Hangouts v5.1 release brings disappointingly small bug fixes
The changelog mentions little details regarding the update, apart from some improvements in the send button and the interface. The improvements offer no visual impact and they do not affect the overall performance of the app.
- Bug fixes and performance improvements
- Updates to send button
- User interface and accessibility improvements.
The changes do not look particularly interesting but we can hope that the lag spikes and the bug that prevented new messages from opening a new chat window are fixed.
You can download the APK from Google below; it is a secured file with a cryptographic signature that guarantees is has not been tampered with. If you do not want to wait for the official Hangouts update, you can download and install it yourself.
