I'll look into that. I haven't tried it myself, but it doesn't sound ideal for me from what I've heard. I use the Hangouts extension throughout the day from a PC. I like to have the notifications on for that, but I do not want the notifications coming to my phone. From what I understand, in order to keep notifications from Hangouts chats coming to your phone but retain SMS notifications in the combined app, you have to turn off notifications for each individual Hangout.

I just got this installed and set up a rule. It seems to be doing exactly what I want. Thanks for the suggestion. Does it affect battery life? It seems like a service that is always running in the background. Does it trip a lot of wakelocks or anything?
