So is the end of Google Talk? I hate the new Hangouts. It's cluttered, slow and resource hungry. GTalk was amazingly simply and effective. I removed Hangouts and installed GTalk back, disabled auto-update, but I'm wondering will Google allow us to keep the regular Talk or kill it of completely?

This new app is horrible IMO.

This might sound naive but I'm a newbie haha. How do you revert back to GTalk? I hate this new setup of hangouts.

You cannot. Even when you now reinstall GTalk, Google will overwrite it with Hangouts soon.

I give it a week before someone here at xda makes a "hangouts that doesn't remove talk" mod

Anyone getting double notifications now? I get hangouts notification as well as gtalk notification. Only thing is when I click the gtalk notification it doesn't go to anything since gtalk doesn't exist anymore.

Any way to fix it to stop the old gtalk notifications?

That's easy, it's making talk that doesn't update that's hard

THAT'S the easy part, check your system partition, Talk is still there (and as far as I know, has never used Play Store to update), Hangouts just blocks it from running. It would probably be as simple as just renaming the talk package name.

No, that's how it works. When you update any system app it leaves the original in the system, hence how you can uninstall updates. What you can easily do is change the package name of the original talk and install it alongside Hangouts

Anyone else having problems with the Google Play Music app after updating?
It crashes immediately on my stock Verizon Xperia Play.
I run fix permissions, reboot, nothing. Clear Dalvik cache, nothing. Uninstall, reinstall, nothing. Even tried converting to a user app, moving to the SD card, nothing works.
It'll boot up, show a "Force Close" dialog, continue to boot into the setup, and when I tap through the buttons, and finally press "Done" it crashes back to my launcher.
Good thing I still have a backup of the older version, but I'd like to use this new look, I like it.

There's people with the Play in the play store reviews complaining the same. I assume Google know about it now

I've noticed that, but I was hoping that maybe I just wasn't doing something right, but I guess it seems to be a real problem.
But I have another play here, unlocked, with CM 7.2, from AT&T, and I updated it, and the app works perfectly. Is it just Verizon Plays?

Possibly, I can't say anymore, only Google would know

    I don't see why everyone wants to have a list of contacts that are "online". Your contact has the app open or not, either way you "text" them and it'll be delivered to their phone, just like sms. It doesn't matter if they're "online" (have the app open?) or not. If you're chatting back and forth with someone, you can tell from the little icon if they're viewing the conversation currently or not, and that's all you really need. I hope they don't add a list like that, it defeats the feeling of this being a texting app rather than a 90's chatting program. SMS support is coming btw ( http://phandroid.com/2013/05/16/google-hangouts-sms ), and having a list of online contacts feels even more out of place then.
