Yay. I'm a bigger fan of Allo. Hangouts is just taking up space.
Google love changing names of their apps that do the same thing as the one before it. I think they are just bad at marketing to be honest. theres nothing wrong with hand out but somehow they failed to market it. one app that can handle SMS online messaging video calls conference calls, you can't really complain. now we have to put up with duo and allo that's terrible and never really work lol
I don't use hangouts more often but Google is awesome with its apps and Android OS.
Whoever is in charge of developing messaging apps at Google is a pure duffus.
Instead of focusing on one messaging app that does it all and works flawlessly, they've decided to make multiple apps that work poorly and lack expected basic functionality.
I know that Google apps are not that popular between android users, but I really liked the features hangout was providing (sms + chat). I've also enjoyed merged chat with sms, and lots of my friends are using hangout. I'm not a big fan of Google Plus but I don't want the app to be discontinued because lot of people are using it.
Since start it was nothing more than a bloatware to me. Should have been done earlier.
It seems like me and my group of friends must be the only people that actually use Hangouts.
One more unusable app that cant be uninstalled without rooting Great
Google shouldnt force its app onto manufacturers if it cant support it
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2017stay away from all native google apps. they all spy on you. google knows more about you than... moreGuess what when you download or starting using the google set of apps on your phone they tell you what they use it's your choice. Ask yourself something if you use IOS message app how comes they know how many messages were sent and how many photos were used in a message. Don't fool yourself thinking that its only Google at least when you download a google app they tell that they are using the camera to look at you it's your choice to download it. Please get a clue if you are using the internet in any form even if its not from Google they know what they are doing

google knows more about you than you yourself.
Banutu, 07 Jan 2017Hangouts is the first application I uninstall/disable when I first set up a phone. same here, and that is one of the bloatware we really cant get rid of :/ even on clean os, hangouts is still there. but i hope google+ and hangouts will be gone forever.

google have the new service of hangout is also known as a google talk persovly as google talk is good software which have the detail of call on sms on this hangout
"Thus, Hangouts' faith is still quite uncertain and while Google is sticking to its promise not to retire it". Should rather be, "Thus, Hangouts' fate..."
