  • I really don't want them to combine Hangouts with Voice. I want them to stand alone. I use Voice to keep my second line separate, a line I ported in. I don't want all the Hangout "features".
  • Hell hath frozen over, folks. I thought I'd never see them update this app again, it's been almost 2 years since the last real update (I've been using a third party app since then).
  • What google voice hangouts integration? I cannot find any integration whatsoever. I tried checking out all settings and nothing. Phone calls are not routed to hangouts and sms messages are not either. Where is the integration?
  • Same here. I don't see it Sent from the iMore App
  • All I know is Mexican food sounds really great right now Sent from the iMore App
  • Matching IOS7 when IOS8 is about to be released seems rather late to the party. Also, does the new app have support for multiple GV accounts?
  • Exactly. You think they could have held off for another week and updated all the way to iOS8
  • I wish it DID have support for multiple accounts. Also, I see no Hangouts integration as well... Sent from the iMore App
  • I went to lengthy pain to take myself out of g+, avoided hangouts at all costs, I use voice, but becomes useless once you exit the USA. What would be the next google app integration that fails to be useful?
  • I think, but not 100% sure, that the integration is simply using your GV number when making a call via Hangouts and I imagine this would translate to the iPad too. Why have a GV app at all then? I don't know. I use it for my business line at at one point earlier this year it was routing calls to Hangouts at the same time and was a confusing mess - two ringtones at once!!
