Google Talk – Most of us will know this as Google Hangouts, so don’t be confused.  While the Talk model is just not out there on the Play Store, Hangouts continues to be fairly robust for many who want to attach with limitless knowledge whereas their precise textual content messages are restricted.  The integration with SMS that Google did was not acquired very nicely regardless of its nicely which means intentions so many deserted Talk and Hangouts to make use of different providers (a lesson to different apps to draw back from monumental change).
