Looks like Google saw it the same and with the recently announced Google Hangouts update for Android, Google added some - on the first sight - "useful" features. For instance can Google Hangouts now be used for sending and receiving SMS and MMS messages. And it's even able to import existing messages from other SMS and MMS clients to make the move to Hangouts even more convenient.
