It has been announced that Google will finally bring the ability to record and send video on the Hangouts app to Android. More than two years after the feature was originally released.
On my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge device you can see the record icon but you are unable to press it as it’s greyed out whilst using Google Hangouts.
Android users have always been unable to record video through Google Hangouts unlike those who used iOS, they have had the feature since February 2014. First being allowed to record for 10-seconds and then March this year that was increased to a minute.
The new change to Hangouts should be rolled out this week.
