Google Hangouts gets quick reply functionality

Quick replying and conversation shortcuts are now things in Hangouts

By: Sean Ridgeley from Jan 27, 2016 @ 14:03 CST

A fresh update for Google's chat app Hangouts adds in quick reply functionality. When a notification comes in for a call or message, so will a button that allows you to reply without entering an entirely new window. This is handy if you just want to shoot a quick message to someone, to tell them you're not available for a call or you'll be right back or whatever else.


The other key change in the update is conversation shortcuts, so now you can just click a button on the Home screen to talk to specific people.

You can find the APK at the source.
