Great idea. UI needs improvement. I very much enjoy Hangouts and Google Voice, and can understand that every once in a while a call won't be connected. However, I am quite surprised of the low level UI and the limited settings options. I recommend the dev team looks into some dialer apps that integrate also messaging (i.e. Contacts +) for an idea of how a proper UI should function.
Could be better The call quality is pretty solid. Using this on a phone without a sim with my Google Voice number. Main problem is that tha app doesn't import all phone contacts--although if you search for the name it will find the contact anyway. Why does this only import some contacts? Otherwise pretty good if you run out of minutes, neglect to pay your phone bill, want a back-up for your paid service or are fine making calls only on WiFi.
Echo finally gone I'm not sure if it's the Android 6 update or the last couple updates for dialer but the echo that I've been dealing with on receiver end for the last 8 months finally stopped. No more complaints from people I call from my Google number about being unable to understand me due to such a bad echo they were getting. I'm happy that I can finally make all my calls from my Google Voice number and make this app my default dialer. My only grip now is the hassle of having this app being separate from Hangouts.
Hangout Teams needs to wake up or drink more coffee to work on this project. I think there is major problems comparing to Google Voice need to correct a.s.a.p: 1. Can Not ADD New Contacts from "RECENT CALLS" list 2. Have NO option to Send SMS from "RECENT CALLS" list. The only option users have is CALL or DIAL 3. Can Not search Existing text messages easy like Google Voice. Why NOT JUST COPY THOSE FUNCTIONS FROM GOOGLE VOICE TO HAVE UNIVERSAL PLATFORM?
Doesn't work on galaxy tablet My boyfriend and I use this to sleep with each other even when we're apart. It's wonderful. But when he bought me this Samsung galaxy it won't work to call him. It only works if he calls me. It would be nice to watch movies together on my laptop. Any help or advice to fix this?
Barely usable Doesn't perform T9 contacts search and doesn't rotate with phone, so next to impossible to use with broken screen (top half doesn't register touches). And typing part of a # doesn't work unless it's from the beginning. Not given as an option for placing calls when selecting a number in another app. Also, incoming calls ring on computer with no way to answer on the phone. And finally, call quality, while great at first, often goes sharply downhill after a while on a call.
