Fragment Hangouts? Yeah sure, great idea. We have a solid idea, now time to make it more of a pain for everyone to use. Allo, Duo, ah screw that. It was well hyped, and we could have combined them. But whatever. We don't care about our users.
Google looks really lost. Why else would they be destroying their userbase with this fragmented crap. Give us one good solid Hangouts that can do everything, not a dozen different messaging programs that do just one thing. Pay attention!
Here's an awesome idea: You should combine Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat into one awesome app and call it "Hangouts"!!! Wait... I guess that's already been done. Leave Hangouts alone! Stop wasting our time with these worthless apps! (Messenger, Allo, Duo, Hangouts Chat, Hangouts Meet). BTW congratulations on your "Who's Down" failing to launch! Go crawl in a corner and cry. Stop trying to destroy a good app... (Hangouts)
This would be useful if it had builtin chat. Same problem in having with duo. WhatsApp is still the best. Or three original Hangouts, but no one uses that anymore. It was great being built into Gmail
All the five star reviews are suspect for this app. Google, thanks for fragmenting your messaging ecosystem again, and making me explain what app to use when/where to my friends and associates. This is a bad user experience since now I have all the Google messaging apps on my phone in case I can't interface with one of my clients.
Firstly, it's obvious the flurry of 5 star ratings at the beginning were fake (sponsored, Google employees, whatever). Stop turning your most loyal supporters (I.e. me) against you by confusing the hell out of me with so many apps that do the same thing. I don't know which one to use and neither do my friends. We all tied the new ones and just went back to hangouts
