You must first install Google Hangouts! :)

2.0:
- Lock Screen Widget
- Redesign with transparency and new icon

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...

Thanks for sharing. If you're taking feature requests, a transparency option and making it. available as a lockscreen widget would be amazing.

Installed!

It shows up as #9 on the list when searching "hangouts widget"

Anyways, it's visually appealing and I like how the plus sign takes you directly to current messages or to create a new one directly as well.

I'll see if any new messages appear on the widget since you say it doesn't show old messages

when I install the widget I can't send any messages in Hangouts anymore. It will just try and retry to send forever. Need to uninstall widget and reboot the phone to get it working again.

Does it support lockscreen widgets?

Downloading :)

I'm working on this for an update :)





Are we maybe one step closer to a quick reply type pop up?


Maybe... The thing is I can't actually interface with hangouts so I would have to fake the input needed to send the message...

Thanks, I'll see what I can do :)




I really like the widget, but why have it its own padding?
It don't fit in my concept ;)


I'll look into it, this isn't by design...




Device not compatible :( at&t s4..


Do you have 4.3+?

This app is completely independent from hangouts and uses notifications to get the messages, so it shouldn't alter your ability to send messages at all... It is more than likely just coincidence that it is working now and not then.

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

    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.

    Sweet pm on the way!

    Awesome! Added to the OP. In the next version, I'll hopefully allow users to control transparency and tint color...

    Can you add an option to have shortcut to specific people in addition to widget?

    Thanks,
    G

    Maybe... I'll look into it.

    Widget doesn't seem to load current conversations already open in hangouts.

    Yes this is a system limitation. As there is no Hangouts api, I have to get the conversations via the notifications.

    I love the usefulness of this, but would love to have it available for the lockscreen. Hopefully this is something planned for an update.

    Sure is :)

    The widget is great! Would have preferred the usual hangouts icon though...

    Is this something that is okay to do? I don't want to get removed from the play store because of something silly like this... In a future version I am going to allow for different icons though...

    Made a black/tinted version but want permission first before I share with everyone. Would that be cool OP?

    Absolutely! Thanks for that, if you wanted to also send it to me, that would be great. I'm working on allowing more customization and one of my ideas was to allow users to choose different tints...
