. I’m still trying to figure out why it won’t work. At the time, I cannot contact any of the people I would want to contact. Please help me! I love this app and need it to work!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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 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.
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.
Great app, worth checking out.
by SparkZ7926 on 2018/03/30 00:06
This app has become very useful recently. I have and use apple devices, but for some reason, a lot of my friends use androids. I obviously can’t text them in Apple Messages, but this substitutes that. You can text, call and more with this app. I am not sponsored lol. Another feature is that it actually doesn’t require a phone number. You can sign into the app with your Gmail account, and it will ask for your phone number, but if you don’t want to, you can skip it and it won’t bug you. One thing that would be great to add would be the ability to edit the names of the people you text. It won’t change anything on anyone elses device, but some of my friends gmails aren’t their real names. This is why it gets four stars.
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 👍👍😀😀😃😄😁😜😜😉😁😁
Freezes a lot/other problems
by Nauticaleon on 2019/05/15 23:30
This app is good but it freezes a lot and sometimes a “failed to send” error message would pop up while attempting to send pictures or videos and I would have to wait a whole day for that feature to work again! It’s also kinda difficult to connect a yahoo account to use google hangouts. It’s a long and tricky process. The stickers are kinda ugly too but that’s the least of its problems. Another problem is that, one time when I signed out and signed back in, a pop up screen that said “welcome to hangouts” came out and I tried to press the button to continue but it failed on me. I had to make a completely new email just to use hangouts. I never sign out so I can avoid this from happening again. These are simple bugs that can be fixed and this shouldn’t happen!! Come on google!!!
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!
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, 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.
G Hangouts
by Phoenix-Matt on 2019/01/08 08:03
Had to D/L this App to be part of a virtual video conference back in ‘09. Normally, I despise being told what to do/ use, not this time. Because I “discovered” Google’s Hangouts! And I’ve been using it ever since. To give the haters a lil justification, it’s not perfect. But overall, it’s gets the job(s) done that it used to take several Apps to accomplish. Currently there might be a single App solution available that’s on par/ better than this, I haven’t checked. Mostly because (IDK about you, but) I’m just not into giving “Cart Blanche” permissions to every small App developer that comes along. I recommend this App if you’re looking for another solution to SMS, MMS, phone calls and video calls via VOIP (strictly over the Internet). At very least, it’s safe to install and give it a go.
Great for a large group
by Camping Granny on 2018/09/15 13:28
We have a large family and live several hours from each other. To stay up with all our news we would text multiple times a day. There were frequent problems with the texts coming out of order, or not at all for some of our group. We thought perhaps this was because of all the different types of phones being used? Anyway we started using hangouts and haven’t had a problem since, at least not with carrying on our many conversations. We haven’t used the video feature however, so I can’t comment on that. Some in our family have had trouble using hangouts camera so that might need some work. Other than that we love the app!
Friendships Grow
by Writerigrl23 on 2019/11/07 01:10
I recommend this so much if you or a friend have just a computer and can’t text. You can honestly text on computer, phone, iPads, or whatever ya got. Me and my friends don’t have things other than computers half of the time when I have an iPad for school and that. It works amazingly. Although it could be a little better if they allow more emojis and that. My friends and I have gotten closer because before we would only see each other at the least once every two weeks. This made us text and ask how our day has been and learn about each other. I love it. Also I don’t do WiFi which is fine, just getting that point out.
Awesomeness for work!
by UTpharmer on 2018/05/24 16:46
We use Google Suite in my businesses, and hangouts really makes life a lot easier. There’s a missing feature that I find kind of annoying though. I’m always logged in to my 4 different gmail accounts, but the account selector tiles in settings often display in a frustrating way. In my opinion, it should show you the current account that you have selected first, and then show you any account that have unread messages as the next account. Why? I find that I’m constant having to select an account just to make the tiles shift so I can select the account that has unread messages. This is only a problem for people with 4 or more accounts.
I love it
by MommyK88 on 2019/05/25 14:38
OK most people think that Apple it’s much better than Google hangouts. That’s wrong because guess what you can actually facetime with more than five people at once. So you can have a huge FaceTime as a Group and it actually works and apple is horrible trying to FaceTime a whole group .when I tried FaceTime ing only two friends at the same time it wouldn’t let me talk to any of them and it didn’t even show their faces which I thought was just horrible. I say Google hangouts is much better than Apple because you can send on any Internet even if it’s a locked Internet or unsecured Internet you can still send but Apple you cannot. so I give it a big old fat five
Works Well
by S2DH on 2017/08/27 18:53
It's been great having this to connect to my google voice number especially when I don't have any cell reception. Thanks so much to Google for fixing most of the freezing problem! My only pet peeve now is that the typing window sometimes doesn't resize properly, and sometimes I can't receive messages from a single person until I restart my phone. All in all a great app tho. Update: Everything is running smooth, and I'm switching countries so regularly this is my only permanent number which is awesome! I only wish that companies would stop blocking this number (Uber, etc.) as I have no other permanent number. That's totally on those companies though.
Too good
by Ttttttttttttteee on 2019/04/28 18:26
Hangouts easily lets me talk to my friends and family. Hangouts even let me meet new people and one of the hem is now my best friend because we met on a group chat, before she was a girl I never talked to but now I can’t stop texting her or talking to her. This app lets you talk to people who don’t have a email or you just don’t want their email for just one project but you can call them, the app asks you to pay but the call is high quality. You can have amazing video calls with friends but to be honest hangouts calls can be a little shaky or your voice breaks a lot. I sooo recommend you to get this app and it free! Love it and I am not payed to right this.... just saying...
Ok
by Jimmybones! on 2018/01/12 15:31
Hangouts has some strong points and some odd ones. We all love Google but their unified messaging strategy is just odd. Duo and hangouts? Why not just combine. Duo works very well, hangouts audio and video has flaws. Why can’t I control my volume when I use my iPhone using Google products?? One other annoying trait of Hangouts is a friend can send me 10 pics but I can’t scroll through them in full screen mode. I have to open and close each one individually. Why?!? All in all a good product especially given the desktop app but some basic features, or lack of, have me going to other chat/voip tools except for friends who are only on hangouts. Until Google makes a single app that does all that you need, they will not win the market from WhatsApp/ Facebook messenger, etc....imho.
