Better than Hangouts

With google chat you can send pictures and documents but you can’t with hangouts. Chat is hangouts replacement and chat has meet
in it but needs special settings for it. It’s the best!!!

“You don’t have access to google chat”

It’s a good app it’s just I have had some problems with it saying “ your organization doesn’t have access to google chat
yet... and so on, I don’t have an organization it was used to just keep in contact with distant friends. Please fix this

This app is so good for messaging and no this is not a bot account. I personally think that it amazing but...............
hangouts was 10000% better than it.

Bug that makes it a deal breaker.

Works fine but the notification badge is stuck at (1) despite not having any unread messages and there's nothing I can do about
it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the application to no success. I have to disable badge notifications, meaning I
miss out on messages a lot..

Not for work definitely

This is supposed to be a work chat, to discuss tasks, projects about and around your work.
The chat thread idea is definitely the best in this product. And that’s all. You can’t send multiple images, files, links with
one message, so it’s absolutely unsuitable to discuss complex projects.

It’s pretty good

It’s pretty good but for some reason my email won’t work anymore. I use my school account to text my niece and I used to be
able to do it but now it says I don’t have permission to use the email. And when I tried to text her with my other emails it
says I couldn’t use those either.

Gif game is disappointing

I love the ability to edit messages, and the functionality to create chat rooms & share files in the platform.

However—GIPHY bot is terrible, and doesn’t appear to support other gif apps. My gif game has taken a hit; humorous/expressive
communication is definitely lacking.

Also, Google Meet is a

Being able to list your status was a feature my employer used. We can now only be active or not and can’t let our colleagues

It seems that if you have chat open on your desktop web browser you won’t get notifications on your phone.. Aside from that very
irritating “feature” this seems decent enough.

It’s okay actually, especially for people like me that don’t like calling. If you and you friend do want to call, you or them
can send a meet link by pressing a button, which is nice. Hangouts is better though, since it has everything. I love using this to
chat with my friend I guess

Not being able to hide your status is a total bummer! There really should be some type of “ghost” status option.

To fix the (1) Notification Badge on the app icon:

Lame that even after the updates, there was no official fix on the annoying (1) Notification showing in the Notification Badge on
the app icon. Even though all my chats/messages are read, it STILL continued to show that I have 1 unread notification on the app
(but where??).

To fix this,

One app that can Chat, audio calls, video 1:1, video group!
