This app sucks, it show every single contact on my phone, not just the ones who have the app...

TBH i prefer the emoji integrated into Jelly Bean over these. The single color and simple design look classy and unified.

I still haven't upgraded from Talk since they still haven't put online status into the Hangouts app. They're probably just trying to increase use, but... sigh.

No, seeing whether people are online or away. Sometimes it doesn't matter, but in certain circumstances I don't like messaging people when they're away.

SMS integration and a cleaner way to display contacts would be perfect on this app. The video calling kills everything I've ever used period. I love being able to hangout with PCs and phones at the same time on a a video conference but really nobody uses Google + so its confusing
