    Hi guys

    I downloaded Google Hangouts on my iPhone to replace imessage as my default messaging app, but I can't link it to my phone number, even after it asked for my google account.

    How do I link Google Hangouts to my phone number?

    Welcome to Android Central! Google is slowly phasing out Hangouts, so that might be part of the problem. Or are you using the G Suite version?

    To my knowledge - the only way to link Hangouts to a phone number (I assume for texting?) was to have either Google Fi for your cell provider (and then only if you also had a Pixel device I think) or when using Google Voice for a phone number.

    if you are talking about forwarding your calls, messages and such from google voice number then go to google voice, click on settings, click on account then add your phone.

    I don't have Google Voice or Fi, and I can still make calls through Hangouts Dialer using my cell number. Try opening Hangouts, then tap the menu button at the upper left, then Settings, then tap your account. Scroll down to Outbound Caller ID, and see if your number is listed there.
