Google has finally updated its Hangouts for iOS. This new update, which brings the version to 9.0, adds a native iOS share extension alongside support for Low Power Mode for iPhone and iPad.

The native iOS share extension is something many users will appreciate. To use the Share Extension, you have to tap the Share button, then head to “More” and toggle the switch next to Hangouts to the on position. This allows you to share files and links directly to Hangouts from other apps.

The Low Power Mode works in iOS 9 and above and when users have Low Power Mode enabled on their handset, video in Google Hangouts is disabled (and calls occur over voice only). This, of course, will serve the user’s aim to stretch out their remaining battery life as much as possible.

  • Share extension – share text, links, pictures and video from other iOS apps
  • Automatically turn off video when in low power mode

You can download the updated Google Hangouts for iOS from the App Store now using the link below. The app was optimized for the iPhone and iPad, and available free of charge.
