Google Hangout updateHangouts is about to receive some major upgrades including integrated messaging, GIFs and location sharing. So apparently you will now be only one tap away from informing others of your location. Add to this the multitude of crazy GIFs that you will find there and you might say you are in for a completely new experience. We would like to be the ones to tell you exactly when all of this will be available but unfortunately we cannot. There are still a couple of days to wait until you can get your hands on these.

Nevertheless, Hangouts is already being improved with an addition that will allow the common user to plan and share the contents of a Hangout on Air. One will more or less be able to run the entire HoA. This is done once you go live through the Control Room which allows a person to mute or eject.

DID YOU KNOW: Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

And lastly, due to a very recent improvement, video calls from Hangouts will allow full-screen video calls for any types of devices and they will also make corrections automatically.

And as always, we end with an invite: don't be a stranger and join our community - be a part of the conversation where we help each other out, discuss the latest and greatest, and make the best of our tech.
