We have seen Google update many of their apps already to support the last version Android 7.1 Nougat, just recently Hangouts received a new update to version 14 bringing some pretty cool new features.
- Starting a new group chat has been rolled into “New conversation”
- The top area of “New conversation” screen is now sticky
- “People & Options” have been split into 2 separate items now – “People” and “Options”
- “Archive,” “Delete,” and the “History” toggle have been moved into the conversation’s Options menu
One of those new features are to create shortcuts for starting a new voice, video and text chats which can make you use with Hangouts a bit better.
Google is rolling out Hangouts version 14.0.136618992 via the Play Store
