There’s a problem 3/5
For some reason, it says that it’s downloaded on the App Store but it’s not on my iPad. And I can’t open it through the App Store either. Can this be fixed please?
Storage Issues 2/5
By Firestar Rulz
Despite the fact that I have already downloaded the app (and that the app continues to update with the most recent videos, images, and text from the people I write to) this app still will not allow me to use it because my "storage is too full". Look, if I can see the app updating conversations being this "storage is too full" popup, then clearly my storage is empty enough to allow me to access the app. Does the app partially un-download itself once most of the storage space on the device is used up? When check storage in the "Usage" panel of settings, it says that hangouts is taking up a fair amount of storage, even though I cannot use the app.
If the storage space on my iPad is already being used by the app AND the app is able to run despite having a limited amount of storage, then why can I not access it? This has rendered this app completely useless to me. It was fine before this, but I don't want to have to spend 8 hours every day trying to clean my storage out just to use the app when I can wait the same amount of hours to open it on a separate device that doesn't kick me back to the app.every time I try to log in on a browser. Plus, now I have a whole bunch of items I've accidentally deleted while attempting to clear my storage just to use the app. Please fix this.
(PostScript: If this is because my camera cannot take pictures or video, then just block those options where there isn't enough space. I don't even use my camera. Don't completely block me out of the entire app just because a few features can't work under very particular circumstances.)
Video Chatting Bug 3/5
There's been a bug when you video chat. You talk to the person and then after a little bit you can't hear them. I'm tired of ending the call every time it happens. Please fix
Love it 5/5

I love hangouts it is like FaceTime and calling all in one. If you can’t FaceTime get this app. The number one app.
Speakerphone failure iOS11 2/5
The latest version for iOS 11, when using a video call, does not use the lower loud speakers on your phone, but rather the phone call mini speaker, making calls difficult. Tried reinstalling, no luck.
I love hangout too. 5/5
By Vampire Hunter E
Hangouts helps me keep in touch with my friends. My friends are on hangouts, and got me to sign up. We chat, share photos, and exchange links with each other using hangouts.
Hangouts keeps me in touch! 5/5
My grandchildren live in Indiana and I live in Georgia. They are 10, and 13 and at such an important time in their life I am so glad to be able to stay in touch in real time, keep up with all the interesting things in their lives, the wonderful changes they are about to experience.They send me videos they created, pictures of accomplishments and just to tell me they love me. Thanks Hangouts!
I love Hangouts! It allows me to talk and see our children and
Grands . So far I have not experienced any problems.
Love the app! Just one confusion! 5/5
By tѕukí hσѕhí
I loge the app, you should definitely get it because this was my way of getting in contact with friends that only have gmails! But, recently, my bubbles have turned black! Not sure why, but the font was white. Maybe the person blocked me or something, because the black background is only featured on one of my texts--my best friend's.
Good but has bugs 4/5
It's a very nice app for school clubs to organize meetings. But there are some bugs. Ive turned off notifications but I still get notifications about what people are saying in a chat. Ill be trying to watch a video and they'll blow up my phone and I can't even turn notifications off. That's my only complaint otherwise it's a great app🙃
I love hangout. Great features. New emoji. And its google. 5/5

Not good for incoming calls 2/5
Since update (late 2017) I don’t have a speakerphone option anymore???
I have trouble using the interface, adding and deleting contacts, etc but the biggest problem is that when my phone rings thru hangouts, I can't answer it. I unlock the phone, swipe, whatever, and it always hangs up by the time i'm in the app. You can have it forward your calls to your phone (by logging into google voice) but that defeats the purpose of free calls. I don't have good reception in my house, which is why i needed a number to use over wifi, but since i can't answer, it's more like a pager. It is good for text messages, and making calls, but not for receiving.
Good, but... 3/5
It’s decent, but I can’t believe this still doesn’t support split screen.
Latest version missing speaker button 1/5
By Dani SSS
Latest version on the new iOS is missing the option to change from phone to speaker phone. Forced to put my ear on the phone!! Buggy
Speaker icon disappears right after making a call. 3/5
By GV star
I used to be able to switch between speaker or the ear piece or headset but after the latest update that icon is disappearing so quickly that I can not touch it fast enough. Is it just me or the latest update really messed it up?
I love it! 5/5
Speakerphone option is gone after updating to iOS11.
Good app, uses emails so there's no phone numbers to remember. I can rely on it to talk to my friends from different countries without the complication of phone bills or anything. Video calling is amazing and much better than anything I've used besides FaceTime.
Decent. Would be perfect with Watch support 4/5
I love hangouts and have used it for years. That said, Apple Watch support (better than just notifications, closer to how it is on android wear) would make it perfect.
Hangouts is a really good app. I used to not have a phone so it was my only way of contacting my friends... given they had hangouts (or I had friends 😓). Now that all my friends and I have phones pretty much I really don’t use it much but it really is a good app!
Can’t send message to short number 2/5
By Ws seven 7
This version can’t send message to short number like 729725 which considered as invalid phone number. Why???
I LOVE HANGOUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 5/5
It really good because my bfffffff left to India and I can chat with her and my mom and dad to I just love it😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
No speaker?? 4/5
I love hangouts and i use it all the time, but recently i found out once i updated it there was no way to put calls on speaker. It would be much easier to have it back since i dont enjoy using headphones. When im in a call, it usually lasts for 2 - 5 hours and its very inconvenient to be home alone and still using headphones. please fix it, its annoying
Works well 5/5
Phone calls, messages, video chats, meetings... they all work quite well.
Perfect for mixed platforms 5/5
By Amy Lane HK
Our team is mixed android and iPhone - group texting unreliable- hangouts perfect on phone and desktop.
Needs an Apple Watch app!! 1/5
Needs an Apple Watch app!!
Not to mention ability to search through previous messages to find text!
Used to love it... 1/5
I used to use hangouts a lot to chat with my friends. I had an iPad 2, but it was snappy and fast. A lot has changed since then. Now, it glitches when scrolling through a chat—especially in group chats—and half the time, messages do not send or they do send after an obscene amount of time for a 1-line message. I have changed my WiFi router multiple times and got an iPad Air and an iPhone 6, but nothing got better; in fact, things have gotten even worse over time. Switching back to iMessage.
Keep in touch 5/5
Great way to stay in touch while traveling! I’m in Canada for a trip and was able to easily get in touch with customer service at my airline to reroute my trip home. Thank google for hangouts!

