Google has just pushed a new version of Hangouts with version number 2.1 attached. With a whole point update we’d expect to see some notable changes – this one is not disappointing. Google is finally making SMS a bit easier to use, and is adding some completely new features.
Google doesn’t usually include changelogs in the Play Store until after the rollout is complete, but there is a Google+ post on the matter.
