I scheduled a Google Hangout from Google Calendar (under my personal Gmail account). I'd like to have a way for participants to join it by phone only - either them dialing in or me dialing out to them.

How can I do this? I tried installing the UberConference Google Hangouts app, but when I open it, I just see a panel saying that it is loading (have not been able to get it to load).

I saw this support article, but I do not see a "call tab" as described.

    What about if you click "add Person"? (The left-most icon to the right of Google.) Does that give you an option for a phone number?

  • You might need to have a Google Voice number (or Google Fi) in order to dial out to people.

    @ale yes, clicking the "add person" icon was the way to do it! I added screenshots in an answer.

As @ale suggested, clicking the "add person" icon brings up this dialog

add person dialog

and from there, clicking the phone keypad icon (to the right of the "add names or email addresses" field) brings up another dialog from which you can dial a phone number.

call phone dialog
