Hi Eric,

"Not Authorized" is just a fancy way of saying "incorrect password".  In
the case of Hangouts/Gtalk/gmail this means you need to set up an app
password, see
for more info about that.

Alternatively, you can switch to the Hangouts plugin which has a few
benefits over just using XMPP (see
for more info) including a different auth method that doesn't need you to
set up an app password.
