Comments and Reviews from users:

Chubby Trucker: “If you're reading this, do not do the latest update!!! This app worked fine until I updated it on 2/7/34. Now it doesn't send messages even when I have a great signal. Also doesn't receive messages too good. Everything has to load and very slowly. Read thru other reviews and it seems like they all say the same thing since the last update. Don't do it!!” – 2/5 in Play Store

Mac Alan: “After switching from iPhone to a Galaxy s24 Ultra, admittedly I'm not impressed w/ the Google Meet/Video Call. I know it's bc I'm partial to FaceTime still. It has worked flawlessly so far but it's not a very streamlined process to video chat w/ another s24 user. In a call I have to hit the Meet button which opens up the Meet app, then I have to hit the call button. It would be much more impressive if it was all handled in the phone app. I'm giving it 3 stars knowing I'm biased on the topic.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

M. Burke: “Before, the app was fine. Until the updates came along... I am unable to send pictures or videos because "the resolution it too high" even though it isn't. & Even that, I once cropped a video I recorded for at least 13 secs & I wanted to edit out some things but once I hit 'send' it once again told me the resolution was to high. BUT, when I sent the original unedited/uncropped version it was completely fine. & there is no updates to fix this problem that has been going on for weeks now.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Zachary Blackett: “I don't like is that I can no longer create group text messages in a simple way, they made it more difficult to use as a texting app, and that is what I mainly use it for texting, also I'd rather like a setting that let's me search just for phone numbers rather than Facebook friends as well. I like the app because it's nice to have texts and Facebook messages together. 6/24 dislike that I cannot send FB memories through app anymore. Says unable to send on this app version with no new updates.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Shane B: “Calling others is good. I like that the conference call feature is fixed. that was broken for a few updates at one point. I think the sound emojis are pointless & obnoxious and nothing more than novel. What I would really like to see is a way to be seamless with video calls. I get it that the fruit brand does their thing and all but, what we have to remember is that a lot of those people choose that brand because to them, menus & options are hard.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Bryan Eichorn: “It's 5 stars on a Pixel. Had to knock off a star due to several features, such as visual voicemail & advanced call screening, not being available on my phone. Unfortunately, having just switched to a Galaxy, these features aren't available. I understand Google keeping certain features for its own phones. However, if you make an app available for other devices, they should all have access to the same features. I used Samsung's apps on my Pixel & the same features were available. I love Samsung!” – 4/5 in Play Store

Cons Can be resource-intensive, occasional connection issues, limited customization options.

Comments and Reviews from users:

John Miner: “TLDR: Works but loses a star each for avoidable lag and removal of features. Skype works great, but embedding the Bing browser introduced severe lag when loading the app or specific conversations. The developer has also removed the function of selecting multiple images to send in messages, forcing them to be selected and added one at a time.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Allen Morse III: “My only complaint involves recent changes to the interface. You used to be able to switch to a Bluetooth device ON THE FLY! You could also use a bluetooth speaker and run the mikes in the phone or tablet. You can do NEITHER now. If you put on earbuds during a call the call is DISCONNECTED! This is a giant leap backwards! The interface is totally oversimplified now, not many options. They needed to have well enough let alone and instead produced a much inferior product from before.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

SimonSez: “Generally, an overall favorable app. It is rather convuluted, as compared to other apps of this kind, and takes a few weeks to get used to. It is, however, functional and has some unique features. THE ONE INTOLERABLE Condition is the app does not download MMS, SMS, and other types of media messages! 😠 UNACCEPTABLE! I paid for a year, have had the app for a few months, and when I notice I've been sent a media message, I have to ask the sender to forward it to another proprietary app!!! 5/24 n/r!” – 2/5 in Play Store

Federico Mattiello: “Tells the wrong name of the person calling me during and after the call. Only useful to block spam, but I'm starting to look for alternatives. *Edit/reply:* the problem is that it happens with contacts that are saved correctly in my phone. When I try to correct the entry it shows the correct number and name, but in the call history the number gets assigned to the wrong name/contact. So there's nothing I can do to correct. It seems it doesn't read correctly numbers during a call.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Arvidas: “unfortunately, messages are delayed, sometimes ten minutes, sometimes half an hour, sometimes several hours, and sometimes until you go to the app . It has nothing to do with connection strength, it has nothing to do with app updates, and it has nothing to do with the hardware you're using, battery opt and so. It's just that messages don't work reliably. Very sorry. Viber has this disease and it is incurable.” – 2/5 in Play Store

