Long article for a very simple concept:
That's it. Just saved you reading 1500 words.
Might help to say what country you want to call. If you use an Android phone, you can install hangouts dialer for free calls to most numbers in the US and Canada.
> can install the GV app on the FI phone so that when people call the GV number it will ring through to the GV app
To my experience it doesn't work.
This is what works:
You need to download the dialer component:
And also be forewarned that it will not use your phone's number for outgoing calls so people will often be a bit confused at first.
You're sure you have Hangouts logged into your Fi account, yes? Have you tried installing Hangouts Dialer and dialing out from that to see if it goes through? If it doesn't even then, chances are something is blocking the Hangouts backend when you're trying to make a call.
If you have an android smartphone you can make free calls through Google Hangouts Dialer even if you don't have a plan set up on your phone.
AT&T sees it as you forwarding a call to a US number, and Project Fi will see it as receiving a call while abroad, which is a flat 20c/min fee, so in this instance Fi will be the one charging you. You can try installing Hangouts Dialer and enabling inbound calling in the settings to receive calls over data, therefore bypassing the 20c/min charge.
You can call the US for free over wifi, or in a country that TMO offers free data through using Hangouts Dialer coupled with a free google voice number. Calls within the country you're visiting are often a few cents a minute too, so that can save you if you need to call places while you're there.
But the TMO visual voicemail app should download your voicemail over your data connection, which is free in over 140 countries. I'm not sure about charges for incoming, unanswered calls. Might want to check with TMO on that one.
Google Voice number + Hangouts Dialer works pretty well for me.
It uses about 0.6 MB per minute, but can use less if you are on a slow connection.
One way to do it is to exclusively use Hangouts Dialer instead of the stock blue dialer for your calls. It will always call out over WiFi or data, and therefore you wouldn't be charged 20c/minute for calls, just the standard Google Voice rates + whatever data you used, if you didn't have WiFi at the time.
Calls back to the US via Hangouts Dialer are free, so that would make calls so much cheaper than calling over the cellular network.
Google hangouts has free calls within USA and Canada if you have a headset on your computer or wifi on your phone.
Click here for the Android app.
Click here for the chrome addon.
That's all Hangouts Dialer does. It only works over data (wifi or 3G/LTE). It does not use minutes. The built-in Phone dialer uses real-phone-minutes.
My ex uses the Hangouts Dialer to get around this. You'll have to login with the Google Acct the work number is on. She said texts work also.
It's not really too good to be true, because it is true. Any country that is in Fi's supported countries list doesn't charge anything extra for texts and data, you're charged the same for them as if you were back home. In addition to that, Fi has the advantage of dialing out over data with your Project Fi number as the caller ID if you use Hangouts Dialer
Calls back to the US via Hangouts Dialer are free+ whatever data you use for the call if not on WiFi. International calls via Hangouts Dialer use the Google Voice rates + whatever data you use for the call. Often times calling out via that app ends up being much much cheaper than the flat 20c/min rate for every call with the regular blue dialer.
Yes. This is how my wife and I called each other while on vacation at a resort outside the US without an international phone plan. Just download the Hangouts Dialer app from the play store and have calls route through there: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer&hl=en
I know the frustration and I have the solution! This is Hangouts Dialer, different than Hangouts. I had to change the gmail address on the second number, then sign into this app with it. It works GREAT!
I use it to call landlines and mobiles regularly. I'm pretty sure I'm not just having conversations with myself.
It is true that someone else can't use their mobile or landline to call me on hangouts (though I think this might be possible in the US if you get a google number).
EDIT: It's called 'Hangouts Dialer'. This is proof (it literally says "Hangouts Dialer - Call Phones").
Calls outside of WiFi and outside of data (aka, using Hangouts Dialer or any other VOIP calling app) cost a flat rate of $0.20 per minute
Both Google Hangouts and Skype have a platform to call phone numbers using internet. You will appear on your friend's phone as a random number, but paying more you can get a fixed number.
