    I just side loaded the new messenger app that is coming with Lollipop. I have to say that I love it.

    I've been a Hangouts proponent hoping that it would evolve into a better iMessage for more than a year now. It still feels Beta to me.

    The new Messenger is so smooth and fast compared to Hangouts. I think I will be using it as my default messenger until Hangouts gets finished and more polished.

    One of the coolest features of it is that changes colors with what people are wearing in their contact photos.

    How to install*Android 5.0 Lollipop Messenger app on Android Kit Kat 4.4

    First, we will need to download the .apk you can download it here
    Once downloaded, open up the .apk file
    Let it install
    Once installed, fire up the new app and message away!
    For those wondering where the Hangouts app is, it is currently not included in the new Messaging app. As mentioned previously, the app is used exclusively for SMS and MMS

    Not exactly seeing how it is better or worse than Hangouts, but to each their own.

    Any issues with MMS? I'm not able to get any pics. "No APN specified".

    Comparatively it's much faster and smoother that Hangouts. Less functionality. No calling or Hangouts messaging. Less lag.

    It might be a unique comparative thing as I haven't noticed any lag on Hangouts (of course I haven't done the comparison, and I am probably not that sensitive to it honestly unless it is really bad).
