At the moment it seems sporadic issues has taken Google Hangouts down, the instant messaging service from Google is not playing right at this given time and users are not too pleased.
Google Hangouts allows users to send text and video messages for free, many users of this service are coming forward and letting OSM know that they are having issues connecting, and when they do all they are getting is a “Connection Error.”
Most of the issues are happening to those trying to connect to Google Hangouts on desktop, which means the server is having some downtime.
One user said they tried to connect and all they got was Connection Error. Make sure you’re connected to the Internet and try again.” Other users said the same was happening to them.
Other people are having other Google issues at the moment as well, some are saying they cannot access their Gmail; others cannot get into the Google Play Store. Other issues with Google at the moment include sign-in problems, error code 5.
Are you having any problems with Google Hangouts or any other Google services?
