Hangouts 2.1 for Android: SMS improvements and a homescreen widget

Today we’re launching the newest version of Hangouts for Android, rolling out to the Play store (http://goo.gl/6Sv8V) over the next few days. Highlights include:

- Merged conversations: SMS and Hangout conversations with the same recipient are now combined into a single conversation. You can control whether you want to send a message via Hangouts or SMS with the flip of a switch, and different message types will be easy to tell apart in the conversation. Of course, you can always merge and unmerge conversations if you’d like.

- Simplified contact list: now there’s two main sections in contacts — People you Hangout With, and Phone Contacts — making it simpler to navigate, and easier to use for SMS.

- Homescreen widget: add the Hangouts widget to your homescreen for quick access to your recent conversations.

- Performance improvements: today’s update includes better quality video calls, as well as improved SMS and MMS reliability.

The new version will be available in the Play store (http://goo.gl/6Sv8V) this week, so download or update and let us know what you think!

Love what our partners at +Good Morning America are doing with hangouts: they're inviting G+ followers to join them in conversations, which they're broadcasting onto TV and onto the +ABC News Jumbotron in Times Square. Here's a view from the control room at GMA, where the magic happens.

Broadcasting Hangouts On Air across the web with +Post ads 

From world leaders such as President Obama and Chancellor Merkel connecting with constituents, to fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg debuting a collection for fans, Hangouts On Air give you a new way to have meaningful conversations with your audience. 

Last week, we announced the full availability of +Post ads to all advertisers with at least 1000+ followers (http://goo.gl/SzmbMU). Brands can now grow the audience of their Hangouts On Air by promoting them across the web with +Post ads. People can participate with your Hangout directly from the ad by engaging in Q&A, leaving a comment, or sharing your broadcast. 

See how +ASOS used +Post ads to reach more fashion fans before, during, and after their most recent Hangout on Air.
