All my chat needs in one place My one stop shop for chatting with both Android and iPhone (via SMS) users. Quick, easy to use, simple interface. It was 5 stars, but they lost one when they removed merged conversations. It was NOT complicated and I used it all the time. Lost the other star when they started pushing the half-baked Allo app at the expense of Hangouts. If they had SMS fail over and Google Assistant in Hangouts, it would easily rival iMessage. But Google hates the Hangouts community apparently.
Basically great app Well, the app is basically good. One major concern: when used on the watch, why can't we start a new sms message? It can only reply existing messages.
Communication everywhere This is the first communication app to have text, pictures, and video on Android, iOS, and web. I can use it with everyone!
Best Need to add delivery notification. Merge hangout & Google duo instead have two apps.
Needs" inapp" ability to draw on a pictures... I'd like the ability to draw on a picture from within the app, without having to install a separate app just to circle or underline something. WhatsApp and Facebook messenger has this exact feature.
Not bad but l don't use it that often
