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!

I'm a fan; would buy again, and I can't think of another piece of electronics this well thought out. (Thanks, Carl!)

I'd love to see Odyssey vs a Tesla X.  (I fit in an Odyssey, but not a Model S.  I may fit in an X, and would love to have some data on TCO there!)

MapReduce functions written in shell. Initially sounds horrifying, but might not be all that bad.

I've only gotten takeout, but it's a welcome departure from super greasy big chain pizza. Lots of sports memorabilia, and might be a nice place to watch a game.
