    Looking to pick up the Note 9 in a few weeks and wondering if people are using Hangouts and/or G Voice on the phone, without any problems.
    Tried using G Voice on my Note 5 but had issues so went back to just Hangouts. That still gives me problems calling out every once in a while though.

    Have you considered trying WhatsApp. I'm not sure if it's any better but it's worth a try. The main problem I've had with voice calls on all the platforms is latency.

    I'm still using Hangouts and Hangouts Dialer on my Note 9 for my GVoice line, no issues at all. I do so out of habit because the GVoice app was dismal before, but I've heard it's improved... I've even used it on both WiFi and mobile data in China (granted, on a T-Mo SIM, so it kinda bypasses the China 'firewall' somehow and does allow me to use Google sites/services there while on mobile...anyway, I digress...it worked even on mobile abroad).

    That is great...if your contact has Whatsapp. The 'beauty' of a GVoice line is that you have that... a line. So you're calling a phone and they see a phone number show up on the call, yet you can use it over data on any device. Downside is you can only do that to US/Canada numbers, though... and for some reason? Puerto Rico numbers don't work with GVoice. Go figure...

    I use Whatsapp and Viber for local and international calls all the time. They work great.

    I have a separate GVoice number I use for business so I want it to show up on the other person's phone, when calling.

    I do that. GV works seamlessly for calls, texts and voicemail.

    So it seems both options work well, just pick the one you like the most then!

    And now you can use the GV app to place calls over Wi-Fi, too!
