The only thing that I HATE about this app (and the desktop version) is the fact that you can not delete or edit a message without having a work or school email, which is really ridiculous. I think that the deleting and editing features should be available for personal emails as well. There are so many messaging apps that include the edit and delete feature, yet, there isn't any in this app.

Exponentially worse than Hangouts. I gave it a fair chance, does not hold up. If you like getting 48 notifications from a single group message for your phone AND email, yet, never getting a response bc no one saw YOUR message, you found the perfect app for you! The only good thing about this thing is that you can preview links. The UI sucks, all conversations are just lists, and when you send messages, they're on the same side as received messages. This is a downgrade. Worse since it was forced

Much worse than Hangouts. I dislike that you can only send one image at a time, that whenever you try to put asterisks around something, it makes it bold, the conversations are divided into "Chats" and "Spaces" instead of all in one list, you can't join by link like you could on Hangouts. Also, if you jump up to last read, it often cuts out many messages in between where you jumped to and new messages. A couple valid upgrades are the GIF keyboard, the wider variety of emojis, and dark mode.

Hi, Silas. We really appreciate you taking the time to give us your opinion and feedback. Please know that we are working hard to add this feature. Renaming ‘rooms’ to ‘spaces’ has not changed Chat room functionality in any way. For more information, please visit our help center article here - https://goo.gle/3EobJ3Z. I hope this helps!
