Google has updated its Google+ Hangouts app with support for links, SMS invites, in-app sounds, and more.

Google+ Hangouts brings one-on-one and group conversations to life with photos, emoji, and video calls for free. Connect with friends across computers, phones and tablets.

Features:
-- Say more with photos and emoji.
-- See when people are together in Hangouts, when they’re typing, or whether they’ve seen your message.
-- Turn any conversation into a video call with up to 10 friends.
-- Message friends anytime, even if they're not connected right now.
-- Use Hangouts on computers, phones, and tablets.
-- Hangouts stay in sync across devices so you can start or continue them anywhere.
-- Choose from hundreds of emoji to help you make your point.
-- See what you talked about in the past, including shared photos and your video call history.
-- Get notifications just once. Once you see an alert, you won’t see repeats on your computer.
-- View collections of photos shared from each of your Hangouts.
-- Snooze notifications at times when you’d prefer to be undisturbed by alerts.

What's New In This Version:
-- Support for sending and clicking on links
-- Invite friends to Hangouts via SMS
-- In-app sounds when you receive a message
-- Improvements to badge count behavior
-- Addressed network connection bar weirdness
-- Bug fixes
-- Support for iOS 6.0

You can download Hangouts from the App Store for free.

Is anyone else having problems using this app? It keeps saying that it can't contact the Google Servers. Been that way for at least a month now.