You will pay around 1 cent per minute and as it goes through a phone line, you shouldn't have problems. Sometimes it's handy to have to call phone lines in foreign countries for cheap.
Btw, I use hangouts for the simple fact that I have already all the numbers there. Usually it works like charm, even with 3G. But using slow internet connections it doesn't.
Interesting. Something must have changed, because that's different from what the app description for HD says in the Play store.
> Now call any phone number in the world from your Hangouts app without using your cell plan minutes. Most calls to US and Canada are free!
> Download and install the Hangouts Dialer to start making phone calls in the Hangouts app. After installation, you can access all voice calling features directly from Hangouts or use Hangouts Dialer as a shortcut to make phone calls from the dialer screen in Hangouts.
> Make phone calls over data from the Hangouts app - call any phone number, including landlines.
> Use Outbound Caller ID - people who you call will see your verified number when you call them (no more appearing as Unknown!)
> Connect with your Google Voice number to make VOIP calls in the Hangouts app from your Google Voice number.
> Notes: Mobile carrier and ISP charges may apply for data use. Voice calls to Hangouts users are free, but other phone calls might come with a charge. View our calling rates at http://www.google.com/hangouts/rates.
Hangouts Dialer is just an add-on app for Hangouts to provide a phone like dialer in the Hangouts app for placing VoIP Hangouts voice calls. It's not disabled and causes no problems with Fi. Disabling Hangouts on the otherhand does cause problems with Fi. If you don't have the Hangouts Dialer already installed, you can install it from Play Store. And then you open Hangouts and there is a Dialer tab that you can use to place data calls. You will get charged for the data usage over celluar, but I think it's generally less than 1MB/minute.
Another option is using Hangouts Dialer to call over data when WiFi isn't available. Calling over data like this is still at the WiFi rate (2c/minute in this case) +whatever data the call uses. Much much cheaper in the long run than calling over cellular every time.
Volte won't work, but I found a work around by someone on an XDA thread that uses Hangouts dialer , which in reality is just like WiFi calling/Volte in the sense that the calls are ported through WiFi (when it's turned on and connected) and uses Data when you're note connected to WiFi. I'm also on t-mobile and have the g4, but I really want to switch to the note 7 exynos variant instead of the snapdragon. (or maybe lg v20). But was initially worried about not being able to have the features if not having a t-mobile variant.
I've tried Hangouts dialer and it's been pretty good. Other callers actually say I sound louder when using Hangouts dialer (I was on WiFi), when compared to t-mobile WiFi calling.
What you need is Hangouts Dialer. I have used it on a variety of phones, Moto X 2013, OPO, Nexux 5, etc. Works great.
While it uses either Wi-Fi or data I'd be careful transitioning from Wi-Fi to data and vice versa.
While you can't use it as your primary (default) dialer, you can use it as a dialer from the Hangouts Dialer app.
I use Google Messenger as my texting app.
Make sure you get the hangouts dialer if you're on Android, you need it to dial via your GV number. Not sure if it's integrated on iOS.
Yup! It's with the hangouts dialer.
"Call any phone number in the world from your Hangouts app without using your cell plan minutes. Most calls to US and Canada are free!"
Ah, that's because Google makes it a separate download from the Play Store. Install it and you'll get a Hangouts Dialer!
Mighty Text will show your texts and calls on your tablet and works very well. You will not be able to make calls; however, you could use the Google Hangouts dialer (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer&hl=en). If you are not in US or Canada you won't get gree calls.
I've been using my Google number for years now. Most of GVoice features intergrate into Hangouts just fine. There's a Hangouts Dialer so you can send/recieve calls using your GVoice number. If you would like to use a regular phone I have a OBi that also lets me send/receive calls using GVoice. I think I could answer any of your concerns about it.
Con hangouts podés. Leé esto.
Para llamar desde Android instalá esta applicación Hangouts Dialer.
This can be easily done. Install Google's own Hangouts Dialer App and the Google Voice App.
