    Hello everyone,

    I was not sure which forum to post this in. So I went with All other Software.

    My issue:

    For some reason this evening when I got home images and icons stopped displaying on google related apps. I was using my Huawei tablet to answer a message that I had received on hangouts and there were no profile pictures and images that had been loaded into the chat could not be seen.

    I tried to see if this was just on my tablet but it was also on my smartphone as well.

    I then went to check if it was just hangouts affected by this weird glitch. At that point, I also discovered that the icons on google playstore also could not load up on the tablet.

    I did a google search for various solutions and other people who had this problem changed their DNS and it sorted it but mine is still not working correctly.

    On my Laptop I can see the icons and pictures but it loads very slowly. As it got later the smartphone could also load the images but again painfully slow.

    I have reset the tablet, cleared the cache, app data, altered the DNS. Nothing seems to work.

    Does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem?

    Thank you in advance

    Stoneberg

    No snark intended: Wait it out.

    I cannot count the number of times where images or contact names "disappeared" from Hangouts only to mysteriously reappear hours to days later. It seems to carry over to other Google services, as a transient problem, too.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I have had minor issues with the profile pictures before but never with the play store.

    I will wait it out and see if it sorts itself.
