If you didn't already know, Google just unveiled its new superstar smartphone, the Nexus 5. Alongside it, it unleashed Android 4.4 KitKat, which seems like a much bigger upgrade than we're used to, which is great.

One of the killer features of KitKat is that Hangouts has been updated and features proper SMS and MMS integration - which is great! Google says you'll even be able to import existing conversations into Hangouts, another nice touch.

 

Animated GIFs make an appearance, as well as the Auto Awesome animated photos feature which is found in Google+. These new features will hit the refreshed Hangouts app which will come preinstalled on Nexus 5 devices, and be made available through the Play Store in the coming weeks.
