So I remember T-Mobile rolled out WiFi calling. I downloaded Google hangouts dialer and tried the calling feature.
First I connected through WiFi and ran the app and made a call to a ATT cell phone. And it worked. So then I turned off WiFi and turned on mobile data. Made another call to same ATT cell phone and boom! N7 T-Mobile walking talking phone.

I'm stock rooted, google hangouts dialer. I don't know if this works on ATT or Verizon because I stunt have a Sim. My call went over 'H'. I have no LTE connection in my room.

Anyone else want to confirm. But sweet

It should work regardless of carrier as long as you have access to the Internet.

I thought it wasn't supposed to, because Google locked it down. You couldn't do this before. I don't believe this worked until volte started to roll out. And with Google integrating this into hangouts

It started working when the dialer came out. Doesn't have anything to do with the rollout of volte on some carriers.

The dialer included with hangouts is just a way to connect to gvoice with voip, which has been possible for years with 3rd party clients such as Grooveip
All it does is simplify the process of setting up, the concept is the same.

Literally any device that can connect to the internet can do hangout calls in the same manner, as there's no carriers involved at all. As far as they're concerned it's merely data.

What they did do was disable the method some clients, such as grooveip, used to connect to gvoice.
But there are multiple methods, existing solutions such as obitalk can still connect to gvoice via voip.

Yes as long as you've integrated hangouts with Google voice.
