    How to txt international with Hangouts?

    I have a friend who went overseas for vacation.
    he got a sim for that country.
    I tried to txt him with '+<country code> <phone #>' but Hangouts puts a 1 in front.

    how do I get rid of that 1?
    or am I doing it right? (he hasn't responded yet)

    edit:
    I was doing it wrong.
    after correcting, my phone says Hangouts/google voice doesn't send sms outside of US

    You can make international calls but there is no international text option with Google Voice/Hangouts. I use an application like LocalPhone to do that. It costs more than the call charges though!

    I am curious if the person you are texting can send free texts to a # in the US.

    If not, have you considered some free texting app that you could both install?
