    I just updated my Hangouts (with SMS support) and Google Keyboard from the play store. The keyboard is totally meant for KitKat judjing by its style. Does that mean we're getting kitkat soon? Like tomorrow ;_;

    I don't think so. I mean it could happen but carriers are gonna be taking awhile to release kitkat. Did you always have an emoji keyboard in your hangouts? Cause I just noticed that on my app after it updated (I've never really used hangouts)

    I've used Hangouts quite a bit. I haven't updated the app yet, but I've never seen emoji on the keyboard itself.

    There's always been a separate button beside the input field.

    Not a fan of the new keyboard. Seems like not has forgot all of my tendencies. My phone won't auto correct "its to it's" or "thats to that's" and that's isn't even a word!!! Same with isnt it doesn't put the ' in the word!!!

    I miss the Holo Blue accents. I think I'm going to miss the blue status bar icons once the 4.4 update comes through, too. White is boring.

    The smaller spacebar on numbers layout is a little annoying but I see the future benefit

    I still haven't got the update.

    I even re-downloaded it and still have the build version 1.2.

    Most of the time restarting the phone will push new updates.

    The keyboard is going to take a lot of getting used to.

    - Did it wipe out previous auto correct/suggest stuff? If I type out "youre" within a sentence (not first word) it doesn't give the option of "you're" in the initial three suggestions. Odd as "Youre" does suggest "You're" (Yes, i know I can fiddle with the dictionary.)

    - Having the "!" right next to "?" can be problematic if you're not paying attention and hit Enter too quickly as the meaning of texts can completely change. i.e. "You love me?" becomes "You love me!"

    - The blue text will be missed.

    - I wouldn't mind an option to replace the Mic/Voice button with the comma key, and I suppose some third-party keyboard would allow that.

    It does give me the "you're" option of the three. The only issue I have with the new layout is the comma moved. I will also miss the holo blue lettering.

    Ive (<--- see no apostrophe) tried messing with the dictionary and typing in a shortcut but it doesn't seem to do anything. But yea the keyboard isnt automatically inserting apostrophes.

    I dont see how hangouts is better than the stock SMS app. I also use SMS Popup which functions fine when hangouts is activated.

    I miss the blue highlights as well.

    It's rolling out waves at a time via the play store...

    I'm still waiting, even though I already had it via an Apk.

    It does for certain words, yes. But if I type "its" or "youre" within a sentence, the three suggestions do not include "it's" or "you're". However, if I type "itss" or "youree" then "it's" and "you're" are suggested. Typing things like "youve" will suggest "you've", as it always did.

    Same with "thats" (<--see) and "thats" isnt (<--again) even a word! I can understand "its" as it is a word, but I rarely use "its" mainly "it's."

    It's is popping up correctly on mine. It's just to the left as a suggestion which you have to click.
