New Custom Invitations Options in Hangouts


Hangouts is being updated with several new invitation options that will make things much clearer.

Where to find it in the Hangouts App?

If you head to the Hangout settings on an Android device you’ll see the “How others get in touch with you” heading. Below that is “Customize invites,” which is where the new features are. You can find it on iOS in Settings under “Invitations”.

You can set different behaviors for people who have your email, phone number, and everyone else as shown in the picture below.


The new feature doesn’t require any app update and seems to be a server-side update that enables the new “customise invites” option.

Notably, the Hangouts app shows the default option for all three new ‘customise invites’ options as ‘can send an invite’.
