Google Launches ‘Hangouts’ App for iOS, A Unified Messaging Platform

Google, during the Google I/O 2013 keynote, announced a unified platform for its communication services. Before this, the Google’s communication services spread across Gmail, Google+ and Google talk. But from now on, all these communication services will be available as a unified “Hangouts” app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Hangouts brings one-on-one and group conversations to life with photos, emoji, and video calls for free. Connect with friends across computers, phones and tablets.

Here are the features of Hangouts:

  • Group conversations are better than ever. Send photos or emoji, see when people are engaged in the Hangout and message friends anytime, even if they’re not connected right now.
  • Video calls make Hangouts more fun. Turn any conversation into a video call with up to 10 friends.
  • All your friends can use Hangouts. Hangouts works on computers, phones, and tablets, so you can connect with everyone.
  • View and continue your Hangouts across devices.
  • Get notifications just once. After you see an alert, it’ll be removed on other devices.
  • Snooze your notifications if you’d prefer to respond later.
  • See what you talked about in the past, including shared photos and your video call history.
  • Keep a record of any Hangout for just a short period of time by turning history off.
  • View collections of photos shared from each of your Hangouts.
  • Choose from over 850 emoji to express what’s on your mind.

You can download Hangouts for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch from the App Store for free.
