Hangouts calls on iPhones now appear as regular voice calls


It took a while, but Google Hangouts has finally followed in Facebook Messenger’s footsteps and started taking advantage of iOS 10’s Callkit. That means calls you receive on Hangouts will appear as regular voice calls on your iPhones’ lock screen — but only if you want them to. Callkit gives VoIP services the ability to use Apple’s stock Phone app, so you can ring people through Hangouts from within the stock app itself. If you’re the recipient, the only indication that it’s a VoIP call is a small mark underneath the contact’s name telling you that it’s using Hangouts audio. That way, you won’t wander to an area without coverage by mistake while talking on the phone.
