I just created an account.
finally got a hold of someone to test it. Eh I say it may have gotten a lot of hype early but just as stated a little too late. With the only good thing I can see from it is the cross platform but sms and now hangout is fulfilling that. I feel like blackberry sat on this thing. It is obvious they are trying one last ditch effort to remain relevant but they have failed yet again in my opinion. Between the hassle it takes to add people and the lack of features I do not see it competing with what is out now. Be interested to hear your opinions.
wow... I remember a few years ago when people actually used BBs that BBM was wanted by some of us early Android adapters just for easy cross-platform coms but seriously, who the hell uses a BB anymore?? RIM just needs to accept their faith and die quietly and stop trying to rehash old/outdated products as something useful.
You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe
I agree with a lot of what's already been said. If this incorporated SMS it would be a different game. But it does seem like a PIA to add people and there is no guarantee that the people you invite will want to use it.
I just wish that Google would hurry up with adding sms to handouts.
