Google has announced that it is updating Hangouts for Android with some nifty new features, which will have 16 pages of new stickers available, some new basic video filters, and more.




Hangouts for Android will be updated with some new smart features that will be baked directly into the chat, and while there may already be some location-based features, the updated version of Hangouts for Android will show users a map and pin when it detects a contact asking you where you are at that time.


Some other features that will be making their way into the new app will include a "last seen" timestamp, so you can see if that person has actually read your important messages, or not. There will also be a new importing feature that will let you shift all of your contacts from your smartphone, into Hangouts. We should see the updated version of Hangouts for Android rolled out in the coming days.
