Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Google Chat reviews

This replacement for Hangout and Allo is sub par at best. I can't manually delete messages like I can with any other app. I also have to manually open each image one at a time to both send and view instead of selecting multiple to upload or swiping between images that were sent. This feels like a junior ancillary project from Google instead of a well fleshed out and developed app. It's predecessors we're superior. That being said, I do like the ability to multi emoji react to a message.

Nice update for Google Hangouts which is going away at any time. Hangout's used to be nearly an all in one for communication, but Google stripped a lot of the functionality for no particular other than they were introducing other apps that ended up dying on the vine. This is the replacement. Fairly basic, functional and the UI is slightly better than Hangout's. I hope Google continues to work with it instead of letting it go after 6-12 months. Right now I like it.

Again, updates have fixed nothing about this terrible app. Stay away from this if you have any other alternatives. Very buggy and dropped notifications. Unable to go direct video call in app, requires a separate app. Too much friction. Unable to open URLs in a separate browser, links open up in the app, which is a dumb idea.

8×8 Meet reviews

This app is terrible. No way to prevent ring through to cell phone even while in the office. Even when I answered my desk phone, the app is still ringing my cell phone during the call. I have disabled all notifications in the app settings, app ignores settings. This is so frustrating. I just need the app to be able to make work calls while away from my desk. I don't want work calls to ever ring my phone. Choose another VOIP provider if you can.

Garbage! Unreliable, randomly rings or doesn't, missed calls I didn't even know I had, and when I do make a call out there's a delay - the call recipient is like, hello? hello? And I've spent literally hours with tech - changing settings, reinstalling, on and on and on. Unfortunately this is what the firm I work for uses

- Don Farnsworth

The app worked fine for a short period. Now it gives the splash screen when call comes in but about 80% of the time it doesnt show the number. The other 20% it shows for about 2 seconds before maximum number of rings accurs. Sometimes the app doesn't even display but that is rare. At this point the app is useless for calls but can at least check VM an get notifications of missed calls so when not in the office I know about it
