It's really cute and makes me feel a little less dorky for getting into some fandoms.
For reasons that I probably don't have to explain to most of you hippies, I'd like to replace google hangouts messages for the small number of correspondents that I use it with. What is the least bad alternative? I do like the shared desktop / android messages view.
Ideally the software should be usable without mad haxor skillz.

Infant mortality rate for black infants more than twice that for white kids.
