Overall Satisfaction with Google Hangouts (Classic)

We used to use [Google Hangouts (Classic)] to communicate across our team. It served its purpose well, although it is outdone by several other chat clients at this point in time. It is very responsive but lacks extra features that other clients provide.
  • Shrug emoticon
  • Notifications
  • Sharing images and starting meets
  • Gif integration
  • Searching
  • I believe it was part of the google suite that was purchased. It was worth the cost as it was cheaper. I believe it is now free, but also becoming deprecated. It is much better to use Teams, Discord, Telegram, etc. Google does not provide enough support or features to make using hangouts worth it these days.
Google Hangouts [(Classic)] is better than jabber, but way behind all other business chat clients. I would much rather use any of the alternatives I have listed in place of Hangouts.
