2 days ago on 25th August I had an OS update and installed it sucessfully - according to the install feedback.
However, since the update, a pop up window related to Google Chats has started appearing every few minutes.
It does not matter which app I am actually using it just keeps coming back. It stops music and video, comes up whilst typing messages and using the internet.
It does not matter whether I select 'Agree' or 'Use without chat features' - it's driving me crazy and I cannot find a way to stop it.
Anyone know how to stop this?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks, just followed that thread through, when I go to More Connections I don't have an option to turn off chats but then I don't think it's installed, I cannot find it in the apps list.
Looks like the other user's problem magically went away after a week or so?

I read through the thread linked by AndrewL but I do not have an option to disable chat from Message Settings.
I have spent a fair while communicating with my service provider who suggested going into Settings>General Management>Reset>Reset Network Settings and then restarting the phone. (make sure you know your wi-fi passwords, had a minor wobble there.).
When this didn't work the advisor sugested uninstalling the OS !! Yeah right. I refused to do this and the help session ended.
Maybe 10 minutes later I get a text from my Service Provider;-
So I've rebooted the phone and (fingers crossed) I've had a couple of hours without the pop up window appearing.
So it may be worth a call to your service provider if you are (still) experiencing issues @Busby63 .
I will update here if I stay pop-up free for 24hrs.

Hi, have you experienced problems with a keyboard after this update? I have severe issues with typing in all apps after I installed the update.
Keyboard lags almost with every word you type, sometimes it doesn't recognize the touch (or does not output any letter even if you press once or twice) or suddenly it prints like three or four same letters. Very annoying! I have rebooted the phone and switched the keyboard, but it didn't help.
I have tested the touchscreen itself with an app, but it seem to work fine.
