I stopped receiving notifications in Hangouts on my phone.  It doesn't let me know I've received messages unless I go in and check.

Best answer
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.

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.

Yup, clearing the app cache works. Though not an obvious solution when the notifications stops working. Thanks for the solution.
