The newest version of Hangouts for Android will be available for download this week in the Play store. Check out all the improvements below. #googleplusupdate  
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 ( 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 ( this week, so download or update and let us know what you think!

+Chad Bordes I don't think anyone can send MMS over wifi.  As far as I know when you send an MMS from Hangouts to a phone number, it uses your phones native texting ability - which is over the cellular network.  The Hangouts app is just taking over the interface.  

You should be able to send a photo to someone else using the Hangouts app, over wifi
