Confirm your phone number with Hangouts on Android devices
Confirming your phone’s number with Hangouts helps people who have your phone number find you on Google services, like Hangouts and caller ID by Google, and connect with you. This is really helpful if you don’t have a Google+ profile, or your friend doesn’t remember your email address.
Keep in mind, only people who already have your phone number will be able to see your number and that you're a Hangouts user.
The first time you use Hangouts, you’ll be asked to confirm your number:
- If the number listed in the confirmation dialog matches your phone's number, touch Confirm.
- If the number listed in the confirmation dialog does not match your phone's number, touch Edit Number. Type your phone's actual number, and then touch Confirm.
If you have more than one Google account, you'll be asked to select an account to link your phone number with.
If you have a Google Voice number linked with your Google account, it'll be confirmed along with your phone’s number.
