Hey there,

I would try to clear the app's cache.  Go to your phones settings --> apps --> locate Hangouts --> clear cache/data.  Then try and relaunch the app as normal.

(please note, this process listed might differ slightly on each phone - you want to go into your phones main Android settings and look for Apps - from there, locate Hangouts and then get to the storage or data portion to clear data/cache)

If that's a no-go, I would uninstall the app completely from the Play Store, restart the phone entirely, then reinstall the app and try to open at that point.

Report back if you have no luck!

How does a person in South Africa call to the US using Hangouts? Does it cost to video chat with the person in the US? I think it might be 1 cents per minute but I want to be sure I understand correctly. Would I be better off to purchase the credits while I am still in the US or can I do it while
