A developer over on XDA recently released an unofficial Hangouts widget to Google Play, helping all of those widget-happy folks who love seeing their messages on the homescreen. The widget is quite simple to explain, as it only displays all of your Hangout threads in a white and green widget, which sits on whichever screen you place it on. For those who were used to having a text messaging widget back before Hangouts handled SMS, then this should be helpful for you.
The app is completely free, and as you’d expect from a new app, the developer is continuing to take in feedback and improve his offering. Here’s hoping we see themes or something along those lines in the future.
Go check it out.
