Download Google Hangouts for Android and iOS
Published on May 16th, 2013
Google has recently released a new unified messaging service for Android and iOS devices, called Hangouts. Just hours after its official announcement from Google I/O 2013, Google Hangouts is now available for download for Android and iOS devices. This new messaging app is somewhat similar to a Facebook messenger app is, but comes with its own flavoring. Hangouts will replace Google+ Messenger, Google+ video and Google Talk, since all of these will be integrated into this app. You can download Google Hangouts from the links below.
Since Google Hangouts is a synchronized chat service, it will work on PC, laptops, Android devices, iPhones and iPads. You can also share photos, emoji, and do video calls aside from chatting. The best part is, it’s free!
Google Hangouts Features
- Say more with photos and emoji.
- See when people are together in Hangouts, when they’re typing, or whether they’ve seen your message.
- Turn any conversation into a video call with up to 10 friends.
- Message friends anytime, even if they’re not connected right now.
- Use Hangouts on computers, Android and Apple devices.
- Hangouts stay in sync across devices so you can start or continue them anywhere.
- Choose from hundreds of emoji to help you make your point
- See what you talked about in the past, including shared photos and your video call history.
- Get notifications just once. Once you see an alert, you won’t see repeats on your computer or other Android devices.
- View collections of photos shared from each of your Hangouts.
- Snooze notifications at times when you’d prefer to be undisturbed by alerts.
However, if you frequently used the “invisible” status, like in Google Talk, Hangouts doesn’t have this feature, yet. Meaning your always visible.
Google Hangouts will compete with other popular messaging apps like Viber, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and others. But perhaps they made this unified and multi-platform app to combat BlackBerry’s BBM that is now available for Android and iOS users as well.
