    I got it to install by going to the play store on the web and installing it to my phone on there:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...e.android.talk

    However I've heard that some aren't getting it to work that way. Google has said this on the notes for the new app:

    NOTE: If you aren't yet able to install Hangouts on your phone or tablet, or the Play Store "Open" button takes you to the old Talk app, hang tight, we are rolling out Hangouts to everyone over the course of several days. Rest assured Hangouts will be available soon for all Android 2.3+ devices, tablets included!
    Hangouts brings one-on-one and group conversations to life with photos, emoji, and video calls for free. Connect with friends across computers, Android and Apple devices. Brought to you by Google.

    I found the APK on the web. I don't recall the website. My TALK was showing as hangout in the playstore but when I opened it it was still TALK. After downloading the APK and installing it, TALK was overwritten.

    IMO I like Talk better thus far. It was more simplistic. Hangout seems a little more cumbersome. It is nice that it will be cross platform, but trying to get iPeople to download Google apps isn'tworth the effort. Talk had the color indicators that showed the availability of the contacts in your conversations. Is that option gone now?

    I wqas kind of hoping they would just rename Talk and keep it that way across all platforms

    I already had Talk installed on my S4 so I just went to the Play Store and hit UPGRADE on the Talk page. It works perfectly on phone and on my iPad HD. I have used it for video chats and messaging with no difficulty. BTW, my carrier is AT&T.

    I used Hangouts on my S4 to video talk to my buddy in Germany. Worked great.

    You need to do the update from the playstore. I think, there was a bug with hangouts.

    I've had a bunch of issues with Google Hangouts. A lot of the times the messages are not sending and I'm not receiving them. Notifications is buggy. It basically needs an update to fix the bugs pronto!

    I will not upgrade to hangouts, I love talk. Google ruined talk with all this social media nonsense

    I agree. I updated to hangouts then uninstalled the update and reverted back to TALK. The new features do not out weight the functional features they took away in my opinion.
