    Default Difference between hangouts and messages app for texts

    What is the difference between using these two apps for text messages? Do they work exactly the same? What are the benefits of using one over the other? Which do you use?

    Default Re: Difference between hangouts and messages app for texts

    The messages app is solely for SMS and MMS communication, whereas the Hangouts app is a hybrid client for both the Hangouts (formerly Google Talk/Messenger) service and traditional SMS/MMS messages. See these...

    Google Voice won't be integrated into latest Hangouts update, but it's coming | Android Central

    I'm a fan of Hangouts, but I'm eagerly awaiting the Google Voice integration.
