Google Chat Comments & Reviews 2023

- (RESOLVED) Read receipt avatar has been removed for the IOS Google Chat App

Per Google, in a 1:1 message, a small avatar of the person you chat with appears to the right of the last message they read. You can’t turn these read receipts on or off. This is no longer the case for the Google Chat App on IOS devices. During one of your most recent updates, the small avatars were removed from Chat so we can no longer tell when our messages are read. This issue has been shared by others but I’m also posting in hopes that it will be addressed sooner rather than later since you introduced the issue as part of a recent update. (THIS HAS NOW BEEN RESOLVED!!)

- Disappointing after Hangouts

Google Chat added the ability to have rooms where specific topic threads can be created. That’s really nice and a feature we were hoping for coming from Hangouts. Unfortunately, that’s about where the improvements end. Google Chat is at its best on the mobile app, but if you’re using it regularly, across mobile and in the desktop chrome extension, you’ll quickly see the questionable choices made by the developers. I used Hangouts and now use Chat in a professional environment, for more casual short form comms, and it’s clear after 6 weeks of heavy use that Chat wasn’t designed for anything more than light usage. It’s completely unwieldy with more than 20 active conversations. The alphabetical sorting of conversations means hunting down the person you were just talking to. The conversations are spaced relatively far apart and take up way too much screen real estate. The color scheme is blindingly bright. Et cetera. If you’re only using the phone app and only for chatting with a limited number of friends socially, which is clearly the use case they have decided to laser focus on, you’ll be fine with it. If you’re on the mobile app only, ok. If you’re hoping to do more with it, you should look elsewhere for a more thoughtfully designed, and scalable, communication method.

- A Google straight jacket

Once again, I’m waiting a ridiculous amount of time for a friend’s video to upload in Google Chat so I can watch it. I’m so tired of this nonsensical app that I have to say something. Here are all the problems I’ve encountered: - Can’t share files unless they’re in Google Drive (Google trying to limit you to using their products) - Videos are uploaded when you share them, which means it takes FOREVER. Hangouts shared videos right away, so I know they don’t have to do it like this. - Why on earth does it keep a copy of every link or image I send in the chat text box? Why would I want that when it’s right there as the last thing I sent? I hate having to delete it just to continue the conversation. - Separation of individuals and “rooms” confused everyone in my family (we use this as our primary communication). I’m used to it, but toggling back and forth to figure out where the new message is is still a nuisance. - WTAF the computer app isn’t a standalone app! You have to have Gmail open in Chrome to be able to use it even though you have to install it separately. Again, Google trying to keep you tethered to their products. There’s really almost nothing that’s an improvement here. Yes, you can react with emojis, and my mom no longer accidentally calls me when she leaves the chat open on her phone. But the rest of it is so annoying.

- This has been most people challenge on here

Google chat here, seems a bit complicated as compared to that of hangouts, I said this because, there’s not difference in the chat when you’re chatting with a friend or a family member… unlike hangouts, senders text is always at right and receivers text is always at left, that alone make it simple for you to understand your conversation easier, but here’s the case, google chat normally has the two so close to each other and also on one part of the chat surface. Another view to your app so far, I don’t know if others might’ve also realized that as well. The features “block and report” , that should be two things because they’re of different meanings, so it shouldn’t play a single role when you tap on it. For example, I want to block someone for a while, not permanently, but immediately I tap on that feature “block and report”, the person’s gmail is been taken out of google and can’t be found again to replace. Unlike messenger or any other with similar features , you can block someone and unblock to chat with that same person and can also report that person if you find that person ain’t the person you wanted or if that person is trying to scam you…. You guys really need to work on that, either than that, recommend your app as the best app ever.

- The least user friendly invention since the square wheel

1. It separates one-on-one conversations and group chat rooms into two different sections, so you’re constantly switching back and forth to check on everything. 2. All wording is on one side of the screen, unlike a normal texting chat design (like discord) — while some might be used to this it can get seriously confusing, and there’s no way to personalize it to make it easier to read. Not only that, all wording is formatted in rows, not in text bubbles. This can make comments and messages blur together and get confusing if you aren’t used to that kind of messaging. In summary, hangouts is far more manageable and user friendly, and personally I think that chats should have merged with hangouts so that we could get the best of both worlds, instead if all of us being shoved into this circus of a site. Honestly, the only good thing I could find about chats that was nice was the dark mode (something google hangouts doesn’t have.) This is a big switch for a lot of hangouts users, and I wish that they would make it more manageable so that we could personalize it better. I’m sure in time I’ll get used to it, but I do think that this transition could have panned out better.

- I can’t stand it

I can’t stand how both participants of a conversation are on the left side, not on alternate sides and colored in different colors so they can be differentiated like in Hangouts and other traditional messaging apps. I can’t stand that the status is only “active” or “away”. In Hangouts you were able to tell if a participant was active in the last 15 minutes or 2 days or a week for example or you could turn the status off. You could also see if your messages were read. Also every time I leave a chat and close the app, when I re-launch the app my most active conversation has disappeared and I have to re-add the person I was chatting with. This is so annoying!! And I can’t stand that I’m being forced to use this crap app. I’m seriously thinking of deleting this app its that irksome. Plus, I’m looking through other reviews and I’ve seen as far back as a year ago, the same concerns being brought up by users and obviously they haven’t been addressed which means Google chat developers are not taking these concerns into consideration to make updates so that’s a hard no for me. I’ll be looking into other ways to communicate with family and friends.

- It’s Alright

I just switched over to Google Chat from Google Hangouts and let me say, it’s different. First, I am not able to switch out of dark mode which for me, is unnecessary and annoying. I am not a fan of my screen being dark, but I guess it is something that I will have to get used to. Second, when talking with someone your text and their’s both appear on the same side of the chat which makes it more complicated to figure out what they said and when. Third, sending videos and pictures take up a lot of time. The loading process is very time consuming and it causes a pause in your conversation and confusing as to why you aren’t responding. The desktop version is great, but the mobile adaptation just isn’t cutting it for me. I intend on using this app heavily but with the way it’s going so far, it will take a lot of getting used to. Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate the different functions that have been added, but it just isn’t the same.


I don’t see any similarities between this app and hangout and to make it worse you take out the voice call option and now forcing everyone to use Google chat☹️☹️ that’s so ridiculous… All of my colleagues at work who use hangout said they don’t like Google chat and it’s all because of these voice call, that would definitely be a plus and make Google chat less stressful than it already is.. I can’t see how many minutes my friends where online anymore, just active and away Mehn that’s not cool you guys really have to reconsider your option or think about putting hangout back on here for everyone and not force us to use something because you guys think it’s nicer without considering every other persons opinion and this is a market place but you treat your customers like we don’t have opinions.. please take your time to understand my review I really love Google apps and I want hangout app back or put the voice call option on Google chat please thank you guys.. we are family I hope my opinion matters, LOVE

- It isn’t that bad!

