Hangouts not working on mobile data

Can't send a message from your computer

For example none of my photos will load on Google Photos. Super annoying since our phones don't have natively working gallery apps Apparently this is solved with an update but I'm currently without WiFi so I also can't update, nor can I download other gallery apps!

Fix problems with Hangouts

Stuck here til I get any WiFi which just isn't right. Last edited: Jul 10, Google apps working properly now and at least I didn't have to do a factory reset. Kytharsis likes this.

Markzaca , Jul 23, Is one plus going to be sending out a bug fix for this? Is it a one plus issue or Google? Jul 27, Why is there no support? Oneplus phones are useless without google apps.

Welcome to Reddit,

C , Nov 30, I get about the same problem with my one plus 6 with french operator "free mobile" Dolphin is working fine, google applications also except chrome that does not work, I installed chrome beta and it worked but I still get a problem with voice recognition that works only with a wifi connection.

I've had Ting for a little over a month now and rather than use the number I was given, I use my Google Voice number with the hangouts dialer app to make and receive calls and not have to pay for the minutes or texting. Texts work fine but with calls, if somebody calls me and I answer, I can't hear them and they can't hear me.

When I try to call them, sometimes it will ring on my phone and others it doesn't even though it is ringing on their end. When they pick up the phone, neither of us can hear each other. And sometimes, when I call somebody, it rings for a while and rather than going to their voicemail, the call just hangs up and says something about a problem with the network.

These problems don't pop up when I am on wifi and even on cellular, they aren't always present.

How Much Cellular Data Does Google Voice and Hangouts Use?

For my first month or so on the service, I'd say I was able to get and make about half of my calls without a problem but the past few days I haven't been able to get or make any when I am on cellular. I sometimes experience similar issues calling with Skype on cellular although it does seem to be more reliable at calling out than the Hangouts Dialer. Any ideas of what I can do to fix the problem?

I've tried reinstalling the hangouts dialer, restarting my phone, signing out and back in to my Google account and pretty much anything else I could think of. Any help would be great! It sounds like signal, coverage, or latency is making VoIP troublesome. This will always be an intermittent issue since the data latency and delivery is never guaranteed.

Your best bet is to use the phone if reliability is important, that is why it's there. Yeah, its the GSM service. Unless I'm driving around town, its really not an issue since I have wifi at home and work but it can be kind of annoying if I am at the grocery store or something and can't make a call on them. I want to keep my bill as small as possible so I am trying to avoid using the normal phone feature if I can but I'm starting to wonder if I am just going to have to start paying for my minutes.

Honestly, I've stopped using Hangouts entirely.
