    Finally they replied today saying the api changes for hangouts don't affect their app... Still missing!
    Hopefully it will be back soon. As for now I'm using IM+. It does the trick but it's lacking a lot of functionality.

    Posting for finality I guess

    Dear user,
    We are very sorry, but we have to report that Attractor Mobile Software applications are now unavailable in the Windows Store. Due to this situation, we can no longer provide the support for these apps.
    Our team is actively working to find the solution of the problem.
    And we recommend you to join Apps4Store community on Facebook to be aware of current information on this subject.

    Was that from the Windows Store or from Attractor?

    Well they are active on their facebook page


    I wonder why Microsoft leaves developers questioning... It seems common that when something is taken off the store, that it's hard to get back in or even get a feedback as to what, why or how to get back in.

    Granted it is only one side of the story.

    They should have known that their app was about to be removed. All they needed to do was to provide an update which would rename the app, but they didn't do that, and now they have problems.

    Still, it would be lame if it was that hard to get this app back to the Store, but I still blame the developers. If, on the other hand, what they say is true, then we should see an article at Windows Central about that, as that is unacceptable Microsoft to make bringing back an app so hard. Especially considering the app gap issue.

    I got an email this morning from Attractor recommending gMessenger Pro as a Hangouts alternative. Sadly the link in the email doesn't work now, and it looks like gMessenger has also gotten pulled from the store.

    Installing and logging in is not an issue for me. I can not send a message, is all, with two factor on. Dev asking me to disable two factor.

    I can send messages, so I don't know what the problem is. Hopefully, the developer will improve that with an upcoming update.

    I hope so too. Do you have Google voice with your hangouts?

    Just grabbed gMessenger too. Thanks @Jackalito for the tip that the link was working again.

    Confirming that I have 2-factor authentication as well, and I was able to log in and send messages. Good luck getting it to work @zocster

    I installed this Tuesday. But nobody on my account even uses hangouts. It worked well while I used it, but I do not understand why it always references my outlook account and not my Gmail. I sign in with the Gmail. The outlook.com account is not even a registered google account. Even with client for hangouts it did this. Finally the developer stopped asking me to troubleshoot. No issues at all just thought it was odd my Gmail account no where in the interface.

    I need to reiterate, the gmail based messages sends and receives well, but when you start wanting to use your G Voice number, that's where the problem is.

    It doesn't send only receives G Voice messages, it used to work.

    No one finds it's horribly slow? Just like Client for Hangouts?

    Noticed that too, but there was an update yesterday. hmmm.... I wonder if IM+ will break around April when google said their API gets locked down or something.
