A new update for Hangouts is hitting Android devices today bringing, not only a few key bug fixes, but new features as well. Version 2.1.223 introduces the ability to set your own custom ringtone for incoming calls, a likely precursor to voice calling we’d guess.
Also, Google mentions they’ve finally patched up that nasty battery draining bug plaguing so many devices. The update will be hitting the Google Play Store today (in a staged rollout, of course), but for those that don’t feel like waiting, you can sideload the apk via our link below.
