Well, Google Hangouts is for you. Here is the full review of the app.

What Google Hangouts Is

Hangouts is among the best text messaging and video calling apps around. The Google Android and iOS messaging tool allows for group chats of up to 150 members. You also get to say more through your status message which you can attach pictures, animated GIFs, emoji, and stickers. Moreover, you can convert any of your conversations into a group video call that can accommodate up to ten friends. The feature I find more interesting is the fact that I can connect my Google Voice account for voicemail, SMS, and phone number integration.

You may get the app for free, and there are no in-app purchases. The latest version brings with it lots of enhancements and bug fixes, so update the app for better user experience. The app scores a 9/10 for its useful features.


Google Hangouts iOS and Android mobile app has a user-friendly interface that is simple and straightforward, making it ideal for its text and voice call role. The layout also makes it easy for me to master my controls and find my way around the Google Play app for my Android device. My friends with iOS version from App Store had the same experience. This simplicity makes it ideal for this type of mobile applications. For the user-friendly interface, I award it a 9/10.

Performance and Usability

If you have something to say about this app and make own review – write me.

If you love a touch-and-go kind of communication, then this app is your best bet. Hangout allows for flawless chatting and video calls. Additionally, the ability to attach files makes it essential for official use. The quality of video calls can be improved, but it gives a good value. Note that it comes integrated into your Google account and doesn’t have any lags. On usability and performance, it deserves a 9/10.

Cross-platform Use

Google Hangout is compatible with the two operating systems. The app works with Android version above 4.1, iOS 9.0 and over and is compatible with iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone. For compatibility, it gets a 9/10.


Google Hangouts app for all Android devices and iOS gadgets is generally great. The drawbacks are relatively less substantial compared to the benefits. What’s more, it’s previously integrated into your Gmail account. So you’re already ahead. I have used the leading app for most of my online communication, and I would recommend it.

  • Google Hangout is already integrated into Google +;
  • The interface is user-friendly;
  • The design is appealing.


  • It is linked directly to your Google +; this might be bad for kids who might join unsafe groups on Google +;
  • The mobile app doesn’t have some features available on the web for example status of your recipients;
  • The sound and video call quality is poorer compared to Skype.