Ok, setting aside the lack of audio/video call features, I actually prefer Google chat over Google hangouts for several reasons. (1) there’s dark mode, (2) the interface is smooth, (3) you can react to messages with emojis, (4) I can actually see everyone’s profile pictures. Is it ripping off discord a bit? Yeah, but I don’t mind. The only downside for me is that you can’t switch between accounts easily, or see all your contacts (unless you have an open chat with them). But overall it works fine, and it feels much better than hangouts. Hangouts has been going downhill for a while (like mentioned earlier, I can barely see anyone’s profile pics + no dark mode). And the calls in hangouts never had good connectivity. I know this wasn’t a “me” problem because my friends also had similar issues. So overall, I definitely recommend Google Chat as a replacement for Hangouts, especially if you mostly text!

- I don’t really like it

Hello, I wasn’t too happy to see that I would be having to switch apps but I had no other choice. My friend and I used google hangouts as one of our only ways to communicate with each other due to certain circumstances she’s in. When I switched to google chat I thought it was very confusing. The messages are all on the same side. The feature I hate the most is the fact it won’t let me call anybody..? For some reason the option to call someone is disabled and I have no idea how to fix it, I think its very inconvenient. Im a mobile user so I have no idea if it’s different on computer but I do not have access to a computer and I feel that is not fair to have certain limitations on mobile. I also find it annoying that the messages they send are also linked to my gmail. So when they send a message, I also get a notification that pops up every time from my gmail inbox, I think there should be a feature that allows you to disconnect the notifications from your inbox. (or connect whenever you choose).

- I want this hangouts feature please

I doubt that this will work but I’m giving it a try. Me and my friend group always have used hangouts and it was amazing and google chat is more like a productive “work chat” app. If there is anyway this message can be seen by one of the Devs who works on this it would be amazing but my friends and I really want the feature that hangouts has that shows who has read the messages. Whether it could be an option a space manager could toggle or just active all the time. It would be so useful to tell who has been active and reading the chats. Thank you (In a direct message I have noticed it does show you when the person has read a message and what the last message they read was but I’m talking about adding this feature to the Spaces/Group Chats. Maybe it could be added like a space manager could toggle the feature since I’m sure not everyone would like to have it active all the time but it would be awesome just like in hangouts)

- It’s fine, I guess?

Admittedly, I’m aggravated about being pushed to switch from hangouts, and that’s going to affect my view of this app, but dear god why can’t I put group chats and DMs in the same tab? Switching back and forth is frustrating and confusing. It’s also hard to tell who’s said what, and implementing literally any system for that would make a huge difference. On a less important note, I’d like to be able to assign a photo to a group chat so the icon isn’t just a letter (if there is a way to do this, I couldn’t find it, and I Looked). On the plus side, having the docs and sheets we’ve shared in a tab for group chats is really cool (I’d love to be able to see photos, too, as well as have this option for DMs), it infinitely easier to search than hangouts was, and there is dark mode integration. Overall, it’s fine, I guess? It feels very similar to Microsoft Teams, which is to say not ideal for a casual messaging app but probably a good option for work.

- Desktop? Great! Mobile? Not so great

Hey, this is someone who has used Hangouts VERY often. When I heard things were moving to Chat, I didn’t mind. On desktop, it was great. I really liked the reactions and the upgrade on statuses, that was cool. But on mobile? Sheeesh, not so good. There’s this weird glitch where I can’t send videos, even when they’re relatively short, and I can’t hardly send photos either! You can’t send multiples at once like you did on HG, and there’s no way to monitor if they’re sending or not. You hit send and you’re just shown the chat- you don’t see the picture sending or anything and its kind of annoying. Also, there seems to be a lag in statuses. Me and my friend had both set ourselves as active (both using chat) yet to each other, we showed as away. Yet my other friend (me using chat, him using hangouts) appeared as active. 🤨 If you’re going to do a transfer from HG to Chat, could you have at least ACTUALLY made Chat better?

- It’s great but...

I have been using Google Hangouts for years now to communicate with my friends who don’t have phones to talk with. I love the new interface they have added for Google Chat. But I have a few issues with the app. (1) In group chats or rooms you can’t see if anybody has seen your message or not. This isn’t something that would be a life changer but it would be nice to have. (2)One of the features that Hangouts offered was the icon features. In Hangouts, if your friend were to be on your chat with them, their icon would be visible. If they went off of the chat their icon would fade a slight bit. I would also like this feature just because it helps me tell of their actually online. (3) When somebody goes offline from Hangouts it takes 15 minutes for Chat to get the I formation that they went offline. This is a big thing that needs to be worked on.

- Upgrade

I don’t see any similarities between this app and hangout and to make it worse you take out the voice call option and now forcing everyone to use Google chat☹️☹️ that’s so ridiculous… All of my colleagues at work who use hangout said they don’t like Google chat and it’s all because of these voice call, that would definitely be a plus and make Google chat less stressful than it already is.. I can’t see how many minutes my friends where online anymore, just active and away Mehn that’s not cool you guys really have to reconsider your option or think about putting hangout back on here for everyone and not force us to use something because you guys think it’s nicer without considering every other persons opinion and this is a market place but you treat your customers like we don’t have opinions.. please take your time to understand my review I really love Google apps and I want hangout app back or put the voice call option on Google chat please thank you guys.. we are family I hope my opinion matters, LOVE

- Hangouts was better

I was told to switch to google chat a while back but I didn’t force me but I was forced to switch sometime last month and let me tell you it just isn’t as good as hangouts when I got to the app and I am messaging my friend and we decide we want to call well the call button is gone so I can’t even call him without going over to gmail and calling him from there. You can access it from gmail and can only call from gmail so you should only have gmail at that point. I also miss when you could group call instead of having to make a meet don’t get me wrong a meet isn’t bad but it just takes less time to just group call. But it is still ok if you add the call button I would give you 5 stars and it’s a plus if you bring back the group calls. Thank you for listening.

- This app is not for social chats

I liked Hangouts. I don’t know why they are discontinuing it! At least you can keep your chats and history though. This app is more on the professional side with documents, meetings, and projects that is good, don’t get me wrong. However, I used Hangouts for social chats so those things aren’t that useful. What is really bothering me is that there isn’t chat bubbles so everything is squished together and you can’t tell who said what. When I sent a picture, I sent it like 3 times on accident because it kept on saying the message failed to send. Also, you can’t tell if the other people in the “chat space” read the messages like it did in Hangouts. They also removed the stickers! Although this app is good for professional chats and business meetings, it wasn’t as good as Hangouts was for social group chats.

