Default Pictures in hangouts not working

Hangouts always used to work flawlessy. In the past days I am not able to sent pictures. There's only a retry button but it never works. I would be thankful for solutions.

Many thanks

I'd double check the APN settings and if those are correct, then install another app that can send messages and test with that. If that doesn't work, then you might look in many of the texting apps as they will allow you to add your own APN as well to make sure it is Hangouts and not the settings giving you issues.
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s

Thanks, other messenger work fine. And the apn is correct. I just added another Google account, and sending messages with pictures using this account in hangouts works. It seems to have something to do with my account.

Hmm, that's an odd one. Maybe try changing the password on the 1st account so it will force you to sign back in. Maybe that'll be enough to jump start the MMS for that account again.

I have had the same problem with my LG G Flex. I had to browse to /etc/hosts file and it should contain some strings about "account.google" or something like that. Delete that line and it should work fine.