KruppeID: “After the latest update, new messages in any group chat do not update the group's (date/latest) status in the last seen list, therefore, the group does not get bumped up to the top of the last seen list with the latest message. Please fix this new bug. Update: the bug has been properly fixed with the new software update. Thus, the rating change Update 2: constantly getting stuck at sending media. Poor quality sometimes at calls, even on high speed WiFi. App quality got worse.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Nick: “Line is great but there's some things that can be pretty frustrating!! Notifications randomly lag throughout the day, and then when you open the app all of them flood through at once. Voice call quality is terrible and lags sometimes. It gets exponentially worse the more ppl are in a call. Also, I wish the pictures and videos could automatically be saved locally. I loose videos and gifs sometimes because of that.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Shouhsin Teng: “Line is wonderful. Always reliable. Newest features are regularly added or improved. The only thing I wish for right now is when I press 'share' from other apps, Line doesn't show up in the list, only Line Keep. Keeps creates extra burdens when you just want share, not keep. Thank you. It was going strong, but recently it stopped sending me any type of notification, audio or visual. Still trying to figure why. Any help??” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Jeremy Oakes: “So far so good, I really like the video call notifications. I also have not received a spam call yet, so either it is working really well or I have not received one yet. I do have two requests, I use my phone in Dex mode, for the PC experiance. I am requesting keyboard support, and when the active call window is not maximized the number pad does not shrink to fit the screen.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Sita-Ram g: “I installed the ad version. I did not see where it will record a call and I had no control on what I want to do. On the screen there were ads everywhere and they were misleading. I had to be careful not to touch on various parts of the phone. This app is very clever, while touching, things sometimes move, and wrong ads get touched. Then there is extra clean up and backtracking work to do. The app itself is not good to use and is a headache.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Cynthia S: “Despite them removing SMS functionality, I kept using it lol. It's just works so well and I love that it's not tied to social media. It also works well when messaging amongst friends/family who don't have the same phone OS (Apple vs Android) and allows us to react to messages and send things on the same platform. Group messages with a mix of Android and Apple phones usually are terrible and don't function well, and on Signal it's all streamlined.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Dylann Maeson: “Straightforward, simple, and secure messaging app. Voice messages, file sharing, contact muting, chat archiving and pinning, and sent message editing all present as we've come to expect from messaging apps. Layout is intuitive and some customization options are present for chat colors and app themes. There is also the "stories" feature as is present on most socials apps today, though it is easy to ignore if you dont use it (as opposed to other apps that place stories above all your chats)🔟/🔟” – 5/5 in Play Store

I would give it a 5 stars rating, but theres is a very annoying bug when you call someone and try to close the screen while the call still going on, here where the notification sound in the background keep running in a very bad way. I hope this bug to be fixed, everything else is perfect so far.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Update 1/19/2020: (1) Here recently - like the last few months - calls do not display on my screen despite the fact that notifications for calls & text are turned on. (2) When I miss a call, there is NO notification BUT when I open the app, it says "Declined" AS IF I have taken some action on my end. (3) There are 2 call notifications, 2 message notifications, and 2 group notifications. WHY? How does a user know which ones to turn on or off?” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Jocelyn Laney: “You get what you pay for, or don't pay for. This app does a semi decent job of letting the user text and make calls. Some apps won't accept the phone number from here. There's charges to receive validation text messages, and ads pop up at crucial moments. (Charge to stop ads) If there was a trial to see what the app is like without the ads, that would be an incentive to pay the charges.” – 2/5 in Play Store

4Runner: “Half the time I can't answer it because the "talk" button doesn't respond. It keeps hanging up and muting my conversations because the designers put the mute and hang up button right where my head rests. And the resources are never available for the app to work smoothly and continuously. I would switch to another app but I use it as my direct phone number. The app offers sms and phone access and voicemail. I love this. And If you can fix these issues it will be great.” – 3/5 in Play Store

