Make Phone Calls from Inside Google+ Hangouts
#googleplusupdate #hangouts

Starting today, you can now call a phone number from any Google+ hangout, announces +Vincent Paquet. This feature, originally launched in Hangouts with Extras, joins screensharing and Google Docs integration as graduates. Calls to the US and Canada are free, and international calling rates very low.

Graduating another extra: making phone calls from inside Hangouts

In the past few months, we’ve graduated two widely-used features from Hangouts with extras to the main Hangouts experience: screensharing and Google Docs. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re graduating a third and very popular feature -- the ability to call a phone number from Hangouts. Calls to the US and Canada are free, and international calling rates are super, super low (www.goo.gl/TWv2L)

To dial in someone:
- When you’re in a hangout, click on the “Invite” button and then on the “+telephone” link.
- Enter the number you want to dial, and hit “Add.” (Note: You can only call one number at a time. Dialing a second phone number will replace the existing call.)

As always, let us know what you think in the comments, or via the “Send feedback” button!
