"Let's Hangout!"

Reviewed by / Aug 08, 2014

Talk to your friends and change your status if you don't wish to be bothered

Hangouts, which replaces Google Talk is an application from Google that allows you to chat and video message your Google contacts. The interface is very easy to use and pretty simple in design.

In order to use it, you just need to select the contact you want to talk to and begin a conversation: you don't need your friends to be connected, they'll just receive the message later. And don't forget you can also create group chats, see when people are typing and whenever they've seen your message.

You can use Hangouts in the computer and your mobile device, changing your status whenever you're busy or don't want to talk to anybody.

Google Inc. is the developer of Hangouts, an application that allows you to message your contacts and friends easily and quickly.

    Anything & everything lags like crazy. Uses a lot of RAM. Seems like if hangouts wasn't trying to do so much stuff and would just be an app for MESSAGING and drop all the other crap it might run pretty decent. Cut the fat and just do messages, make the other "features" add-ons / plugins that are optional for each user. Do this and I'll give 5 stars.

    Someone broke something, I've seen others with the same issue. Cannot copy a number in to create a new text. Click to search for a contact, type in the number, hit enter, nothing happens.

    I do not get notifications until an hour plus later. Will be uninstalling until this is fixed..

    Why can't I copy the number of the unknown person that texted me without first saving them as a contact?