A free educational tool
by defdotcom on 2019/05/30 15:35
For a long time I used this app only for simple text till a mentor introduced me to use it for video calls particular when he wanted to explain complex tasks. The group calling option is super with every individual having a chance to switch between video or only voice call, depending on their network speed It can also send text regularly even for group charts too. What's interesting is the dynamic nature such that even new group users can follow discussions done when they had not been part of the group (this seems unique when compared to other group chart apps of this nature). Kudos to the hangout team for such a free app
Still need improvement
by Brasoul on 2019/10/06 01:00
Great but not as versatile as messenger or Whatsaap. Google has not resolved the bug that requires one to delete the app and reinstall from the App Store each time apple is turned on from a hard reboot. This is very discouraging. Another issue is the failure to preserve and remember message history and failure to expand a group after creating one. To add to a group that is already created one has to start a new group. Overall it is still my prime communication tool because I’m 100% a google enthusiast. Hopefully they can make this much better than Messenger with feature of keeping call and message history in one area and the ability to expand groups, calls, etc.
Cut off my contacts...
by KaitlynVZ017 on 2018/01/06 19:51
I have an iPhone SE, and ever since I updated to the latest version of Hangouts (the one that optimized it for the iPhone X), my contacts are cut off, like when I’m in a chat, the person who I’m texting, their name is cut off, because the record button, call button, and the 3 dots button are spread apart. Now I understand that my phone is quite small compared to the bigger iPhones and the iPhone X, but that does NOT mean whatsoever that my content should be all screwed up JUST because iPhones are getting larger. The SE is still available in retail, therefore it’s not right that my content is messed up because the buttons were spread out. Google, you need to keep in mind that not EVERYONE can afford the $1000 iPhone X, or just that not everyone likes bigger iPhones. You need to fix this issue, because it’s starting to get really aggravating and there’s no reason WHATSOEVER that I should have to deal with that. Fix this problem, because it’s quite upsetting that you’re just ignoring the SE, as if EVERYONE got the X, which aka isn’t even CLOSE to true. My content must be fixed as soon as possible. And then I’ll rate 5 stars, but for now, I’m only giving 3 stars.
Great application recommend
by Joker609pr on 2018/04/04 05:00
I’m loving it is easy to use easy to understand and it works good as a secondary phone number when you have a Google voice number attached to it as long as you download the Google Voice app and get your phone number if you have a Gmail and attach it to hangouts is a great way to have a secondary number and you don’t get give out your number to people you don’t really worry about giving out your personal number you give them your Google Voice number I start to hang out and his great way to communicate you can send pictures and text and call and receive calls and text messages and pictures👌🏽☝🏽💪🏽
Quite behind
by Akehru on 2017/12/09 02:25
You can easily find better apps than this like Line. Hangout has become one of many google products - mediocre at best. They feel like Microsoft nowadays; remember how Internet Explorer was so unloved by MS, until Firefox and Chrome became popular? Specifically, Hangout is very slow in sending videos. Sending pictures and videos from google photo has 50:50 chance it will fail at first try. Sending a video doesn’t show its transfer progress (% sent), leaving you wondering if you should just give up or wait for another minute, all while your phone is tied up to it. And you can’t just browse pictures received. You have to close it to see the next one. All these features have been available at Line for long. So with all the financial power and supposedly bright folks at google, what is going on?
This is a very good app!
by I-minath on 2019/10/02 12:39
My best friend and I are just teens. We don’t have phones yet. So, my friend recommended this to me and this worked out greatly! Now I text and be video calls with all of my friends including my cousin too all the time! This amazing and I really recommend this to all the teens and tweens out there who doesn’t have phones yet or who has friends with no phones yet. I hope everyone else also has a great time with this app. But it would also be really good if we can add stickers we want from other apps to this app. I have a sticker collection: BT21 and I really want to use them in my daily texts with all of my amazing friends! 💕
Best app to text people, EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by Minide82 on 2018/01/28 22:26
My mom, Grandma, Aunt, sister, Dad, and I love to chat on it! They have awesome emotes, a picture tab, and lots of writing options to choose from! One minor element though, security. My sister was texting my dad one day and she found a person called “Shakira” on our page, and we didn’t download her!!!! #SUPERcreepy!!!!!!! Anyway, other than security, the app is awesome! Love all the features. The phone calls and FaceTime are good quality most of the time.. can be glitchy... but awesome app! Good Job to whoever created the idea. I still give you my five-star rating. P.S. Please, please, PLEASE work on security! That random person is still giving me the creeps!
overall a very handy app
by rfrenan on 2019/04/11 18:06
I really use it for simple caller tasks, but it comes in very useful when i need to make free calls on a U.S. number from abroad. It also came in especially handy when I didn’t have a local number in the U.S. and would make so many of my calls through this app. those calls are usually of a pretty good quality, just that when you’re on a loudspeaker the other party can have a hard time hearing you. The call quality in general isn’t the best, but it’s not bad either, just some intermissions at times, but those can also be from a bad internet connection, don’t want to guilt the app. overall, very useful and does the basic job at least for me.
I love the app but...
by M💋YA on 2019/02/27 22:01
I love Hangouts i just wish it was more of a secure encryption and features like its counter part Allo that Google is not longer going to update. Maybe having end-to-end encryption like Signal, Wire Messenger, Telegram or even an iMessage similarity. Also, to be able to send larger files and easier access such as sliding features for deleting or blocking numbers; instead of going through multiple clicks here and there. This app could be a lot better if just had a little more time for improvements with sleeker design, more updated features and faster to maneuver. I see the potential for growth just needs a little more tweaking.
I love this app! But...
by Aves123bekind on 2018/06/25 14:45
I love Google Hangouts but only a few of my friends use it, so unless they have it downloaded too, there is no way to talk to them. Also, some of them don’t even have gmail accounts so it makes it even harder for them. Since only a few friends have this app, I don’t use it very often. Besides that, everything is perfectly fine with the app itself and I would highly recommend getting this app if you have a google account and you know lots of other people with google accounts too. This app is exactly the same as texting and FaceTiming. It’s just all in one app so it makes things easier.😊
Cool app and the cats are cute!!!! Dont give up!
by Princess_flowergirl1 on 2018/05/22 17:01

