Google Hangouts 2.0.122 With SMS Integration Rolling Out to All

google hangouts sms google hangouts sms

The new Google Hangouts with SMS integration, animated GIFs, and location sharing is now rolling out to the masses. First announced last week at a Google+ event, we were told it could be a “few” weeks before the update was officially ready for all. As of this morning it appears as if it is indeed ready since a number of readers have already received it. This is a newer version (2.0.122) than we saw pulled from the Nexus 5 last week, so you’ll definitely want to update. 

Here is the full changelog:

  •  SMS & MMS (Android 4.0+): Send/receive text messages with Hangouts! You can import your existing messages, quickly switch between SMS and Hangouts, and start group MMS conversations
  • Animated GIFs: send animated GIFs, cute kittens and all
  • Location: share a location in your conversations
  • Device, in-call, mood status: share what device you’re on, whether you’re on a call, or your current mood

If you’d like to sideload it, here are some download links.  Download Link [mirror]
