    Google Voice receive and place voice calls?

    I must be missing something. I am very confused on how to receive a voice call or place one through Windows 7. (When I am at home with cable modem connection.) Can it be done, without somehow involving a cellphone? I have a headset mic.

    Oh, and I want to call a cellphone (or be called). Even better if I can also call landlines. Do I need to give up and use Skype? I wanted it to show my GV number.

    The web interface of Google Voice it has the "Call" button but it lets me choose from Google Hangouts or Google Talk... doesn't Hangouts only do voicemail and texts? Google Talk isn't worth trying since it's being replaced by Hangouts?

    Install Chrome and install the Google Hangouts plug in. Make and receive calls directly in Hangouts. Calls to your Google Voice number always ring in Hangouts (unless you set "do not disturb")
    You only use the old Google Voice page to control call forwarding to other phones and to see your call history really. Functionality is still in transition which does make it confusing.

    I've been using Hangouts (app version from last year) on iPhone with my GV Numbers. I can make calls pretty fine over WiFi from outside the US. Tried a bit on 3G as well..

    I want to be able to receive the calls as well.. atleast a notification ring on my iPhone.. Is it possible for newer versions of the App?

    I don't have iOS so I can't answer that for sure, but I thought you could
