Looks great. Add a lock screen option and I'm all over this.

Lookout flags this as "riskware".

In the next version, I'll make it more clear that only new notifications are shown

It is... unfortunately I'm not able to launch a specific conversation. Hangouts has little to no api for third-party devs...

This is most likely because it has the notification listening service. But notice that the app asks for no permissions so it can literally do nothing with the information it receives from this.

Service Version 2.0 Released!
2.0:
- Lock Screen Widget
- Redesign with transparency and new icon
- Configure transparency for each widget
- New Dark Mode
- bugfixes

If the widget stops working after the update, please readd it. I am aware of an issue where the widget may lose recent conversations, this has been fixed for future updates...

I just wanted to say thanks for all your work on this app!

I read a bunch of people's reviews on the Play Store saying it doesn't work (because they obviously didn't read the description and don't know that new notifications must arrive before any Hangouts will display).

Maybe there could be a pop-up, or a fake hangout message in the app to explain this the first time it runs until it starts populating? This could possibly eliminate all of these 1 star reviews by people who can't read hahahaha.

this looks great. I am on 4.2.2 on an HTC One X, is there any way to get this onto 4.2 at all?

Given it's just reading notifications to get the info? (or is that the limitation there)

Awesome work Hope google is copying it for their own widget

Yes unfortunately, the limitation is that reading notifications is limited to just 4.3, but I am working on a general SMS version, which won't be able to read hangouts messages, but should work for many more Android versions...
