Hangouts, Google's messaging app, has received
an update for iOS devices. Hangouts allows users to send and receive messages, photos and more, and make video and voice calls with a group or one-on-one. Hangouts v2.5.0 features new sticker packs, and improved video call experience alongside miscellaneous bug fixes.
Finding friends and family on Hangouts is easier when searching by phone number, and status messages are now available. The user's location can be shared in one click with new "smart sharing suggestions," suitable for responding to friends who ask where one is at that moment. Free to download, Hangouts requires iOS 7.0 or later.
