    I'd prefer stock, using hangouts for sms just stinks since idk why but it has a character limits, so I can't write more than 160 character limit. Idk if it's a bug or something, but doing stock for now

    chill dude. i have not issued a worldwide decree here. you will still get the update.


    which i have tried and its limited. you havent. you made a decision without even trying it. fine, suit yourself to not being able to block spam sms or hangouts not identifying phones which you havent entered in the "proper" format. not to mention a character limit per text..


    geez.

    I have 4.3 waiting for me to install, but won't commit until I see further comments. It appears people are having problems.

    Again don't tell me what to do! I side loaded it days ago and liked it. I just want the official Google release. Even if it's the same as the apk. Maybe you just don't understand.

    My hangouts updated and I used it for about a day or so for SMS, but have since uninstalled the updates and went back to the facroty version on my HTC One, I thought it was rather slow and somewhat buggy. It definitely wasn't as good as the stock messaging app on my phone. The emoji's were slow to load almost every time I opened them and I had quite a bit of issues with SMS not being sent. Glad some people are having a better experience than I did, but I will not be using it for SMS, at least not this current version that is being released.

    Have to say,I think it's pretty dreadful.why is it only 90% of the screen wide? It's a mess.

    I got the update a couple of days ago. It's not terrible, but it is a bit slow to send SMS messages, plus it appears to have eaten an incoming MMS; I got the "Tap to download" message in Hangouts, but nothing ever comes through, while the Messages app doesn't show it at all.

    It seems pretty obvious that Hangouts as currently implemented is just a front end for whatever services you use, hence the ability to concurrently use the Messages app (+) as well as the lack of conversational continuity (-).

    I'm hoping this is still early days, and that a tighter integration is in the works.

    I wan to say that I've had 2 or 3 updates in the past few days, to a week, for hangouts, but I've only just recently even tried Hangouts. I've only tried it because I read a post about being able to do sms with it. I really don't know much about it but I'm not terribly impressed with it so far. I don't think I've experienced the character limit. I get pretty wordy so if there is a limit I will probably not use it. Right now I'm just playing around with it, but I keep catching myself in Handcent, old habits and all. Anyway I haven't found anything that is really a compelling reason to continue to use it over any other app. I don't feel like it has many options, which I guess could appeal to the vanilla android users. It doesn't show all the profile pics I have for people, I accidentally archived some messages and now it seems like I need a network to view them, I don't know what the mood option changes, and everything is really slow on it. Seems like it's always loading, or taking forever to send a message. Just now it took 2 minutes to add a contact to an SMS? I have a feeling my time with hangout will be short.
