Google Hangouts and Google Voice are finally playing nice

Well, here’s a pleasant late-night surprise. Looks like Google Hangouts finally has the long-overdue integration with Google Voice, meaning that your SMS messages (aka traditional text messages) can finally show up in Google Hangouts.

That means a couple things. First is that you’ll only need one app — Hangouts — to receive text messages and Hangouts messages. (Not sure yet what that means for voicemails through Google Voice.) It also means that you’ll be able to get traditional text messages through the Hangouts extension in Chrome, which is nice.