I set my teenage son up that way and he's used if for years like that. Placing and receiving calls on an old Samsung Galaxy S7 with no service and wifi only.
With all the WiFi hotspots available, he was able to make and receive calls almost anywhere. If he was with me in an area without WiFi, I'd turn on my hot spot on my phone, he'd connect, and keep on Smilin' & Dialin'.
It was relatively immediate. I don't recall. Grab hangouts dialer to replace your text message and dialer apps: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer
I've never looked back.
I actually also piggy back off a Wi-Fi hot spot on my work phone, so I pay $0 for a phone number (other than the one time parting fee from Google voice), which is nice.
While porting your old.phone will still ring.
If you got an Android phone, you can install This app made by Google. It lets you dial out to USA numbers for free.
For (1), try using Hangouts instead of the normal phone app to ensure calls use data (VOIP with rates matching Google Voice, inc. free to US). On Android, I believe you need to get the Hangouts Dialer app. I think on iOS, it's still built into Hangouts.
For (3), its going to be very dependent on location and even on the device. If you're more rural, it's probably going to be worse. Also, I work in a building with thick walls, even on the interior, and in some places, I get weak but usable signal most of the time, until someone opens a door or an elevator moves to a particular location (probably changing how the signal is bouncing). When I upgraded from a Nexus 5X to a Pixel 3, I got more reliable signal.
For (4), I recall a while back that other people were complaining that they were connecting to Canadian towers on the US side of the border, and getting charged for international calling. Probably not an easy problem to fix correctly.
Yeah, I am using eSIM as well but I didn't port my number. I am thinking of just using Visible for data and using hangouts for call and texts and then when I travel switch over to Google Fi so I can get service where I am.
Make sure you download hangout dialer from Google (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer)
So not sure if you are in limbo or not but this is what I did
To use hangouts do this go into Hangouts --> Settings --> Account --> Click your e-mail address --> Then check off use for Google Fi SMS and Incoming phone calls.
I'm currently outside the US as well.
As you've already mentioned, whenever I have to make a regular phone call, I use the Hangouts Dialer app to make WiFi calls back to the US (with Airplane Mode on and manually turning on WiFi) as a temporary workaround until Hangouts gets fully depreciated.
It even tells you if you're about to be charged $0.19/min. before you dial (in case you're not connected to WiFi).
No one's forcing you to use the Hangouts Dialer app for your default calling app. It's just for when you decide to make a regular international phone call (which is becoming rarer as the years go by).
But to be blunt, by default, I try using WhatsApp, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Viber, Facetime Audio etc. for international calls (it's free and barely uses data).
As for your situation, maybe try using a VPN with a US server to "re-activate" in the US?
Google Hangouts has a dialer add on that allows free calls to the US, but the call quality is pretty dismal (last time I tried it, any way). I'd use VOIP as most providers charge 1 cent a minute. voip.ms is one I've used and you only pay or what you use, however it requires some technical knowledge to set up software to make it work.
You can call phones for free over wifi with the Hangouts Dialer: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer
Thank you for this. I installed the Hangouts dialer and I can now make WiFi calls both through hangouts and through the system dialer. Apparently, the system dialer still depends on the Hangouts dialer behind the scenes. Here is the link to the app that is needed on my Nexus 5x: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer
If you want to save even more money switch to Speakout pay-as-you-go and make as many of your outgoing calls as possible with the Google Hangouts Dialer, you can make unlimited free outgoing calls with it to anywhere in the US and Canada over WIFI.
If you really want to be frugal Speakout is the best, $25 dollars can last you the whole year depending on your usage, it does for me, so $2 a month for a cell phone while most of my friends are spending $50-$100 a month.
You can get their sim cards from 7/11 or from https://www.speakout7eleven.ca
Another pro tip for using Speakout is to check you voicemail using Hangouts over WIFI so it doesn't charge your minutes. You can do this by verifying your number in the Hangouts app and then call Speakout's voicemail number at 778-288-3749.
Yes, Hangouts itself has been for a long time. Hangouts Dialer is what also needs to be installed, to make calls.
