    Does such a thing exist? I was happily using "imo" until late last year, at which point they decided to force a new "imo account" on everyone. I've been using the official Hangouts client in the interim but it's become clear that Google has no intention of fixing any of the bugs in it.

    I've tried a few other clients but haven't had much luck. Is anyone aware of a client that actually works?

    Thanks :)

    I've been trying to figure out what to do ever since google went full evil in announcing it was shutting off Talk and banning third party development for Voice. It's why I left android for starters. 99% of the masses have no idea just how bad things are getting on the net. Hopefully an open cross platform solution that one of the giant corps can't buy and destroy will be developed someday. Something like P2P but without the bandwidth and battery draining implications of p2p.

    Hangouts got a major new version update in February and the reviews seem to be quite positive overall, so perhaps Google had some intentions of doing something with it, just took some time to do it.
