Had to manually write phone numbers down today because Google Hangouts apparently doesn't sync anymore, I went to use my Motorola e4 today and my Hangouts call logs and messages never synced, and 12 hours later still have not, in fact if I go to dial out of Hangouts dialer it doesn't recognize any number saved in my account... Don't try to explain to iOS users because they have a product that works.

Hangouts should work fine in Android, too. It has worked on every Android device I've used it on.

Did you give Hangouts permissions for Contacts?

Call syncing through hangouts is a bit unusual. In my experience, hangouts will sync with contacts, but actual calls made through the hangout dialer will not sync across app installs on multiple devices. Calls do show up in the main google voice call log. Hangout "conversations" do sync.

Ya that's what I'm talking about, I don't really use Hangouts but when I do it'd be nice if it didn't present itself like I've never used it before. I've also noticed when I change contact info in Google voice my Hangouts account never shows the changes, the edit contact looks like it's from 2002.

^^I'm not seeing this problem at all. If I edit a contact in the web browser, seconds later that change is reflected on the phone. If I close and reopen hangouts, it too indicated the updated contact.

Make sure under main android settings/accounts/google/yourgoogleaccount, contact syncing is enabled.

That's been my experience, too. I suppose by Hangout "conversations", you are also including text messages, which do also sync.
