i think this is great for chat and also video chat, it's very simple and works great when you need to contact somone outside the country also

I'm trying to verify, if to use Hangouts video chat on an iOS, do you have to have a gmail account?

about Hangouts and Skype Apr 2016

i've been using hangout for a while now and has proven to so much faster and better that skype. I honestly wouldn't go back to use skype, this one is faster and easier so i recommend this one.

i really like this app, it works great on my phone and it's faster than any other i've got like whatsapp. i think there might be some improvements to be made but i think is still one of the best


Nice, but could do better

about Hangouts Mar 2015

Very fast at sending and receiving messages, especially on mobile. I get my messages faster here than on other IM apps such as Whatsapp and Viber. Still some improvements to be done, like sometimes messages sent on a desktop don't get on the mobile version, which has caused me some problems in the past.


Pidgin absolutely is an alternative to google talk

Pidgin has an expansive plug-in ecosystem. Please un-remove it (add it back) as an alternative

Google Talk [ now Small Hangouts iconHangouts ]


Small Pidgin iconPidgin

and by extension
Small Adium iconAdium

the same claims apply to miranda
Small Miranda IM iconMiranda IM

Jitsi provides audio chat SIP/Jingle, and text chat XMPP, SIMPLE
Small Jitsi iconJitsi

Jitsi with 35 votes ought not be buried under show all.