- Hangouts was better

Hello there, let me start this by first saying that I haven’t used gchat all that much so maybe I’m not quite used to all it’s features yet but I think no matter what my point will stand: hangouts was better. I can’t frankly think of a reason why google would take something that had been used for so long and was very effective and completely change it, especially now when people are relying on online chatting platforms even more. I have used hangouts for 6 years and have never had any complaint with them, my school used it profusely for contact between teachers and students (as well as between students for group projects and clubs). Relating to this, a club I am a part of that heavily relied on hangouts as a way to communicate meeting times and important information is now struggling to figure out how to use gchat the same way - again, we haven’t used gchat that much so maybe we’re missing an important feature, but if it was truly that important it should have been more obvious to know.

- Disappointing transition from Hangouts

I know my personal 2 cents won’t matter much to Google, and will honestly seem silly to most; but… Where are the stickers??! That one bit of personalization made Hangouts so comfortable and warm for emotional expression in personal conversations. Yes, of course there are universal emojis and Apple memojis… but the stickers (especially the bunny and cat) are just perfect and ADORABLE. Why would you take those away? It seems like it would be such a simple feature to carry over. For this reason alone, I will hang on to Hangouts until its dying breath. Conversations just aren’t the same without them. For what it’s worth the discussion UI itself isn’t all that personable, either. Chat was definitely intended for a more business, streamlined discussion. Hangouts’ casual comfiness of the alternating bubbles per sender/recipient will certainly be missed.

- Not as good as Hangout for chatting with friends

I switched from Google Hangouts to Google Chat for about a week, and now have switched back. Chat separates group from individual convos in different tabs. I only chat with a small group for friends and it was nice to have everything in the side bar with my most recent convo at the top and open. In chat every time I open it I have to do 2-3 extra steps to get to my group chat which is what I use most. It’s annoying and I don’t like it. Also uploading pics and videos is easier and more intuitive in Hangouts than Chat. For me Hangouts is a great app for chatting with friends individually and in small groups. Google Chat seems more tuned to business use. Don’t try to make it an all in one chat app, it will only be bad at many things instead of good at a few. *I have deleted this app and will be using Hangouts until forced to switch.

- Only giving a 1 bc I can’t give a 0

I deeply miss Google hangouts. The video quality was great, always adjusted to strength of wifi & prioritized everything working over everything being the highest quality which made it the best for talking to friends and family across the world. The UI on mobile was super easy to use for me and my whole family which includes a lot of older folks. I used to be able to make international calls on it for free of pretty cheap when the app was new which now I’m pretty sure you can’t do at all now. It was superior to any other video call platform I ever used and the stickers and ability to mess around on each other’s portraits were how I bonded over a distance. Now that’s gone and a new thing I have to look for. Google meet already exists for companies, I don’t understand why chat also has to be directed towards those types of people and has to take over hangouts.

- Liked Hangouts Better

The function of the app is fine, but I found the chat layout of Hangouts to be much better than what this currently has. (At least make it match the way chats currently appear on desktop.) There’s no immediate obvious visual differentiation between messages you send and messages you receive, which I find annoying and visually clunky. Other messaging apps like iMessage and Telegram distinguish your sent messages by putting them on the right of the screen and tinting them a different color. This app doesn’t do that. It also separates each message you send by your name, which is mildly irritating if you’re sending a series of pictures. I would love to see an update of the app’s appearance to bring it up to speed with other messaging apps, including the legacy Hangouts app.

- Need More Work: Clunky App

The app is clunky when trying to send pics. There is a see delayed repsonse time from when you upload a picture. The send button starts to spin like it is thinking if it should upload your pic. When the send button is available after the spinning. Then you're able to send the pic. After 3-4 minutes, that's when you find out if your picture has sent or not. It doesn't show you trying to send the pic as a preview in the chat thread like it would for hangouts to let you know that is trying to send but can't for unforseen reasons. Instead, the person on the other end of the chat asks if you ever going to send the pic. When looking on my end, after 7 minutes has passed, then I receive a small message asking if I want to resend or delete. This need to be fixed. It's frustrating and my friends and family are experiencing the same issues.

- Google Hangouts

I don’t like it because it is more complicated then using regular Hangouts from before. Another reason I don’t like too much of peoples personal information being shared that should not be shared like phone numbers, addresses, date of birth, personal family pictures, and many more personal information that should never be shared. If they could only make it simple and keeping everything personal and private then I have no problem in using it. Thank you for allowing me to share my point of view. Sincerely yours, BM.

- Constantly Changing for the Worse

Google Chat is lackluster compared to previous iterations of Google communication tools, and here's why: 1) Chat can only send ONE picture at a time and there is significant lag before your client updates to display that you've sent a picture, so multiple repeat pictures are common in threads because you don't know if it actually sent. 2) Video calls are seriously stupid. You send a "Google Meet" link into the thread, which other users have to click to join a separate call. This is absolutely senseless compared to the incredible ease we had with Hangouts. Members of my family have missed out on precious moments and announcements because of this. 3) No SMS integration. 4) gifs are hit or miss and some device clients only play the gif once. 5) Not P2P encrypted. Pretty sure Allo had all of this and more, and it worked beautifully, until it was deprecated in favor of trash like this. Why in the world do we keep going backwards!?! I don't know why Google feels the need to make their user base constantly change apps to keep up with basic communication functionality. From Hangouts to Allo to Hangouts to Duo to Hangouts to Chat. I'd just like a stable and secure P2P encrypted application to use where I can video chat, send pictures (yeah, that’s multiple pictures AT ONCE), and text.

- Why google, why.

Google hangouts was such a good app. The only problem was the scammers and suspicious accounts. Hangouts was easy to use, you didn’t have to send a “meeting link” (copying zoom much?), you could see when people are active, when they were LAST active, and you could see if they had seen your messages or not (for some reason the chat section of the gmail app has this, the app does not. Sloppy organization.) Google chat has none of these. It also does not have stickers. Furthermore, the design of the app is boring and meaningless. It’s basically just a black and white screen with slots for people. The notification sound is boring and not even close to comparing with the iconic hangouts sounds. This app is bad in design and function. It’s like hangout’s incompetent second cousin that everyone hates. Google, I’m disappointed. If you have any intelligence left, bring hangouts back.

- A big convoluted

It’s nice to be able to search in this app, as opposed to Hangouts, but that’s where the pros end for me so far. The concept of chats vs spaces seems unnecessary and is what convolutes the app. I tried to give a name to a group chat as a space, but realized it’s then completely separate from chat threads (takes the whole history and converts it to a “space”), it doesn’t show up in the chats page, and searching in chats does not find matches in spaces. I decided I wanted to revert the (long) conversation history back to a chat thread but apparently that is impossible. I’ve also found multiple chat threads that include the same people, and sharing to Chats from other apps is very buggy. It was a much better user experience in Hangouts, with the exception of the search feature.

