There were murmurs all around about this, and Google finally delivered what was expected of it with an official blogpost and a new update to the Hangouts app. Yes, we are talking about the long-rumoured Google Voice integration in the Hangouts app for Android. Well, Google seems to have one-upped themselves this time though, with added functionality for Voice calling to anywhere in the US and Canada at no cost.
The Hangouts app gets bumped to version 2.3 now and gets a new dialer app too for the added functionality. Although we’d expect the Hangouts app to see an update soon enough for including the dialer into one single download; for now both have to be downloaded separately from the Play Store. Also, the dialer app only works with Hangouts if you have the above mentioned version of Hangouts installed.
Coming back to the Voice Calling functionality; Google, in its official blog post has stated that while voice calls to the US and Canada are currently free, other international calls too are also offered at quite low rates and are listed here. So if you are excited for some Hangout-love from Google, stay hooked as the update is getting rolled out in stages for different users OR you can just go ahead and grab the Hangouts Dialer APK right away from the download link below.
