Hangouts no longer drops calls when transitioning between WiFi and mobile networks

hangouts_app_icon_material_design

Google’s Hangouts app will no longer drop your calls when transitioning from WiFi to a mobile network (or vice versa). The feature works by pausing your call while the app waits for the connection to reestablish itself. It is a pretty seamless process so you don’t have to do anything extra when you move from connection to connection. You no longer have to wait wait 30-40 seconds to get back on a call with anyone. All it takes now is a few moments while your phone transitions the connection and your conversation is back in action.

The feature is implemented in both the Android and iOS versions of Hangouts.
