MUCH Better App! I am really excited with the new steps android is taking to streamline some apps, and this one really excites me. After years of issues with the SMS and MMS feature, this app has been vastly improved in the last couple of years, and is now my main texting app. I wish Google would commit already to ONE texting app, but for now, this is the standard as far as I am concerned.
Great app This app is great for the tablet, where you don't have the ability for texting and calling(for the phone it's iffy, as you have the standard texting and calling abilities) If you're using a tablet, get this and the hangouts dialer and you'll never need to call or text using your phone plan again. You do need to set up a Google Voice number, but that's simple and painless.
Bluetooth connected calls does not work When connected to BMW Bluetooth. The messaging functions work. But when you try to call, it says your signal is too weak or you cannot hear what the recipient is saying as if she has been muted. Even if you are running wireless network data it still says the signal is too weak
Has potential but needs major overhaul Updated review! All the basics are there and it has built in SMS with my Google voice is awesome so I can use my PC to text. The bad: slow and clunky app but improving a bunch lately! pictures don't sync with Google photos (even fb messenger does this) and lack of features compared to other chat apps
I enjoy it :) But can i ask for one thing in this app to be added-on.. Screensharing on android? Like during a video chat i would like to show them my phone screen while LIVE. they will get to see. For example: youtube. Or my browser. Can you guys add that? I wana show them a movie. Or can you maximize the file mb..
an amazing service for free. i really can't say enough about google voice and hangouts. You can register a free phone number, link it to your hangouts, and make texts, MMS texts, send/receive phone calls, read voicemails, send/receive video calls, do group messaging ands more all for free anywhere you can get a good internet connection. if not for traveling, and needing service while on the road etc, it would make a phone carrier completely un necessary.
