    when using google hangouts on 5s the front camera is messed up. back camera is ok and front camera is ok when using it normally or when using facetime etc tested it before i posted.

    also tried restarting phone and re-installing hangouts but get the same problem, has anyone else with hangouts tried this?

    I haven't tested out the video chat through Google Hangouts on my 5S yet, but it wouldn't surprise me if this is a bug on Google's end.

    Hangouts has been an absolute piece of garbage since they launched it. No HTML linking, constant crashes, problems syncing, etc. Some of these issues have been addressed in updates, but it was no where near ready for launch when they did.

    Yup sounds like a bug on googles end if the camera is working right for everything else. Hopefully an update will come out soon.

    Yep it's a known issue on the 5s.

    Google hangouts works much better on android devices.
