However, the voice calling on the Android phone can't be possible with just the Hangouts app. Thus, in order to place a Hangouts call from an Android device, you need to be sure you have the Hangouts dialer app installed as well.

What can be tempting for many users is the fact that Google is offering one minute free voice call to any 24 countries for the users in India. Calls that are eligible for the free minute will display "first minute free" on the call screen.