- An insult to anyone naive enough to download this app.

It is frankly astonishing how bad this app is. In general, it is worse in every way compared to the competition.... but specifically on iPad it reaches a new level of horrendous. It *literally* is worse than Hangouts was on iPad, and Hangouts on iPad was already abysmal. There is not only no slide-over support, nor side-by-side support, but the interface itself is just the blown up phone interface. It is honestly incredible anyone at Google even allowed something like this to be released ever, let alone while they are constantly badgering their user base to switch to it. Congrats are in order to the Google Chat team. You have made me switch chat platforms away from google for the first time since the _original_ "GChat" from like 2006. Well done on finding new lows on what I already thought was a rock-bottom of user interface design.

- An App the Borg Would Love

Wow, you know Google 'Chat' is a particularly characterless and sterile environment, with no customizable elements at all, that I can see. Doesn’t even have 'your' text on one side and 'mine' on the other, just one long column of text scrolling down the left side. Clearly an app that wants you to think "I am a soulless tool designed for team collaboration. Individuality is not productive. Design elements do not benefit the Collective. Colors distract from the Process. Expression must be solely in the Service of the Hive. Return to your Work." This is not an app designed for chatting with friends and family. Those things have no value. They do not serve the Collective. Your personal data has been collected, and will be reported to Google Authorities with the content of this negative review. Your existence on the Internet will be terminated.

- WHO is writing these reviews that give this GARBAGE more than 2 stars?

Google is HISTORICALLY inept at chat, and they've done it again. They had a pretty decent chat app (Hangouts) and killed it, to be replaced with a gangrenous "chat function" sewed onto their new Frankenstein (Google Workplace) that wants to be Slack but isn't, wants to be Zoom but isn't, wants to be an office suite but isnt Microsoft 365. Google, WHY? You're a RICH company. Surely your top hundred developers are among the top 500 in the world. Why are your best developers NEVER in charge of a project? Because you don't know WHICH of your developers are the GOOD ones? Using the Chat function is so obtuse, that it reminds me of those "helpful" electric window buttons that insist on rolling all the way UP, or rolling all the way DOWN. Getting it to stop where you want it requires a miracle. My God this is an ugly duckling of a chat app. Hangouts wasn't actually very good (because it was abandoned before it got a change to mature), but at least it wasn't a ToFurkey or a TurDucken, and it didn't make the user ANGRY. Chat ONLY works well, and cleanly, when EVERYTHING that isn't chat-oriented, ISN'T THERE. That means that all of its UI design elements will be chosen without ANY regard to Google Workspace functions. Make a chat into a CHAT.

- Latest update is awful

The latest update makes it basically unusable on iOS. I expect Google has plenty of IT department customers to test it - anyone already using Google Apps who was desperate enough to save money would be willing to switch over since it's part of Google Apps. Chat was released broken and totally unfinished. That being said, Hangouts Chat has slowly gotten progressively better. And it's interesting to see the features they prioritize. They aren't trying to match feature parity with Teams or Slack, they're doing their own thing. But this latest app update is horrible. It's harder to see what's unread and what's not. And reading a message won't actually mark it as read most of the time. I've moved away from using my phone for chat and now just miss work messages. This update has made it much harder to communicate at work and much harder to work from home.

- Works! (mobile+5, browser -5 yet) see 6.

1. :D :-D works and does NOT change to smilie. AWESOME because it reflects me speaking to someone who is not like me, but is a dear friend. 2. Uploading photo did not take a lot of time at all. 3. It is easy to see who said what. Those who can’t, simply hate change because there is a WHOLE LINE of white space between people speaking! 4. Longer text do work, but have not checked Nanowrimo type work sending. I only have 10 lines in my trial. Friend and I used to send “what we wrote during word wars” back and forth. These would be around 2000 words. 5. No longer have to wait and wait and wait for Archived Messages to load up as a thing to select. I never archive messages anyway. 6. Browser: In browser I still need to be able to POP CHAT OUT. So still trying to figure this out. I need to look at chat while discussing email sometimes but chat covers email which is NOT ADA compliant! Too hard to discuss email with brain damage. Having phone app up AND email on 2 different devices is stupid as a work around! Thank you!

- The Worst!!

Google should be positively ashamed of themselves! This is the worst chat app I have ever used. They took away hangouts and gave us chat which has significantly less functionality. You can’t even attach multiple photos at one time! What year is this, 2010!? Trying to get to attach anything or any other feature requires hitting small little icons that are easy to mess and layers deep. Trying to use the text box and move your cursor around inevitably ends up hitting the emoji icon and bringing up that screen. There is no distinction in terms of who is talking so trying to look through the conversation becomes quite challenging and hard on the eyes. There is no excuse at this point in time for a chat app to be this bad compared to all others. I have been using Hangouts since it started 15 or so years ago and now they lost me.

- Lifelong Google Chatter is fed up - Backwards move

I’ve been using Google Messaging apps for most of my entire life, much to the defiance (and laughter) of my friend groups - Gchat & Hangouts were good tools, I chose them over more popular ones like WhatsApp & FB messenger. This new “Google Chat” is a slap & spit (simultaneously) to the face of those - Google has gone BACKWARDS with this new useless iteration of its messaging app. The interface is more complicated, I can’t tell if my message has been clearly read or if I even sent it (all msgs are on the same side), pictures & videos take much longer to send, and I do NOT need a section for “Files & Tasks” - who asked for this app? Absolutely nobody… For the first time I will be not using this Google app - bring back Hangouts or significantly change this, look at all the negative recent 1-star reviews 🚮


I used to love using Google Hangouts to chat with my boyfriend daily while he is overseas working. But, now I can not even chat with him without either of us running into issues. So, tell me Google, WHY, why are you killing off an app in the middle of a global pandemic that everyone but you seemed to like? Why take away everything that everyone liked about your app and turn it into this? I HATE this app! You guys made an internal use only app public, and it shows. Want to get rid of your chat app? Then get rid of this garbage too! Want to join Yahoo and MSN? Then keep it up. We the users of your app, want OUR features back, and we DEMAND to have a choice as to rather we use this app or Google Hangouts which you keep refusing to allow us to use. See your app in the digital trash bin Google, right where it belongs.

- Still waiting…

I know you’ve made this for businesses. Yes, it is seamless and wonderful for people that are using this for their business for their offices and that since yes it’s wonderful. I use it to reach out to family. So I would still like to get back the stickers we used in Hangouts. I would also love if maybe you added more stickers or maybe different stickers if this app is supposed to be for everyone initiative also be user-friendly for those that use it for their families I use it to contact family that is away and I can’t go visit because of Covid. I use it to talk to my fiancé overseas so they said it should be user-friendly not only for businesses but for the average Joe.

