Can't get Hangouts to update on wifes phone; update worked on mine.
yesterday a new version of Hangouts was released and I updated mine (version 1.2.016).
I went to the Play Store on my wifes Note and hangouts didn't show as an updateable item so I uninstalled Hangout updates and went back to the store. It showed Hangouts dated Sept 25th so I figured it would update properly. it didn't. still stuck on prior version.
next I deleted Data, Cache and force stop, rebooted phone and tried updating hangouts again (which at this point had been reverted to Talk). unfortunately after all this rigamarole, her phone still has version 1.1.xxx of hangouts.
