For questions related to the Hangouts app for Android.

Google Hangouts is a cross-platform instant message and video chat service. It launched in May, 2013, as a consolidation of Google Talk, Google+ Messenger, and Hangouts (which was previously only for video chat). Starting with the Nexus 5, the Hangouts Android app also serves as the default SMS/MMS application on Google's Nexus devices.