D: “After comparing options for a temporary means of communication when my phone died, I downloaded this app. Honestly, I am pleasantly surprised! Outgoing calls to cellphones appear to be cheaper than to landlines, incoming calls are free, missed calls are shown in notifications. There are various add-on options, such as removal of ads, etc. I highly recommend giving it try. *Just keep in mind, it relies on wifi.*” – 5/5 in Play Store

Ella Angel: “To be fair, the phone calls are clear and go through just fine. You have to buy minutes, but texts are free. The reason for the 2 starts is that the contacts part of my app won't work no matter what I try. I've visited the help pages and followed the instructions, 3x. Still won't work. I put in a work ticket w the company (only way to reach them) and never heard back about it. So, I use a different app for texting, where my contacts are easily accessible, and I use this one for calls. 🤬” – 2/5 in Play Store

I've used the free version, but recently, when trying to receive a 2fa text, I get a message from Text Me, saying I can't receive this type of text unless I pay for premium subscription. I wouldn't mind paying a fair fee, but Text Me is asking for $6.99 per week!! Sorry, but I can't afford that.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Erics Phone: “I'm being billed monthly for this app, yet the app logs me out every few days. Now I go to log in, and the app is giving me an error message about wrong username or password. This username and password are stored by Google and worked in the past. Now I can't use the app. Customer support reached out by email and had me reset the password. I was able to log in after that.

Comments and Reviews from users:

Jamie Hamill: “I've been using this app for a long time across various devices and wish I could rate it higher. What stops me is lately this app has been causing severe battery life and temperature issues. My battery will drain rapidly when I have the app open, in some cases I can literally watch it drop 10-20% in seconds, which may be that device since it's not on the rest. If the app is open, even in the background, my devices will become very warm, sometimes uncomfortable to hold.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Brian Hill: “Since it is a free app, I expect the ads but each and every time you try to close the ad there are multiple X's on the screen and they all take you to the play store or to the ad's website. I'll watch the ad but it should close and return back to the text app afterwards but it doesn't making it very frustrating and causing me to look for other options.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Messages are ideal and easy to communicate with, and the voice mail transcriptions come in handy for when I can't listen to them. Overall a great app and perfect for my needs! Works well online as well.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Chinma Oji: “As per connecting to the destinations, and responding to calling cards when needed immediately are all good in your System Service. Automatically charged your account put one in a difficulty situations sometimes because it disrupt schedule bills. Besides, few of the Customers Service approach are not good. In general. I like Boss Revolution, and have recommended it to so many people, and I will keep recomending it to people due to their fast response. Hence, the best reason why I gave ⭐ four.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Alexius Emejom: “I Love the price and functionality, and how it integrates with my phone book, but the start up is very show. Also after each call, the refreshing speed could be frustrating. I wish those features could be improved. I would also want to see more affordable call plans for Nigerian calls. Overall I would recommend this app. Just rated it a five star.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Manal Sabri: “Every time I launch the app, it persistently requests to upload my entire contact list to the cloud, despite my initial refusal the first time I opened it. It seems to struggle with accepting a 'no' for an answer. This raises significant privacy concerns that need to be addressed immediately.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Nat: “EDIT: The number display issue was fixed very quickly by the developers after I got in touch with support via email. Upgrading my review to 3 stars. Pressing the 'Contact support' button within the app still causes it to crash though. I've sent the developers a stack trace so hopefully this will be fixed as well.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Tracey Marrero: “I really like it! Although whenever I call my friend and play roblox, the call immediately just ends, and then we have to recall. I really would appreciate and be happy if they could fix that and not make the call just end randomly. But anyway, I really like the app! It's really good (except for the automatic ending call thing). 100% would recommend” – 4/5 in Play Store

susann harrison: “I love this app, it helps me talk to my friends without anything happening. The only problem is if i try to send a video from my photos, more often than not the video doesn't send. And when i have do not disturb on i get a notification from justalk after sending something, i think that i have gotten a response but it is just message failed to send. But other than that i do recommend it for your kids or yourself, if you're a kid with your own phone/ device.” – 4/5 in Play Store