Thanks for seeing what did i say please put the updates!!!!!
Decent App
by King Verse on 2017/11/09 00:16
It’s a decent app but it’s still glitchy at times especially with the video chat. Also, my notifications don’t come through on my devices. I have hangouts on multiple devices but the notifications only come through on my last used device. So if we can get a fix for that I’m good. My final gripe is the sending of videos. At one point I was able to send videos but I no longer can. Not sure if it was mentioned in one of the updates as to why it stopped but that is an inconvenience for me. Especially seeing as how I use hangouts as an alternate number as well. I hope this gives some insight as to possible changes and additions/readditions but just wanted to express my thoughts. Thanks for reading and stop asking me if I wanna write a review.

by poopyMcLongbottom on 2019/04/04 04:43
Works good except when I logout and then log back in later all the blocked contacts appear and I have to click on the name as if I am going to message them to have the name removed from showing as an a contact. I wish there was a way to prevent any blocked contacts from appearing when I log back in, they should just be listed under blocked contacts and not appear every time I log back in. There also should be a way to tell when someone is online. If someone shuts off their activity status then you don’t know if they are online or not? Or if that person has seen your message? How can you tell if a person has deactivated their hangouts account? There should be a way to tell if someone has deactivated their account?

The Best Period❗️
by Designer, not Ralph Lauren! on 2017/11/13 23:55
Google Hangouts is the Best! I've read some of the other reviews that say Hangouts needs some fixes or fine tuning. The truth is it's FREE❗️I'm able to make and receive calls, texts, and pictures on this wonderful app. I've had Cingular, Singular, AT&T, and Verizon services. When they mess up your service you still pay 💰. Also, customer service treats you like They are paying you and not the other way around. Those companies have Never asked me to rate them. They Suck❗️So when I hear people whining about the little things that FREE Hangouts could have. I say shut up❗️It really is a wonderful tool. Thank you Hangouts❗️😄

I’ve been using this app for about 4 years and I was so excited to see how well it does with messages and calls but sometimes it doesn’t send messages or videos even if I have wifi or data. It could be me but it can sometimes be problematic.
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.

None other chat work when you are in a place where there is no phone connection, but hangouts works pretty good. Because hangout is internet based.
This App Is Evil!!
by Flightcrew2 on 2019/12/05 15:02
Even if you sign out of Google’s Gmail (and all of your your other Google Accounts & Services), This App/ Service remains signed in and ACTIVE, tracking everything you do and everywhere you go and everything you type on your Browser & email. Go to your Google Dashboard & Google STILL shows all of your computers and devices as active and signed in, even if you have methodically signed out from them all!! BEWARE: 1984 is alive and well with this Google HangOuts App/Service!!!

Needs continued support from Google
by JD from down south on 2019/12/04 02:19
The heir to the legendary Gchat, Hangouts is one of the longest running non-core apps in the Google arsenal. They should keep it updated and return to the path of greatness which it once followed.

Doesn’t support split screen
by Lieblich on 2019/12/03 19:21
This app will only work at full screen. So you can’t just zip in and out of a convo, you have to switch apps every time you want to reply! Super lazy Google. Yet another app that you stopped caring about.

I use this app a lot, and it’s decent. But when I try texting someone, a lot of the time it displays an error. What’s up with that??!!! That needs to fix. Also, you should be allowed to send more images and videos at once. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
It’s great!

