With the new update, Google Hangouts promises to be sleeker, faster and easier to stay connected with the people you love with an all new compose button.
The first party apps on Android has been receiving consequent updates from time to time. Many of them have already been updated with a material design to match Lollipop 5.0. Google Hangouts 4.0 joins the fray by adopting this amazing design which makes it look sophisticated yet simple at the same time.
Microsoft pioneered the flat design which was quickly adopted by Apple and Google. It is great for users because it reduces stress on the hardware and ensures all apps, programs are readily accessible without lag.
When we tested the new Hangouts, it was responsive and fluid similar to many other apps that have been updated to meet the Lollipop criteria. With the new compose button, you can start a new conversation or create a group. It’s quite similar to the Android version of Gmail app. The icon is located on the bottom right corner.
The button easily allows you to find people using contacts list and an improved sharing ensures photos, videos, location among everything else can be shared in an instance. Google says that they have fixed a lot of bugs to make the messaging app look and perform faster. On flagships the performance may not be evident, but on phones like Moto G and Asus Zenfone 2 it is quick to respond and also saves battery power.
