KitKat Keyboard, Hangouts with SMS Hit Play Store

Posted by at 12:10 pm on November 7, 2013

Following today’s release of the Text-to-Speech Engine in the Play Store, Google made the new Android 4.4 KitKat keyboard and Hangouts with SMS apps available in the Play Store, too.

The latest version of the Google keyboard gets rid of the blue Holo trail, simplifies the mini-keyboard, changes emoji insertion points, and adds the ability to drag a finger through the space bar to insert spaces rather than lift the finger from the screen. The keyboard also makes adjustments for different screen sizes.

The new version of Hangouts adds the ability to send/receive text messages within the Hangouts app. The Hangouts app now powers IM, SMS, and MMS conversations. It supports animated GIFs, location sharing, and mood status.

Both apps are free to download from the Play Store.
