Team review

" The video chat by Google. "

The application has not yet detailed description, however the team assigned the note of 7 / 10. This note is based on the following criteria: Quality, Usefulness, Ease of Use, Privacy Concerns of user data (depending on the permissions required)..

The app is compatible from version 2.1 of Android. Any supperior OS version will support it.

Its weight is light enough, less than ten MB (8 MB exactly) are needed to save to their device and use it.

Its number of downloads in the Android Market (Google Play) makes it an extremely popular application and rightly so. More than a million users are using it on mobile or on touch pad.

Positive review delivers what it promises by anonym

Positive review BEST APP. EVER! LOVE THE CONCEPT! by anonym

Negative review Infuse-ginger Brag bread by anonym
Blank screen my girlfriend added it on her iPhone 4 didn't work either. 1/5
Neutral review Call done through speaker, no privacy by anonym
Tested 1.0.1 with Xperia Sola and 2.3.7, sound is going through the speaker, even when headset is connected - still uses speaker. This is inconvenient when calling from public places. Video quality is acceptable, sound has a little lag but still acceptable Giving 3/5 stars. I hope this app is going to be improved, I definitely need this. Will come back later ;) 3/5
Positive review Back Off by anonym
How could you possibly rate this any lower than a 3, a beta app that allows dad reliable chat that's instant, I'm using this in my business and saving$$$$$$ Thanks guys, I'm sure the couple of minor insignificant bumps will be iron'd out. Awsome idea and job. 5/5
Negative review Poor network connection? by anonym
Every time I try to use this it says poor network connection. I have an LG Gx2. If this doesn't even work with the phone that Google puts it's name on (literally, it says "with Google" on the back) then it's a pretty poor beta. Granted, I know it's only in beta, but my gf is always trying to get me on vtok with her iphone, but it will never work on mine. It's a problem when a Google product works better on iphones than on andriod devices! It works great for her, I wish it would work great for me! I would use this all the time!! 1/5
Positive review Don't give a bad rating cuz you don't know how to use it. by anonym
Don't listen to every negative comment on here. Take the time to figure out your contacts. And about the signing out thing- gmail is always signed in (if you have it set up that way-default is always signed in) which means this stays on. You can change it. I was frustrated with this app at first but I was determined to figure it out. Make sure your google contacts are set up as 'my contacts'. Once you AND THEY have it installed and logged in, it works! Video is slow and grainy but I am so happy to have it. 4/5
Negative review POS, shame on developers by anonym
There is no interface on this app whatsoever. Only login/password and then nothing. Can't even exit app as it wants non existent sign out button. Finally via PC added some contacts, when PC calls tablet you answer the call, but PC don't see call pickup and keeps ringing. Only way to establish call to have contact added from PC, then make a call by clicking on contact name. But then video came out on the PC turned 90 degrees. Very funny. Not. This goes to trash bin and I go back to Skype. 1/5
Negative review by anonym
Honestly seems like its trying to steal info the way you type in your gmail user and password. Sound didn't work many failed tries.NOT OWNED BY GOOGLE 1/5
Neutral review works better on iphone by anonym
I tried this app before on an iPhone. You can videochat from the phone to pc and viceversa. I expected the same quality on the android. Nevertheless, is very laggy and pixeled. But since this is a beta app I hope it improves over the time. You need to make it as nice and good as it is for the iPhone. 3/5
Positive review by anonym
works well, but uses an unbelievable amount of battery in background and can' t be killed nor closed properly. had to uninstall because of this. 4/5
Negative review Spyware by anonym
I downloaded this app and then I had an unauthorized user try to open my gmail account a few hours later. Thankfully google blocked the attempt because they tried to access my account via an ip from a completely different city. Avoid this app. The google made app offers video chat anyway. 1/5
Positive review Work on samsung galaxy S by anonym
Works well but must be stopped form background execution when stopped to save battery. In comparison Gtalk crash immediately when I call a friend in video conference.... 4/5
Negative review by anonym
Installed on my Samsung Infuse, and it doesn't let me use the front facing camera. It seems like everyone is having this problem. Please fix it. 2/5
Neutral review nice quality but uses lots of memory and power by anonym
I am using this application on my Samsung Galaxy ACE. Its quality is good but the problem is it consumes lots of mobile memory and power while running and hangs the system. And it not is not smooth in connecting using google email id. On wifi also i have to try 3-4 times to connect. 3/5
Positive review by anonym
Works great! A few bugs but still great! But sucks battery dry even when u close it down. It keeps running in background. Needs proper exit button. 5/5
Negative review Works..........almost. by anonym
Installed on EVO 4G. I made accounts on my computer and Toshiba Thrive tablet. Called both. Video loaded but the ringer kept ringing. No way to answer the call. Eventually it hangs up. I then called the EVO from the computer and tablet and the same thing happened. Video starts, I can switch from front to rear camera, but it just keeps ringing. There's no way to answer the call. 2/5
