Hangouts App Notification Badges
My girlfriend just came over from and iPhone to the S4. I got her the new Hangouts update, but she's having issues with the lack of a notification badge when looking at the app on either the home screen or app drawer (this functionality is in the default messages app for the S4 as well as what she was used to on the iPhone). I brought her over to Hangouts because of what it can do, but she won't use it if she doesn't know that there's a new message (she's not used to the notification bar) and would instead stick to the sms only messages app.
Does anybody have either a short or long term fix to bring notification badges to the Hangouts app?
Thanks in advance :)
