Google has updated the Hangouts app for iOS with new features, iPad optimization and design tweaks. The new features include animated stickers, location sharing, and video messages. On the design front, it looks more in line with iOS 7.
Short videos that are up to 10 seconds long can be sent via Google Hangouts now. Also the new version of Hangouts for iOS, version 2.0, is optimized for iPad. Two-pane conversation view and picture-in-picture video calling, both are now available for the iPad.
It is the first update from Google for Hangouts since the last one in November 2013. Hangouts Version 2.0 is now available for download from the App Store.
