    Default I keep praising Hangouts, but......................................

    I am constantly praising Google's Hangouts as in my opinion it is far superior to stuff used previously, ie messenger, skype and have found that whichever we use, phone, laptop or tablet, the sheer simplicity of it all, make it our favourite.

    But, just in case I've missed anything, do you know of any of it's failings, if indeed it has any?

    Yes, Hangouts has a fundamental flaw: it's in Google's walled garden. I don't like walled gardens.

    FB messenger works way better and looks better as well. But the IOS version of Hangouts looks greats! I dont understand Google at times. Let us have one app that actually makes us glad we got rid of the old one.

    I don't like how when I select a photo from my gallery and hit share hangouts only let's me send it to one person. If I open hangouts then attach photo it works. Also half of my iPhone friends never get my messages.

    The need to solidify features and remove all the animations and transitions in the app. FUNCTION should be the focus.

    Hangouts is the only instant messaging program I use (if you don't count regular SMS), I just use it for Ingress related chat, so I can't compare it to others IM apps, but:

    It's too easy to start a video call. There should be a way to disable video calls (perhaps on a per hangout basis) so you can't hit it accidentally, and also a confirmation that is what you want to do. I have found an app to block the button, but it shouldn't be needed.

    I also think they should make it easier to turn off notifications for individual hangouts.

    That wouldn't happen if you use either Telegram or Viber. Both free apps.
