Is it possible that Google Hangouts might actually be more responsive and work much better thanks to its latest update? Who knows, but what we do know is that the update adds the ability for users to see what friends are using hangouts, send and receive animated GIFs, and to even call phone numbers from their favorite iOS device. This means that users can make and receive phone calls, which is free in the US and Canada, by using their Google Voice number.

Now stop reading and get back to hanging out with friends!

Today, Google launched Hangouts, giving you the ability to have one-on-one and group conversations for free. You can connect with friends through computers and mobile devices and share images and emoji with each other. You can also have a video call with up to 10 friends.


– View and continue your Hangouts across devices.
— Get notifications just once. After you see an alert, it’ll be removed on other devices.
— Snooze your notifications if you’d prefer to respond later.
— See what you talked about in the past, including shared photos and your video call history.
— Keep a record of any Hangout for just a short period of time by turning history off.
— View collections of photos shared from each of your Hangouts.
— Choose from over 850 emoji to express what’s on your mind.

Hoping to take the social networking world by storm is new app Uberlife with the grand intention of taking out all the effort of arranging a meet up with friends.

The app hooks into either the user’s Facebook or Twitter accounts and takes seconds to set up. Upon initial setup, it comes up with some suggestions of friends to invite and where to visit in the local area. Future “hangouts” can be just as easily created within a few taps of the screen, making it so simple to arrange somewhere to meet.

Further functionality comes in the form of being able to view map details for the area, being able to discuss any details about the visit via the app, and even add relevant images.

Essentially, it’s like Facebook places but with extra ease and the ability to tap into Twitter friends. As it’s free, it’s an ideal companion for those who want to juggle plenty of meet ups with their friends.
