    I managed to install Google Phone 2.5.11_rc8 from Google Play before they realised they shouldn't have made it generally available and withdrew it.
    It works brilliantly and it's finally great to have Blocked Numbers and Google ID at last!
    Looks like Google Play have deleted the Google Phone app again with version Google Phone 2.5.12_rc9 not installing on my Style and being restricted to Nexus devices again.

    However it is still available from APKMirror and you should be able to sideload it on stock phone.

    I installed it. But it would only ring on incoming calls, and not light the screen up with incoming caller ID. It would also lock up sometimes. Had to go back to stock dialer.

    Make sure you go to settings/apps/Google dialer/permissions and enable everything.

    Then go to settings/apps/gear icon (upper right)/default apps and select the Google dialer for the default phone. At that point I disable the AOSP dialer and reboot for good measure.

    Yes, all of the above. It's also called "Telephone" in the Apps menu on my Style.

    Does anyone know if this will work on the Turbo 2?

    I think it should. The difference between the 2 phones is mostly hardware unrelated to the phone/dialler.

    Is there any way to get it to show the voicemail tab, like in the stock AOSP dialer?

    Edit: nevermind. This works once the app is made to be the default phone app.

    Version 3.01.08_rc8 also appears to work. This is from Android N Preview 3.

    Can't see anything different, looks and works the same as 2.5.11_rc8.

    Does the Google search from within the dialer app work for anyone?

    Edit: works now.

    Turns out it does work. Same as on the Moto X.

    I made it the default. But I don't have a voicemail tab on mine. I installed both versions. Neither has the VM tab.

    Activate Visual Voicemail through settings>calls>voicemail. Also, has to be offered by your provider, as far as I know.

    It had visual voicemail in the stock dialer. But no tab for it in the Google dialer.

    I compared my moto X to my wife's Nexus. She has in Voicemail a tab I don't have which is the visual voicemail tab. I will try to remove sim and reinsert and see if it shows up.

    It's under Settings/Calls/VoiceMail and at the bottom a toggle for 'Visual Voicemail'.
