You can now make Google Voice calls through Hangouts — but only from the Google Voice site

Calls from Google Voice through Hangouts

The merging of Google Voice and Hangouts isn't exactly what we'd call a fast-mover, but we're again seeing some progress. Google's Alex Wiesen last night mentioned that you can now make a call with Google Voice through Hangouts — but so far only from the Google Voice site. And, sure enough, you can.

It's as simple as going to Google.com/voice, typing in the number you want to call, then changing the "Phone to call with" box to "Hangouts." Missing still is support for the Chrome Widget, but we'd probably expect that to die off anyway at some point. And it's not out of left-field to expect this option to show up in the proper Hangouts extension in the future.

Now can we talk about a proper native Hangouts desktop app, perhaps?

HTC offloads its clock app to Google Play, is finally available

HTC Clock app

HTC recently added its Clock to the list of apps it's moved into Google Play, and it looks like it's finally available for updating. (It had been floating around in Google Play for a few days but wasn't actually able to be updated for most folks.) Not sure if that's an offshoot of the Android 4.4.3 update the HTC One M8 is receiving, but the app quickly jumped from 5 to 10 downloads to the 5,000 to 1,000 range.

Snag it at the link above. And also be on the lookout for a HTC Service Pack update in Google Play as well.