Verifying your number is the step that failed for some in the past, but that's more of a YMMV scenario.
You can only call people in Quebec while you stay there. You can't call someone outside of the province your in, even if your home province is different. So if your from Ontario, and you go to Quebec, it will be long distance to call someone with an Ontario number even if they guy is right beside you. Text messages will still be free. If you really do need to call someone and don't want to pay the long distance charge, you can use google hangout to call them if they have a North America number using data or wifi.
Install Hangouts dialer, free calls to numbers in the US and Canada. You can even set it to use your real phone number as the outgoing caller ID.
I am not familiar with EU laws about phone numbers but that would be the only reason I can think of that would make it not work over Wi-Fi.
Texts should work over the internet no problem through the Google voice app. If you are talking about calls you need to use the hangouts dialer app . There is toggle switch in your hangouts settings to allow incoming calls
Thanks (personally I downvote any submission that has a misleading title - otherwise we are rewarding them for click-bait titles.)
But also note that this probably uses the same backend service as the hangouts dialer which has the same features and has been available for a couple years: it allows free outbound calls to any North American phone, you can associate your phone number with it, and in my experience it is very reliable and has great sound quality.
To add on to this, Hangouts Dialer always calls out over data/WiFi and it uses the Google Voice calling rates. This means that calling a US number over Hangouts Dialer while on data that the call is free+ whatever data Hangouts uses for the call. If on WiFi, then the call is entirely free, if the hotspot doesn't charge for connecting to it, of course. Calling an Italian number via Hangouts is less than 20c in most cases, so it would save you tons of money in the long run compared to always getting charged 20 cents/minute for every call regardless. If you think you'll be calling a lot while out and about, Hangouts Dialer is definitely worth considering, /u/freshme4t
If you have an android phone, download hangouts dialer. Free phone calls to Canada and the US. No subscription, no credit card details needed. You can actually use it from your PC too if you have a google account.
You mean the Hangouts dialer?
Works fine for me. Well, there's a pretty bad latency, so I don't use it but it does make and receive calls.
I am, but Hangouts also allows you to use your Wi-Fi connection to make phone calls on your telephone number. Because I live in Boston and am a student, I have generally poor reception indoors and find that using Wi-Fi to make phone calls results in many less calls dropped.
It's an augment to the app you can pick up here.
How's your Hangouts app, do you have it disabled? Try opening it then pressing Home (leaving it running in the background) once it's fully loaded.
After that, check the following setting: in the Phone app, go to Settings---> Calls----> Configure WiFi Calling and make sure it is turned on.
If it still doesn't work for you, try installing Hangouts Dialer and use that to dial out when connected to WiFi.
Yes, and if you integrate Google Voice with Hangouts and install Hangouts Dialer you can even receive calls to your Google Voice number over data or WiFi, on the same device you're using the local SIM on.
You can install the hangouts dialer and do everything over data. It will be over your goggle voice number though. This is with an Android phone. I am not sure about the iPhone.
Are you paying for long distance? You shouldn't have to. You can make calls for free on your cell phone with Google Hangouts or use HubDialer (instead of LiveVox) with your landline.
HubDialer (Doesn't call cell phones, so it's better to use LiveVox if you can):
To briefly clarify: you can call the dialer internationally for free through Google Hangouts on your computer or using the Google Hangouts Dialer app on your phone.
If you download the Hangouts app, you're able to make free calls to anywhere in Canada/the US.
iPhone and Android
/u/mrbobsy I see this thread is old, did you get it working?
What I found works is to install the Hangouts Dialer app, then the option in the Hangouts app for 'Incoming phone calls' shows up again.
The stock dialer app, no, it has no association with Google.
Maybe if you used the Hangouts Dialer, but even then, I doubt it'll send it right to voicemail.
I recommend this option as well. Only downside is if you want a new number (if you moved out of state for example) it's a $10 port.
Google hangouts dialer lets you make the calls from your phone through the Hangouts app easily.
