Google Hangouts to soon integrate SMS, as well as video/photo effects

Google to soon update Hangouts with direct SMS integration, and more (NASDAQ:GOOG)

If you're like me, you'll use Google Hangouts for messaging friends who don't use Facebook - I'm looking at you, bro (who is anti-social networks) - but the Mountain View-based giant is looking to make Hangouts a more powerful messaging platform with some new additions that will soon be introduced.

The biggest of which is direct SMS integration, as well as the ability for users to create their own GIF files, as well as share their location. There's some new photography-based additions and auto enhancement tools that we'll see, as well as new effects for saved videos or live Hangouts feeds. The Auto Awesome automatic enhancement and editing tools will be rolled out to video, but most of the new features will be centered around photos.

 

The video editing tools will make editing video easier, but is a great feature to have on mobile.
