User Reviews and Comments
I have an iPhone 5 and this app is terrible. Messages take 5 minutes to load or send. Loading takes an awful long time, too. Facebook messenger / iMessage is much superior. I wish I didn't have to use hangout. It's that awful. None of the updates have solved this.
Works pretty good, but incoming calls don't ring the phone even though the setting is set to. Please update.
Not updated for iOS 7 and won't stop ringing my house phone! But has good call quality and mostly reliable connections.
Chatting works pretty well for me but I'd like to see Google launch a new iOS 7 friendly UI.
My only complaint is no ios7 support yet will change when added
Hey about a way to actually search the chats? Google is a search engine after all.
Needs more tones for ios devices. I hate having to have my volume blasted just to here when I receive a message
Video chat works good for a couple of minutes...literally. Then the audio stops working on one or both ends. The video quality is not that great either. Thinking I'm better off deleting the app and finding a new one.
Keeps timing out.
I'm giving it 3 stars because while I love Hangouts on my PC, it's ridiculously slow. I send my messages and they don't come through until 3 minutes later. If this problem is fixed, i will come back and give it 5 stars...
Finally!!!! An app that doesn't work for iPhones, iPads or iPod 5th gen but works for iPod 4th gen! I have an iPod touch 4th gen and not many apps work on it, most of the apps only work on iPhones, but this one doesn't! Haha!
Why not integrate Hangouts with Google Voice! All you have to do is let us be able to contact anyone on our phone contacts like you're able to on Google Voice. Why the need to have people sign up for Google +? I'm not a Google + subscriber and I don't plan on being one, so the app becomes worthless to me for not being able to message anyone that is not in the Google ecosystem and this probably applies to mostly everyone else. You've already integrated VoIP into this app, so why not. As for the Voice app, it doesn't work, so this would be the ideal situation.
This originally was a pretty cool app. But the latest versions have been terrible. First, there were no notifications and no posting of pictures. Now that problem seems to have been resolved but now there is a good two to three minute lag between hearing the notification and the message actually showing up. The same lag applies to a message I send as well.
Finally, an app that is the replacement for google voice. I can get incoming and make outgoing calls without it transferring to my cell plan. Very useful on the global road... And everyone can reach me on one number.
With the exception of Google Maps, everything else Google makes is non user friendly, cluttered, confusing and very hard to operate. You'll be very frustrated and disappointed with is app, even if you get it to work by accident. Look for less frustrating alternatives.
This app works great on my iPhone 5s with latest software. Thanks Google!
In the time it's taken to load a conversation on the app, I've gotten another device, found the app in the App Store and wrote this review. I might as well carry a laptop at all times and hunt for wifi whenever I need to do a hangout - it would be quicker than waiting for this app to load.
Cant know if my friend are online or not
New features are great including being able to quickly tell who is online. Wish there was a way to filter by online status however. Unfortunately the app is still exceedingly slow and has not improved in messaging responsiveness since this app was released. It can still take upwards of MINUTES for a message to be sent. Chat pages take forever to update and annoyingly cancels your message mid sentence if it tries to update while you are typing. Don't understand how this app is this poorly programmed, you would think google engineers would be on top of their stuff, but even no name developers can write responsive messaging apps.
Would love to get SMS/MMS support!
DO NOT DOWNLOAD. Not only is it nonfunctional, but it will prevent you from going invisible in NORMAL chat! JUST SAY NO.
Ok too bad apple had them cripple the app
Not easy to use at all. Come on people.
En iphone no trae smileys asi q no es 100% usable me quedo con line o skype
Keeps trying to install and fails.
I have reinstalled this app at least three times. It is absolutely terrible on iphone and more so on ios7. Get it together, Google, and make a decent Hangouts app. If you make it, they will come.
The messaging is pretty buggy and Wierd. Please update this app.
it does mostly what it promises, but it's not consistently on, and most annoyingly, it doesn't tell you who's online.
It's nice to have an app on my phone that displays Jabber chats that I would otherwise miss when I'm not near my computer. The unread badge on the app icon is accurate but very frequently I can not find the unread message in the app. I often open Hangouts and read some messages only to see remaining badge count on the icon when I press the home button. This usually requires me to reopen and tap on almost every current and archived message. Please solve the badge count issue. It would be even better if you could auto decrement the unread badge count when I read the message on my computer via Jabber. Just now for instance I have a badge count of 1 remaining, but can not get it to clear… (I'll update my review when the badge count is fixed and when Hangouts adopts the iOS 7 UI)
I see lots of complaints here about this app. However, compared to Skype, it has few problems. My husband us overseas and we talk everyday using this app. When he was working out of town a few years ago, we had all sorts of bad issues with the other . I downloaded skype and it gave my computer a virus. We went to hangouts, and am satisfied. There are some issues, like getting to it when I have to put in my pass code. Occasionally lose pic, but does the job for us. No major complaints.
Installed it mainly for video calling. Quality of video average when compared to FaceTime. However hangout allows me to call non iOS devices which is a big advantage. A 10 minute call heats up the phone tremendously and you can see battery being drained out! Quite a few audio glitches. Not great as of now.
I love it! I'm glad a lot of my friends have it. I just really need you to update the video chat, it's really laggy
Use gchat/hangout a lot for work - so happy to be able to keep up conversations on my phone, when not on my computer. But hate that I have to sign out to go offline. Why can't I change my own status to Invisible or offline?
How is Google+ so great on iOS and Gmail and Google Hangouts so bad? A lot of room for improvement.
The slowest and the buggiest messaging app I have used till date. I hope they would improve in future.
To me, it's a slow, laggy thing. In addition, sometimes messages disappear during they are being sent. Tried to figure out why the problems happen but failed. (Connection, my machine, update status, and other developer-thinkable 'user fault' issues...) Using iPhone 5 with iOS 7.0.4, not JB'd. Even frustrating thing is: it normally does itself when it's reinstalled; only for 2 or 3 days. I feel like Sisyphus! (Yeah!) I wouldn't try to use this one if a good bunch of my friends use this app as a group messenger. I don't understand how this thing can be made out of the Google's hand.
This app is fun and I can stay in touch with my family, but the only thing I have a problem with is the video chat. The video quality is horrible on my iPod 4 and I know some people that have iPhone 5c's and their quality isn't that great, so just fix the video chat quality, performance, and speed and it will be perfect!
La App esta algo descompleta, muy cerrada para ser más claro y la interfaz está fuera de base en iOS 7 un lavado de cara junto con algo más de funcionalidades la haría más interesante
Needs font adjustments and iOS 7 support. Simple and works ok.
It used to work a few weeks ago, now it won't even connect and won't ever let me make a hangout without making me send a crash report. Don't download this app it has just lost it's value. Smh
Well, I download this app back in sept. However have not used it fully till today. I called NYC to DR and it was so cool. I don't have to pay an charges as long as the person has Gmail. Awesome !
Disable the feedback feature. It triggers multiple times a day as I use the app. I've never had any feedback to submit but have triggered the popup hundreds of times. Ridiculous.
Was wondering how to get gtalk on my phone! Finally found it! This has push notifications and works when you're not in the app unlike other gtalk apps. Needs an update though as it still uses the old keyboard
I wanted to use this for work through my work email but it requires a google+ account, which I do not want to create with my work email. Stinks because I really need hangouts on my phone.
Works fine and does everything it says, just update it for the iOS 7 look
Please update this app to iOS 7 theme
Very nice interface and it works flawlessly.
It's not a perfect app but it's better than anything else out there. I'm sure it'll continue to be updated
