In my Android phone, I'm trying to add a work email account to use Hangouts, but I keep getting an error with message:

Couldn't log in the selected account. Please check your account password and try again

The only two options are: Cancel or Try Again.

When I choose the option Try again, I continue to go in circle. Has anyone have seen this issue before? Please keep in mind that while I'm getting this error, I'm in Google Gmail and Calendar.nks.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

  • Reading about others having same issue it might be an account syncing issue. Try to see if this works: Open your device's Settings app Settings app. Tap Users & accounts. Tap your account email Tap Account sync Make sure all your apps are set to sync – Bo Lawson Dec 5 '18 at 23:37
