Google is terrible at making apps and some of them are unusable, especially on macOS; but the Google Hangouts app for iOS rises to acceptable and except for missing the occasional message seems adequate and functional.
With the last two versions at least, people can barely hear me speak, even if I shout. Have to go with the regular phone app to have a conversation.
I had to revert back to iMessage as my default cause of the issue. I love hangouts but can't with this inconvenience and there's a min lag everytime j open the app and click a new message
You can see when the other person has read your message which is a nice feature.
I was still using AIM until I found out about Hangout and this is a better than most social platforms out there.
Using this app to manage Google Voice number allows for very easy utilization of the value of Google Voice.
It is one of better app included feature of iMessage and facetime audio combine. And better yet with your own number, must have app specially for children.
