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.

Circuit reviews

"Nice messaging app" What do you like best about Circuit? Circuit is a nice collaboration tool (messaging/call/screen sharing) app for the office. I have used it for a very long time and am very satisfied with it. I liked the feature like screen sharing, video or voice call, message. We come to know about the status of other colleagues. Now I have joined new organisation and here we do not have any collaboration tools in case circuit team is seeing this review I would like to get in touch with them to get it implemented in my organisation.

"Great collaboration tool for business" What do you like best about Circuit? Circuit is an excellent platform for your daily stable business meetings/video conferencing as it doesn't take long to set it up even in case there is an urgent or unplanned meeting. Plus if anyone misses the meeting Circuit allows you to record the meeting. It is very efficient for me as I can handle the internal communication of my team like chats and data shared.

- Akshat S.

"Easy to use" What do you like best about Circuit? Meetings and clarifications through chat and to attend meetings, new updates from managers and conducting training sessions to all new joiners, will join through mobile app as well.
