WIDGET GONE✖ I've NEVER used your internet call etc. Ok, no Widget anymore - a heads up would have meant I wouldn't have updated this app. Sure widget isn't very useful - but that's one less app to have to click on to see details of forgotten last messages.
Update: No more widget! No pop up notification/reply? I love this app! My one pet peeve is that the pop up notification to reply isn't there anymore and I loved that feature on the old GTalk. If you bring it back I'll give you that last star! :-) That's all that's missing and then this would be the most perfect app. :-) UPDATE!: New update removed the widget. 😦 😤why?! Bring it back. I don't want to hate this app... But it's getting harder to like it.
Messages don't send when on Wi-Fi Not sure why but SMS messages rarely send when I'm on a Wi-Fi network. Not sure why it matters but once one doesn't send any message attempts after first failed attempt never go out. Even when switching off Wi-Fi. I have to restart phone to get messaging to work.
Don't subject yourself to this. This app is terrible and the developers should feel terrible. Poor performance, buggy bug-fixing, and unreliable. Hangouts is quickly becoming a dead end.
No color options The new interface is ugly, plain and boring. There should be an option to change the colors. Gray, green and white in conversations are so bland and makes me want to end the conversation asap to get away from the dreary feeling it gives me.
