Default [2.3+][APP][apk]Google Hangouts

Quote:
NOTE: If you aren't yet able to install Hangouts on your phone or tablet, or the Play Store "Open" button takes you to the old Talk app, hang tight, we are rolling out Hangouts to everyone over the course of several days. Rest assured Hangouts will be available soon for all Android 2.3+ devices, tablets included!

Quote:
Hangouts brings one-on-one and group conversations to life with photos, emoji, and video calls for free. Connect with friends across computers, Android and Apple devices. Brought to you by Google.
Quote:
● Say more with photos and emoji.
● See when people are together in Hangouts, when they’re typing, or whether they’ve seen your message.
● Turn any conversation into a video call with up to 10 friends.
● Message friends anytime, even if they're not connected right now.
● Use Hangouts on computers, Android and Apple devices.
More Hangouts awesomeness:
Quote:
● Hangouts stay in sync across devices so you can start or continue them anywhere.
● Choose from hundreds of emoji to help you make your point
● See what you talked about in the past, including shared photos and your video call history.
● Get notifications just once. Once you see an alert, you won’t see repeats on your computer or other Android devices.
● View collections of photos shared from each of your Hangouts.
● Snooze notifications at times when you’d prefer to be undisturbed by alerts.
Notes:
● Unlike Google Talk, Hangouts does not support "invisible" status.

Yes of course, try it - it'll replace the old gtalk app though

I probably deserve to get flamed for this one but....

Is there an indicator somewhere that tells you if the person you are sending a message to is actively logged in? I used to use the chat feature built into Gmail and it would place a green dot next to the people who were online.

Not really. Some people are saying that the greyed out contacts are the offline ones, but comparing between 'hangouts' on my tablet and gtalk on my phone, that doesn't appear to be accurate.

Pretty annoyed by this app. Talk was perfect, and it was a staple of both the desktop and mobile Google experience. And now they've stripped it of some of its most useful features.

It reeks of yet another effort to push us all onto their ****ty social network.

Yeah I agree with you on that one, everything is moving towards Google+.

Which, in all honesty, wouldn't be so bad. The G+ app is really slick, just not much use for me since most of my friends are using other social media sites.

Its their new approach they aren't gonna change it. Some kind of watermarks appear based on the level of activity - though i haven't figured out how that works yet

I updated it successfully but just cant sign in it failing over & over again, does it not work on 2.3.6 gingerbread?
Asus Zenfone 6, intel z2580 CPU @2gHz with 2gb Ram / Fw 1.18.40.11
If this helps Pressing the thanks button is better than saying thanks in the post alone.
