    Lol. Update for this, but where’s Hangouts 4.0?

    Hopefully that rolls out today too. We will see.

    • Cuptake The Boss

      Google released it for ios first. Don’t hold your breath.

      • Clubber

        Yup. They sure did.

        Getting tired of that actually. Oh well.

  • Kenny Woodard

    Weird, seems like a decent jump in the build number for this just to be, seemingly, a bug fixer.

    • Antoine Martin

      Not just a bug fixer : you can now send animated stickers

      • Kenny Woodard

        Huh, when I got the official rollout earlier this morning there was no mention of that in the changelog on the Play Store.. And there’s not one on here. I didn’t think anyone actually used stickers.. But hey, I guess someone is.

  • It adds stickers and revised animations so far as i can tell.

  • dovidhalevi

    So much nicer interface than hangouts, but … armv7-specific. Thanks Google.