- Worse

Worse in every way than Hangouts. Adding reactions to individual messages is nice but not a feature anyone asked for. Messages don’t always send if you exit the app too quickly. Notifications are unreliable. Stickers are gone. Overall just another step in Google’s consolidation of everything (built-in compatibility with Mail, Drive, Calendar, Meetings) but Hangouts had more personality AND worked better. I get that not many people still used it, typically favoring iOS messaging or Discord, but I might prefer switching to those rather than this inferior replacement. It might have gotten three stars on its own merits but the fact that it axed Hangouts on its way in loses it two of them. I don’t foresee this being useful outside of a work context, in which case I’d probably still prefer email.

- Hangouts was better

This app feels less streamlined and straightforward than hangouts. It always takes 2-3 taps to switch between messages or perform any action which used to feel smooth and immediate in the hangouts app. Multitasking between accounts, spaces, and messages is a chore. Hangouts was great. I was able to get my tech illiterate 76 year old mother to use hangouts for video calling and it worked great. After we were forced to switch to this app, she found video calling "rooms" concept incomprehensible. I got her on Facebook messenger instead, which is far more straightforward to use and it works much better for our simple use case. I'm not really sure whose needs the Google app is designed to fulfill but it seems like a step backwards in usability.

- I Miss Hangouts

To start off, I got this app before because my friend didn’t have a phone number and it was great for texting and calling for the duration that it was available. I’m not saying the app is horrible, the features are amazing; threads, formatting, status, it’s amazing. It’s the app itself I’m not too happy with. First of all, in hangouts I could see all my groups and contacts in one place and I could name group chats which you can no longer do. Second of all, it doesn’t just let you switch to dark theme as the light theme is really a pain. And lastly, the app was so much easier to use before, there weren’t all these extra complications, hangouts was ideal.. this wasn’t.

- Honestly this is bad. I miss hangouts.

Ive been using hangouts for 3 years and I accidentally deleted it. So, I was forced to download google chat. After hearing my friends say how awful it was, I was weary. But, they were right. It’s very hard to navigate, I can’t see other peoples statuses, I can’t change my profile picture, I can’t change it from light mode to dark mode, I can’t directly audio/meet my friends, all the chat on one side is just horrible on the eyes, and it’s very hard to send pictures and videos. It takes upwards of 5 minutes to send one picture let alone more. It will only let you send one picture at a time and not a couple like any normal app would. However, I use hangouts to talk to friends, I guess it would be fine if I used it for business? But I miss hangouts.

- It was better (Please read Google!)

I really like the ease of use and look of Google more than hangouts. But the fact that you can’t even make a call through chat is kinda sad. Google turned it into a business thing instead of a way to connect with loved ones. Now the only way you can make a call is trough a Google Meet. So Now someone has to check their phone to see the link instead of hearing it ring. It’s just so much less efficient and frustrating. Google, if your reading this review… Please add calling!! It makes no sense why they would remove it.

- Chat is a cool idea but has many downfalls

Some of the biggest things I don’t like about chat is that the rooms and chats are separated making it really hard to switch back and forth, and I don’t like the wording and text being on one side Constantly confusing me on who is texting. Also to video call you have to use google meet unlike the regular built in video call option on hangouts because no one actually knows if you are getting a call because it is a meeting link and not a call. Otherwise it isn’t the worst but those thing make me not want to use it. If any of this could be changed in the future I would really enjoy chat.

- Works for the Most Part, Missing Key Features

I used hangouts a lot prior to switching to this new version. For the most part, I’m getting the same functionality I did with Hangouts. I do like the addition of being able to link with Google Suite content better. However, because the primary purpose of my use of this app is to schedule meetings, I really miss read receipts. There is no way to tell who is caught up in a group conversation anymore. This was a super helpful feature in Hangouts (when it was accurate) and I miss it a ton. If anyone else is in the same boat, we should send feedback through their system to see if the developers will add it back in.

- I was excited that google chat was an easy transfer from Hangouts

All my contacts and archived chats survived but I am not happy with the new platform. Finding invitations was a bit of a struggle but I found my way thru. The hardest thing to lose off Hangouts is the audio and video call functions. Sure I can use Google Duos but that goes off of your phone number. What made Hangouts better was I could make a call, video or audio, and use someone’s email instead of asking for their private number. If there are no plans to be asComparable to Hangouts if not better I see no reason to continue using this app. There are plenty other options out there. I’d preferably use Vibe over this version of Google chats. It is in need of some serious updating.

- Disappointed, Hangouts was easier and better quality

Hangouts was streamlined and very user-friendly. Google Chat feels very antiquated. It was much easier to do video chats in Hangouts. With Google chat, you have to click the video icon, then it prompts you to join the meeting, so you have to click again to get the screen up (an unnecessary extra step). The video screen is much smaller than the one in Hangouts, and there isn’t an option to make it larger. One of the worst features is that it starts an entirely new chat window, so when you’re finished meeting someone, the conversation is gone. Hangouts kept the whole chat together in one window when you were on video with someone. So disappointed, I’m searching for a different platform.

- Can’t tell if they’ve read my message

I love this app! I’ve used it for a few years even when they changed it over to google “chat”. However (and I don’t know why it stopped), but the little circle with the picture for the account of the person I’m chatting with won’t pop up anymore. So I can’t tell if the person has read my message or not. I don’t know if it’s a bug or if it was intentional to stop showing that but I really loved that the app did that in the first place. And I’d be really disappointed if it’s not coming back.

- Worse overall, better in some areas

Google’s “chat” replacement for hangouts seems to fix some critical issues. First off, it has so far eliminated the “phantom” issue with hangouts showing someone as reading a text only to refresh and find they haven’t opened the app in hours. It also seems to be snappier. However, the app is uglier, it’s harder to see when someone has read a message and it’s impossible to know if they’re typing or not, and light mode doesn’t work. So in my opinion, they’re removing features instead of fixing them. Not like the hangouts app was much better, but still an unwelcome “upgrade”.

- Just Make One App That Does ALL

Can google take some design clue from China’ Wechat? One app catch it All! Just combine Google Chat, Google Hangout, Google Meet and Google Duo into one App. One app that can Chat, audio calls, video 1:1, video group! It is confusing to try to explain to my mom why need so many different apps for similar tasks. At China, even a 70-years old know to use Wechat! It’s just one App they ever need to remember! WeChat is also Paypal, Instagram and Facebook in China. So powerful. It does pretty much everything. We can argue that is monopoly, however we can not deny it’s convenience and usability. Why can’t Google make a super app for everything!!! I understand Google intent Google Meet as a professional app with Monthly Fee. However, it would be so easy to design a mega communication App that is free for most users for simple 1:1 call and small group video call. Once a user tries to launch a call with large number of ppl, this app could prompt a message for app upgrade with monthly subscription or pay-per-use to allow large group video conference.

