Hangouts is a messaging app that lets you send and receive messages, photos and more, and even start free video and voice calls – one to one or with a group! "Hangouts" are places used to facilitate group video chat (with a maximum of 10 people participating in a single Hangout at any point in time). Within the 10 person limit participants may use voice only phones to dial in to the hangout instead of the desktop or mobile video chat feature.
- Hangouts only allows cross-platform SMS access of a Google Voice number.
- Requires internet for both parties.