It's a completely new application that can replace Skype, not a 3rd party drop in replacement client.
>It's TOX : https://tox.chat/
But it cannot call normal numbers. For that there is
>Google Hangouts Dialer : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer&hl=en
PS: I am not saying people should stop using Skype, but pointing out alternatives.
Hey Google. You know how the playstore has the "Email Developer" Option?
You know how years ago we stressed that devs should be using that, and stand behind your proudcts.
Well yours just goes to a no-reply email called "apps-help", that basically sends you a "go fuck yourself" when you're trying to contact teams to tell them about issues.
How about you stand behind your products google, at least have it initiate a support ticket. Like wtf.
Try the dialer reset codes at the bottom of this post
Start with ##UPDATE#, and wait a few days to see if it fixes it. If not, try the next ones.
An alternative would be to use a seperate VOIP app, like Hangouts Dialer
It's $0.49/minute without a special plan. http://www.verizonwireless.com/landingpages/international-long-distance-in-us/
There are lots of VoIP apps that allow you to call for cheaper. Google Hangouts (on Android, install Hangouts Dialer) will let you call Canada for free.
I'm guessing you used the Google Voice dialer, which routes through your carrier (T-Mobile) rather than Google Voice IP services. In order to guarantee the use of Google Voice IP, download the Hangouts Dialer app from the Google Play Store and use that to make international calls.
Also make sure to disable "call forwarding" on your Google Voice accounts as it forwards Google Voice calls to your carrier.
On that note, if your international calls are being made to Canada or Mexico, you should be able to update your plan to include them for free thanks to T-Mobile's recent Uncarrier Amped revolution.
I had Fi set up in a similar way (2 Google accounts, 1 with the GV number I always use and a separate 1 with Fi).
Hangouts and Hangouts Dialer (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer&hl=en) can solve your issue. Because you can have multiple Google accounts logged in on one phone, once Hangouts Dialer is installed, just check the box to have calls ring in Hangouts for your GV number account. This will allow you to make and receive calls to your GV number inside of Hangouts. It will require that you use Hangouts for texting and calls with your GV number and not use the stock dialer or messaging apps.
You can use Google voice to make unlimited calls. This would use your data. You can even port your number to Google voice and not have to worry about a second number. You can try out now and see if it works for you.
This biggest problem is Google voice does not do mms messages yet.
Whoa. That sucks.
But I thank you for the info because some searching led me to sources, and then solutions... Hangouts Dialer App.
Here is my best effort to make a suggestion for your budget distribution.
I'm thinking you'll be able to make it for about a month. Here's my breakdown.
Sleep on streets and parking lots, you'll have to be stealth in your van though and manage bathroom usage at your gym accordingly.
$80 - 1 month of 24-hour gym membership plus whatever BS activation fee they may charge. Shower there and use the restroom when you need. Don't work out too hard. You'll require more calories and you'll sweat more in your clothes, requiring you to use the laundromat. If you think you can cope with non-24 hour gyms, then do it and save on some activation/monthly fees.
$20 - various toiletries and supplies.
$90 - 1 year of phone service with 2 phones. Turn off data immediately and use public wifi where possible. Use calls for phone interviews only. For noncritical communication, set up a Google Voice account, and get the Google Hangouts Dialer and Google Voice apps on your shiny new LG Fiestas. These two apps combined will let you use your Google Voice account to call and text for free, so long as you have internet.
$100 - 1 month of fuel for your van. You'll need to be conservative with fuel but will also need to travel to do basic things like laundry. Try to have "home base" at a spot where you have everything you need nearby and also near job interviews.
$100 - Interview and other clothes at a thrift store. Not too few that you need to travel to the laundromat often, but not so many that you eat into your budget. Double-wear if you don't sweat a lot.
$40? - Laundry for 2 months. Keep in mind you'll need to wash more often, thus spending more.
Food and Other Expenses
$170 - All the money left in your budget after 1 month's of expenses. Unfortunately I don't have much knowledge on how to do food for cheap - others might.