- Chats

1 I don’t feel like rooms should be needed. Maybe you can make it to where we can choose if we’re using the app for just chatting or if we’re using it for an actual business. If we’re just chatting then we only get chat options if we’re business we get chats and rooms? 2 I should be able to make multiple chats with just me and one other person but if I try it brings me to a chat that we already made 3 I can’t see when my friends were last active only that they are inactive and I find that unhelpful. 31/2 I feel like we should see if our friends have seen our messages in as many chats as we make for them including in rooms. I can’t tell if my friends are actually reading what I’m saying. I have sent feedback through the app but I’m just warning people what their getting into. I don’t feel like hangouts should be taken down as I’ve used it for so long and I saw no problems with it. These “upgrades” could have easily just been put into hangouts.

- Notifications keep turning off by itself

I had Hangouts for work and when they switched it wasn’t a big deal except for one thing.. Idk if it’s Apple not working with Google or what but I’d see a notification on the app itself on my Home Screen and think wait why didn’t it ping me? Well I go into the app to turn on my notifications and think its fixed…. Nope. Same thing keeps happening. The app keeps switching off my “notifications on this device” I also use it on a computer but not as much. Why does this keep happening?! I have to have this and know it’ll ping me when I get a message from my team! So frustrating! Either give me a solution or make one.

- App not suitable for iOS 12.5.6

A couple of months back, I started chatting with people like normal and then suddenly when I would click on a group chat it would say to update to the latest version. When I would click ‘update google chats’, it would open the App Store and show the update button. After I had clicked the update button it would let me know that I needed iOS 14 or later but it would let me update to the latest version available for my device. This is normal and works fine for other apps. But when I clicked the download button it would actually download and the plugin just kept popping up and never stopped unless I had clicked cancel. Like I said, this is normal for other apps and works perfectly fine with other apps. But with google chats it just doesn’t work.

- Seems to be a compatibility issue with iPads

Since your update about 4-5 weeks ago I CANNOT send any videos from my iPads in Google Chat (even ones that I have previously sent). Also, sometimes I cannot send photos either. And sometimes I can send some photos, but not others, it’s very random. I’ve been doing LOADS of experimenting to try and solve the issue, as before that I had no problems at all. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling the App, several times. Nothing has worked. Yesterday I installed Google Chat onto my iPhone and it does work there. So I can only assume now that the most recent updates are not compatible with iPads. Very annoying as they are the devices I use. Please can you work on solving this problem. *Also, I’d love the have the bubbles back… like in Hangouts, where each person’s msg was on a separate side of the screen. The way it is now gets very confusing trying to keep track of conversation. And it’s very easy to miss bits.

- Not able to upload any pictures or files

Everything works excellent and I find it very easy to talk to my friends separately and in a group chat. But for some reason when I go to send a picture I get an error message saying that the file couldn’t be uploaded. I have bee troubleshooting for awhile now. Other than that issue, this app works as smooth as anything.

- Hangouts much better, chat is horrible

I have been using google hangouts for 2 years now. It was easy to navigate, add people, voice call and video call. But now they replaced it with google chat which is horrible. In google chat you can voice and video call anyone, and it’s really hard to add someone. Very bad app too complicated to use. Please add back hangouts I am very displeased. I can’t use hangouts anymore it’s forcing me to use google chat. If you want to make this better, make it less complicated to add people and navigate, and make it that you can call people. Hangouts will always be remembered but not google chat

- Great App!

This app allowed me to talk to people all over the world. For business purposes and non-business purposes, this app was the perfect choice. I love how it always allows you to chat and there’s lots of choices, columns and it’s never crowded. It was amazing for just chatting with family and friends too! However, sometimes it did have some bugs. Sometimes the app wouldn't work and sometimes it didn’t do anything. Overall, this was an awesome app for communicating to people all over the world.

- Great app!

Google chats allows me to talk to friends easily and there isn’t much of s problem with it. It’s simple and easy to use for younger people. Many times I have accident sent something to the wrong person. Google chats does not allow me to delete any messages which is frustrating because it just stays there. Besides that it is a great app for all ages and perfect to use.

- Google Chat

I find this app more than adequate in its aspects of conducting a social conversation with anybody around the world. There a multiple Funtional options to style up the social aspect of the conversation and a great feature of having a group conversation. More than happy to recommend this application to anyone of my friends and or family or colleagues.

- Improvements needed

It would be nice to be able to send and receive gifs and not only photos and videos would actually be nice to be able to send and receive all types of pictures and videos and even voice notes as well as voice messages too, just to mention a few

- Hangout

Google Hangout is a very good platform and app to communicate workmates and even family. However, why did they remove the voice/video call on this app? They should put it back because it is still useful to many.

- Great app!

Love this app, it works great for me. I already saw the options of creating a group & the option to take myself out of a group. I have enjoyed this app a lot. This is pretty simple. Thank you. I can see why you created this app, so it can be integrated into the gmail app. Very nice as I use this within my gmail app too. 😊

- Stupid app

I’m not happy that you have closed down HANGOUTS and replaced it with this stupid App, GOOGLE CHAT….You said you can do more with it? What a load of rubbish. It’s garbage. Can’t send stickers only emojis, you can’t delete a message unless you delete the whole chat. I was just getting comfortable with Hangouts and you replaced it with thisStupid GOOGLE CHAT, I hate it, it’s for young people. Not for us oldies. C’mon Google, Get with the times and stop catering for the young at heart, think about us oldies who aren’t techno savvy. Kind regards RobGem12

- Awful compared to hangouts

Really suffocating and crowded. There’s no separation of messages, no more chat boxes with a clear idea of who has sent the message. Each new message appears on the next line with no spacing, all on the same side of the screen, and in the same colour. And any conversation/hangout that’s been given a chat name weirdly appears in a separate section of the app, compared with those that haven’t, so you have to flick back and forth between sections. It’s painfully unfriendly to use

- Missed the mark

This app looks like it was designed for office use only and forgets that people use this outside of the office. The features are so alienating and cold in appearance. Even in the office environment I’ve found that myself and a number of colleagues aren’t able to reply as swiftly because it’s harder to see when you’ve got a new message. Hangouts might have been a little clunky and old fashioned but it was more user friendly and warm.

- Finding friends you thought would not talk to you

People you find who you think would never talk to you in an actual fact are just people like my self.

- I even missed it

I started and Hangouts is ALREADY GONE. If you don’t mind, maybe bring Hangouts back to life just so I can see what it was like in the older times. The future is always approaching, but I want you to make this app run away from it.

