Google Voice expected to merge into Hangouts this summer

Following trend with Google moving towards one single app that incorporates the functionality of all their social and communication services, it seems Google Voice is to be absorbed into the Hangouts app this summer.

Once the transfer of Google Voice into Hangouts is complete, you’ll be able to make VoIP calls directly from your Google phone number in the mobile app, just like on the web.

Google has already made its Hangout app take over the function of system-wide SMS handling, and come this summer it seems it’ll be able to handle all VoIP communication too.
