    I am having a bit of an issue with group texts through Hangouts. I am texting with 4 other people, 3 are iPhone users and the other is a Nexus 5 user. The iPhone users' texts all stay in the same thread while the Nexus 5 users' come in its own thread.

    Any ideas why they're not all coming in on the same thread?

    I hated Hangout at first after beating my head againts the wall to text friends when the N5 first came out in November. I moved to 8SMS then everyone told me Textra was better but after two days I went back to 8SMS. Then they updated Hangout and I moved back to it two days ago and three of my friends with had no issues but one friend with a Samsung S4 on AT&T complained he wasn't getting my SMS text in the right place. So it is back to 8SMS for me for SMS/MMS.

    Hangout is a work in progress that isn't for me now for the 2nd time after the upgrade. When Hangout gets the SMS and MMS integration right then I will try it again when they get their act together.

    Hangouts is horrible for group texts. Textra works great for me, even in large group messages with a plethora of phones
