It’s ok 3/5
By cute panda kid
I love the app a very good way to see people who don’t have phone numbers but the one issue is that using google meet it is super hard to call you have to sign up and stuff it will a very confusing and I still don’t know how to call now. So I hope they can please continue to use their own calling way again?
Good app but it keeps stopping 😳😳
Love hangout 5/5
I really love it!
Tengo mucho que agradecerle a esta aplicación 5/5
me gustado todas la conversaciónes importantes en mi vida y siempre fue una herramienta que ocupe para estar en comunicación con una persona muy especial para mi aun que ya no pueda estar con esa persona Gracias.
I would say this is just amazing it is a fun way for me and my friends to keep in touch and to me that is very important especially during these hard times. There all all different options like calling, video calling and texting. Overall just an amazing app if you don’t have massages like me!!!!
GREAT APP 5/5

Hangouts is a great website and app for communicating with your friends.
Google ruined hangouts 2/5
By 2:59 PM
I use google hangouts because I have an iPod and my friend has an android so we couldn’t call without it. Now that google made us use google meet I mean what is the point of hangouts. If they let us use the call function like regular I would rate it five stars. Disappointed in you google. :(
Cyber criminal paradise, Google doesn’t police this platform at all and gives scammers free rein 1/5
By Engineer RJ
I was accosted on Words with Friends by a catfisher and they invited me over to Hangouts. After they asked me for a gift card I knew it was a scam and complained to Zynga (company that owns wwf) as well as Google. Zynga did the responsible thing and kicked the catfisher off of their platform.
Google says they have a policy that prohibits requesting money from other users but they don’t enforce it. I sent a certified mail letter letter to Google CEO Sundar Pichai describing my experience with a catfisher on Hangouts and never received a reply. I also filed a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
This user patriciamary620 still has their Google Hangouts account and is still using it at the time of this writing.
Google seems to be more interested in enforcing political correctness on their platforms than they are about keeping real criminals away from them.
NEVER USE THIS APP WITH PEOPLE YOU DON’T KNOW!!!!!!!
My review on hangouts 5/5
Hangouts have really helped me connect with my friends and cousin which doesn’t have a phone. I would say this is the most connecting app I’ve seen. Get it it's free!!
By TeamFlare boy1
Could use some work with sending videos. I personally don’t like that you can only send 5 minute videos and that they don’t send right then and there (sometimes they send overnight). Sometimes when I go into my gallery to click on a video my screen freezes and the video doesn’t load. Thank you.
SCAMMERS GALORE 3/5
I wasn’t sure if you’re aware this app is being used like crazy for scammers. They look you up on other forums then ask you chat on here instead. Not the apps fault of course. Just a heads up for all you out there and the developers..
The new update 3/5
By Existing Person-
I dislike the new update a lot I miss just being able to start a call easily, so if you can just bring that feature back that would be great!
GET APP DELETED 1/5
People are starting to hack it and have your phone staying on video call I got frauded and now my whole life is gonna be done but I need this app to be deleted please I beg
By McKenzie Gale Manoles
I love that this is an app and a website! I can talk to my friends so much more often. Super helpful!! 👍
It’s a very fun app, very easy to communicate with friends all over the world
this app has kept me and my siblings connected for more than half of my life, thank you
Hangouts for ever! 3/5
Personally I think that google hangouts is a very good app for chatting and calling. You can add lots of people,change your profile pic and send gifs, stickers and emojis. I think maybe you could add more features to it but otherwise it is a great app!
It’s great except, 4/5
It’s a great app really but the new update was a surprise.
Still great, but a little disappointed 4/5
I have been using hangouts for two years now and I used to love it. I had a friend who has a Android, so we’d use this app to ”facetime”. But now google took the call feature out, this app is kinda pointless for us. All you can do is text, which we can do already in messages. I guess if the person you use it with doesn’t have a phone number this is an okay app to use for that. But I’m taking a star off because of the calling feature being taken off.
Friends & Hangouts 2/5
By gooch -one
I downloaded this app because I had a friend that wanted to chat on it instead of on where we met. I don’t use it except to chat with that friend. So I can’t give a high star rating because I don’t use it but for that friend.
Hangouts downgrade 2/5
This version is a definite downgrade to the hangouts experience.
Instead of having a chat with people and press a single button to start a call or video chat you now have to create a link to meet, share that and then switch apps.
This is a cumbersome new process for something that worked seamlessly in previous versions and having to explain all this to non-technical people will be a reason to move away from hangouts and meet.
This is called an “integration” with Meet, no idea where they are integrated if everything is a manual process on the user’s side. New versions should add value to users not subtract.
Google Meet broke its usefulness!! 1/5
With the removal of regular video calling for Google meet makes this app USELESS! Honestly, who wants to click a link to meet all the time between family and friends. It used to be easy group video calling, now it doesn’t even ring because you need to create a ‘meeting’!!! Don’t make a personal app into a freaking business app! Freaking largest mistake Google has ever made!!! Don’t waste your time on this useless app if you want to video call!!!
