The first supposed screenshots of Google Hangouts 4.0 are published online. The new version of Google's chat app seems to get a more refined and picked up more interface.

What is immediately striking about Google Hangouts 4.0 is the action button right below, which is typical of the Material Design of Android, but the current version is still absent. By pressing the button you new (video) start conversations, create groups and quickly select frequently used contacts. The tabs at the top are therefore no longer necessary and are therefore disappeared in the new app.
Furthermore, the field in which you enter multiple contacts for a group, slightly modified. Formerly stood here after adding a touch whether you want to add someone. There is now an overflow menu when you tap and hold a message with two options: Delete ("Delete") and mark it as unread (Notify).
In calls where you have muted notifications, the big red bar replaced by a smaller message (see above) to set you up to date. Therefore sees Hangouts 4.0 a lot cleaner off. There are a number of other changes introduced Hangouts 4.0, including the ability to Mobile also set a status that is visible to your contacts.
Chat conversations are a little clearer thanks to the use of a dark green color for incoming messages and outgoing messages for white. Moreover, the conversation puffs slightly rounder. With new buttons below the text field you can quickly share emoticons, pictures, stickers and location. Use your Hangouts also to send text messages, then it is thanks to a new dropdown easier to switch between messaging options.
For tablets seems Google Hangouts 4.0 not fully optimized. The app can not share the image in half to show an example of contacts and talks, but possibly comes into the final version still change. When the new app appears exactly is not known yet.
