Google+ Hangouts for the Android platform has been updated with ver 2.1.075 with new features and updates.
Features in ver 2.1.075 (via Google+ post)
Today we’re launching the newest version of Hangouts for Android, rolling out to the Play store over the next few days. Highlights include:
– Merged conversations: SMS and Hangout conversations with the same recipient are now combined into a single conversation. You can control whether you want to send a message via Hangouts or SMS with the flip of a switch, and different message types will be easy to tell apart in the conversation. Of course, you can always merge and unmerge conversations if you’d like.
– Simplified contact list: now there’s two main sections in contacts — People you Hangout With, and Phone Contacts — making it simpler to navigate, and easier to use for SMS.
– Homescreen widget: add the Hangouts widget to your homescreen for quick access to your recent conversations.
– Performance improvements: today’s update includes better quality video calls, as well as improved SMS and MMS reliability.
The new version will be available in the Play store this week, so download or update and let us know what you think!
Although the changes are rolling out in few days, you may try to update the hangouts app from your phone and may get the updates immediately.
