If you’re unaware of what’s happened in France, here’s a quote from CNN,

Scores of people were killed Thursday night when a large truck plowed through a Bastille Day crowd in Nice, France, in what President Francois Hollande called a terror attack. The death toll grew through the night, with Hollande saying 77 people died.

Hangouts is available to download now on both Android (Hangouts Dialer app required) and iOS through Google Play and the App Store.