Never stop supporting it!!! 3/5
I've been using Google Hangouts since 2013 as one of my main forms of communication. I've liked the interface for all the years I've used it and all of the improvements from sending multiple photos to sending your location to your friend(s), to even the animated emoji gumdrop gifs that you could send dubbed "stickers" (which are still cute as hell)!
It's basically a triple threat app that needs to still be relevant if Google expects to compete with Apple in any way. It has FaceTime, Phone, and iMessage all in one and it's taken for granted every single day as it loses support for the newer apps like Allo and Duo.
It's frustrating to see Allo and Duo catch on when they're two separate apps that can do what Hangouts has been doing for years.
Keep it around, update it, don't let it die!
Update: On iOS 11.0.3, it seems it’s having some issues with photos? Whenever I try to go to my photos directly inside the app and share a photo, it won’t let me. It’ll tell me to Cancel or Choose, and when I tap Choose, it slide over and shows the photo with no way to go back to typing or viewing my conversation. I have to forcibly close the app. Another issue would be that it won’t let me share my gifs via the share extension. It does allow me to share, but it freezes the gifs in place, making them a still.
I hope you guys resolve this problem. It’s a great app that still deserves support.
Cool app 4/5
I enjoy the freeness and available video chatting capabilities.. the volume at times is an issue but I enjoy
On your latest iOS “update”, you guys forgot the speaker option when you dial someone.
Please debounce push notifications 3/5
It’s so annoying if you’re trying to use your phone but a group chat keeps sending notifications. After you get a few notifications in a row, don’t send more for N minutes, or at least back off the rate!
Love it!!!! 3/5
By Hawk girl lover
I am able to text with my friends and family and not get charged. Hangouts is the reason that I can stay in touch with friends that moved. And friends that moved to different schools. Including cousins that live far. I finally feel like I have a real phone!!!!!!!!!!!😋🐯
Solution achieved 5/5
Google Hangouts to the rescue. I can chat with my mom who doesn't have a cell phone but lives miles away. Easy to use for the both of us and offers me security to set eyes on her from afar. Plus the conference feature lets the grandkids, doctors and others communicate live!!
I use hangouts everyday! 4/5
I love hangouts, but the italic function doesn't work and I need it to emphasize my memes
Great app 5/5
Very similar to other messenger apps but works much smoother
Great app 5/5
Can use on all devices. Syncs beautifully
I use to love this app! 2/5
By Top cat89
This would be great if it worked. I loved it for a while. Now all of a sudden I no longer get my calls.
By Hi it sed to
I can keep in touch with my frend who can't use other apps do I love this app
Worked great, at first 3/5
I loved this app at first. Was able to talk to friends out of the country. But now, it hangs up my texts and won’t deliver for up to an hour or more. Very frustrating when you’re trying to have a conversation with someone. This happens whether I’m on my home wi-fi or away from home. Not real impressed with this.
By Voice Purist
It is really a shame that google does promote this app more. It is awesome for use at work.
Good, but... 2/5
I love how the app integrates with in Gmail. However, the voice to text is absolutely horrible.
It's just perfect
Nothing but spam 2/5
I’m getting bombarded with “girls” trying to “hook up”. Terrible.
Hangouts is Great 5/5
By PvzZ2 addict
Hangouts is a great app that helps me connect to friends no matter where I am, even when I'm out of country and have no cell service, and allows me to text and call with any device simply through the internet. I highly recommend it
Helps me keep in contact with my daughter 5/5
I love this app since its user friendly and helps me keep in contact with my daughter when she comes home from school. I like that it's very fast and sending photos and videos are easy as well as video calling.
It won't let me log on to my account keep on saying valid account 5/5
By Bad to me
It won't let me sign on my account it will say valid account
I love hangouts..but 3/5
Recently a feature was removed at least I think of an icon in a call that allowed phone call sound or speaker sound and I can no longer hear people because it does not let me change it to speaker.
