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