Yep you need a job within a month. If you still want to help Bernie, get yourself a bare minimum job so that you can help him on weekends. Now is not the time when you'll be donezo in 30 days. Apply for a ton of jobs now so that you can line them up ASAP. Others mentioned Craigslist gigs or other temp gigs as a quick way to get some spending money, and that's a great idea too if you are running low or don't have job interviews lined up that day.
Google Voice with Hangout Dialer:
You can use Hangouts Dialer to make sure the call goes through wifi.
It's both, you can make WiFi calls with Google Voice using the Hangouts Dailer: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer
Gear up. Use cardboard, leaves, pine needles or a foam-air mat under you for insulation.
Carry a water bottle and the means to fill it. Water filter if you like, or some 30 minute water purification tablets. Don't buy the 8 hour tablets. Stupid to wait 8 hours for a drink. Add several 2 liter bottles when crossing the dry places.
Cat food can alcohol stove, or beer can wood burning stove, or hobo stove, buddy burner stove. Always use a cardboard/foil wind screen with a stove. Make a billy can or buy a stainless steel dog bowl without the rubber feet at Dollar tree and add a wire bail. Use aluminum foil for a lid if you like. Carry a spoon and a lighter.
Carry a days worth of non perishable food for times when you can't find something else. Oatmeal, peanut butter, ramen, instant potatoes, Knorr rice/noodle packets, coffee or tea. Learn to cook and then learn to cook over a campfire.
Will you have a cell phone? A wifi capable device can be invaluable for information. Any cell phone with signal can call 911, even without a plan. Use Google Voice and the Google hangouts dialer to make free wifi phone calls in the US and Canada. Also look at Freedom Pop for limited free cell phone and data.

>However, if I'm using Hangouts on my phone (we're all Android), then it's using minutes on my Ting plan.
>I just tested with a 24 minute Hangouts call to a friend who only has a landline (no cellular and minimal internet for him) and this definitely counted on my Ting minutes for my line.
Not possible. You're making a regular phone call somehow. My guess is you have a default app set wrong, so that when you think you're making the call with Hangouts it's actually switching to the built in Phone app and making the call that way. But... let's check some things out:
Have a Google voice account and get a google voice number. Hopefully you already did this. If not, all your calls from hangouts will be from some random number Google owns and people won't be able to call you back.
Make sure you have the Hangouts Dialer App installed.
Open Hangouts. When it's showing your chats list, you should have a Chats tab and a Phone tab. Click on the phone tab.
Go to this screen and place your call.
When your call connects, it should look like this.
If you click the 3 dots in the corner and choose "Help" it should talk be help on using Hangouts calls. If not, you're not in the hangouts dialer somehow.
If things aren't right in step 6, you should go to System Settings-> Apps and clear the app defaults for apps like Hangouts, Hangouts Dialer, Phone, Dialer, etc. You might have to click something to make it show system apps.
Use Hangouts Dialer

I would go an extra step and use Hangouts Dialer and that is guaranteed to use data.
> Google Voice is telling me I need to have another US number and service in order to use the ported number at all.
Hrmm…? Where and how is Google Voice "telling you" that you need this?
It is possible to make calls and texts to and from a Google Voice number purely over VoIP, without a "real" US mobile phone being involved at all. I've been doing it for years, and frequently traveling while traveling abroad.
So please explain the difficulty that you're running into with more specificity.
> I see you cannot use a foreign phone number to link to your number, …
This part is correct. If you want to make calls and texts from a phone without using VoIP, Google Voice will only forward them to a US number.
Which is why you should want to use VoIP while traveling abroad. Either…
I have same plan, here is what I use.
For data use:
Setup free unlimited minutes (VOIP) US/Can (that do not use plan minutes), configure voicemail, etc (sorta like having DIGITS with separate number, but free, and way better):
Use browser desktop mode/web. Don't install GV app (as it uses plan minutes).
