Google Voice now lets you call people using Hangouts

Google Voice is now providing the option to make calls with Hangouts. Alex Wiesen divulged the update through the company’s social networking platform, noting that the new functionality does not require a G+ account and works “even if you aren’t using Hangouts in Gmail.” The feature can be accessed by selecting Hangouts from a drop-down menu labeled “Phone to call with.” The website will then launch a separate Hangouts window, allowing conversation to take place as normal.

Hangouts is seen as Google”s solution to its fractured messaging systems, and even offers the ability to place phone calls. But while the new platform has been heralded as “the future of Google Voice,” little has been done to merge the two services. Nonetheless, the…

Can Google dominate live video with Hangouts on Air?

Today, Google is announcing a big stack of features for Hangouts on Air, a grab bag of upgrades and improvements that theoretically add up to more than the sum of their parts. Hangouts on Air, which allows individuals and small groups of people to broadcast live from their laptops or phones, has becoming a surprisingly powerful tool not just for its users, but for Google’s own image. High-profile live Hangouts with President Obama, astronauts, and Miley Cyrus have helped push the service into the spotlight and ostensibly garnered goodwill for not just Hangouts, but also Google+.

To build on that momentum, Google is updating Hangouts on Air with better production and video features for live shows, a new interface and extension platform,…

Google updates Hangouts with more emoji and a touch of Project Butter

DNP Google updates Hangouts with more emoji and a touch of Project Butter

When Google debuted Hangouts at I/O, it looked like a pretty nifty idea, but since then, the app has been plagued with its share of performance issues. A new update, available today in the Google Play store, aims to rectify that by adding a hint of Project Butter to the Hangouts mix. Google is smearing Butter on the app (like a wayward child with his head stuck in the banisters) in the hopes that it’ll smooth out the kinks and speed up performance. Also included in the update is a brand new set of emoji, so you can continue to abandon the written word in favor of cutesy hieroglyphics. We jest, of course. Who doesn’t love some good emoji? To get the upgrade, head on over to the source link below.
