General :: Google Hangouts - Adding Friends / Family

Dec 19, 2013

New to Android and trying figure hangouts little. I am already setup in it, am I required to "add" my friends/family to it before I can do texting and such?

On my phone, I know with the Kitkat update it wants to use Google hangouts. I have not set it to use it as it keeps saying I need to add everyone in people to hangouts.

I want to make sure I am going to spam my friends and family to join hangouts as they are not on it and do not want too.

General :: Google Hangouts - Adding Area Code

Nov 25, 2013

I recently started using Google Hangouts instead of SMS (TextMessaging). The only issue I have is that the numbers I havent added any areacode to gets the areacode for Sweden (+46), and this is ONLY on Google Hangouts.

When I go back to the regular SMS app, the areacode is removed, and I can again send SMS without sending it to Sweden first.

I'm from Norway if it matters (+47). But the phone itself is imported from Sweden, but I'm using Norwegian as language. I checked my gmail. I have my country set to Norway.

I have read a couple links that people have provided about setting up sipdroid and I am completely lost.

General :: Send Text To Family Without Having To Select Contacts Individually In Hangouts

May 5, 2014

I've created groups of a subset of my contacts (friends, family, co-workers etc), but there appears no useful way to use them. I would like to send a text to (say) family without having to select contacts individually in Hangouts, but that does not appear to be possible. Most of the add-on apps I've looked at for group texting are rich with other features I don't care about.

HTC EVO 4G :: Two Family And Friends Groups?

Jun 7, 2010

When I create a contact on the phone and assign a group, there are TWO 'friends' and TWO 'family' groups. All the contacts I setup from my GMail account show up in one 'friends' or one 'family' group. The duplicate groups are both empty. I went to an area where I can delete groups but the empty 'friends' and 'family' groups cannot be deleted. However, it looks like the groups I setup at GMail (where all my contacts are in) CAN be deleted. I'd rather not delete those groups because then those contacts will probably no longer be in a group, and the GMail/GContacts distinction will probably be lost. The reason this is annoying is because when I create a new friend contact from the phone I don't know which 'friends' group to add it to. Has anyone else noticed this? Checking my GContacts only shows one 'friends' group and one 'family 'group', but the way.

Motorola Droid :: Making Friends / Family Use GV

Aug 26, 2010

I can call people directly from my computer with GV (new Gmail integration), I'm really considering telling all my friends to use my new GV number. Right now some of them have my GV number but never call it, just my regular cell number. How did some of you make your friends use the GV number instead of your old one? Maybe I should just steal all their phones when they go to the bathroom or something and program it in myself? I'm wondering if it will add any extra charges through their cell plan. I picked a number that doesn't have an area code of where I actually live, it's actually a city about 4 hours away. That's the main thing I'm worried about, I don't want them to have to have any additional fees when they call/text my GV number.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Sync Ate Friends And Family

Oct 17, 2009

My Outlook had 1 set of contacts, I manually put contacts into the Hero. Everything they synced, odd things could sometimes happen. The latest was about 45 minutes ago when Sync ate the picture of my wife. I decided that the problem HAD to be between Outlook and Hero's contacts. I had noticed during all of my other syncs that the Hero would overwrite the bad data in Outlook for me most times, so I made a very bold decision.I deleted all of my contact info from Outlook (I have now realized that "undo" does not work for this) I then plugged in my phone, and told it to sync, knowing that the Hero would put all of my contact info back in. Do you know what happens next? The HTC Sync manager ate all of my friends and family. Because I gave my wife my BB, I deleted all the contacts from it as well, so now, well, looks like i get to start a) attempting to remember everything, and b) entering it all again by hand.

General :: Enable Google Voice Forwarding On Google Hangouts?

Mar 2, 2014

Would it be possible to add a line of code to the Google Hangouts app on Android to receive forwarded Google Voice calls as it does on the iOS app?

There's been apps like Groove IP that are already able to provide this feature. I'd just like to have this functionality without having to install any 3rd party apps that always have to be running in the background. Google Hangouts is already the primary sms app for Android & so it is already able to receive texts, mms, along with video and voice chats. Thus, it should be somewhat possible to receive call forwarding from Google voice.

General :: How To Delete Google Hangouts From Phone

Aug 23, 2013

Is it possible to delete Google Hangouts from my phone completely?

I don't use it, nor will I ever use it, so why does it have to be on my phone? I am so sick of having it pop up in Play Store reminding me to update it, when I don't even use it. I would rather it be deleted from my phone so I will never be prompted to update it again. The saddest part is they must know what a complete dud this app is as they've removed the uninstall tab on the play store page (well for me its removed and I can't uninstall it from the play store) but they remind me the needs updating ...

General :: Stop Google Music App From Adding Ringtones To Library?

Jul 22, 2013

I've tried hiding my custom tones that I've downloaded at various points in different places on my phone (T-Mobile Galaxy S4), inclding the external SD, but to no avail. For example, I added a high quality .mp3 clip of a old rotary phone ring to use as my ringtone, I put it straight into the ringtones system folder.

Very next time that I start up Google Music, there's new stuff from 'unknown artist," low and behold, the ringtone.

Super annoying, part of the reason I was paying for all access to use Google Music was to have a clean, auto-organized library. I don't want all of my sounds system-wide added to my library, and I can't seem to find any way to change the folders it searches, or even to remove it from the library within the app once it is added.

General :: Adding Songs To Library With Google Play Music

May 20, 2013

So, I was sitting here, and adding music to my library with google play music.. Now... I think the big GMan might have overlooked something. I had around 200 songs uploaded from my computer to Play. Now, I got the trial of All Access, and ive been adding a bit of music with the search and add feature.. So then i thought.. Maybe this is a free way to get audio files. I went to the "Music Manager" application on my computer, and i hit "download my library" and its now downloading all 291 songs, allowing transfer to any device (Like an iPod) 91 of which, keep in mind, I had added via the search feature from the Play Music app on my phone. So, is this a glitch overlooked by Google? Or is it intended to be this way?

Android 3 and 4 have a new option that allows the user to add new a Google Account to the phone by using the Browser Sign-In. The option is available when you try to add a new Google Account to Android (see screenshot).

Use Browser Sign-In with SAML based Single Sign-On? It is not working with our SAML setup.

General :: How To Combine Threads By Person In Hangouts

Apr 11, 2014

I just got a new Android phone and I'm loving the updates since my last one (which was running Jelly Bean). I'm using SMS on the Hangouts app, but I'm confused because it separates SMS messages from Hangout messages even from the same person. I have two different conversations going on with my wife, which is a little frustrating, and not substantially better than just having the Hangouts app separate from an SMS app.

I was hoping the threads would integrate so that I could keep having the same conversation in a single thread, even when I want to use SMS instead of 4G.
