Hangouts for iOS enables you to connect with a friend or an entire group over message, video, or voice.

Pros

Three ways to connect: Hangouts for iOS enables you to connect with contacts over messaging, voice, or video calls. You can switch between these modes at any point within the conversation.

Great for groups: Message up to 150 people at a time or call up to 10 Hangouts users in a group call -- all for free.

Works across your devices: Start a conversation on your mobile device and switch to desktop or vice versa.

Google Voice integration: Add Google Voice for phone number, SMS, and voicemail integration.

More than words: When a picture is worth a thousand words, send a photo. Or use a sticker, an emoji, or an animated GIF.

Quick sign-up process: Just select your Gmail address and enter your phone number, and you're good to go.

Cons

Poor call quality: Hangouts for iOS, which routes your calls through Google's servers, doesn't provide great sound quality. Google claims that two-person calls will improve over time.

Bottom Line

Hangouts for iOS is a great option for communicating with friends or teams in a variety of ways and for free.
