That is actually not true. As of yesterday you can. Here are the instructions. Make sure you have updated to the newest version of the G+ app. You should have version 2.3.1.242969 that came out yesterday. From there you need to go to messenger and find the person you want to hangout with and send them a message. Once you send them a message you will see ...

Re-installing the 'Google Play Services' updates solved the problem for me. Simply go to Manage Apps → Google Play Services and press Uninstall Updates. Now if you start Google Hangouts again it will ask you to update Google Play Services. If you do so, it will bring up Google Play where you can install the update. After this, Google Hangouts started ...

As Izzy pointed out in the comments, the package name of Hangouts is the same as the one for Google Talk: com.google.android.talk. Therefore, even if Talk was built in to your ROM, it should be 'overlaid' by Hangouts. However, it's possible that there's some Google Talk service that didn't get killed by the upgrade process. If that's the case, a simple ...

This is how Google Voice works by design. Here is the relevant exert from the Help article: Each time you place a call, instead of dialing the number you want to reach, Google Voice dials a US-based direct access number. The Google Voice server then forwards your call to the actual destination number. This allows for faster call setup and the ...

So this turned out to be a pretty easy fix, once it dawned on me what it was. I just recently installed the Xposed framework, and the XPrivacy module. When I uninstalled the old Hangouts, it must have deleted all the old permission settings in XPrivacy, and then when I reinstalled it, it defaulted to maximum restriction. With access to the phone ...

If a reboot doesn't solve the problem, such as in my case (HTC Desire HD), try going to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > All > Hangouts and tap "Clear Cache" and "Clear Data". Go back, open Hangouts again and it will sign you back in. You may need to verify your number again, but that got rid of the duplicate notifications for my case.

It's a bummer but currently you can't. You can only join a hangout from the phone. From the Google+ help: On Hangouts for mobile, you have the ability to: Join a hangout You can't currently: Start a hangout Invite people to join a hangout (The January 2012 update of the Google+ app changed this, however.)

Yes, any phone that has a front-facing camera and is running Gingerbread (Android 2.3.x) and above will be able to join and initiate Hangouts with the latest version of Google+ app.

As far as Android is concerned, they're the same app, and Hangouts is just a new update for Talk which happens to change the user-facing name. (Apps also have a package name, which is how Android decides if they're the same app.) It works like any other update: it completely replaces the old version in your phone's internal storage. Like any other update, ...

This is now fixed in the latest release of Hangouts: Fixed a problem where you could receive two notifications for a message: one from Hangouts, one from the old Talk app. The new version details are below: UPDATED: June 6, 2013 CURRENT VERSION: 1.0.2.695251 REQUIRES ANDROID: 2.3 and up Google Hangouts

I fixed mine a different way. tried all the above and nothing worked. I figured it was still seeing me as logged into Talk. Try the following: Uninstall updates for Hangouts. (brings you back to talk) Open Talk and Sign Out. Reinstall update (brings you back to Hangouts) Fixed it for me.

Hangouts doesn’t use the green or grey dots that Google Talk used to identify if someone is online or offline. Instead, you can tell if a contact is online or not if their profile picture is clear or faded. A faded profile picture means your contact is unavailable, and a clear picture means they’re online. One downside is that Hangouts doesn’t support the ...

Touch Menu >​ Settings > Touch your Google account > scroll to the bottom and touch Sign out.

You can delete the photos via the Google+ app or web interface. From the left-hand menu, click Photos. If you haven't turned on auto-upload and don't want to, click Not now to get rid of the prompts. Then, if you're in the app, open the menu that slides in from the left again, and choose Albums from the menu; or in the web interface, click More on the top, ...

You can't change this. In Android, the app can tell the keyboard (or input method) what extra actions to show (such as Send). The app can also specify that the text field can only hold single-line text, as in this case. What you could do is switch to a different keyboard app. You might be able to find one that puts the action in a different place (not in ...

This ended up being an extremely simple fix but took me a long time to do. Open the hangouts app and go to Settings Select your Google account Scroll down and click 'Sign out' Back in the main listing, click the SMS dropdown Click on your Google account And that's it! All my contact images showed up correctly and change when I change their photo via the ...

The main difference between a "user profile" and a "restricted profile" is that a restricted profile doesn't have its own Google account, which is needed for Gmail and Google+ Hangouts. A restricted profile with a Google account in it is just a normal user account. If you want to restrict access to features in a normal user profile, you need to use ...

Not sure if this is it. From Google Support: The YouTube app won't work with Hangouts On Air. So if you use Hangouts On Air, your viewers will only see the video call, not your playlist or the videos.

Just released today, version 1.2 says this in the "What's new" section: You can finally see who is on Hangouts! When you start a new Hangout, green icons show who's on, and gray shows who's not. Also of note: Contacts are now organized by People you Hangout with, Suggested People, and Other Contacts. Long press contacts in the New ...
