GTalk / Hangouts

Recently changed my security settings with google to not authorize "less 
secure apps" (whatever that means).  Since then, I haven't been able to 
connect Pidgin to GTalk/Hangouts on Win7.
* I've upgraded to the latest version
* I've used the Gtalk option
* Port 5222 (and 5223)
... etc.

Still can't get it to work.  Once, I got a window to pop up asking if I 
wanted to accept the certificate - I said yes, but it still didn't 
authorize me.

What in tarnation is going on.  Any ideas on how to get this damn thing 
to work?
