Wanted to check if there is a way to see what is the IP address of my own Gmail (Hangout) account of my Android device.

I don't have direct access to the device right now. But my Gmail/Google+/Hangouts etc. are configured and are online. I wanted to trace the device using the IP address which it is using.

I already checked this question. It asks about the IP address of another person in chat. What am asking is my own IP address.

If all you want is to find the IP address of your Android, just visit a site like WhatsMyIp.org or just type ip as a Google Search.

If that's not what you're asking about, we need more details. – Al E. Jun 28 '13 at 13:55
@AlEverett, Thanks for the response. Please check the updated information. I need the ip from the device which I dont have direct access to. The only access I have is the gmail/hangouts that I can login to same account from the desktop browser. – coder284 Jun 28 '13 at 14:18
The question which I asked is a straight forward one. Whether the 'Account Activity' feature in gmail show the android hangouts ip address or not. I don't understand why it is down voted. – coder284 Jun 28 '13 at 14:20
Well, for one thing, it's off-topic here. If you're trying to track down a missing phone android.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/lost-phone might be helpful. – Al E. Jun 28 '13 at 14:21

The answer would appear to be no.

Gmail last activity shows IP addresses, but only for Gmail activity, and even then not for the Android Gmail app (presumably unless you force it to log in).

Your Google Account Recent Activity page doesn't show IP addresses, just locations. And, even so, I only see sign-ins, not any generic Hangout activity.

Do you have Dropbox? Perhaps you can find the IP address of your phone that way.

if you send an email to yourself, but from your mobile phone, (obviously from any domain except Gmail) you can see the ip address of the phone, with the method used to see the IP of the emails received ..

This isn't much help when the point of finding the IP address is to trace the Android device. Why would the person who has your phone send you an email from your own account? – Al E. Feb 22 '14 at 13:20