I have some issues
by vr teser on 2019/12/01 16:16
So in this app yes I can talk to my friends that don’t have phone numbers and I can call them and whatever but my issue is that when on a call I can’t do some stuff that I either need to or want to. I personally find this very annoying and with the texting don’t get me started. Stuff is all over the place I can’t read the texts because of that. Don’t take this to hard I still enjoy the app but there are some problems
Helpful but doesn’t work all the time
by Ciara Bitler on 2019/12/01 13:39
When I’m video chatting my friends, my phone heats up and the battery life drains very quickly. It’s not just me because my friends have the same problem. And sometimes hangouts won’t load when I need it to, etc.
Love it
by bcgfhfufbvdu on 2019/12/01 03:57
I like thus app because if someone has a phone that is not a iPhone you can still chat with friends or family that don’t have a iPhone!!!!!!!!

Hangouts is the Best, BUT....
by cosmicviewer on 2019/11/29 17:33
Hangouts is the best social media communications app out there! You can text, make video calls, communicate with groups of people, send pictures, videos, and so much more! However, as I understand, Google is removing Hangouts as we know it, and replacing it with a corporate version. In my opinion, they need to let well-enough alone. Bottom line, if they make this change (which is to happen soon), I would not bother getting this app.

Super clunky interface, call spam filters don't work
by MysteryShopper12 on 2019/11/28 10:34
The interface to find phone contacts and call them is horrible. In some cases it doesn't find all linked numbers and I end up going to the contact in iPhone and copy/pasting into the dialer. Instead, it shows me 3x the cell numbers from the same contact, when in iOS they have 3 different numbers - home, work, cell. The UX to find a contact to dial is very poor as well. There many extra steps that could be avoided, and moving the action buttons around the screen is just poor design, from bottom to top corner to center to bottom center above main navigation. Also, not unique to hangouts, when you push the contact button presumably you're wanting to search for a contact, yes? Place the cursor in the search box automatically so I don't have to click it. Chances are I'm not wanting to scroll through my 1567 phone contacts, I'd rather filter them by searching. If I want to, I could start scrolling as well, which should then just work. Further, the spam call detection that Google Voice has does not appear to transfer over if you have hangouts set to ring for your GV calls. All the calls come through, yet in GV they are shown in the spam filter. Why would someone link them? Well because let's say you're traveling internationally and want to use your GV number, which is VOIP, so you should be able to, but it won't let you without linking your overseas number or paying high costs to call per minute. Or you are in an area with poor cell service but have data or other WiFi. Or you're on a data only plan. Etc. Of course the service is free, and generally works okay so it does deserve credit for that. However I'd be happy to use the G suite version of GV and pay a monthly fee, but I'm leery of switching now since I don't know how that will interact with these same situations, particularly data only access in places I travel. From a company who's focus is supposedly simplicity in UI/UX at least in search, this is just clunky. If anyone at google is reading this, I'd be happy to provide video and highlight suggestions and gripes in more detail.
Be careful
by pat12461 on 2019/11/28 09:54
It’s a great app for general friend and family conversation but just as all social media sites this to is also plagued by the webcam bots and the hack and scam community I would say I have at least 15 of them in my block user file which would be nice if you could delete them eventually from there as well I would of given the app a higher rating if google would just police there users better but I assume as always it is up to us to do there job for them other than that the app has its glitches at times but it is a very reliable tool
Love the app
by L. Underwood on 2019/11/28 09:25

by Camille10367 on 2019/11/28 05:21
I will hang out because whenever I want to talk to my cousins or friends I can just call them and I can FaceTime them chat with them if they’re busy they can just text me like hey I can’t answer you I’ll text you when I’m done and that’s why I love hanging out with something I don’t like about Hangouts is that your story it’s for because you type so much and yeah. This is why I love hangouts 💜😁

by Mahhhlon on 2019/11/25 21:54
I have a person still appearing in my contacts that I cannot delete. No option to do so, even though they are scrubbed from my gmail account. Unacceptable.

From my g-chat on my computer to hangouts on my iPad, we use this for work and its perfect for communicating faster than email and collaboarating on projects
Pretty good but one issue
by happy cabbages on 2019/11/25 12:51
A day ago, my friend got a puppy and she had me over. She was on this exact app so I downloaded it because it looked really cool. The next day we spent a few hours on Hangouts and I didn’t want to do anything else. It was all okay until dinner. We were still playing on it, and then all of a sudden the game crashed and the call ended. We tried it again but it kept glitching and crashing. The game is very fun overall, but it crashes once and a while. It’s free anyways, so I shouldn’t expect it to be perfect.
Great!!!
by a hoopla user on 2019/11/25 12:20
I love Google Hangouts! I use it to text all of my friends and family! Every time I see a friend with a google account, I ask them if they want to text with Hangouts. It is great and you can make HUGE groups in 1 2 3! I am not allowed to text with Apple. I’m not allowed to text in any other way. I don’t even have a phone! But since I have a serious Google Account, I can text whenever I want, without my parents permission. Get this app

Review of app...
by mua-dib on 2019/11/23 23:12
I noticed the words I typed being flown off the screen really fast; which is to indicate an interception of data through the app itself. If I had to evaluate the app, I would suggest better security protocols to ensure privacy during its use.

