Google Hangouts banner

Only moments ago, Google announced their all new instant messaging service Google+ Hangouts at this year’s Google IO 2013 and now — it’s officially available on Google Play. There were some questions at first on whether this would replace Google Talk (GTalk) and it looks like Google has confirmed this by specifically mentioning in the title that, well, “Replaces Talk.”

To apply the update, you MUST install from the Google Play Store on your computer’s web browser — this will NOT install from the Play Store on your Android device. Jump on to the link below to be taken to Play Store where you can give it a download and try it for yourself. Still having trouble? Try sideloading the official apk here.
