Hangouts is the messenger app released in 2003 at the Google I/O conference. This has quickly became a widely adopted messaging application which features integrations of existing products such as Google Talk and Google+ Messenger. The application is based entirely on cloud computing and allows users to easily keep in touch with friends and family, message each other for free, and make voice and video calls.
Users of other products such as Gmail and Google Drive will find hangouts especially useful due to its seamless integration and minimal yet beautiful user interface. Hangouts is our number one recommended messaging application for Android devices.
