    Disable notifications within the stock LG messaging app. Then set notifications for hangouts.

    thank you but when I try to text with hangouts it wants me to invite my contact to hangout, how can I set it so I just use it for SMS and MMS if you get what I'm saying

    I'm not sure that's possible. Random Gmail contacts were inviting me to hang out, which is why I disabled hangouts and use a 3rd party app.

    I was able to get my text to work just fine using Google Hangouts, but was unable to send or receive pictures. Due to this I had to go back to the stock SMS app. I really like the Hangouts much better though. I still am not sure how to get the pictures to work through Hangouts.
