Question Adding contacts from hangouts doesn't update name?

I got a text from a coworker who wasn't in my address book. I figured out how to add the contact from hangouts, but my phone isn't updating the name in the list of received messages, it still appears as if it is coming from a number not in my address book. Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks.

Go into the "People" app and check to see if the number is there. If it is, make sure "Sync contacts" is on in Settings. If it isn't, add your coworker.

Should be good to go after that.
