Receive calls to your Google Voice number in Hangouts

If you are a Google Voice user, you can receive calls to your Google Voice number right in Hangouts in Gmail, Google+, and the Hangouts Chrome app. Note that Google Voice is currently only available in the US.  To sign up for Google Voice, visit http://www.google.com/voice.

To receive calls to your Google Voice number, you don't even need to enable a setting! Calls to your Google Voice number will ring in Hangouts in Gmail, Google+, and the Hangouts Chrome app if you have a Google Voice number associated with your account.  When you receive a call you can:

  • Accept the call: If you accept, a Hangout window will open and you can talk to the person calling you.
  • Ignore the call: If you ignore, the call request goes away. The person will not be notified that you ignored the call.

If you do not want to have calls to your Google Voice number ring you in Hangouts, please follow these steps:

  1. Revert to the old Chat in Gmail
  2. Sign out of Hangouts
You cannot place or receive emergency service calls using Call Phones in Hangouts or Call Phones in Gmail.
