That said, there's no compelling reason at all to go to Allo or Duo. I really need a cross platform solution that works on all my devices (including a full web browser).
Wire is edging out WhatsApp for me when it comes to personal messaging... it's got some great features but not ideal when switching devices. And my SMS still go to hangouts (at least I get them on the web).
It was so great when everyone was on hangouts (and it worked).
And I'm so glad we've got Slack for work!
Any other solutions or suggestions for me?
