Google Hangouts, messaging apps, chat applications

It looks like some users are getting Google Voice integration with Google Hangouts, though it seems to be a limited rollout a the moment. The integration, which has been long rumored and awaited, will provide users with a means to make and receive calls over Hangouts using their Google Voice numbers.

For those of us such as myself who have been using Voice since before Google bought and rebranded GrandCentral, it’s definitely welcome news.

The service and some features are not fully rolled out yet

As mentioned though, only some users have confirmed Google Voice integration is active in Hangouts, while others have reported that hey haven’t received it yet (let us know in the comments below either way. Some users are also not getting all of the functionality as well, so we may have to have some patience as the update continues to roll out.

Hangouts with Voice is another alternative in a growing calling and messaing market, and will likely be most welcomed by Google and Android fans.
