The service currently is for Android users only.
Known Issues
Obihai devices won't work if you enable calling over Wi-Fi (e.g. Incoming calls won't ring your Obihai phone if you turn on calling over Wi-Fi and mobile data)

Obihai issues in process of resolution for supported devices, 2xx series seems first in line for update already rolling out by April 30th. Apparently other supported (not 1xx) devices to follow.

Anyone know if 1xx third party NAF software plans to keep up with the latest changes??

The rumor is that android users that get on this beta will be able to receive calls on Google Voice by itself rather than installing GV, Hangouts, and Hangouts Dialer.

What about those chat apps from Google that can't make phone calls nor send text messages? Those are still useless.

Is this supposed to replace Hangouts dialer? Is it better in any way?

The app interface and calling quality both are getting better according to my one-week usage.

I hope so... My Hangouts audio quality was always lacking

old google voice calling is call-back based.

That one required cellular service, this wouldn't need it
