Google Hangouts updated with improved layout and subtle enhancements
Google Hangouts for Android is getting an update today, bringing about a handful of user-requested features. The layout changes only slightly but it looks more intuitive; starting conversations is easier than ever.
- You can see who’s reachable right now on Hangouts. Green icons mean they are, and gray icons mean they aren’t.
- It’s easier to browse your contacts when starting a new Hangout. From top to bottom you’ll now see ‘People you Hangout with’, ‘Suggested People’, and ‘Other Contacts’.
- Hangout invites are now located above your conversations so they’re easier to find.
- Aaaand… you can hide people from the New Hangout screen by pressing on their name for a few seconds and touching ‘Hide contact.’
