    Default Google Nexus 5 - Hangouts Sending Twice :'(

    Hangouts keeps sending messages twice and i don't know how to fix this. It is very annoying because my friends get angry because i always send twice. Is their a fix for this or Google just has to update it?

    Do you have another messaging app installed such as Go Sms? If you do then that may be the issue. This usually occurs when you have another messaging app. If this is the case than try uninstalling the third party messaging app.

    Not sure why this is happening for your setup. I travel a lot for my job, and use hangouts exclusively to send messages to the wife, and this hasn't happened for me. I haven't counted the amount of texts I've sent with this phone so far, but it's in the hundreds.

    My point of this response is that it likely isn't a system wide problem happening to everyone, and may be a software conflict of some sort on your phone.

    I had the same problem as friends would tell me they were receiving my texts twice. What I didn't realise is as I was sending the SMS I would quickly close the app as it was still sending out of habit to which the SMS would go into some sort of outbox and send it again automatically once it found signal without it showing. Now I wait on the app until it says it has sent and then close the app to which is now sends just the once without a hitch.
