Google Hangouts do not work (anymore)

  • Hi *.

    Google Hangouts does no work anymore. Not on Ubuntu 15.10 and not on Windows.
    The browser keeps wanting to install the hangouts-plugin which is already installed.
    Am I the only one with this failure?
    In case not please advice what to do to make Google Hangouts work again.

    Version: 36.0.2130.29 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: beta
    System: Windows 7 64-bit (WoW64)


    Version: 36.0.2130.29 - Opera ist auf dem neuesten Stand
    Update-Stream: beta Betriebssystem: Ubuntu 15.10 (x86_64; Unity)

    Thank you.
    Best regards

  • From what I recently heard, in passing, on Windows Weekly [Thurrott and Mary Jo], Google Hangouts have been shut down. From my own inability to BEAT anyone into SKYPING, I'm not at all surprised............if the report is true

  • Am I still the only one having this problem?

  • Hi!

    I successfully use the Hangouts addon (install <em>CRX Extension Source Viewer</em> first and use it do install the <em>Hangouts</em> extension from Google). You might have to ”<em>Allow</em>“ cookies from as well as in Opera's privacy settings, in case you selected to generally deny third party cookies.

    The new works for me pretty well, though, either.
