Love translucent UI and dark mode So nice to get a useful app that isn't the usual white screen, eye-burnung, battery-draining experience. It does take a bit of experimenting to see how it works. 1. It must be enabled in settings as a Notification app. The easiest way to that is to enable the lockscreen widget and follow the instructions. 2. Completing step one above makes the Homescreen widget available. 3. Settings for the widget are configured only upon adding it to a screen. 4. It only shows unread which saves ram and battery.
No longer works The Hangouts widget no longer works on my Samsung Note 3. When I go to add it to my screen, it says "Hangouts no longer available". This is a total bummer. I loved having the widget up on my screen so I could just take a quick glance and see who called my Gvoice number or text me without opening the app. Could this please be fixed so it works again?? I miss this feature of the program.
Works as advertised Love the transparent look. Fits well with how I keep all my widgets. Clean interface. Only thing I would wish for is if it could open the specific conversation that you click on but I don't think it's possible since it's a third party app. Only real option for a hangouts widget now since Google yanked the official widget from hangouts.
Nice Does exactly what it says. I don't know why everyone is whining about features that it doesn't even mention having in the description then they one star the app because of it. Really? If you want direct access to your messages from the widget code the app yourself. Jerks
Terrible all around Chat threads don't update, can't open specific conversions from the widget, photos don't display. The only feature it shares with the app it's trying to replace is the fact that it doesn't work and it takes up space. Would gladly have paid money for a functioning app.
Needs serious work There is no reason for each thread to be another "button" because they all lead to the main conversations page. It's glitchy, and unresponsive. The only reason this app is this common is because it's one of the only widgets for hangouts. It's the least terrible, period
- Lock Screen Widget
- Redesign with transparency and new icon
- Configure transparency for each widget
- New Dark Mode
If the widget stops working after the update, please readd it. I am aware of an issue where the widget may lose recent conversations, this has been fixed for future updates...
