Sign in to or out of Hangouts

If you sign in to or out of Hangouts on one device, it won't automatically sign you in to or out of Hangouts on other devices. For example, if you're signed in on your computer, you're not automatically signed in on the mobile app.

You can sign in to Hangouts on your Android device using one or more of your Google Accounts. For example, you can sign in to two different accounts on the Hangouts app at the same time so you can talk to contacts from both accounts.

Sign in to Hangouts for the first time

  1. On your Android device, open the Hangouts app  .
  2. Enter your Google Account information.
  3. Touch Sign in.

Sign in to multiple Accounts

  1. On your Android device, open the Hangouts app  .
  2. At the top left, touch Menu Hangouts Android menu icon.
  3. Touch Settings.
  4. Touch Add account.
  5. Enter your Google Account information.
  6. Touch Sign in.

Sign out of Hangouts

When you sign out of Hangouts on your Android device, you'll appear as unavailable for a Hangout to your contacts. Signing out of Hangouts on one device doesn't automatically sign you out of Hangouts on other devices.

If you're signed in to more than one Google Account on your device, you'll need to sign out of each one.

  1. On your Android device, open the Hangouts app .
  2. At the top left, touch Menu Hangouts Android menu icon.
  3. Touch Settings.
  4. Touch your Google Account.
