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!  :)

Hi Sher, The easiest way id to grab a Logitech C920 external Webcam, download the software for it and you can zoom in/out pan side to side, etc. They are relative inexpensive and give a MUCH better picture than any built-in HP camera.

Is there really no way to name a thread?

As far as I can tell there is no way to figure out what a thread's topic was without actually reading the thread. When you are working in a single room where multiple topics are being discussed, and a topic gets buried, it seems like the current design only lets you find that thread again by

Cropping or zooming in during Google meets session
Posted on Tuesday October 16, 2018

I work from home and would like to zoom in on or crop my camera view so that you cannot see all of my home space during a work call. I am on an HP laptop on Windows. The camera itself allows me to change to a 4:3 aspect ration from 16:9 but that setting does not carry over to Google Meets. I
