    Default Google Hangouts iOS App Updated With Support for Links, Invites, Improvements


    Google has issued an update to their new Google Hangouts application for iOS, which the company launched just in the middle of May, bringing the application to version 1.1.1. Google Hangouts offers a way for people to communicate, supporting one-on-one chatting, group chatting, hundreds of emoji, and more.

    The update to Google Hangouts adds many improvements to the application, including the ability to tap on links to open them in Mobile Safari. With this feature, you won’t have to copy and paste links anymore to get to the Web site your friend sends to you.

    The update also gives you the ability to invite new friends to join you in Google Hangouts. Seeing as how the application was just released, not everyone is aware of its existence. So now, you can just send an invite to your friend via SMS (text message) and you can try to persuade them to join you. Google Hangouts doesn't cost anything to use like some SMS plans do, so it's a good alternative for some.

    Google Hangouts has even received a new feature that will plan in-app sounds when you receive messages from the people you’re communicating with. Improvements to badge count behavior, the network connection bar, and support for iOS 6.0 have also been added on top of some bug fixes.

    Existing users can download the Google Hangouts for free from the Updates tab in the App Store. Alternatively, new users can download the latest version of Google Hangouts from this App Store link for free.

    This update sucks. The badges were annoying before and now they NEVER go away.

    That, plus the in-app notification noises stop music playback from apps like Soundcloud! I already logged a support case with them about it.

    Annoying.

    TEST YOUR APPS, GOOGLE.

    I'm not sure if they pushed out another update in the past few hours but my badge is finally gone. I'm on iOS 7 so it might have auto updated. --EDIT-- Never-mind, they are back.

    They go away after a while if you go back to the conversation list and pull to refresh.

    They went away for a while and then came back without me getting any new messages