- Eh

I kinda miss google hangouts cuz thats more easier to use plus i dont need to access my email all the time

- Not happy

Why change something good? Google chat annoys me with the repetitions of my correspondent’s last text at the top of the page, when the text itself is clearly visible. I am not at all sure it is as private as Hangouts. I have had intrusive messages on more than one occasion. Chat has been given a try but it has not lived up to the hype. Anna K.

- Group chat problems

In a group chat the images don’t open. You tap on them and is just a black screen. There is not a confirmation that the other members of the group have read the message like it is in the individual chats. Needs improvement

- Google chat

Very hard to distinguish text as they are very close to one another not the google hangout text will be in bubble like from left to right which makes reading easy. Also with group chat we can’t see you seen text. As I wondering whether this person has read text or not.

- Disappointed

I'm really disappointed being forced to move from Hangouts to Google Chat / Workspace. I used Hangouts primarily for phone calls. The Google Chat interface is confusing and the phone icon is dull, meaning I can't make a call. This is very frustrating. Not everyone wants to set up a meeting or use the video feature. Why mess with a good thing, Google?

- Google chat

I would have to say that Google Chat is very helpful to chat with the people you need or want to. This app is the same as Google hangouts.

- A backward step from hangouts

Hangouts was far easier and simpler to use and navigate than Chat especially if wanting to move from text to call to video call and back again. It doesn’t colour identify the text messages by person, therefore harder looking back. Not as easy in sharing multiple photos.

- Hmm. Today is a dark day.

Today is the last day google let me use the old- GOOD hangouts. It won’t work any more. I still hate chats It’s chat. At least give us the hang outs notification bell Very hard to find things past two years ago on chats (search field) Still getting used new chats I prefer hangouts Even the notification sound is way better on hangouts- can I change that in chat? Also- I can’t find a stand alone pc ap for chats??? I need something out side the browser…. -Let me customise the notification sound… - Bring back long status allowances it’s way too short at the moment. 😭😭😭😭😭

- Vicki8643

I enjoyed this social media app very very much. I am sure all users agree with me. Thank you so much for the wonderful services rendered.

- Google Chat

I think this app is very useable and has an easy way to communicate with friend or work colleagues.

- Still gonna use it but hangouts was better

The only problem with google chats is that it’s extremely hard to make a new chat with someone new

- Someone online

Would be good if could show when someone was last online and also be able to send larger videos without them being compressed down. I miss using hangouts

- Picture

I can’t see images which have been updated on the chat together, so I have to scroll all the way up till find the image… it would be nice that you can see all images in once like what’s up

- Bug in latest update when typing more than one line

Latest version has an issue where once you type more than one line or press return, you’re typing blind and can’t see what you’re typing until you press send Using a google workspace account g

- No Access. Cannot use this

I use Hangouts. A message came up today saying it will end soon and a link. I use the link and goes to help page with no information about this topic. Nearest I could get was about Google CHAT. I downloaded it and then am told I don’t have access to it with my account. Seems you need a corporate account. USELESS APP. DO NOT DOWNLOAD !!!

- Not as good as hangouts

You cannot see who is looking at a group chat - hangouts you could. Too hard to see who has sent you a chat. The only notification you get is ‘1 unread chat’. Too many people in the contacts list. Most of whom you have never contacted.

- Is ok

Pls add the stickers back it was soo good Also, can you put space between the text? And put one person’s text on one side and the other’s on another side? Like the hangouts format? Thanks

- Useless app !!

I’ve been forever trying to get this app to work. I’ve contacted google but they are useless like this terrible app !!! Not recommended !! I use google suite which I pay for but can’t get any help from google at all !!! They simply don’t care as they only worry making boatload of money !!! 👎

- What no delete chat function

Why no delete function on the app

- You can’t leave group chats!

I thought this app was going to be fine but then I was invited into a group chat where I can’t leave! I do not like the people that are in it and I really want to leave but I CAN’T it is VERY annoying!!!!!

- Chat is great, there’s room for improvement though

I love Google chat but there’s room for improvements

- Can I You Free Calls In Google Chat

I’m Loving Loving Google Chat ❤️❤️ But Was Wondering 💭 Can Make Free Calls In Google Chat? Other Then That I’m Loving Google Chat 💬

- Fix Up

Never mind, all my stuff has been transferred

- Horrible app

Stick with hangouts if you can. Or switch to WhatsApp or SMS. So many issues with this app and so many features have been removed. I constantly get phantom notifications for messages I have already read.

- Could be improved

So disappointing ,its called google chat, without chat, you should have named it google text..

- Good app

Easy to use and faster than most messenger apps

- The best

Very good app for chatting to friends recommend to get it.

- Prefer hangouts

Lack of voice and video integrated simply as per hangouts make this hard to recommend

- Dreadful

Who is giving this app positive reviews? It is so basic compared to other apps. You cannot define which notifications you want. I wish my employer would use something else.

- I use Hangouts and Discord

I have 2 accounts, both of them are not G Suite, but why does one have access the other doesn't?

- Hate this useless app

Hangouts is 50,000 times better than this. Takes forever to load on my computer. I cannot believe that google made this. They obviously wanted a quick buck during lockdown.

- App needs update

The app is great but when you make a video it take a while to process even though it’s a 39 sec video, and in desktop there’s no video function

- Mr!

So many of us were enjoying what we had then Google came along & stuffed it up! They deliberately removed the camera for our use? WhatsApp has a camera!

- Bug City

I can’t believe how many bugs are in this app. The most annoying probably being that messages do not get marked as read so the app permanently shows unread message notifications.

- Google hangouts far superior

Looks like someone is trying to justify there job at google by getting rid of hangouts which works to replace it with a buggy mess

Payoneer 💰

Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!

- Just some advice

The app is awesome. It allows me to chat and meet with whoever. Just make sure that you bring it down to lower iOS.

- Could be better

I feel this chat doesn’t take full advantage of being a google product and being able to integrate all products seamlessly. The fact that you can upload one thing at a time is a big pain. The chat works, but it’s nothing more than that.

- i don’t like it

i don’t like it, it’s hard to find your group chats, i like google hangouts better. maybe change it back to google hangouts? me and my friend are having hard time. you kind of copied Discord with the bots and the : command. it’s like walmart Discord. and I also think the rooms are useless, at least make it google hangouts again? i can’t even use google hangouts on my school account anymore, i have to use google chat. please change it.

- Lacks basic functionality, way too slow

No way to save an image from chat to the device (seriously!?) Super slow to load Won’t resume the app with your previous chat open Tiny tap area to open a chat from the list Lacking other really basic functionality for a messaging app. Never mind the question about why google now has 3+ messaging apps that do the same thing.

- 4 stars?

