To completely remove your Google Hangouts account, you would need to delete your Google Account.  You can read more about deleting your Google Account here: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/32046?hl=en

You can also simply sign out of Hangouts and just not use it if deleting your account is out of the question.  Most people go this route, because they do not want to lose their GMail and other features tied to the account.

If you are wanting to remove your account due to some kind of abuse or harassment, you can always block individuals as well: https://support.google.com/hangouts/answer/2945109?hl=en-GB&co=GENIE.Platform%3DAndroid

Hi JM, People can send you video call invites (it has happened to me several times) but if your settings are 'can only send invite' then the video call will come through as an invite. Penalope

Re: Maintaining Hangouts History on my phone, NOT MY EMAIL
Posted on Thursday April 26, 2018

Hi Tammy, The only way to stop Hangouts conversations from saving to Gmail is to turn off the history. If you don't like stuff saving but don't want to turn off history, then set up a filter for Hangouts conversations to go to trash: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/6579. Penalope

Thank you for the response and followup, I really appreciate it! 1. Is it happening with all pictures or a few or a specific picture or specific contact? It's happening with all pictures, all contacts. For other users, I seem to be able to pull more (or alternate) information than is contained

Typing indicators vanish sometimes while the other person is still typing

Basically, I'll see someone start typing (so their icon unfades and the cycling dot animation appears) and then a few seconds later the dot animation vanishes, but their icon is still unfaded. SOMETIMES this means they are still typing but not always. It's really aggravating because it's
