UPDATE (3/22/24) The new Google Chat is AWESOME! Thanks for making the necessary changes Google! Original Review: It's so close but has one fatal flaw. It doesn't allow you to delete or edit entries like slack, Whatsapp, and Microsoft teams do. That's a major, major miss and prevents me from using this as my primary cross platform communication tool with friends and family. To make matters worse, I think it's a business decision because I understand the corporate version has this feature.

The messages and new updates are atrocious. I hate them. (NO offense to google chat designers) PLEASE change it back to the old messages layout. Or at least make a setting to switch from the old layout to the new one. This new layout is only somewhat suitable for phones. It is very inconvienent to keep looking left and right to read messages. It would be so much easier and better if i could just look in one place to get all the info i need. If I could set a 0 star review, I would.

Workable but still not as good as it should be. When a new message comes in while responding via notification, the input box and keyboard disappear causing a lot of accidentally tapped notifications. There are no read receipts in group chat. A huge disappointment that there is no scheduled send feature. The new home page bar shouldn't be floating (this one might actually be implemented better then most, but I can't understand why anyone thinks floating buttons that obstruct content are good).
