This is the most important update in the history of Hangouts


Hangouts shrug

The Hangouts app has had a lot of big updates over the years. Most recently, it received the ability to record and share videos. But nothing can compare to the monumental update that is rolling out right now to the Hangouts Android app. I’ll let AP’s unofficial changelog do the talking.

  • New: Shruggie!!!

That’s it, folks. Wrap things up. We’ve reached the pinnacle of human existence. There’s nowhere to go but downhill from here.

All kidding aside, this is the feature that was added to the web version of Hangouts back in January. To use the shruggie you can type out “/shruggie” (without the quotes) and hit send. Hangouts will automatically spit out the beloved shruggie character for you. Sometimes nothing quite says it like ¯_(ツ)_/¯.

Grab version 12.0 right here and send a shruggie today.

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.