Unable To Add Account???
by Blacc Kat✨ on 2019/11/23 16:03
I’ve used hangouts for awhile now, and I have one main account that I use to talk to my online friends, but one day I couldn’t send any messages to a group chat so I signed out and tried to sign back in but it won’t let me, it says unable to add account which is pretty annoying especially since I’ve used it for almost a year without any problems until now.
Unable to send images
by EnitanEmg on 2019/11/23 15:04
Unable to send images and videos for some days now... I uninstalled and downloaded the latest version but still showing failed to send.. really frustrating for the past couple of days
Can’t send or receive invites
by gkmky on 2019/11/22 23:07
This app is picky when it wants to work sometimes you can get invites and chat with people and other times it doesn’t do it at all very annoying

Good
Very inappropriate messages received.
by Sean Hannity Fox News on 2019/11/22 20:06
This app is a threat to children. I needed to install this for one time use for a work video conference, but after forgetting to delete it and several months of it sitting on my iPad, I was shocked by the disturbing messages I’d received. I cant even list an example they were so sexually inappropriate. At least 50 unknown messages with similar content where received, and if anyone from Apple wants evidence, please reach out to me and I will be happy to provide screenshots of received messages. This platform is crawling with pedophiles, and this app should be removed from the App Store.
There’s a problem
by FrankieFranklyHart on 2019/11/22 19:54
I downloaded this app a year or so ago, but didn’t use it. In the meantime I had my phone number changed. Now I can’t get on because there’s no way to change my phone number on this app. Why?
Good app

by c. f. d. on 2019/11/22 12:48
At the beginning of most days I will have message from friend and when I tap on message I have to start app but it say “ sorry it’s taking longer then expected to load your account “ then it takes awhile for it to open. So far it’s taken up to 1 hr——once opened it’s ok. But because of that I only use it for 1 person.

It’s not a good chat app

You had one job, Hangouts...
by aldeka_star on 2019/11/21 00:48
Abruptly a couple weeks ago this app stopped being able to send messages on my phone. I could receive messages from others and send messages in the web client, but any reply on mobile would hang in “Sending” status and never send, every time I tried, both on WiFi and cell network. Other chat apps like Signal and Messages didn’t have any issues. Going to delete and reinstall Hangouts to see if that fixes it...but yeah. A chat app you can’t send messages in? Disappointing quality.

Much better than caring a second phone
by Bowcoastie on 2019/11/20 12:49
I’ve been using Hangouts for the last two years and it’s been a really good experience overall. Initially they were network problems that caused issues with the app, but those have been worked out. Reliability is getting to be nearly as good as the cell phone itself. I use it as a second phone line so I don’t have to carry a personal phone and my work phone. For this purpose is worked out very well. Thank you Google.

Dark Theme?
by C_A_64 on 2019/11/20 03:46
Hangouts is great, I’ve been using it since 2016 and it’s performed smoothly so far, once in a while the white background gets very irritating especially in dark environments, the dark theme would be nice for hangouts other than that it’s a great app to talk to friends. But please to add the option to enable Dark Theme in hangouts.

