Im having TONS of problems all of the sudden with Hangouts and MMS messages.

For a few weeks now when i try and send someone a MMS Hangouts keeps FCing then i reload the app and it FCs over and over and over again. And every time it FCs the other person gets the picture so i end up sending it over and over and over again. It keeps doing this till i can get into the thread delete the message and then go and clear the data from the App.


Then starting today i cant receive MMS anymore. I just get a "Image Downloading tap to retry" message. I tap it and it just sits there with the dancing dots. And now when i go back farther into threads where i had already received pictures. They are just big empty squares with dancing dots.

Anyone else having this issue? And is there a fix?

Admittedly I don't use Hangouts, but I do use 8sms which is essentially the old messaging app, from 4.3 iirc, rebuilt from source. I have been using it on multiple devices running KitKat with no issues.

If you would like to continue using Hangouts, I will do some tests and attempt to recreate the issue on my devices.

Try going to Settings>Manage Apps and clear data from Hangouts, and even possibly uninstall the updates, then reinstall and see if that works

I did all of that it didnt help.

MMS suddenly started working about 90% a few hours later for receiving.
