So glad HANGOUTS hasn't been canceled yet, because this app is annoying. Everything left aligned and no bubble/color options makes it hard to follow conversations (crazy because this is the only text/chat app that does this). Notifications aren't auto-cleared when viewed from the website (Hangouts has done it for years). Lack of direct video calling. Forcing people to drop a proven product and use an inferior one is NOT the right way to go.

Hi, Jeff. Classic Hangouts is being replaced by Google Chat. You can continue your conversations in Chat in Gmail, or in the Chat app. For more info, please visit our help center article here - https://goo.gle/34j6SE5. Also, we're sorry to hear that. We'll pass this along to the team so they can review and make the Chat app even better. Thank you!

This app works fine enough, although there are multiple complaints I have about it. The calls are more complicated and the layout is confusing. My number one complaint is that if your trying to communicate with somebody that still has Google Hangouts it makes it incredibly difficult. From making calls, to sending videos or pictures, it doesn't make downloading the app worth it at all. I hope you fix this, or bring back Google Hangouts.

This app is good, but I really wish when you got a message it would notify you. It doesn't let you know when you have a text unless your sitting in the app waiting for one and even when you do that it takes forever to say when someone has texted you. Besides that it's a pretty good app. Just fix that and I'll give you five stars. I've made sure the notification settings are on MULTIPLE times. It's an issue that needs to be fixed on your end. Thanks