For example, 1,200 minutes is roughly equal to 1GB of 4G LTE data use. No more having to buy extra plan minutes.
(Android) *Dialer app (Does not use plan minutes. In settings, be sure to enable incoming calls):
*May need to also install Hangouts app.
(If Apple, download Hangouts dialer from store)
I use Hangouts Dialer to make phone calls over wifi. It works fine on my Nexus 5
With this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer&hl=en
Does the Hangouts Dialer app work for you?

if you need to call USA only, just use Hangouts... it has free calls to any US number
Huh? It integrates with Hangouts for voip.

Vai ao menu das aplicações instaladas (as versões do android são diferentes por isso é provável teres que procurar um pouco, mas experimenta ver se não está em Opções>aplicações>gerir aplicações>tudo(no topo deve dizer algo desse género (downloads, tudo, no cartão SD, A executar))) procura por dialer (ou telefone ou algo do género) e deve ter uma opção para limpar as preferências da aplicação.
Caso não consigas (ou tenhas desinstalado a aplicação) é provável que tenhas que instalar outra aplicação de telefone (cuidado que algumas utilizam a internet para fazer chamadas) ou então instalares outra ROM.
Also, do you have the Hangouts Dialer app installed?
same thing as the dialer button in that spot on the current app, probably. screenshots 2&3 here
You can make calls from Gmail on the desktop.
Also, try this - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer
Update: Multiple users are reporting this is now resolved. Please try now using the regular dialer.
Hi All - the team is actively investigating this and will provide updates here. You can work around this for now using hangouts.
Make sure you turn this setting off once the outage is over to ensure you don't get double rings.
There are a couple of free plans.
Most commonly people use free wifi to make phone calls with Google Voice, Google Hangouts and Hangouts dialer. Skype to Skype calls are free and Skype to land line is cheap. Facebook lets you make video calls as well as voice and chat to other Facebook accounts.
Mint is $15 per month.
T-mobile offers pay as you go for $3 per month for voice and text only. If you use it a lot then that may not be the best choice but for an emergency phone its not bad.
If you switch to Fi using the same Google account as your Google Voice number you can choose to use that as your Google Fi number. If you port your T-Mobile number in, it will override your Voice number and you will lose it. (https://support.google.com/fi/answer/6246240?hl=en)
As long as you have a data or WiFi connection, you can make calls via the Hangouts Dialer. Texting on Google Fi is free even when you roam internationally.
Once you set up Hangouts to handle SMS for Google Fi you can send and receive texts from anywhere you can log into Hangouts. (https://support.google.com/fi/answer/6188337?hl=en)
This one? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer&hl=en_CA
You can make Google Voice VoIP calls with the Hangouts Dialer app.
Using the hangouts dailer should push the call over LTE.
I'm not 100% what you mean but I think you might want to try the official Hangouts Dialer app.
Literally what he just said. Calls placed with your phone's dialer count against your 100 minutes. Calls placed using the Google Hangouts Dialer count against your data. The rate is about a megabit a minute - so 5 gigs ~= 5000 minutes. If you're on wifi it just goes over wifi (so ... free). If you're using Google Voice as your number, you can also dial out using the Hangouts App on your PC over your home internet and on the other end it looks as if you just called from your phone anyway. Likewise - an incoming call will ring both devices and up to you how you wanna pick it up. Also - you can use the Google Voice app on your phone to route regular calls (that do count vs 100 min) through that save phone number so things are totally transparent to the people you're calling and it doesn't matter if you're calling with your minutes, hangouts dialer over wifi, or your PC.
The app isn't installable here, but https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer Is.
I'm not sure what the difference is.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer&hl=en which is the hangouts dialer or try dialer one or true caller
Check our the latest version of the hangouts dialer on the play store.
Then enable it in the hangout settings.
Use Hangouts Dialer to use it for calls, but it will require a Google Voice account and number.
Google has an app for it, it's called Hangouts Dialer: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.hangoutsdialer&hl=en
The hangouts dialer works well for outbound GV calls via VoIP.
