I have always liked using Google Hangouts on my Android smartphone. That’s why I couldn’t hide my happiness when I came to know that Hangouts has been updated to allow free voice and video calling. Though free calls using Wi-Fi or mobile data may no longer be as sought after as it once was, it’s good to see it in Hangouts as well.
Hangouts Dialer lets you make free internet calls across the U.S. and Canada. Besides, it allows you to make the cheapest calls across the world as well. You can check out Hangout’s international calling rates for more information.