Negative review by anonym
this application consumes a lot of battery even if I sign out. I am left with only one option to stop it forcefully from battery management option. 1/5
Positive review Works but quality could be improved by anonym
It actually works on my gTablet! However the video quality of the person I am chatting with isn't the greatest, probably because its not optimized for a tablet screen. As for people not seeing contacts, they only show up if they are available on GTalk and can voice and/or video chat. And there is a button to change which camera is selected (front or rear), don't know if that solves the camera problem or if its a different issue. 4/5
Negative review 17MB Really? by anonym
Like most of Google's new apps, a huge storage hog. Might be worth it if it worked well. Sadly, it doesn't. 2/5
Positive review Evo 4G by anonym
Great start, I was able to get it up and running with calls to my dad's Evo and to my PC. It needs move to SD though, cause the app is pretty big. And I would like to see all my contacts, even if they are offline. 5 stars when all of those are fixed. 4/5
Negative review Just too harsh on battery. by anonym
app uses too much batt when not logged in or in use. Fcing it helps but it will open itself back up. I literally can see the percent drop on my batt. 2/5
Neutral review by anonym
Front camera doesn't work on Vzw thunderbolt... only back camera so can't see when talking. fix and will give 5 stars. 3/5
Negative review Does not work on my galaxy note 2 by anonym
After install I log in using google account info and a contact list shows up completely blank white screen. only options are to log out info and search. When I search, get another completely white screen with search results at the top.. oh well. 1/5
Neutral review with EVO 4G by anonym
They siad my voice to other person not great sounded robotic.. And my last call the receiving photo kept breaking up. I am still trying. 3/5
Negative review Ok... by anonym
Every time I try to open a video chat, my device crashes and restarts. Voice chat is fine, but I am upset about the inability to video chat. 2/5
Positive review Will be obsolete once Gingerbread comes out by anonym
This is a fairly good app on my EVO but since Gingerbread has this functionality built in this app wont be necessary. This app is good for Iphone/Ipad users to be able to video chat with Android/Gtalk users. 4/5
Positive review But bad by anonym
It's free and it basically works, so that deserves a lot in my opinion, considering that you get to video chat, but it won't access my front cam. 4/5
Negative review No contacts list by anonym
No contacts apear in my list!!! I cant make calls only receving .. my freind has the same problem with our galaxy s3 The search botton dont work either!!! 2/5
Positive review Works on Samsung Charge by anonym
Charge doesn't have video chat in google talk. Since my friends use google talk and not skype or other stuff I needed google talk to work. This got the job done (running a 2.3.4 ROM on my Charge). Even over 3g :) Havent had any battery problems at all so far 4/5
Negative review Signed out, still kills battery by anonym
My phone has been unplugged for 3 hours 30 minutes. Vtok accounts for 28% of the battery usage in that time, and it isn't even logged in. This is unacceptably high battery use, there's no reason for an app, even logged in, to use this much battery, when the phone is idle. Logged out it should have *no* use because it shouldn't be running. 1/5
Neutral review by anonym
Works but image is sideways on Viewsonic gTablet. Attempting to use Sign Out button does so but immediately logs back in. Had to kill task :( 3/5
Negative review Not sure by anonym
I have 2 different videos on my phone.I would like to be able to see the person im chatting with and them see me. I'm not sure if it worked on mine 2/5
Negative review not by Google by anonym
i believe this is a spyware. check you battery consumption and you will find this app is eating it up. because is constantly sending. i hardly ever used it and that to me is an indicator of something fishy about this app. removing. it never worked properly anyways 1/5
Negative review by anonym
Won't even should me my contacts I try to start it and all I got is a white screen ...this sucks ...a...s...s.. Junk ....HTC thunderbolt. Carlos mnh 1/5
Negative review Doesn't run in background mode by anonym
Using Samsung Galaxy S2, in the overview description says it runs in background mode so you never miss a call. But there's only an exit option which requires you to sign-out from the app. Then gtalk contacts can't see your video icon anymore. Even after exit, with no video support, it's still somehow running and draining the batteries. 1/5
Neutral review by anonym
Needs to be integrated into google voice app. Why have two separate apps, also, video preview screen only shows that portion if screen, not entire sec 3/5
Neutral review needs work by anonym
i don't have a front facing camera and the 'voice call' engaged my rear camera regardless. my screen would only display what my camera saw and there was no way to interact with vtok from there and no way to end the call quickly or at all. there needs to be an option to only use voice. judging by the descrition alone with exception to the word "beta" i thought with vtok this would be less awkward. 3/5
Negative review Vtok formaly google Video chat by anonym
Using tmobile s4 cant sign in. last time years ago I tryed it on Verizon s1 3-4 years ago no luck then just now. com on Google remove it from app store not usable on devices 2/5
