Google Hangouts Chrome App comes to Desktop

Google released the Hangouts Chrome App for Windows and Chrome OS -- a simpler, faster way to use Hangouts on your computer alongside whatever else you’re doing. It works outside of your browser so your chats are always available, not tucked away inside a window. You’ll get all your messages as long as you have the app running, and your chats will sync across Hangouts on all your devices.

What’s new in the Hangouts Chrome app:

•Native app experience. Hangouts runs in the background and notifies you of new messages and incoming calls with animated notifications.
•Always-on-top avatars. Your friends’ avatars animate on your screen and stay on top so you never miss an important message.
•Auto-minimizing chat windows. Chat windows auto minimize when you’re inactive to avoid cluttering your screen.
•Message previews. Hover over any avatar to get a peek at the most recent message.
•Drag and drop. Position the app anywhere on your screen, including multi-monitor configurations. •You can also pop out important conversations and pin them to your desktop.
•Keyboard Shortcuts. Navigate between chats quickly using your favorite Chrome shortcuts.
•Google Voice support. Connect your Google Voice account to make calls, send and receive SMS, and access your voicemail.
