Free unified messaging network

Google Hangouts is a unified messaging network created by Google to allow users to initiate and interact with their contacts and networks through various methods such as email, voice, and video chats. You will incorporate this web program with your Google+ and Gmail accounts to connect to the people on your contact list. For versatility, the software is accessible through multiple platforms like your PC, tablet, or using web browsers.

What is the purpose of Hangouts?

Hangouts offer standard features common in social and communication apps. Not only can you talk with your friends, but you can also send media files such as images and emojis. Unfortunately, you need to submit an invitation to someone before you can launch a discussion with them. The great thing about Hangouts is that you can speak to a wide number of people, making it a flexible tool to use with either chats or voice and video calls. 

Chats can hold up to 150 users in one group. Hangouts also support video chat parties, and users can make free video calls for up to 10 people. If your conversation history is being clogged by conversations, users can archive them for better organization. These archived conversations can still be accessed at a later date. Alternatively, users can opt to leave the conversation entirely, but that would result in the conversation no longer being accessible to the user.

No matter the network you use Hangouts on, the simple GUI is the common feature in all of them. Unlike other chat applications out there, Hangouts is not overloaded with needless features like games or stories. Instead, it just includes the most important things that you'll need and you're going to use for a chat app like addresses, chats, and calls. One dated feature in Hangouts though is that it still prompts a new chat window.

Easy and Simple Chat Service

Google Hangouts is ideal for a wide range of use cases and needs due to its easy-to-use interface and functionality. It doesn't have the bloat that other messaging apps have, but it maintains the strength needed to provide high-quality value and serve as a proper communication tool to its users. If you need a chat service without any needless things or embellishment, so Google Hangouts is a perfect app for you.
