I just updated my Android version to 4.3. However, Google Talk is replaced by Hangouts automatically. I don't like Hangouts, since I cannot see friends who are online/offline. I wish to revert to Google Talk. When I try to uninstall Hangouts, there is no uninstall option for me.
I am using a Samsung S4 smartphone. Does anyone know how to revert to Google Talk?
Updated: Google says they’ve apparently resolved the problem. We’ll update if we hear more about its cause.
A number of sources, including tipsters reporting directly to TechCrunch, as well as Google support forum posters and individuals on Twitter are reporting that Google’s Hangouts service is having some trouble routing instant messages correctly.
Following up on their release of the new KitKat keyboard to Google Play earlier today, Google has also made the new Hangouts v2 available. The big news with this update is the incorporation of SMS/MMS messaging into the Hangouts platform.
I can log into hangouts from my desktop or laptop. I can log into anything google BUT hangouts from my phone.
As soon as I touch the Hangouts icon, it attempts to sign into my valid google account that works fine with everything else.
yesterday a new version of Hangouts was released and I updated mine (version 1.2.016).
I went to the Play Store on my wifes Note and hangouts didn't show as an updateable item so I uninstalled Hangout updates and went back to the store. It showed Hangouts dated Sept 25th so I figured it would update properly. it didn't.
I _just_ got the Neo 2 on Friday and I've been fiddling with it. I know it may be a long shot since Google Talk has been discontinued, but I am trying to prolong my use of it for as long as I can without having to use Hangouts since I strongly do not like Hangouts.
Having said that, do any of you happen to still use Google Talk and are getting your notifications on your Gear?
