Google Voice VoIP Calling rolling out to beta Android & Web users.

Last Wednesday, Google finally announced that VoIP would be coming to Google Voice for Android and the web. A beta program allows users to test out the feature before a wider release, with the first sign-ups getting the feature enabled on their accounts.
For the most part, VoIP does not change the experience of using Google Voice. After receiving an email that confirms “Wi-Fi calling is now available for your account,” there will be a new “Make and receive calls” menu in Settings where you can set “Prefer Wi-Fi and mobile data” over “Use carrier only.”
Upon enabling, users will be asked to grant an audio recording system permission for Voice. Heading to “Incoming calls” will allow users to “Select devices you want to answer calls.” By default, a new “Web” option will be enabled, with users able to select other devices to ring.
Meanwhile, heading to the Calls tab and tapping the FAB reveals a dialer where users can make outgoing calls with a standard interface.
