"Let's hangout!"

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, which makes it kind of serious.

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. However, there are better options right now in the market and the interface is not that impressive.

    The one and only gchat turned into an all encompassing fully featured messenger client. Everyone needs this app.
