@sant0s did workaround mentioned on linked thread not solve your issue?

Thank you for reporting – looks like I can reproduce the issue you’re seeing as well. What’s strange is that this only seems to apply (for me) to the Hangouts extension; Attempting to make calls via the Hangouts website seems to work without issue (note that Device Recognition must be set to Allow all.

Would you mind trying this as well? Disable the Hangouts extension, visit and try to make a call as you normally would. Let me know the results.

Confirmed that it works from without the extension


Lovely – glad you have at least that route available to you. I will reach out to the team regarding the hangouts extension to discuss what may be causing the conflict.
