Hey there,

1. Go ahead and head over to your extensions page - chrome://extensions/ (paste this into your browser address bar and hit enter) - and completely remove Hangouts.
2. Close Chrome
3. Restart Chrome
4. Head over to http://hangouts.google.com and click on the left hand side for the menu.  Select the Chrome icon and re-install Hangouts fresh to see if this solves the issue,  (You can download the App from the left-hand menu if you don't wish to use the web client!)

It's very important to do ALL steps, even if they seem redundant ;)

Hope this helps!

great to hear!

Thanks for the solution but it doesn't fix/address my personal problem. I'm not using/haven't downloaded the Hangouts extension. I'm using the feature in my Gmail inbox. For kicks, I installed the Hangouts extension but it hasn't changed anything on Gmail.

What is your personal problem?

I followed your the instructions, removed hangouts from my extensions. When I click on the link there isn't an option to download, it just opens Hangouts for me under my name. The left pane menu does not give an option to download it.  So I am confused.

Yolanda - when  you go to https://hangouts.google.com - on the upper left-hand side, you should see the 3 dashes, this opens up the menu.  From inside the menu you can download the app/extension!

Let me know if you get stuck!

Hello Jose, Thanks for posting in the Google Hangouts Help Forum. As the option to attach pdf, doc files in the Google Hangouts app, I'd suggest using the "Send Feedback" option in Hangouts to suggest a feature request, as the Hangouts team is tracking these reports directly. Sending in-product

Google Hangouts sound notification issues
Posted on Wednesday April 25, 2018

I am unable to turn off the sound notification on hangouts. The noise is legit one of the most grating noises I have ever heard in my life, and I prefer to either change it, or have it off completely. The only method I have found so far that works is to turn off notifications completely. If I

Hi. At the beginning when using Hangouts both in my PC or mobile, I was able to see a small icon of a PC or a mobile, on left, bottom corner, depending on which device my contacts were using to text me back. Now, I cannot see those icons anymore, not in my PC, nor in my mobile. How can I activate
