Google Hangouts Review

Google Hangouts reviewerJovana on October 15th 2018 at 8:46pm

About

In the sea of chatting apps, only a couple of them stands out. Competition is huge, so every app has to have something unique. We will go through features of Google Hangouts to see what specialty it has.

Features

Use smiles if you want your messages to look nice and funny. Send GIFs to express your feelings. There are a lot of smiles, typically with Android look. Basically, what is WhatsApp to iOS, Google Hangouts are to Android. 

Want to chat with a couple of friends at the same time? Group chat is the best option! Add more participants to chat and start the conversation. Make plans together at any time.  

There is a green dot at contact picture which means that person is currently online. 

Voice call hangouts platform is associated with Google Voice. The voice call can be paid. It depends if you are using it as an app or associated with Google voice. If you use it as Google voice dialer, then your call will be paid in lower rates than the usual phone call. But, if you are living in the USA you can make free calls with the most phone numbers. 

Video call can include up to 10 people at the same time, or 25 with a paid account. It’s very easy to start. Tap in the left corner video recorder and call friend/friends. While you are chatting in video call adjust the volume, microphone, and other things. Wonderful thing especially for meetings and seeing family across the ocean. Similar as with other apps like Viber and WhatsApp. 

How to draw?

The coolest option is that you can draw an image right from the chat. You don’t have to open another app to draw something or write with a pen, just tap “pencil” in the typing bar section. When you are finished drawing, edit your picture. If you don’t feel like drawing, take a picture and send it to a friend.

What is it for?

Google Hangouts comes both as a mobile app and computer software. Computer software is useful for business, online meetings, and direct downloading pictures or videos. Add it as a feature in Google Chrome and easily chat with your friends. It is integrated with Google + and Gmail. Arrange the meeting and start video call about important stuff.

There is an option for streaming live, it is called “Hangouts on Air”. Your stream can go right away on your Google + account.

Connect Google Hangouts account with other devices. Your phone, computer even tablet can be sync with one account and you don’t have to miss any message or call. Continue chatting on your phone where you left a couple of minutes ago on the computer. 

Imperfections

There are some free calls. Video call can’t include more than 10 people for free. For including more contact in video call you will have to pay. You have to have Google + account to be a part of Hangouts. 

Conclusion

Google Hangouts is one of the most downloaded apps. Perhaps, this app comes built-in Android devices. Google Hangouts has a disadvantage – some calls might be paid. With other apps, you will need just access to the Internet and all calls and messages are free! Interesting app Google offered to their users.

My personal advice for the app, which can fill your business needs, isn’t Google Hangouts, it is Skype.
