Google’s Network Diagnostics App Adds Hangouts Test, Bug Fixes

Untitled copyGoogle has issued a minor update to the Chrome Connectivity Diagnostics application, which we highlighted in an article last week. 

Freshly bumped to version 1.1, the network error checking tool benefits from a handful of minor bugs fixed, and a new test that checks the service availability of Google Hangouts.

Following this update ten tests are run by the app, though two hardware-based checks are limited to those using it on a Chromebook.

Explanations

Hangouts aside the most notable addition is of short explanations on what each test looks for when determining a pass or fail. These blurbs are a little technical in detail, but not incomprehensible. At the very least they offer a few extra facets of information that will be of use when Googling a fix.
