Can you please elaborate on "took over my Google Voice" exactly?  Are you GV on Android? Gmail?

Google voice phone gadget in gmail on windows laptop, broken by new hangouts gadget: Bought all this google voice credit to be able to make phone calls from gmail from laptop using the gmail chat gadget that had the “call phone” button, but now gmail phone call gadget is gone, replaced by hangouts and there is no “call phone” button. How do I make phone calls now from laptop ?

Is there a way to keep Google talk as a legacy system while this monstrosity of Google hangout comes about? Google Voice is a great service and should remain as a standalone service with integrated outbound calling. Right now without Google talk, or even with a beta version, the ability to make outbound calls has been removed WITHOUT ANY PRIOR WARNING.

I know many small business owners, including myself, that depended on this service for both inbound and outbound calls and international calls. I've invested money into purchasing various google voice numbers for this purpose, now they are all completely useless...


Is there any solution to solve this problem?

Until inbound/outbound calling is integrated with hangouts https://plus.google.com/106636280351174936240/posts/DG6h32BWaQW

Enable Hangouts in Gmail

  1. Click your profile photo at the top of your Chat list.

Well then we should never ask for enhancements right? "That was never the design" blah, blah, blah. This type of answer seems to reject innovation.
