From the Google Voice Blog: posts/DG6h32BWaQW 1) Today's version of Hangouts doesn't yet support outbound calls on the web and in the Chrome extension, but we do support inbound calls to your Google Voice number. We're working hard on supporting both, and outbound/inbound calls will soon be available. In the meantime, you can continue using Google Talk in Gmail. 2) Hangouts is designed to be the future of Google Voice, and making/receiving phone calls is just the beginning.
