Google Hangouts has been widely used as the primary Android messaging application for SMS since the past couple of months after Google brought in the changes. However, its functionality is limited as of now, in that there’s no dedicated widget for the users to access. However, an XDA user has decided to take matters into his own hands and has come up with a neat unofficial Hangouts Widget and published it on the Play Store as well. But knowing Google, we’re not sure how long it will last in the Play Store, so make sure you download it while you still can.
XDA user RSenG2x has to be thanked for this and the widget functions just as it is supposed to. Users can download the app from the Play Store link below and pass on suggestions or issues through the reviews section. One must commend the effort put in by the developer to introduce a widget like this in the Play Store which can be very beneficial as well as time saving. However, with a messaging widget like this, the issue of privacy is always a concern.
