Default Uncompressed mms

Is there a way to use Google hangouts SMS and have the pics sent not be compressed. So if I take a 2 meg. Pic it will send the 2 meg pic Instead of compressing it?

Yup, the app does enable you to send uncompressed mms, amongst a host of other features.

Some use it as their daily driver for mms instead of the stock app.

Sure, just go into settings and change your default mms app...

Hangouts does not compress mms. The default and only setting is to send mms as-is, uncompressed further by the app. On your end, it's going out in whatever compression was originally in the file (jpg, &c).
