    Hangouts Dialer - Call Phones's review

    Published: 2014-11-21, by .

    Hangouts plug-in, allowing you to call any phone number in the world using your data connection.

    • Make calls to numbers around the world with data, not your minutes
    • Competitive prices on non-data calls
    • App itself is redundant- it's just an add on to Hangouts

    "Let's hang out"

    If you've used the Google Voice app in the past, you may have set it to use your Voice number when making calls. These calls still used your carrier minutes, instead of your data signal.

    As a solution, Google has created this second app that acts as a plug-in for Hangouts: Hangouts Dialer. The app adds a dialer tab to Hangouts, allowing you to make outbound calls with your Voice number. Call rates for non-data calls are fairly competitive with services like Skype- but even better- you can make and receive VoIP calls, meaning you can have data-only service and still get calls and texts.

    The Hangouts Dialer does require an update to the Hangouts app (version 2.3). Once you have it, the dialer itself will appear as a tab in the Hangouts app, but you will need to have the Hangouts Dialer installed, because without it the tab won't be there. The app itself just functions as a shortcut to the Hangouts app. All a bit strange.

    I love the functionality of this, but find it slightly odd. It seems like the Dialer app is a bit redundant, like its an external update to Hangouts. That said, I'll still be using it. Obviously.

    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

    This dialer is not responding very frequently. Many times I reported regarding this issue to support with system logs but so far no improvement.

    Very bare bones. Lacks a lot of the features of Google voice but is unfortunately the only thing available in Canada. I really would like the voice mail and the ability to link this to my Google home so I could make hands free calls with it.

    Great app, use it all the time. This allows me to make calls over wifi and data eliminating the need for minutes. I do wish the ringtone selection for contacts would work. It just uses the one I have set for every call despite my changing it for the specific person. Otherwise it's great!
