How do I make phone calls with Google Hangouts?

Why pay for domestic calling when you can make Wi-Fi calls to Canada and the U.S. for free with Google Hangouts? All you need is the Hangouts Dialer and you’ll be able to dial any number and make a call via Wi-Fi, 3G, or 4G (data rates apply, of course).

You can call internationally, but you will be charged Google’s rates. That being said, Google’s international rates are considerably cheaper than many leading telephone service providers’ rates.

Here’s how to make Wi-Fi phone calls using the Hangouts Dialer and Google Hangouts for Android!

How to find and download Hangouts Dialer in the Google Play Store for Android

Launch the Google Play Store from your home screen or the app drawer.
Tap the search bar at the top of your screen.
Type Hangouts Dialer into the field.

Tap the search button on the bottom right of your screen. Depending on your keyboard, it probably looks like a magnifying glass.
