How to use Google Hangouts Dialer to make free Wi-Fi calls without a SIM card

Imagine a Wi-Fi tablet that does not accept SIM cards but still needs to call. It doesn't really seem like an efficient solution to buy a new computer to say hello to your grandmother. It's 2016, after all, so it must be a better way, okay? There is. There is. You can make free Wi-Fi calls to Canada and the U.S. within minutes with Hangouts Dialer from Google.

Note: If you intend to use your smartphone without a SIM card, you would need a constant Wi-Fi connection, so you're better able to spend the most time where wireless Internet is accessible. We tested the approach without a SIM card on this phone and did a really good job.

This has all been possible since 2014 when Google revealed that it could incorporate Google Voice better with Google Hangouts. So you have to have version 2.3 or higher of Hangouts. Don't worry if you're not sure. Step by step we will show you how to install the latest Play Store update.

How to make Wi-Fi calls using Google Hangouts dialers

  1. You can boost your wifi connectivity with these devices if necessary, ensure you have a secure wifi connection.
  2. Download the Hangouts app and Hangouts Dialer app as the first thing you need to do. To do this, just follow the links or find the apps in the Play Store. Then, click the green Download button and the instructions are followed.
  3. Hangouts Dialer app starts once installed. This can be done directly through your home screen, app drawer or the Hangouts app. You'll be asked to sign in using your Gmail address, which you probably have, as you start using an Android device.
  4. It is then time to open the keyboard by pressing the nine-point green circle in the center to dial any Canadian or American telephone number you want to call. You should feel at home on the call pad, very close to the device you use to make regular phone calls.

Google Hangouts isn't the only app that allows you to chat without a SIM card to your friends and family. Many common solutions include, among many other items, WhatsApp, Google Duo, GrooVe IP, Skype and Line.
