New version of Hangouts for Android
Today we're updating Hangouts for Android, and it's got a lot of the improvements you've been asking for!
- You can see who's reachable right now on Hangouts. Green icons mean they are, and gray icons mean they aren't.
- It's easier to browse your contacts when starting a new Hangout. From top to bottom you'll now see 'People you Hangout with’, 'Suggested People', and 'Other Contacts'.
- Hangout invites are now located above your conversations so they're easier to find.
- Aaaand... you can hide people from the New Hangout screen by pressing on their name for a few seconds and touching 'Hide contact.'
The update is rolling out on Google Play over the next few days (v1.2, http://goo.gl/6Sv8V
