    My GV build version 2018.50.224208644 (196874). Is it the recent build? I did see option to update/upgrade.

    Thanks for your guidance.

    There was an app update in early January to 2019.03.227873883. Just updating the app does not enable Wifi calling. G has to enable it on the account from their end. It has been reported that they intend to do that for everyone next week.

    I am looking forward to it. I despise the Hangouts app.

    Thanks. I did not see option to activate update under settings or under vertical 3 dots.

    Is there a way to get this 2019/latest update to Android?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Are you familiar with the Android Play Store?

    @jmsilver99:

    I've experienced the call cutoff (maybe within the last two years), but I can't say if it was at two hours or possibly three! Rarely have calls that long.

    I've also had the experience (since I do have the app enabled to record calls by pressing 4) that after a certain amount of time on the call (maybe around the one hour mark), I'll hear the GV lady prompt break in and announce that the call was being recorded. I can quickly press 4 and stop it. After, there will be a sound file waiting in the Voicemail list of the duration of that recording. Weird. Has happened more than once, but not often enough to be intrusive or annoying.

    Touch the Play app icon.

    Enter Google Voice in the search box at the top.

    When it finds the GV app, touch Install or Update.

    Any other apps you want are installed the same way.

    There is another way to get just updates, but the above is the basics.

    In my GV app if I go to the 'about' page in the settings,
    when I am leaving the 'about' page, or even when I originally enter into settings, I see, for only a split second, 'Hangouts' written in the settings, similar to how calls and messages are written, but it says hangouts.

    I may not have been paying attention to this in the past, but if this is new, then it may be indicative of the hangouts voip feature integration.

    I looked again, and now not only does the hangouts tab show for only the smallest of moments, but the 'Make calls' in the calls section show up.

    Has anyone else seen this?
    And what do you think it means?

    I only just installed the GV app on Friday to test it with a new GV # before I switch from using Hangouts with my primary GV #s on my mobile devices.

    I did NOT notice this on Friday or Saturday as I was checking the GV app out.

    This morning, I DO notice that "Hangouts" flashes momentarily as you describe.

    Do you have the beta VoIP functionality in your GV app yet? I don't yet.

    Thanks,

    What is the version # showed up for WiFi enabled GV?

    Will all having GV account get this WiFi enabled GV?

    I did see GV forum link posted in this thread, does not provide way to ask question with GV team .

    What is the mechanism to communicate with them?

    Thanks for sharing .

    I think that I registered for the beta, but it may have been with a different email address that I used to download the gv app from the play store.

    Funny how you can log in with one gmail account to download the app and then in the app itself sign in with multiple gmail accounts, similar to what we have with the gmail app.

    So I do not know if I should be with beta or not.

    But I have been noticing the flashing options recently.

    I am hoping that by the end of the week the wifi calling should be enabled.

    You have been involved in threads that have talked about the recent announcement that VoIP will be available in the GV app for everyone by the end of next week. All you can do is wait, and/or use Hangouts, which still works perfectly well, until GV app VoIP is enabled in your account!

    There isn't a special version. Just have a recent version, since mid 2018, but no reason to not have the current version.

    The current version was released Jan 4.

    Yes, I occasionally wind up on hold for well over an hour, and then my talk time is limited by the 2 hour limit. Happily, although the hold time is long, the talk time generally can be quick, on those calls. And happily, I can sit at my desk and work on the computer while waiting on hold. You can notice that it is exactly two hours by looking at the GV call long after it gets cut off.
