    Just wondering which works better for you in terms of video calls.

    I have had issues with both in that there are times when I call someone who is not in the app they won't get the notification that I am calling them even though they have notifications turned on.

    Anyone else experience this?

    I prefer the versatility of Hangouts.
    You can seamlessly drop in and out of a session using any combinations of mobile devices and desktop computers... even using one Google account for multiple devices simultaneously.

    The ability to conference in a voice phone to a Hangout is amazing
    Also, the ability to broadcast the hangout on a Youtube channel is amazing.

    Hangouts all the way!

    We use Vidia. Hosted in Swiss, without NSA access.
