Google today revealed an update to the Hangouts App for Android devices and added a number of new capabilities to its mobile messaging service. Hangouts now makes it easier for people to discover one another thanks to a number searching function. Conversations will display a "last seen" marker to make users' availability more apparent. The app gains new filters for video chats, including sepia, black and white, and vignette. Google added 16 sticker packs to the app, and made it easier to share location data and discover nearby points of interest for potential real-life meet-ups. Google Hangouts is free to download from the Google Play Store.
