Google updates Hangouts app for iOS with video messages and stickers

Posted Feb 28, 2014

Google has announced version 2.0 of the Hangouts app for iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch media players. Hangouts has been updated with a new user interface that is optimized for the larger iPad screens.

The Hangouts app on the iPad will have a two-pane view with contacts on the left and conversations on the right. The new Hangouts app also has stickers, which are large-sized emojis.

The ability to send Video Messages are not video calls. They are more like Vine videos because they are 10 seconds in length.

You can send your current location with just a few taps as well. The Hangouts 2.0 app for iOS contains several new fixes and performance improvements.
