Hangouts For Android Updated – Brings Back Status Indicators

When Google replaced Talk with Hangouts, the application also received a complete overhaul.  It brought along numerous other improvements but removed one small, yet important feature, the ability to see who is online and who isn’t. Today Google announced that the feature would be returning. It is now possible to see when other users are immediately reachable on Hangouts via a green (available) or grey (not available) icon on their contact picture. The update is now rolling our through Google Play and an iOS update probably isn’t far off.
