Hangouts Dialer - Call Phones
by: Google Inc. • 120.6K
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.
