Google updates Hangouts for iOS with free in-app voice calling facility for US and Canada with an additional feature of receiving calls via Google Voice. This is enough to fill the hearts of Google Hangouts users with glee.

Google+ Hangouts app for iOS receives an overhauling this Friday that will leave it all the richer. Now Google+ Hangouts users can call free with thier iOS app to US and Canadain users. It will work in synch with iOS devices to receive incoming calls from Google Voice Calls too. Apple’s mobile setup will be featuring the new application. The user base may buzz automatically from the app to the United States and Canada free of cost. Calls to other nations will be charged a certain fee of course. 

All you really need is a Google Voice Account. You can call someone or have them call you. The former will display your GV number while the latter will show up in the Hangouts application. Furthermore, there is an additional benefit in the form of the calls not interrupting the music playing on the user’s device. On the contrary, they only make it pause for a while. 

While earlier calling facility was introduced on the platform known as Google Hangouts, now an iOS update has appeared on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It is hoped that the selfsame service will come to Android too. But it is too early to be making such predictions and prognostications. 

The future is too complex to talk about since too many variables get in the way. Whatever the case, this latest revamping of the Google Hangouts platform has really raised the volume for Google. The Big G never fails to surprise its fans every time it comes up with something new.
