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.

Missing Hangouts notifications because of multiple devices
Posted on Monday July 23, 2018

Instead of showing up on all my devices, it's like Hangouts tries to guess where it should notifications--and guesses incorrectly, sending it to a device I'm not using at the moment. How does Hangouts decide where to send notifications? How can I set it up to display on all of my devices? This

Hangouts tells friend signed out until its been 15 minutes
Posted on Sunday July 22, 2018

Whenever my girlfriend signs out of Hangouts, it doesn't say she signed out until it's been 15 minutes. Same thing happens on the app for iPad. Sometimes it messes me up when I want to talk because I think shes active. I suggest that to be fixed because I want to know exactly when she signed
