Google Fail: Hangouts has zero support for non-photo files for sharing

Google Talk was awesome. I could practically drag and drop files in the chat windows for quick sharing. Google Hangouts removed that feature and is yet to get it. I can only share photos which are also completely destroyed during the share process as Google resizes them randomly to pretty small sizes.

It’s a shame that Google dropped the p2p model for file sharing and ended up using my Google Storage for the same photos. If they had to do that, I do not understand why they could not use Google Drive for the storage for sharing files?
