Finally the new Google Hangouts with SMS integration is rolling out! - You can also download APK file if you don't want to wait

So now the new Google Hangouts is finally rolling out in Google Play Store! As you maybe remember, I posted about it the same day Google announced it, and I also provided some download links from a ripped version from the Nexus 5, but that version had some problems with MMS and video chats.

It will probably have a slow rollout, but you can download the APK file from here, if you don’t want to wait for your update.

Here is the official change log:

  • SMS & MMS (Android 4.0+): Send/receive text messages with Hangouts! You can import your existing messages, quickly switch between SMS and Hangouts, and start group MMS conversations
  • Animated GIFs: send animated GIFs, cute kittens and all
  • Location: share a location in your conversations
  • Device, in-call, mood status: share what device you’re on, whether you’re on a call, or your current mood
