Overall Satisfaction with Google Hangouts (Classic)
Google Hangouts (Classic) is currently being used for instant messaging with colleagues while we are in the Gmail interface. Occasionally it's used as a mobile app. Since we are using G Suite, it is a convenient way to communicate while we are in the Gmail interface.
- It is convenient for sending quick messages to contacts who have Gmail accounts.
- It is available as an app and is a good instant messaging alternative that uses data, not minutes.
- The interface is not as slick as other apps. It feels like it has been abandoned by the developer.
- You cannot customize the look and feel of it, in case that is important.

Google Hangouts is a quick and convenient way to communicate via instant message with someone who has a Gmail account but otherwise would not or has not created an account with any of the more popular applications like Messenger or Whatsapp. It is especially useful for organizations that are on G Suite, as all members will instantly have Hangouts available to them. Therefore, I would recommend it for internal use as well as for use with family.
