• Say more with photos, maps, emoji, stickers, and animated GIFs.

• Call any phone number in the world (and all calls to other Hangouts users are free!).
• Connect your Google Voice account for phone number, SMS, and voicemail integration.
• Keep in touch with friends across Android, iOS, and the web, and sync chats across all your devices.
