    I keep getting notifications that there's an update to Hangout but I really have no idea what it is other then the fact that it says it "replaces" talk, and I don' know what they mean by that either.
    Could someone please explain what it does? Thanks.

    hey there :-) hangouts is the updated version of google talk, it combines the messaging feature of Google talk with the video chat functions of hangouts. You can choose to chat with one person individually, choose a circle from Google plus, or add individuals separately. There are also some wicked new emojis :-) In stead of having to use both Google talk and hangouts for the chat function and video chat function, hangouts will completely replace Google talk on the device. It will only revert back to Google talk if you uninstall the update.

    Hangouts can also be disabled through Settings>Apps>Google Talk>Disable/Uninstall updates.
