Google recently updated its Hangouts app for iPhone and iPad to add several new features, including intelligent, one-tap location sharing. It automatically detects when a contact in a text chat asks where you are, and lets you share your location with a single tap. This also adds option to access SMS and voicemail messages from your Google Voice account, new stickers and more. Check out the complete changelog below.
