Many bloggers are bashing Google because of the Hangouts integration. Most of the things I read talk about Hangouts not only replacing the old SMS app, but the contacts list as well. The result is that you will reach Google friends only through the Hangouts app, not through contacts, and the people you chat with most will likely appear in duplicate inside the Hangouts app. Moreover, Hangouts tries to get users to share their SMS and MMS content, along with their current location, with G+.

Luckily, Hangouts can be replaced with a 3rd party app, although there will be a need for a good 3rd party app for the contacts.
