FYI: Google Hangouts’ Android SMS update rolling out to all users in weeks, not days

03Today was the day some people had expected Google to release an update for its Hangouts app for Android, but sadly they may have to wait a bit longer — weeks, in fact. Company product manager Randall Sarafa revealed in a Google+ post that the SMS update for Android will only be available for Nexus 5 smartphones, while everyone else on the Play Store will get the update later.

In the latest version, users will find that it includes SMS integration, location-sharing, and support for animated GIFs.
