Google+ Hangouts Now Offers Free Voice Calls To The US and Canada

Google staff and inventor of Internet Relay Chat (The first Instant Messaging service on the internet), Jarkko Oikarinen announced on Thursday via his Google+ page, that phone calls can now be made within a Google+ account. Hangout is Google+’s multiple video chat feature.

This means Google+ users can bring non-Google+ users into conversations and hopefully lure them into using the service. Oikarinen said “We are constantly listening to feedback so that we can make Hangouts even better for Google+ users, and we’re excited by the really cool ways people are using the product,”.

The feature is currently free for United States and Canada residents. To add a call to a hangout, click “Invite” at the top of the Hangout’s Extras window, select the “Phone” tab on the left, enter the number and click “Call Now”.
