Thanks for reaching out! Excellent report, btw.
Since you’re using the extension, you’ll need to tell Brave to allow it to access and enable certain functionality of the browser. We recently implemented a setting for this:

Navigate to [Menu] --> Settings --> Extensions and toggle the Google Hangouts option “on”.

Let me know if this resolves your issue.
