Great for messaging users with Google Accounts

Hangouts makes a lot of sense on Android since it connects you to other Google users and devices. That's still valuable on iOS, but it's up against some pretty stiff competition. The iOS Messages app has free iOS to iOS messages and FaceTime built right in, giving me immediate access to all of my contacts. By comparison, it makes Hangouts feel like little more than an appendage.

Quality could be better

from Laptop Magazine

We like that Google Hangouts offers video chat and that you can chat with friends on iOS or Android devices. However, the app's technical glitches and awful video quality need serious improvement.

Offers little for those who’ve remained on the Google+ sidelines

from Mac Life

Hangouts is a nice first step toward unification, but we’re waiting for the promised Google Voice integration before this has the potential to replace our go-to messaging apps.

Clean design, cross-platform

from iMore

If you chat with friends on Google Talk or Google+ often, then Hangouts is awesome and you should definitely pick it up.

Still lagging somewhat behind other competitors

Google Hangouts does a good job of working with the multitasking limitations of iOS. Instant messages and incoming calls are signalled to you with push notifications, even on the lock screen. Also, when you have a video call running, you can navigate away into other parts of the app. A green bar at the top of the app indicating there’s an active call provides a quick route back into the call at all times.

If family, friends or co-workers are engaged with Google Plus, there’s no reason not to install Google Hangouts. However, if you find that most of the people in your life are using Whatsapp, Facebook or Skype all the time, you’ll use Google Hangouts very little.

Easy to navigate, and the app performs well

from Cnet

Google Hangouts does what it's supposed to do: it makes video calls and lets you message your friends. For iOS users, it has an advantage over Apple's FaceTime in that it can make video calls across platforms. So, if you want a slightly quicker way to access hangouts, or just don't want to get in...

Google Hangouts does what it's supposed to do: it makes video calls and lets you message your friends. For iOS users, it has an advantage over Apple's FaceTime in that it can make video calls across platforms. So, if you want a slightly quicker way to access hangouts, or just don't want to get involved with the whole Google+ app, maybe Hangouts is a perfect fit.
