Google Hangouts will Soon To Get SMS,MMS Intergration
Google Hangouts will soon get the SMS and MMS Integration. The chat platform has so far only unified Google plus Messenger and Google Talk, leaving out of Messaging and Voice, According to the tech bog, Android Police, Google Hangouts will receive the update in the upcoming version 1.3. The report further states that Google Hangouts will also feature video-sharing option with the new update.
However, there is no report of voice integration in to the messaging apps so far. Messages sent via SMS will appear as “Via SMS” next to the timestamp. Users can request delivery reports for SMSes sent as well as opt out of Hangouts through SMS.
One of the major complaints with the Google Hangouts app on Android is that it doesn’t integrate with the other built-in messaging apps on Android. This leaves with not one but three messaging apps when you first start the device, Hangouts, Google+ Messenger and the standard Messages app for SMS and MMS.
