Re: Hangouts MMS Size
Last month I posted the following to another thread:
(attaching videos in hangouts)
And this is another way in which iOS's Messages is better than Android's Hangouts.
In Messages I can select a short video I've previously taken and send it directly to another Messages user (via data not mms). If the video size is too large to send the app lets me trim it to a sendable length. But I can send/receive a 90 second decent quality video this way (again, I realize it's not via mms).
Even if I have just a 5 second 480p video (~3.75MB) I maddeningly can't send that via Hangouts (to, say, another android/hangouts user). I can only create a fresh mms-capable video, a video that will be of crappy quality, a video that will be Auto Uploaded but which won't be viewable in the phone's Gallery.
btw, the clips I record via Hangouts can be about 45 seconds in length. Are you sure you only get 20 seconds?
