Google’s Hangouts Dialer app is one step closer to completely replacing the old “Phone” app on your, eh, phone today. Thanks to an update that’s available now, the Hangouts Dialer app can now open all phone number links accessed on your phone.
For those who rely heavily on Hangouts to place phone calls, this comes as welcome news. Previously users would have to do something like copy and paste any numbers that came up in somewhere like Google Search or Maps because simply activating the links as intended would always open the numbers in the default phone app. Now Android will recognize the Hangouts Dialer as a phone app and allow you to set the app as the default method for placing calls.
To snag the update, make sure to hit up the “My Apps” section on your device of choice today.
