    How to send a text message on google hangouts/voice?

    I use google hangouts/voice on my iphone app to make calls to people in the US. Im out of the US at the moment. When i send a text message do i just click the


    +


    Then on the enter name, phone or email, i type the us cell number with the area code? But when i do this, do i just type the 10 digit number? Or do i need to put a Plus or 1? Im trying to send a text message to someone that isn't on my contact list on my iphone. Thanks.

    The SMS will send either way.

    Hi there. When i put the 10 numbers without anything... it didn't send at all.

    But when i put down +1 xxx xxx xxx , it is shown as sent.

    So that means it got sent right? Because the person who i sent text to did not respond back yet so not sure if it worked or not.

    Send yourself a test message to your GV number and your mobile phone number. If you receive the test message both ways, you know it's working.

    The Hangouts app for Android works fine for calls or messages using 10-digit phone #s for me. It works the same while I am in either the US or Canada using a US T-Mobile data only SIM card.

    However, if you have a non-US SIM card in your phone, you definitely have to add the +1 to place a call using Hangouts.

    So, pauly02, can you answer my question?

    Exactly what SIM card do you have in your phone?

    Also, did you ever confirm that you can receive texts to your GV # using Hangouts?

    I have a mexican cell number on my iphone.


    I have received many texts to my GV number via hangouts from people in the US.

    I use hangouts AND the google voice app but for some reason ONLY texts can be sent and received on hangouts and ALL incoming calls ‘go’ or show up in the google voice app (iOS) is there a way to use BOTH or set up both for incoming/outgoing calls/texts?? Thanks.

    Make sure your Hangouts app is set to receive incoming calls - that setting is default off on Android Hangouts.

    For texts you can set up to use either app, but not both at the same time.

    Thanks but is there a way to set up both apps for all calls and text messages? I use iPhones more so than androids even though I carry around both at any given time. But if I remember correctly oh the iOS app for both you seem to have to choose one or the other for text messages. But is there no way on iOS or android to use both apps fully at the same time?

    Yes..... Hangouts requires mobile data or WiFi for calls. Google Voice app uses the native phone dialer to place calls using the mobile voice network. At least that's the way it works on my Androids.

    Hi there. Im trying to send a text to a number that i never sent a text before. Can someone tell me how do it do this on google hangouts on iphone? I click on text and then plus sign.


    It says enter name, phone or email.


    so how do i enter the 10 digit number. When i enter say 1203xxxxxxx... it shows up as 044 203 xxx xxxx.


    Isn't that incorrect? It should show 1 203 xxx xxxx right? Like when i text other numbers in hangouts, it shows the regular us number.
