Google revealed Hangouts, its unified text, video and
multimedia messaging platform yesterday during its
epic three-hour I/O keynote, but while the platform
pulls in Google Talk, Google+ and other sources, it
was apparently missing SMS integration.
Incorporating texts from your carrier is on the way, however, according to Hangouts and Chat community
manager Dori Storbeck, who said as much in a reply
to a question (via 9to5Google)about SMS integration
on Google+. The integration will go a long way to truly unifying
communications via the service, which is available on
Gmail, Android, iOS and Chrome right now. SMS
feeding into the Hangouts stream also means that it
borrows a trick from what Facebook has added to
Facebook Messenger with Chat Heads on select hardware devices, and it also provides Google with a
fairly strong feature advantage over competitors
including dedicated mobile messaging providers like
WhatsApp and Kik, which don’t pull in content from
SMS sources. When SMS does arrive, expect it to make its way to
Android only, as there’s not much developers can do
to build in SMS on iOS, as those permissions are not
open. Hangouts also dropped XMPP in Hangouts,
which doesn’t bode well for Google IM on other
platforms and in other apps, but it looks like the company is pretty open to building other protocols
into its own service.
