Due to a recent change made by the Google+ product team, UMICH users are no longer be able to invite participants to a Hangout by entering a phone number. To support the telephone option in Google+ Hangouts, the Google Voice service must now also be enabled, which it is not for U-M. Turning on Voice in UMICH is being explored, however no decision to enable this service has yet been made.
