Another suggestion is that since iMore is a forum predominantly dedicated to Apple Products, you might consider posting your question on our sister forum: forums.androidcentral.com

Upon further reflection, I wanted to point out that I use my gmail address for the Google Hangouts App on my iPhone and it works just fine.
