Google Hangouts Chrome app has gotten a makeover, with very Android-y design flare to the app.
Mayur Kamat, a product manager at Google, has announced the update on his Google+ feed, advising the app is now available for users on Mac OSX, Windows, ChromeOS and Linux. The app still retains the old Chat Heads style once installed, but you can get the new look going by entering settings and disabling the transparent mode.
It’s a new look, but sadly you still can’t do one of the things that Hangouts in Android does exceptionally well – change your account easily. Still, it gives us something to hope for next time. If you’re using Hangouts for Chrome, you should get updated automatically, if not, head over to the Chrome Web Store and check it out.
