In Gmail, there used to be a plugin at lower left corner for using Gtalk to call other people. When I click the phone icon, there was a list of recent phone numbers that I have called.

Now Gtalk has retired, the lower left corner still shows the phone icon, but when I click it, there is no list of recent phone numbers, but a list of phone numbers ordered by their owners' names.

How shall I get a list of recent call numbers in the Gmail webpage, and redial one recent number quickly? (I know that I can find out my history in Google Voice webpage, but I want to do it from Gmail).

From: View call history through Hangouts on your computer - Hangouts Help

You can view your call history for phone calls made through Hangouts or Google Voice calls in Hangouts. If you have a Google Voice number, your call history will also show calls made to and from your Google Voice number.

Here's how to view your call history for Hangouts on your computer:

In Gmail

  1. Open Hangouts in Gmail .
  2. Click the phone tab phone icon.
  3. Next to the search box, click the add credit icon Add credit icon.
  4. Google Voice will open, where you can view your complete call history.

    This is stupendously hard to figure out on your own. Note that these instructions appear not to work, at least if you have Google Voice. Commented Oct 10, 2015 at 19:13

Yeah, I only just now figured this out. I've been going to Google Voice.

This also lets you add the number to your contacts.
