Just realized that Google Hangout on the Android phone no longer has a dialer!  Is it gone for good?

They want you to use Google Voice now.

Hangouts integration with Google Voice was discontinued on April 1. Google announced this pending change last year. You can no longer use Hangouts to send SMS to/from your Google Voice number. You'll need to use its designated replacement, which is the Google Voice app and the Google Voice website.

When they first mentioned discontinuing, I tried GV for texting but found group texting did not work like Hangouts - did not like it. What are your preferred alternative?

Yep, that's no more. Sad, but true. Thankfully, I have not ran into issues with the GV app.

You should be able to do everything in the GV app that you were able to do in the Hangouts app before it was decommissioned from GV integration.

May be a stupid ? but I'm never sure if there are features I'm ignorant of.
I see that the GV dialer has a "hold" button. What does it do? Can I make 3 way calls by putting call 1 on hold, make call 2 then "un-hold" call 1? I couldn't get it to work that way.
Anything else?

Noticed another thing... a message in Hangouts did not show up on Voice. I only found out about it by logging in to email and seeing it there.
