Have you  tested new messenger app, Hangouts!!!!!?
It has been a long time in the making, and it's finally here. The Google Talk replacement is available for Android. Hangouts brings with it a plethora of new features to play around with, including group messaging, inline pictures, and more! 

Hangouts brings one-on-one and group conversations to life with photos, emoji, and video calls for free. Connect with friends across computers, Android and Apple devices. 

Google claims following for this app:
● Say more with photos and emoji.
● See when people are together in Hangouts, when they’re typing, or whether they’ve seen your message.
● Turn any conversation into a video call with up to 10 friends.
● Message friends anytime, even if they're not connected right now.
● Use Hangouts on computers, Android and Apple devices.
● Hangouts stay in sync across devices so you can start or continue them anywhere.
● Choose from hundreds of emoji to help you make your point
● See what you talked about in the past, including shared photos and your video call history.
● Get notifications just once. Once you see an alert, you won’t see repeats on your device.
● View collections of photos shared from each of your Hangouts.
● Snooze notifications at times when you’d prefer to be undisturbed by alerts.
 
When you get down to the core of Hangouts, it basically functions the same way Google Talk did. You can have text conversations with people and start video chats just like you could on Google Talk. The difference here is that video chats are now Google Hangouts like they are on Google+ instead of normal video calls on Google Talk.

Google has had some new functionality to the app though. You can now have group chats, which was a much needed feature in Google Talk. In my testing, this worked seamlessly. It's a great feature if you often need to have group chats with your team at work or with a bunch of gaming buddies during your downtime.

One of the best features of the new Google Hangouts app is the amount of emojis there are. Hundreds of them are available at your fingertips. There's smileys, animals, dragons, and much, much more. I think you can easily say that there's an emoji for every expression in Hangouts.

Lastly, one of the great things about Hangouts is that you can now share images directly through the app. This functionality wasn't really there with Google Talk. Normally you would have to upload the picture elsewhere, such as imgur, and then paste the link. Now you can easily share files straight from your device.

The new Google Hangouts app is a vast, and welcome improvement over Google Talk. As was expected, Google has had a few launch problems. You can face a little bit problemof not getting switched from Talk to Hangouts a full day or longer after updating.

You can update the old Google Talk app to get the new Google Hangouts.
You can also download the new Hangouts app from the Google Play Store.

    1. Yaa, google play service is a must. Since you are rooted, you can easily check for the same in system apps. If not there, then copy and paste the relevant apk file there. Also give permissions in Droidwall or other firewall if installed. Thats all.

    1. Which ROM are you using? Few ROMs like "Blackstar" have such issues.
