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!

I had the same issue.  I had to go to settings, applications, application manager.  I disabled Hangouts for 30 seconds and enabled it again.  I tapped the Hangouts app and was prompted to allow or deny permission and I chose 'Allow.'  Then it took me through the normal setup options and lastly prompted me to update the app, which I did.  It's now up and running normally again. Hope this helps!  :)

Hey stsyk3s, Thanks for the info. Just for clarification, is she having trouble logging in using both the Windows computer and the iPhone 5s? It shouldn't be necessarily to use Family Link for this. Let us know.

This is not a solution. This is a test procedure to see if it will fail here also. I am not interested in testing things. Google has had enough time to test this problem. Google has had enough time to fix this problem. Google made 110 billion dollars last year. Asking me to debug for them/you is
