Google's Hangouts Application for iOS Updated With New Statuses
On Thursday, following Google’s update to the Google Drive
application for iOS, Google has also issued an update to its Hangouts chat and calling application for iOS, bringing the application up to version 1.3.1.
With Thursday’s update, Google Hangouts now gives users the ability to take advantage of new statuses to let friends know the current condition of the user.
Those new statuses include the ability for friends to know what device you're currently on, whether or not you're in the middle of a Google Hangouts call, and your current mood. These statuses can be useful for friends so they know if you're busy or not, or whether or not you'll be able to get right back to them.
The update also adds in some bug fixes to improve the application's stability and reliability.
Existing users of the Google Hangouts application will find the update under the Updates tab in the App Store application. Alternatively, you can download the latest version of Google Hangouts for free from this App Store link
. If you've never used Google Hangouts before, all you need is a free Google Account to get started.
