Great for messaging users with Google Accounts

from PC Magazine
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... Full review

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.

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... Full review


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 involved with the whole Google+ app, maybe Hangouts is a perfect fit... Full review
