Default [Q] S-View and Default SMS app

With android 4.4 giving the ability to select the default SMS app, could someone with an official s-view cover confirm whether any sms app can give a notification?

On 4.3, the S-View cover would only show an SMS notification if the message was taken through Samsung's messages app.
If kitkat allows you to select your own sms app, could someone confirm if the s-view cover still shows notifications with hangouts handling the sms?

Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere but I couldn't turn up anything in my searches.

Many thanks in advance.

Only shows Samsung's SMS app, Hangouts just has an icon in the corner, I haven't tested any other Apps. So cannot comment on them.

That's disappointing.

Thank you for checking though!

I was hoping Hangouts would work, but figured as this case is made by Samsung they want you to use their app.
