Google+ Hangouts has added a new feature which will allow the users to make calls from Google+ Hangouts. The addition of this feature is expected to make Google+ more popular service which is known for its free video conferencing option in the web. The only drawback in the latest feature includes the inability to create any party line which means that the users will be able to make only one call at a time. The feature has been named Google Voice.
It is the third feature that Google+ Hangouts is adding after Screen-sharing as well as Google Docs. The company stated that the calls from US as well as Canada are provided for free. The company has also announced that the international calling rates will be very low than the users actually expect it to be.
Once the user is in a Hangout, they will be able to see the ‘Invite’ button
If the user wants to dial someone, then they will have to click on the ‘Invite’ button
After that, the users will have to click on the link that denotes ‘+telephone’
Now the users will have to enter the number that they wish to dial
After typing the number, users will then have to click on the ‘Add’ button
It has to be noted that the users can only call one person at a time, and dialling of a second number will result in the replacement of the existing call
Google has not yet revealed the technology that has been used for this feature. The effort by Google in providing more user-satisfaction with the announcement of the Google Voice feature deserves appreciation.
The new feature also has a wide range of influence for businesses as well as brands. The feature is expected to become more useful for the employees that are spread around different locations. The feature even comes with a social aspect which helps the users as well as their Hangouts to ask a friend a question.
Google with its new Google Voice feature is expecting to make communication flawless as well as ever-present. By means of providing a platform where the connecting devices as well as communication platforms are allowed to talk each other, Google has proved its worth in the communication industry again by means of following the principles of curation.
This is how users can make calls from within Google+ Hangouts.