by Blartey on 2019/11/17 02:45
Hangouts is not a good site at all, every single person I’ve talked to on there always ask for a gift card or others unnecessary things. First they meet you on one site and want to transfer you to hangouts to continue the conversation. Their all a bunch of liars and they beg you to believe them, and none of them can’t even spell, they have terrible grammar, nothing they say makes and sense.
Waste of your time.
by Goatroper 66 on 2019/11/16 22:48
I have been on hangouts for some time now. It seams that every day this app gets slower. I have friends falling asleep waiting for reply’s on hangouts. Sometimes it takes as much as 35 minutes. I have tried to contact this app . But no one cares to do anything to correct this failure . Looking into other apps with better use of time. Anything is better than this. It’s a great place to chat and take a nap. Good luck all!
A SCAMMER’S APP !!!
by Never use this app !! on 2019/11/16 16:23
I am, in no way rating this app. This app is the worst app I’ve ever used. The only way I found out about this app was through romance scammers. Romance Scammers would, “meet me”, on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, ect and start talking to me. Then, they would later lead me to this app to talk to me more in, “Private”, to get to know me, “better”, only to find out later that they don’t actually love me and use this app to get money and gift cards from me. I’m sure it happens to other people, but they never admit it. I demand that this app be blocked and removed from the App Store. How very disappointing is this, I don’t even use this app and it’s still disappointing. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS APP TO ANYONE!! NOT ONE SOUL!!!
It’s amazing overall!
by Kmle on 2019/11/16 16:10
This app is fenomenal when you want to have calls with many people at one time. Th only downside I had was when calls would crash out of the blue but even st that you can get back to them fairly quickly! I would recommend this for anyone with multiple friends that wanna have a group chat!
Google really doesn’t understand UX.
by JBHorner on 2019/11/16 04:23
It takes five taps to delete a conversation...this is because Google buries it, deep. In Google’s world, everything gets archived. Archiving is quite easy...swipe left or right on the message, and it’s done. Why? Because they want to continue to mine your data. So, the concept of having an ability to delete easily just doesn’t exist.
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!
Works great.
by ICanRateOk on 2019/03/24 04:16
My friends wanted to chat with me, so they recommended hangouts to do it. I was like Ok, let’s try it. It’s all like the regular texting app, but you can also call using the same app, which is pretty convenient. The regular app does not include calling, and you need two apps if you want to call. You can also switch from voicemail to FaceTime, instead of having to call again if you want to FaceTime. Group chat let’s you talk as a group in a voicemail or FaceTime, and all of the people can decide if they want either voice only or camera. If you don’t have the new update for group chat on your device, that’s ok! You don’t need to update to group chat on Hangouts. Overall, this app totally deserves five stars. As an addition, I like the little cyclops guy that you see if there is nothing there. Hey, it’s cute and makes the app pop out more. The logo is a dialog bubble with quotations (“) in it, which is a pretty clever idea because the app is about chat. If you are reading this and you don’t have Hangouts, get it right now. You better. And if you already do, then give yourself a pat on the back. I’m so glad I found this app, and I hope you decide to use the app too. Applause to the creator of this app. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 You deserve it.
Love it, but now I’m really sad
by cncowj is on 2019/10/20 21:15
I use hangouts all the time to talk to all of my friends. I love the app, and it is pretty much my life. Then today, October 20th 2019, I was refreshing hangouts and signing out of my account meaning to sign back in and it would be refreshed. I do this a lot, because then after I sign back in I can see my friends’ changed profile pictures, etc. I had also just installed the IOS 12.4.2 update on my device. A screen I had never seen before popped up that said, “Welcome! Hangouts will save all of your recorded conversation history so you can access it anywhere you need to.” Then at the bottom of the screen there was a big blue button that read, “OK, got it!” I pressed that button. At first it didn’t work and I assumed it was a tiny glitch and wasn’t a big deal. I waited. I tried again. I did it again. It still wasn’t working. I restarted my device, deleted and re-installed hangouts, cleared all my windows and checked my internet connection, which was full bars. I’m still trying to figure out why it won’t work. At the time, I cannot contact any of the people I would want to contact. Please help me! I love this app and need it to work!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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 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.
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.
Great app, worth checking out.
by SparkZ7926 on 2018/03/30 00:06
This app has become very useful recently. I have and use apple devices, but for some reason, a lot of my friends use androids. I obviously can’t text them in Apple Messages, but this substitutes that. You can text, call and more with this app. I am not sponsored lol. Another feature is that it actually doesn’t require a phone number. You can sign into the app with your Gmail account, and it will ask for your phone number, but if you don’t want to, you can skip it and it won’t bug you. One thing that would be great to add would be the ability to edit the names of the people you text. It won’t change anything on anyone elses device, but some of my friends gmails aren’t their real names. This is why it gets four stars.
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 👍👍😀😀😃😄😁😜😜😉😁😁
Freezes a lot/other problems
by Nauticaleon on 2019/05/15 23:30
This app is good but it freezes a lot and sometimes a “failed to send” error message would pop up while attempting to send pictures or videos and I would have to wait a whole day for that feature to work again! It’s also kinda difficult to connect a yahoo account to use google hangouts. It’s a long and tricky process. The stickers are kinda ugly too but that’s the least of its problems. Another problem is that, one time when I signed out and signed back in, a pop up screen that said “welcome to hangouts” came out and I tried to press the button to continue but it failed on me. I had to make a completely new email just to use hangouts. I never sign out so I can avoid this from happening again. These are simple bugs that can be fixed and this shouldn’t happen!! Come on google!!!
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!
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, 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.
G Hangouts
by Phoenix-Matt on 2019/01/08 08:03
Had to D/L this App to be part of a virtual video conference back in ‘09. Normally, I despise being told what to do/ use, not this time. Because I “discovered” Google’s Hangouts! And I’ve been using it ever since. To give the haters a lil justification, it’s not perfect. But overall, it’s gets the job(s) done that it used to take several Apps to accomplish. Currently there might be a single App solution available that’s on par/ better than this, I haven’t checked. Mostly because (IDK about you, but) I’m just not into giving “Cart Blanche” permissions to every small App developer that comes along. I recommend this App if you’re looking for another solution to SMS, MMS, phone calls and video calls via VOIP (strictly over the Internet). At very least, it’s safe to install and give it a go.
Great for a large group
by Camping Granny on 2018/09/15 13:28
We have a large family and live several hours from each other. To stay up with all our news we would text multiple times a day. There were frequent problems with the texts coming out of order, or not at all for some of our group. We thought perhaps this was because of all the different types of phones being used? Anyway we started using hangouts and haven’t had a problem since, at least not with carrying on our many conversations. We haven’t used the video feature however, so I can’t comment on that. Some in our family have had trouble using hangouts camera so that might need some work. Other than that we love the app!
Friendships Grow
by Writerigrl23 on 2019/11/07 01:10
I recommend this so much if you or a friend have just a computer and can’t text. You can honestly text on computer, phone, iPads, or whatever ya got. Me and my friends don’t have things other than computers half of the time when I have an iPad for school and that. It works amazingly. Although it could be a little better if they allow more emojis and that. My friends and I have gotten closer because before we would only see each other at the least once every two weeks. This made us text and ask how our day has been and learn about each other. I love it. Also I don’t do WiFi which is fine, just getting that point out.
Awesomeness for work!
by UTpharmer on 2018/05/24 16:46
We use Google Suite in my businesses, and hangouts really makes life a lot easier. There’s a missing feature that I find kind of annoying though. I’m always logged in to my 4 different gmail accounts, but the account selector tiles in settings often display in a frustrating way. In my opinion, it should show you the current account that you have selected first, and then show you any account that have unread messages as the next account. Why? I find that I’m constant having to select an account just to make the tiles shift so I can select the account that has unread messages. This is only a problem for people with 4 or more accounts.
I love it
by MommyK88 on 2019/05/25 14:38
