    Default Savings Pictures From Hangouts

    Just switched to AT&T and got me a Nexus 5. I'm currently using Hangouts for SMS and can't figure out how to save pictures from there. My father in law sent me a few of my daughter and I see no capability to save the images. Is there a way to get that done? Thanks!

    Show picture in full screen, tap the 3 dots in the top right corner and click save.

    I don't have that option. When I open the picture they're aren't any dots in the corner.

    It came as 4 pictures in one message from an iPhone, if that matters.

    It does. That is a hangouts bug.

    Textra is one of the few messaging apps that supports multiple pictures in one MMS correctly, so that's a good choice.

    I do kind of like having Hangouts run my SMS so I downloaded Chomp to go along with it. If I run into more issues with saving pictures, I'll just open up Chomp and save from there, which worked perfectly.
