Install Hangout and Talk app side-by-side

I rolled back to Talk from Hanout app.

I wonder is there a way to install Google Talk as well as Hangout apps at the same time in same device..I've Talk as stock app came with my device and now, if I can somehow install hangout app (from an APK available from somewhere) to my SD card (or even internally, if it is possible), it would be great!

Have you tried downloading the app and changing its name so it's not the same as GTalk?

I'd rather change the name of gtalk. This way I can keep hangouts installed via playstore. So any new updates that may fix the issues that bother me gets installed easily.

I've an unrooted device in which Talk app came with the stock ROM. So I don't think I will be allowed to edit the name of Talk app. Have you infact tried what you have said and found it working?

Get the talk app, change its package name and install it alongside the one you already have. Then update the original one
You will then have talk and the original hangouts at the same time without root

I already have talk installed..now when I try to install Talk from an apk file by renaming it to Talktest, still it says that this will replace the system app Talk..which means I will end up having only 1 talk app and not 2, right?

Upload the talk apk, I'll do the rest for you, all you'll need to do is install it afterwards

    I don't see why everyone wants to have a list of contacts that are "online". Your contact has the app open or not, either way you "text" them and it'll be delivered to their phone, just like sms. It doesn't matter if they're "online" (have the app open?) or not. If you're chatting back and forth with someone, you can tell from the little icon if they're viewing the conversation currently or not, and that's all you really need. I hope they don't add a list like that, it defeats the feeling of this being a texting app rather than a 90's chatting program. SMS support is coming btw ( http://phandroid.com/2013/05/16/google-hangouts-sms ), and having a list of online contacts feels even more out of place then.