OK most people think that Apple it’s much better than Google hangouts. That’s wrong because guess what you can actually facetime with more than five people at once. So you can have a huge FaceTime as a Group and it actually works and apple is horrible trying to FaceTime a whole group .when I tried FaceTime ing only two friends at the same time it wouldn’t let me talk to any of them and it didn’t even show their faces which I thought was just horrible. I say Google hangouts is much better than Apple because you can send on any Internet even if it’s a locked Internet or unsecured Internet you can still send but Apple you cannot. so I give it a big old fat five
Works Well
by S2DH on 2017/08/27 18:53
It's been great having this to connect to my google voice number especially when I don't have any cell reception. Thanks so much to Google for fixing most of the freezing problem! My only pet peeve now is that the typing window sometimes doesn't resize properly, and sometimes I can't receive messages from a single person until I restart my phone. All in all a great app tho. Update: Everything is running smooth, and I'm switching countries so regularly this is my only permanent number which is awesome! I only wish that companies would stop blocking this number (Uber, etc.) as I have no other permanent number. That's totally on those companies though.
Too good
by Ttttttttttttteee on 2019/04/28 18:26
Hangouts easily lets me talk to my friends and family. Hangouts even let me meet new people and one of the hem is now my best friend because we met on a group chat, before she was a girl I never talked to but now I can’t stop texting her or talking to her. This app lets you talk to people who don’t have a email or you just don’t want their email for just one project but you can call them, the app asks you to pay but the call is high quality. You can have amazing video calls with friends but to be honest hangouts calls can be a little shaky or your voice breaks a lot. I sooo recommend you to get this app and it free! Love it and I am not payed to right this.... just saying...
Ok
by Jimmybones! on 2018/01/12 15:31
Hangouts has some strong points and some odd ones. We all love Google but their unified messaging strategy is just odd. Duo and hangouts? Why not just combine. Duo works very well, hangouts audio and video has flaws. Why can’t I control my volume when I use my iPhone using Google products?? One other annoying trait of Hangouts is a friend can send me 10 pics but I can’t scroll through them in full screen mode. I have to open and close each one individually. Why?!? All in all a good product especially given the desktop app but some basic features, or lack of, have me going to other chat/voip tools except for friends who are only on hangouts. Until Google makes a single app that does all that you need, they will not win the market from WhatsApp/ Facebook messenger, etc....imho.
A free educational tool
by defdotcom on 2019/05/30 15:35
For a long time I used this app only for simple text till a mentor introduced me to use it for video calls particular when he wanted to explain complex tasks. The group calling option is super with every individual having a chance to switch between video or only voice call, depending on their network speed It can also send text regularly even for group charts too. What's interesting is the dynamic nature such that even new group users can follow discussions done when they had not been part of the group (this seems unique when compared to other group chart apps of this nature). Kudos to the hangout team for such a free app
Still need improvement
by Brasoul on 2019/10/06 01:00
Great but not as versatile as messenger or Whatsaap. Google has not resolved the bug that requires one to delete the app and reinstall from the App Store each time apple is turned on from a hard reboot. This is very discouraging. Another issue is the failure to preserve and remember message history and failure to expand a group after creating one. To add to a group that is already created one has to start a new group. Overall it is still my prime communication tool because I’m 100% a google enthusiast. Hopefully they can make this much better than Messenger with feature of keeping call and message history in one area and the ability to expand groups, calls, etc.
Cut off my contacts...
by KaitlynVZ017 on 2018/01/06 19:51
I have an iPhone SE, and ever since I updated to the latest version of Hangouts (the one that optimized it for the iPhone X), my contacts are cut off, like when I’m in a chat, the person who I’m texting, their name is cut off, because the record button, call button, and the 3 dots button are spread apart. Now I understand that my phone is quite small compared to the bigger iPhones and the iPhone X, but that does NOT mean whatsoever that my content should be all screwed up JUST because iPhones are getting larger. The SE is still available in retail, therefore it’s not right that my content is messed up because the buttons were spread out. Google, you need to keep in mind that not EVERYONE can afford the $1000 iPhone X, or just that not everyone likes bigger iPhones. You need to fix this issue, because it’s starting to get really aggravating and there’s no reason WHATSOEVER that I should have to deal with that. Fix this problem, because it’s quite upsetting that you’re just ignoring the SE, as if EVERYONE got the X, which aka isn’t even CLOSE to true. My content must be fixed as soon as possible. And then I’ll rate 5 stars, but for now, I’m only giving 3 stars.
Great application recommend
by Joker609pr on 2018/04/04 05:00
I’m loving it is easy to use easy to understand and it works good as a secondary phone number when you have a Google voice number attached to it as long as you download the Google Voice app and get your phone number if you have a Gmail and attach it to hangouts is a great way to have a secondary number and you don’t get give out your number to people you don’t really worry about giving out your personal number you give them your Google Voice number I start to hang out and his great way to communicate you can send pictures and text and call and receive calls and text messages and pictures👌🏽☝🏽💪🏽
Quite behind
by Akehru on 2017/12/09 02:25
You can easily find better apps than this like Line. Hangout has become one of many google products - mediocre at best. They feel like Microsoft nowadays; remember how Internet Explorer was so unloved by MS, until Firefox and Chrome became popular? Specifically, Hangout is very slow in sending videos. Sending pictures and videos from google photo has 50:50 chance it will fail at first try. Sending a video doesn’t show its transfer progress (% sent), leaving you wondering if you should just give up or wait for another minute, all while your phone is tied up to it. And you can’t just browse pictures received. You have to close it to see the next one. All these features have been available at Line for long. So with all the financial power and supposedly bright folks at google, what is going on?
This is a very good app!
by I-minath on 2019/10/02 12:39
My best friend and I are just teens. We don’t have phones yet. So, my friend recommended this to me and this worked out greatly! Now I text and be video calls with all of my friends including my cousin too all the time! This amazing and I really recommend this to all the teens and tweens out there who doesn’t have phones yet or who has friends with no phones yet. I hope everyone else also has a great time with this app. But it would also be really good if we can add stickers we want from other apps to this app. I have a sticker collection: BT21 and I really want to use them in my daily texts with all of my amazing friends! 💕
Best app to text people, EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by Minide82 on 2018/01/28 22:26
My mom, Grandma, Aunt, sister, Dad, and I love to chat on it! They have awesome emotes, a picture tab, and lots of writing options to choose from! One minor element though, security. My sister was texting my dad one day and she found a person called “Shakira” on our page, and we didn’t download her!!!! #SUPERcreepy!!!!!!! Anyway, other than security, the app is awesome! Love all the features. The phone calls and FaceTime are good quality most of the time.. can be glitchy... but awesome app! Good Job to whoever created the idea. I still give you my five-star rating. P.S. Please, please, PLEASE work on security! That random person is still giving me the creeps!
overall a very handy app
by rfrenan on 2019/04/11 18:06
I really use it for simple caller tasks, but it comes in very useful when i need to make free calls on a U.S. number from abroad. It also came in especially handy when I didn’t have a local number in the U.S. and would make so many of my calls through this app. those calls are usually of a pretty good quality, just that when you’re on a loudspeaker the other party can have a hard time hearing you. The call quality in general isn’t the best, but it’s not bad either, just some intermissions at times, but those can also be from a bad internet connection, don’t want to guilt the app. overall, very useful and does the basic job at least for me.
I love the app but...
by M💋YA on 2019/02/27 22:01
I love Hangouts i just wish it was more of a secure encryption and features like its counter part Allo that Google is not longer going to update. Maybe having end-to-end encryption like Signal, Wire Messenger, Telegram or even an iMessage similarity. Also, to be able to send larger files and easier access such as sliding features for deleting or blocking numbers; instead of going through multiple clicks here and there. This app could be a lot better if just had a little more time for improvements with sleeker design, more updated features and faster to maneuver. I see the potential for growth just needs a little more tweaking.
I love this app! But...
by Aves123bekind on 2018/06/25 14:45
I love Google Hangouts but only a few of my friends use it, so unless they have it downloaded too, there is no way to talk to them. Also, some of them don’t even have gmail accounts so it makes it even harder for them. Since only a few friends have this app, I don’t use it very often. Besides that, everything is perfectly fine with the app itself and I would highly recommend getting this app if you have a google account and you know lots of other people with google accounts too. This app is exactly the same as texting and FaceTiming. It’s just all in one app so it makes things easier.😊
Cool app and the cats are cute!!!! Dont give up!
by Princess_flowergirl1 on 2018/05/22 17:01

