Didn’t catch the SaaS updates last week? Don’t worry, you didn’t miss much. Google announced a change in Hangouts notifications for Android, launched a new feature in Vault that will help you copy your chats from Mail and preserve your messages, and updated the “What’s new in G Suite?” Help Center article to make it easier to search (an update to updates? How meta).

Change to Per-Conversation Settings in Classic Hangouts on Android
G Suite Updates | Google is moving notification settings for classic Hangouts conversations to notification channels on O+ Android devices. With these changes, customized ring tones and chat messaging tones per conversation/contact will be removed and defaulted to the general app settings.
