Google revamps Hangouts for Material Design Google has updated their Hangouts application for Material Design and included speed and performance updates.
Now in version 4.0 for Android, you should be able to chat with improved speed and simpler menus.

Full list of what's new:

•Hangouts is sleeker. Now updated with material design, Hangouts has a new look and feel: items respond to your touch in more intuitive ways and transitions between tasks are more fluid.
•Hangouts is simpler. The new Compose button makes it easier for you to start a new group or conversation. Our streamlined contacts list helps you find the right person quickly. And attachments have been revamped and simplified, so sharing--of emoji, GIFs, your location, even multiple photos at once--is a snap.
•Hangouts is faster. Whether you're sending a quick message or video chatting with family, you don't want hold-ups. We've been obsessively fixing bugs and speeding up message delivery to make Hangouts faster and more reliable. Bonus: less battery consumption.

Additionally, you can now make calls from the Hangouts Dialer with Outbound Caller ID and you can use Hangouts for Android Wear, two oft-requested features.
