No one seems to be talking about this little nugget:

Receive and reply to group MMS messages in Hangouts using Google Voice. 

Ummm...!

Here you go, +Ara Wagoner.

I wonder if this will come to Android?
The new "Disney Gif" iOS 8 keyboard makes it easier than ever before to send Disney-themed GIFs to everyone you know.

Yay communication!
 
Hi everyone,

The launch of Hangouts 4.0 on Android is going to be an amazing one for Google Voice users.

Being able to use group SMS has been a top feature request for Google Voice users for years, and we're happy to announce the first part of this feature is launching shortly across Hangouts, enabling you to receive and reply to group SMS messages from your Google Voice number, if you've integrated Google Voice messaging with Hangouts. You'll be able to receive and reply to group SMS messages not only in Hangouts on Android, but also in Hangouts on the web and iOS as well. Starting a new group MMS (compose) isn't part of today's launch but we're working to bring it to our users in a future release.

In order to roll this out we need to wait for Google Hangouts 4.0 on Android to be fully released to everyone. After that's happened we'll turn on this feature across Android, web and iOS. I know many of you are eagerly awaiting this launch -- don't worry if you get the latest Hangouts 4.0 and this hasn't started working yet, it's coming within days!

Now that's what I'm talking about.
 
New UI? Who cares. Because GROUP MMS WITH GOOGLE VOICE IN HANGOUTS!

Now updated with material design, Hangouts has a new look and feel: items respond...

It's not their style to release anything half baked.

I'm definitely going to have to disagree with you there. Hangouts / Google Voice integration is still half-baked after nearly a year, considering group MMS still doesn't work properly.
Can you believe we're having this conversation again? So soon after iOS scored the new 4.0 makeover, now it appears Android users are getting another jab to the pride. All joking and silly Photoshopping aside, this is gett...

I changed my mind - I'm migrating to Telegram after all. It's much, much faster, and has more features overall. No voice / video chat is a shame, but I think it'll be okay.
 
So I discovered a pretty neat messaging app / service called Telegram. I'm not planning to move away from Hangouts anytime soon, but I have to admit, Google has some catching up to do in terms of some of the offered features.

Reminds me of that one movie about deleting something off of the cloud lol. This makes you wonder, do you REALLY feel better knowing your stuff is on another person's computer?
