Hangouts
The Chrome Hangout app has received an interesting new update overnight, with Googler Mayur Kamat announcing on Google+ that you can now drag-and-drop images from the web into your Hangouts chat window.

According to Mr Kamat, you can do this on your Inbox/Gmail window after refreshing as well as in the Chrome App. The funmction is limited with animated GIFs unfortunately not supported. If you try you end up with an error message saying:

Unable to attach file. Only JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP and TIFF image files are supported.

The update will let you shave a few seconds off your time when sharing images without having to download the image first and then upload to Hangouts.

If you use Hangouts, refresh your mailbox or re-launch your app and try it out.

Daniel Tyson   Ausdroid's Editor in Chief

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
