    Default Google Hangouts and Facebook Contact Syncs

    I know that the next kitkat update makes galaxy s4 users from Verizon use Google hangouts. So in preparation of this coming, is there anyway to sync hangouts with Facebook contacts? My biggest issue is that I want the Facebook pictures of the person I am talking to to show up in hangouts similar to how it does/did in the text messaging app. Any help is appreciated.

    If your Facebook friends are in your contacts, you can set a picture of them through the People app, which will sync with Hangouts. The downside is that you have to acquire each photo individually and select the photos from your gallery.

    the way I have it now is that my facebook apps automatically sync with the contacts and it shows up in my text messaging app. So as of right now the only way to do this is manually?

    If the contact pictures currently show up in your messaging app then it should probably do the same in Hangouts

    as much as I'd like that to be true, it does not show up in hangouts. It only shows in the text messaging app
