Today we found out that Google has announced that they are bringing tweaks to Hangouts. The move is intended to streamline the user interface while at the same time improving the streaming video quality. Users can expect that calls will start faster and stay clearer and crisp throughout the call due to the higher video quality. User controls will be moved down to the middle of the screen at the bottom to give a larger more immersive experience while using the Hangouts app. There will also be a simplified invite system for starting up calls with your family, friends, and business contacts.

The information about the new user experience and improved quality was announced today by Google’s software engineer Eduardo Fernández. Today only a small test group of people will get the update, but over the next few days the update will be rolling out worldwide. Eduardo notes that there is good news for those who hate change, as there will be a setting in the Hangouts menu for “Original version” that will be laid out like what Hangouts currently looks like. This move will definitely be a big win for the users of the app since everyone will love the increased video quality since really, who doesn’t like better video quality? Do you use Google Hangouts or do you prefer Skype or something else?