Thanks for seeing what did i say please put the updates!!!!!
Decent App
by King Verse on 2017/11/09 00:16
It’s a decent app but it’s still glitchy at times especially with the video chat. Also, my notifications don’t come through on my devices. I have hangouts on multiple devices but the notifications only come through on my last used device. So if we can get a fix for that I’m good. My final gripe is the sending of videos. At one point I was able to send videos but I no longer can. Not sure if it was mentioned in one of the updates as to why it stopped but that is an inconvenience for me. Especially seeing as how I use hangouts as an alternate number as well. I hope this gives some insight as to possible changes and additions/readditions but just wanted to express my thoughts. Thanks for reading and stop asking me if I wanna write a review.
Review
by poopyMcLongbottom on 2019/04/04 04:43
Works good except when I logout and then log back in later all the blocked contacts appear and I have to click on the name as if I am going to message them to have the name removed from showing as an a contact. I wish there was a way to prevent any blocked contacts from appearing when I log back in, they should just be listed under blocked contacts and not appear every time I log back in. There also should be a way to tell when someone is online. If someone shuts off their activity status then you don’t know if they are online or not? Or if that person has seen your message? How can you tell if a person has deactivated their hangouts account? There should be a way to tell if someone has deactivated their account?
Scammers

The Best Period❗️
by Designer, not Ralph Lauren! on 2017/11/13 23:55
Google Hangouts is the Best! I've read some of the other reviews that say Hangouts needs some fixes or fine tuning. The truth is it's FREE❗️I'm able to make and receive calls, texts, and pictures on this wonderful app. I've had Cingular, Singular, AT&T, and Verizon services. When they mess up your service you still pay 💰. Also, customer service treats you like They are paying you and not the other way around. Those companies have Never asked me to rate them. They Suck❗️So when I hear people whining about the little things that FREE Hangouts could have. I say shut up❗️It really is a wonderful tool. Thank you Hangouts❗️😄
