Has a critical flaw on iPad 2/5
You can’t multitask with other apps while in a meeting. The app will start pausing the audio and eventually drop you out of the call if you’re switched to a different app after a few minutes.
Sloppy transition 2/5
I hardly know or care why hangouts is now split across two mobile apps and two websites, but only with one web browser. Why can’t the dev team follow standards?
Competitors are better. Features removed from regular hangouts (like calling a phone number; you know, the tough stuff) make it hard to justify using Meet.
Worst part: no audio output selection 1/5
Unlike hangout where you can choose which audio output you want to use: headphone, speaker, Bluetooth, meet just thinks it is smart enough to choose it for you, and it is NOT what most people want, especially when they have to use this app because they have to join a call while commuting. Fix it please Google. This app is meant for business use and it’d better to be flexible enough for busy professionals.
Let me use the microphone!!! 1/5
The app uses loudspeaker and doesn’t let you change it to microphone. This is ridiculous!!!
I can't use hangout on my phone I have a iPhone 6 1/5
I can't use hangout on my phone I have a iPhone thank you
iPad support has made this so much better 4/5
With very little fanfare this went for m a 1* to my new rating thanks to proper iPad support. So far also seems more stable
Can't call people in 1/5

Why change hangouts at all?
Needs Apple Watch app 3/5
to quickly mute and I mute like WebEx
You can do it, Google. 2/5
Friends, come on.
If Meet was a hybrid option, we wouldn’t be having this conversation; but when the app is a must-download in order to join a call and it follows up with a slew of issues - it becomes a problem.
1) It won’t allow you to use the app like a phone, it’s speakerphone or nothing (makes for an uncomfortable Uber ride)
2) I plug in my earphones but without a mic, it’s unusable (this does not happen with my normal phone calls)
3) Even with full service, the call continues to cut out until there’s simply no point to go on (now it’s an uncomfortable team meeting)
It frustrates me that Google forces you to download an app in order to use its services, but the app is what renders the service useless. Instead of looking at the services from a micro level, we need to view from a macro level and see how each service can support the other and not cut the consumer out. If you need an integrated manager, call me.
Needs iPad version 2/5
Please update to support iPad screen resolution!
Support iPad please 1/5
Too bad this does not support iPad. Works well in Chrome on Mac, but not useful at all for iPad users.
Could be SO much better... 2/5
This app could be excellent. The technology is good, it’s stable and efficient. However, the fact that this is only an iPhone app is absolutely crazy. No iPad app makes this a deal-breaker for me. I do almost all of my remote work on an iPad, so this app just doesn’t get used. PLEASE make an iPad app.
iPad incompatible 1/5
By Kiet T
The app scales down up to the iPad screen size
App not great 1/5
I love Hangouts meet on the web. It’s a little frustrating that it only works in Chrome, however when you use it in Chrome it’s pretty great. I love the idea of what google is going for.
On iPhone it’s a mediocre experience. It’s an ok app that works well enough most of the time, but it feels like an afterthought. As long as it continues to be polished, I think it’s in good shape.
The biggest problem is that it doesn’t have iPad support (and I want iPad Pro support). It’s kind of ridiculous that there is a meeting app that doesn’t have iPad and iPad Pro 13” support. That would be my biggest complaint on this app.
I really hope they continue to aggressively push this forward. I would love to replace our other meeting platform within the company with Meet, but with things like this missing, it’s not something we can do yet.
Horrible on mobile 1/5
Hangout was already sketchy on the go but Meet is even worst: I have to join meetings from my phone during my commute but unlike on desktop there is no way to disable video download, so I have to ask everyone to turn off their video otherwise I can’t hear them because it drops audio as it runs out of bandwidth. Also there is no way to switch the audio to use the internal speaker (hangouts could do that), so that I can hold my phone... like a phone.
IPad and iOS screen streaming support please 3/5
I want to love this. On iOS for iPad this obviously would benefit being made for iPad.
Toss in the new iOS 11 screen streaming and you guys will turn the iPad into a powerhouse
Google intentionally reduce features for iPhone users 1/5
Unlike other 3rd party conference apps, Google keeps key features only for Android OS. You can not zoom in when viewing somebody's presentation with iOS, but that feature is available for Android.
Go-to meeting, WebEx, Skype for business, all have equivalent features for iOS and Android. Since Meet is used in corporate environment, individuals don't have a choice but to use this application for work.
Google, stop degrading your apps and leave your OS war with Apple at the OS level and not victimize the users because the selected a non Android phone.
No iPad version 1/5
That there’s no native iPad version is really inexcusable. We expect a lot more from Google, especially for a business-focused app.
No iPad Support 1/5
Support for iPad is a must-have! Hangouts does support iPad and this is a serious oversight for something so simple to be implemented!
A business app that doesn’t support the iPad 1/5
I found out about this app though a meeting invite I got from a co-worker at work.
I’m not sure why they decided to make an app that does less than Google Hangouts supports less platforms than Hangouts. No native iPad support and the web version only works ok Chrome on OS X.
Also I couldn’t get it to work with my Bluetooth ear piece.
Don't use on iPad! 1/5
Unless I run it in gross compatibility/zoom mode, the viewable area is not any larger than my phone. It blows my mind that an app dedicated to *paying enterprise customers* would not even carry over basic feature parity from the free version.
Please make an iPad version. 3/5
Today's hangout meeting experience on the iPad is very poor.
By Jazz is the best autobot lol14
Need an iPad app an telephone support 2/5
The app works pretty well on the phone, but we really need a more unified and mature platform for business use.
No chat 1/5
Without chat I can't share links to other people I'm meeting with. This is a huge pain for business meetings.
Doesn't work without wifi 1/5
The new meet app will drop you from meetings unless you are on Wifi. Usually about 60 seconds into the call, no error message, just brings you back to the home screen.
Why another hangouts app? 2/5
With the release of meet I now have three different versions of hangouts on windows and two iOS apps. Stupid. This does almost nothing to change hangouts and simply is confusing to everyone.
New app be careful 2/5
By K. Farr
Not reliable yet, dropped without error message during meeting. Couldn't launch from calendar like old app via hangouts. Had to go back to desktop via chromed browser
Screen share 3/5
Please add the screen share feature for ipad.
