    Trying to wrap my head around Google Hangout. I have it on my Nexus 4 and 7. Is it like Blackberry Messenger in that it only works with others how have GH installed for Texting?

    I would use it if texting to others was universal, regardless of what the recipient was using for texting.

    Hangouts is essentially an instant messenger app. In order to have a Hangout conversation with someone else, they also have to use Google Hangouts (either on their phone or their computer). Hangouts can also show SMS texting, if you set it up as the default texting app. You can distinguish SMS conversations from Hangout conversations by looking for the SMS symbol in the text entry field. If you're sending an SMS text via Hangouts, then anyone can receive it.
