Here's a potentially silly question.

When I navigate to https://hangouts.google.com/ in Chrome, it shows me a panel of my friends and a lovely image harvested from Google+: a lighthouse, or a waterfall. While these are very nice images, I'd love to be able to customize what shows up in the background. A web search doesn't yield up much, and the forums are full of people trying to change their backgrounds on Android...

Has anyone tried to do this? Is there a setting I'm missing? Help, nerdy backgrounds would make the new Hangouts just about perfect!

This sounds like a good idea/suggestion to be able to customize your own background. I've noticed everytime I refresh the page, a diff background shows up. Checked settings, doesn't seem to be an option to customize background. However, you could provide direct feedback to the hangouts team. In order to do so:

Please use the send feedback feature within Hangouts (clicking on the horizontal three-dots). This will directly send your suggestion straight to the hangouts team. The more feedback given about a certain feature, the more likely that feature will be implemented.

Re: Can you make a button to "report abuse" in Hangouts conversation thread?

I have sent screenshot of abusive conversation threads from scammers pretending to be celebrities through the Help and Feedback button as you suggested. Please note these criminals have no profile pages on Google+ so I can't report their profiles. Can you please respond if anyone actually pays
