    Ran Out of Minutes

    So, I was chatting away when I lost my connection. Realized I was out of minutes. So, I went into Gmail and called thru my computer. I thought that I needed Google Voice to do this. On the Gmail page it says Hangouts. No one can call me (which is a good thing), but I can call out . Phone number shows up as 'Restricted' on other person's phone. All's right with the world.

    Before the current (Google) Voice app, the Hangouts Dialer was used on a phone to make WiFi calls using your Google Voice number.

    Although I've never tried it this way, I've been told that Hangouts doesn't even need a GV # attached to make outgoing calls to real phone #s.

    Just tried calling my house phone from a Hangouts account that has no GV number associated with it. Call went through and was announced as "Call from private caller".

    Good way to save on minutes. Don't know what will happen when Hangouts goes away next year.

    This ability will most likely go away. I saw it speculated somewhere that this is the REASON Hangouts is being decommissioned, but that was just somebody's guess.
