Disappointed... I've been using this app since it was released. Worked great, all the little additions to it are great. But recently, the notifications haven't been working properly. When I open the app, I'll get all my texts, but as soon as I lock my phone, I won't get notifications for them for hours, even if it's running in the background. This app is good for me because I live in an area with poor cell service but good internet, so I can text family and friends easily through it. But it's been working poorly recently and I'm really disappointed.
It's a beautiful app with great features but I don't really know anybody who uses it. I think, to compete with iMessage, it should be able to work as a default SMS app as well as what it currently is. This would lead to more people using it because right now I can't really transition to the app because I don't have friends that actively use it. Please add this feature and it will be the goto messenger of Android.
Support full txt, there is absolutely no reason this app can't support text messaging like Imessage and such. I don't know what the vision is but if it's not Allo then you guys need to make something similar to imessage and FaceTime that's native to the operating system. It's not rocket science, IOS had it for 7 Years and their software sucks.
Notification problem. The notification won't go away even after reading the message. It pops up again for the same message. Missing features are 1)Last seen of contacts needed. 2)Option to hide or lock incognito chat with password/pattern would be great. 3)Can't select multiple message threads. So to delete messages have to do it one by one. That's really irritating. Fix it.
Had it from day one. Never received one text on it yet. Even if it had SMS I don't think I would use it tho. Textra is just to good. Google played around for too long and just shoot themselves in the foot time after time. Hangouts was it and they dropped the ball. Notifications don't work on the S8. It's worthless
Amazing app altogether. Best in the market and very convenient and easy to use. Google assistant is great. Can't do without it anymore. Net consumption is also not high and download upload speed is great. Though I can't see the last seen of the other person which should be a field. Also would like you to give more options in the chat themes etc.