Hangouts not loading 3/5
By iphone in illinois
I used to have no problem with hangouts. Then it started not loading part of the time. This could be fixed by turning off the phone and restarting it. But with successive iOS updates it has gotten worse. Now it seldom loads.
Oddly, it works fine on my iPad—just the iPhone is affected. Deleting it and reinstalling doesn’t fix it.
Otherwise I find Hangouts to be usable and a great way to keep in touch. Good that you are now getting it integrated with Google Meet, too.
Hangouts is the best!!!! 5/5
I’ve been using Hangouts for years and have never had an issue with it. It is especially useful when traveling abroad.
Best ever app! 5/5
By samuel kvl
Hangout is the coolest app everyone can ever use! You can add as much as people you want to, very easy to use and talk too!
The new update 1/5
By Kae: . )
Everyone hates the new update because if they already have the app they can’t just like go they had to download a new other app which is me and I tried to call my friends on my phone now but I can’t because the stupid update.
Google has ruined Hangouts 3/5
Before the most recent update, there were occasional bugs. Enough to make me give them a four star. From various things such as when you join a call, it would act as if you were receiving a call for over five seconds and you couldn’t hear nor talk. Other bugs included some inducing whence sending photos and videos, as well as the extremely poor quality in all videos (though this is not a bug, just the way that the app is.) What has further lowered my rating on Hangouts is their most recent update. The update now requires you to set a google meet in order to call or FaceTime. This is most infuriating in group chats, because it sends a message with a link, but most people do not suspect a call unless they actually hear a REAL CALL. Google meet (just use it and you’ll see) is not at all practical for casual conversation, nor official meetings, and is still very clunky and even MORE BUGGY. Much of this you have to use to understand. I’m still going to use the app. I have to. Hangouts is strong in the area of connecting more people than ever, because all you need is a Gmail or some school emails (though school emails are a bit limited, they can’t send photos or videos, but that is understandable.) I’m just disappointed that Google is valuing Google meet over the people. I hope this review was helpful, and congrats for reaching the end!
Love it! 5/5
By jay burgie
i love google hangouts! easy to use and fun! it’s also good for people or kids with ipods so they can text friends or family who have an android and can’t text them using their regular messaging. Had it for years, and is still awesome.
Shut down hangout 1/5
Way to many scammers on hangout and they avoid using video chats. We need hangout shut down all old version . Start forcing people using text with live camera video (no prerecorded video) so I can see who I am texting with to avoid being tricked. Google you can make this better by the suggestion that I just made to you. We need to capture criminals better! If they avoid face scan so you know they should not be using google idea chat. We need better proof who we are texting with and I am deaf. Thank you!
This app 1/5
This app is so bad when I downloaded it it showed that I had already texted people and is very loudly and I don’t like it so I would give it -10 stars but that’s not an option so I have to do one star do not download this app download China.
well made app 5/5
By review writer number 1852.321
Well made up, good for texting and calling no glitches
Google Hangouts is amazing! It helps me keep in touch with my friends and family, I absolutely love it!!!!!
very good 5/5
very good application that helps me stay connected in my classes and talk with my friends
This is an amazing app to use for online friends who don’t have or can’t get Discord! You can call, video chat, send videos, etc.!
Great way to share life with friends 5/5
Google is a great way to video conference and share photos and web links with family and friends.
Hangouts is Pretty Good 4/5
I think it’s a pretty good app, although the profile pictures are not accurate. For example, my friend changed hers to a cat, but on this app, it was still a bunny, her old picture. If you could improve this accuracy, that would be great! Thank you!!!
Are you buying an app to communicate? Come look at this review 4/5
I love this app, you can easily text, send cute stickers, and recieve notifications daily. But you were able to call, not any more. Now you only call one person you can’t call in group chats.. but if you want to call in group chats you click the call button and it will give you a google meet link instantly! That’s why I love it so much ❤️ I totally recommend this app.
Links, stickers, notifs, texting,
Glitches while calling
Why won’t it work 2/5
By Im sad and angry😥😓😡
I put my Gmail in and made ire everything was correct it said at the bottom when I entered my email it said unable to add email
A great idea, but run by Google 2/5
This app started out with a brilliant execution of merging SMS and Hangouts messages in the same thread. On top of that, you could video call people. Over time the video was neglected and a new app, Duo, came out to replace its purpose. Then they removed the SMS functionality and then recently completely removed the video call feature. It was an amazing cross platform and cross device messaging system and then Google abandoned it until it slowly faded away.
Wont let me sign in
This app is the best! 5/5
I wasn’t really able to message my friends before because I don’t have iMessages but Google Hangouts was the perfect platform that was secure and allowed me to message and “Hangout” with my friends online during quarantine. I recommend it for everyone. :)
Good app 5/5
Not the best app but a good app.
Google hangouts 5/5
By well what to do now
I like hangouts it’s pretty cool app to use to talk to new people.
Google meet 3/5
I hate how we have to send a link to vc there was nothing wrong with the previous one, pls remove this update
Good app to have to get in touch with all your friends and even meet new ones !
How’s Hangouts? 4/5
Hangouts is a fun way to talk with friends and family especially during quarantine. The only problem is that you can’t chat during a hangouts call.
