As i’m sure many of you found out the hard way the new Google app Hangouts had a bit of a rocky release to say the least as many users were having problems downloading the app and tablet users couldn’t get the app at all. Luckily later yesterday the app received an update that I was hoping to be SMS support but turned out to be something different but still good. There were no official release notes stating this but as far as we can tell the update fixed a lot of compatibility issues with devices, mainly tablets like the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 that as of yesterday for most users were unsupported.

Now it seems though that Google has got the ball rolling and that they are aware of the compatibility issues that currently plague the app and have fixed most of them. Hopefully soon this will be completely fixed and then Google can focus on getting SMS support into the app and later on Google Voice support as well.