I don’t know why this app got 4 stars. Very basic app that is worse than my own chat app I built for fun

- Can’t Leave Group Messages

You can leave rooms but you can’t remove yourself from group messages. As soon as you’re added to one with a large number of participants you’ll never be free of unwanted messages. You can turn off the notifications, and hide the chat, but then as soon as one of the 1000+ (or more) trollers says something, it returns. That’s a deal breakers for me. No thanks Google. Fix your product.

- The is trash


- Why won’t message notification go away!?!

The little red icon won’t go away! Please fix. I have no new messages either.

- Not at all ready for full launch

Can’t believe giant like google could not pull this such a basic app. Slack is way more powerful than this. Can’t even share the google drive link directly. Seriously?

- Banned???

Idk why the app banned me for no reason. I literally did nothing

- Just one more thing…

In the laptop/desktop version of chat, you can send GIFS, can you add that on mobile?

- Mediocre

Can’t even figure out how to make a call like in hangouts…

- could be better

the app crashes every 10 minutes, and my computer is the latest one. it wouldn’t let me use it on my main account. and now the app is not accessible. it is also now apparently $14.99 in canadian dollars. come on google chat.

- There’s a glitch need fixing

It could be that my iPad mini 4 is really old and can’t handle anything, but there’s a glitch that makes it so that the other person that i’m talking to messages won’t load for me until I send a message. It happens sometimes and it’s fixed when i refresh the app but it is an inconvenience, Also the google auto suggestions are insane and i love them please never change them.

- Trash.

This app is trash. I can’t text to any of my groups. I can’t sign into the old one. I can only see a few of the people I talk to. I hate it.

- it’s a no from me ❤️

it’s not letting me make a chat room, nor does it let others add me to their chat rooms. It’s a walmart discord.

- Not good

Limited functionality, threading feature is confusing. Really bad muting features. It's shocking that we haven't seen any updates to improve Hangouts chat yet

- Glitchy

Super glitchy. Can’t use gifs in chats anymore and the badge always shows a ‘1’ even when I’ve read all my messages.

- Miss Hangouts

Why the heck is google taken down hangouts???? I love it so much and they replaced it with this piece of crap? It’s so glitchy and way worse then hangouts. GOOGLE BRING BACK HANGOUTS PLEASE! 🙏😭

- Not super

Glitchy, limited features. Can’t even rename a chat room...


C’mon google :( this shouldn’t be too hard. I’m tired of blinding myself when chatting with my team. How does google KEEP have a dark mode and not CHAT?

- Endroit merveilleux et une grande gentillesse de votre part

Votre équipe est digne de confiance et c’est merveilleux et on ce sent en sécurité dans votre site Grand merci

- Just a Scammers app.

If you thinking about it there’s no way google will have a chat over there emails..

- Google chat

Really good app to keep In touch with friends who live far away and close by


freud!! after I downloaded this I got bunch of email that I didn’t subscribe in. this is scam!!!

- Cool


- Gahahsksksksbsnsjsnnscocksjsnnsnsjsjw

Why y’all leaving one stars this thing saved my life bc my goofy friend don’t have a phone

- Couldn’t download

I found it annoying that since my device isn’t iOS 14.0 I can’t get the update so now I can’t access group chats even though I could before also I can’t get into google meet so if u could add that it would be nice

- This is AWESOME!

I think that this thingamajiger is amazing!I have the need to use this allot.

- Review

This app needs many features like other messaging apps, like a media place where we can see all the media files. Then editing the picture before we share it and also, a one time see option/timer or something for the picture

- Unable to share to

Share button brings up list of apps you can stare content to. Unfortunate this app doesn’t appear as an option anywhere, unlike the old hangouts app. Very disappointing.

- Waste of time

Do yourself a favour run away from this app I added this a little while back and I’ve been getting friends requests from all over asking for money and it’s not safe to many so called woman contacting me on this but it’s not what you think they are scammers trying to bleed a buck outa you

- Very good lol

Ty google this is a good chat app that I can use in school!!!! I have found so many loopholes so that my teachers can’t monitor my chat. Thank You!

- Needs Voice Recording to be complete

I like it but just incomplete

- We need hangouts back

This app sucks, hangouts was way better, switch back

- Should be able to

Should be able to completely delete a picture if sent to another user both copies encrypted so it can’t be saved but can be deleted from chat by owner of picture and easier to report if being scammed

- Best place to chat

I think this is the best app to chat because if you don’t have a phone or a number to call or chat with others from WhatsApp or Snapchat, this is the best app to chat. Also in any devices you can chat while in other apps you can’t chat with different devices. This is the best app and it as helped me a lot. Thank you so much for creating this app and thank you so much who are contributors of this app.

- Very cool but..

Pls add a video meet in the app.

- Another bad idea from google

I don’t use chat (have never used it) but I started to get spam from Random people on chat and those messages showed up in gmail (as a notification). I had to download the Chat app just to unsubscribe from messages (the unsubscribe link in those emails wants to open the Chat app). Once I downloaded the Chat app then went into the chat message email and clicked on unsubscribe, it opens the chat app but does nothing. 1) I should not be getting messages from random people 2) the unsubscribe link is just a trick to get people to download the Chat app. Shameful behaviour to trick people into downloading the Chat app. Typically google forcing people to use their bad inventions just to try to get the number of users up.

- Notifications

My notifications have suddenly stopped working. They are on, my phone has notifications enabled … but for some reason they just stopped working. I’ve changed nothing on my phone. It’s SO annoying.

- Come on man,


- Chat

U can add ppl but it doesn’t give u anywhere to delete them

- It’s good

I like it, personally, I have no idea why people hate on it. If you have a group, there is a section where you can share folders! I just think it’s cool, oh, and there is a place where you can make a little game, where you can ask people to do stuff. Like, in my chat, “sing the among us theme song”. And when they do it, it said they did it. It may not be as good as discord or messenger, but it is still great! And I don’t exactly expect it to be that great, since it is not one of google’s main projects, and that would mean they don’t spend much time, money and effort on it. Finally, on those terms, that means it is great, so I rate it a 4 stars! 😁

- No privacy

Being in Chat is not secure

- Good

I find the application very good, although we cannot make immediate calls and the app is a bit slow. My bestie and I talk to each other almost exclusively on Chat and our friendship is doing well.

- Videos

Can not send a video do NOT get this app

- yo mama is fat

I like the app in general but you can’t delete messages, maybe they should add that update

- Google

My dick didn’t fit in it

- why cant you call people

google please let people call each other without using google meet because google meet sucks because you have to use a message to call somebody it’s soo inconvenient

- Lost all Archived Hangouts chats

Was forced to upgrade, can’t even use hangouts and lost all archived chats upon upgrade. Terrible move
