APK Notes:

The biggest change in this release is the arrival of new contact cards.

This release does not have a Play Store Description, so we grabbed one from version 25.0.197085453:

Use Hangouts to keep in touch. Message contacts, start free video or voice calls, and hop on a conversation with one person or a group.

• Include all your contacts with group chats for up to 150 people.
• Say more with status messages, photos, videos, maps, emoji, stickers, and animated GIFs.
• Turn any conversation into a free group video call with up to 10 contacts.
• Call any phone number in the world (and all calls to other Hangouts users are free!).
• Connect your Google Voice account for phone calling, SMS texting, and voicemail integration.
• Keep in touch with contacts across Android, iOS, and the web, and sync chats across all your devices.
• Message contacts anytime, even if they’re offline.

Notes: Mobile carrier and ISP charges may apply. Calls to Hangouts users are free, but other calls might be charged. View our calling rates at

This release may come in several variants. Consult our handy FAQ to see which download is right for you.

    Wow 2.5 to 3.0

    Looks like it’s a big update.

    Edit: Nothing is new. I feel cheated. :(

    • Duncankrebbers

      And yet I don’t see anything major that has changed. Only the help pages seem to be different from the last version.

    • raddacle

      Not really significant, but the check mark in the People & Options screen is a neon green now. Also there’s a new (I think) setting under SMS that’s called Default SMS Messaging Account.

      • djak250

        Naw that was there beforehand, I think. Just checked it this morning before updating actually.

      • Cute Cat

        Yes you might be correct.

  • Alex

    Unfortunately, nothing immediately noticeable (STILL NO SWIPE TO GO BACK TO CONVERSATION LIST).

    • Risket

      I still miss that so much :-/

  • Blendi Krasniqi

    Why the hell did they place a + button on top instead of using a FAB?

    • Yeah

      Because Google…

    • Suicide_Note

      What’s an FAB?

  • Ian

    Seems that the navigation menu order changes some. “Snooze Notifications” was moved to the top. Icons are also a lighter gray.

  • new contact cards when you tap someone’s photo

  • Poindexter

    Volume control doesn’t affect in call volume when inside a conversation anymore… That’s kinda nice.

    • Cool

      Good catch. I noticed that a few weeks ago, and it was annoying me.

      I never understood why the volume was tied to that. Glad it’s fixed.

  • Dyno

    I will never understand why Google puts such little effort into an app that provides the most basic of smartphone functionality. 9 times out of 10 if I’m picking up my phone its to send or reply to a text or Hangout message and this app does a shitty job at both of those things. And don’t even get me started on the piss poor implementation of Google’s own design guidelines, or why the 100x better Messenger app exists instead of working on improving Hangouts, or why the app integrates sms, IM, Voip, and sms over wifi yet is confusingly named after a social media chat client

      Thanks! I’ve searched the whole internet for the apk but had given up until you saved the day.

  • Nick

    when ever i try to load hangouts on my phone it always says “no connection couldn’t connect to the server” just from the new update anyone know why

  • Thomas

    Since 2.1 Hangouts has an issue with number formatting, I reported in the product forum, via the feedback button. But it isn’t fixed in 3.0 either. I really what is happening in the Hangouts team. Either they are working on something “big” or they think: “it doesn’t affect US users because their number als the same, so who cares?”
