    Does Chomp allow you to mute group messages?

    Can you mute group conversations with hangouts? Also, can you use it to send texts etc?

    I have been using Hangouts for a couple of years now. My sister got me to use it because then it doesn't count as texting. I like having SMS show up in there as well so it doesn't really feel like i'm using a different app. I did however almost stop using it last night for SMS. It somehow created an SMS account for me. So if I wanted to send a text I had to switch accounts to SMS. If I wanted to send a Hangouts message I had to switch to my google account. I was so mad because I heard they were going to be messing with how SMS works with the app supposedly to get people to use the regular text app. I was able to fix the issue but now i'm thinking about trying another app just for texting. I probably won't stick with it because it will become annoying but I think i'm going to try Textra again. I did use it for a bit before Hangouts and I remember liking it a lot.

    Maybe someone can help me on a choice. I have been a hardcore apple boy for a long time. Bought a tab S2 a couple of days a go and love it. Problem is, and I've read this is a common problem, getting out of the Apple eco system. I plan on getting a galaxy note 5 real soon, but I am going to miss messaging from my mac, phone, and tablet. Is there any apps that can send sms synced on all those devices? I was looking at google hangouts. Anything will help. I'm really new to the android os.


    Thanks,

    I don't use it myself so can't personally vouch for it, but a lot of my contacts and friends swear by Pushbullet.

    Google Messenger or Textra for me. I switch back and forth every so often. I may have to try Hangouts as there are a few users here that say it is quite good.

    I was using Google Messenger but recently switched to Hangouts, which I like since everything is in one place.

    Whatsapp allows you to text to an international number for free, basically for both sides.

    I MISS BBM!

    I deleted it because no one used it... So sad. I think it's the best messaging app for cross-platform devices (/mostly? Has WP been added yet; or has nothing come of that... ?)/in general; but yeah... No one seems to listen!
    What do you mean no one uses BBM ???

    There are 100,000,000 downloads of BBM in Google Play.

    By "no one," I meant no one in my circles of friends. I definitely didn't mean "no one out there" haha!

    I used Handcent for years, but it seemed to get so bloated and slow that I had to find an alternative. Used Google's Messenger briefly, but ultimately landed on Textra and I love it. Gotten a few friends using it, too, and they tell me they love it as well.

    I know lots of people didn't care for the stock sms of Lollipop/Marshmallow. However, I love it and that's what I use. Before I used Chomp. Loved it, too.

    I use Textra because it has certain customization options that I haven't found in other SMS apps. For example, when I got my Nexus 5 hooked up MTS, I could send and receive MMSs, but not if I was on Wifi. Somehow having WiFi enabled would screw things up for me. I've come to the conclusion that when I sent a picture or receive one, the previous SMS apps would try to use WiFi to get the job done. While I definitely see that as an advantage, my carrier doesn't seem to support that. I tried out Textra on a whim, and as it turns out, Verizon or another US carrier had this issue as well and there's an option that when you receive or send an MMS, it will temporarily disable WiFi if you're connected.

    Along with other neat features like making a noise when a text is sent out or choosing how long to have a text float on the lockscreen is part of the reason why I prefer Textra over the rest. I will admit that I do like the UI of Google Messenger.
