Intermittent Hangouts Keyboard Problem

I'm having an issue with opening hangouts and the keyboard not inputting anything into the message field. The keyboards responds to keys pressed but nothing shows up.

I have to close Hangouts from Recent Apps and reopen it to get the keyboard to work. Happens quite often but not everytime.

Problem is on a Nexus 5 with 4.4.2. This is my second Nexus 5 so I'm thinking it's a bug in the software but haven't found anyone else with the issue.

Any ideas?

Thanks

or it could be a mod that your using(xposed?), or an app that you have installed interfering. honestly, this is the first ive heard of such an issue. you are using the stock keyboard?

Yup stock keyboard. I can't think of any apps that may be causing the issue other than "Notify Me" I haven't looked deep enough into whether it only happens randomly when swiping from the popup notification or not.

Going to have to pay attention to that.

I've experienced this a few times. Usually I just back out and re-open the message thread and It's fixed.

Good to know I'm not the only one! It's a pretty irritating issue which is about to force me to find a new app for SMS!

So I solved my issue. I was using a notification app called "NotifyMe!"

Since removing it, I haven't had any more keyboard issues.

Yeah, even I face this issue... However, I'm on a custom rom and use SwiftKey.
I face this issue not only in Hangouts but also when I use whatsapp as well.
But it happens rarely so didn't give it much thought..

You can determine if it is a 3rd party app interfering by rebooting your phone into Safe mode. If the problem goes away, you know it's one of your apps such as the OP's "Notify Me" which appears to of been his cause for this issue.
