Hangouts/hangouts cannot call (the Hangout dial button is greyed out)

In the last few days (starting the month of August?) several friends discovered that when they transferred their Google account to a Google Voice number the Hangouts app is no longer able make calls!

1. Problem description

A blogger took a peek. The brand new Google Account that had been migrated into Google Voice logged into Hangouts but the dialer was not a feature. The issue was the Hangouts software for Android devices didn’t have an option to dial even if the dialer was running, as did the dial buttons in Hangouts software were not present on Apple devices. It’s gray!

  • (Important) Important Update: 2020-10-22nd, Google is slated to disable the Hangout calling feature on all Google accounts by the beginning of 2021. This means that you will only be able to make use of the Voice application.
  • (Important) (Important) Update: 2020-10-25: In case you wish to keep using Hangouts the phone feature open the settings on Google Voice’s Google Voice official website and enable Hangouts calling by selecting the option to call. However, the blogger here suggests changing to Google’s Voice app whenever you can!
  • I’m not sure if this is an issue or a limitation that was imposed by Google (for Hangouts or Google Voice). I’d only recommend using the Google Voice App.

2. Troubleshooting

Three, the ultimate conclusion

The current restriction of Hangouts functionality is an temporary strategy used by Google to eliminate Hangouts products. Friends should not be worried. If you’d like to use Hangouts for the rest of your life start by opening the settings on Google Voice on Google Voice official website and enable Hangouts’s calling under the option to call. Turn it on. To reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases after a while It is suggested that you switch over to Google Voice app as soon as you can!
