“You’ve been asking us when the next round of updates were coming. Well, they’re coming later this week! We know it’s been a little while, but this is a big one and we think it’s well worth the wait,” Google noted in a Google+ post.
The update will include improved battery life, photo bundles, photo replies in Hangouts, voice command sorting, and more. The update will also remove the video call functionality for the time-being.
