Very useful app, especially for SMS and calls in North America. I hope it will stay this way for a long time and will extend the list of countries, where you can dial the US numbers. I had some issues setting it up on my Samsung Galaxy S2 that runs Android 6. I had to go manually into Settings and install permission to use microphone for Hangouts app (not the Dialer). But now everything works fine.
Not an actual dialer. It won't make calls from other apps (ex. clicking a link or initiating a call through Google Now). Definitely not a limitation of the operating system and the level of control third party apps have over system functions - Skype can do it, why can't Hangouts (an app that is actually made by the same people who made the OS)? That's a deal breaker for me since I use Google Now for pretty much everything.
Nice - edit DOES NOT MUTE MEDIA AUDIO FOR PHONE CALLS. Needs to behave more like a phone not an app ·Sound quality is good on Wi-fi and 4G. Keypad is too small for my big fingers or one-handed operation. ·I accidentally dial from the recent calls all the time. ·It needs inbound unknown caller ID, i.e. Truecaller/White pages compatible.
I cannot recommend this app enough. It's basically hangouts, but the shortcut just takes you to the call page. However, I love that I can use all my Google communication services in one app. Yes, it's not as intuitive as other SMS apps like Textra, QKSMS, or even Google messenger. As with anything in life, it takes time to get used to it and recognize all the features. I like having one app that does everything that I need and because I have a Google account everything integrates seamlessly with no hassle. People may disagree strongly about what I think of this app however, as someone who uses Google products extensively every day, I could not be happier. Please keep making this app better, and I will continue to support it.
Great app, but audio quality needs improvement. This is an awsome app! It's cool to be able to call any Canada and US number free of charge over WiFi. No need to worry about using your cellular data or minutes. Also, as a totally blind user, I am happy to see that Hangouts Dialer is accessible with the TalkBack screenreader. However, I have some issues with the audio quality. There is a significant delay, and although I hear the person I'm calling, they have trouble hearing me. Please fix this in the next release!!!
Double charge without calling I tried to call to my home number. Tariff was 0.15c. I was standing next to my landline phone and it never rang. The time started counting in the app even before it started ringing (in the app only, I never received a call on my home phone). I decided to disconnect the call at 57th second, but I got charged for 2 minutes talk (0.30c). Google call history now shows that I used the service for two minutes. Is this a good service? Is this fair?
