Looking for Chat Program

Google Hangouts is leaving, and we are not going to want to use separate programs to do all the things Hangouts did (text, calls).

I am looking for personal suggestions on a replacement text and calls (all-in-one basically) program (and has to allow image transfers as we need that) that can be used on Windows and Android (whether via web browser or program) and (yuk) Apple devices, for however they do their crap. But, I also need one that I can easily export all chat (or a date range of it) into readable text format.

I have tried many programs, and countless more. Time consuming. Skype be great, if it allowed exporting text easily.

I know this board may reach .071% of the human population. So, any suggestions?

Thanks.

You say you have tried many programs and countless more, so to be fair and stop folks' wasting their time and yours, you really should list the ones you have tried.

Here's a few that I can think of...

WhatsApp
Telegram
Duo
Signal
Pidgin
Viber

Here's a list of "best" Chat Apps for 2021...

Yup, tried them all.

Signal was interesting, but did not have exactly what I needed.

Wasting time, eh? Well, thanks for the response still.

Regarding the wasting time, you just proved my point by saying you've already tried all the ones that I listed. That's why I said to list all the ones you have tried. But hey, good luck finding one that suits your needs.
