Is there a way to make audio only calls with Hangouts? My data plan is very limited (100 MB), and I do not want to waste it on video.

  • Not really, no. But a Hangout can be used to call a telephone number. – ale Aug 16 '13 at 12:50
  • AFAIK you can initiate a call, and then turn off the camera − which basically would make it an "audio only call". – Izzy Aug 16 '13 at 13:02
  • Would turning off the camera reduce significantly the data usage? – András Aug 16 '13 at 13:40
  • @András I would assume so. Video is larger compared to audio. – geffchang Aug 16 '13 at 16:14
  • I knew that part I am just not sure hangouts will not keep sending the blank screen as video. It will not be a lot because of the compression, but still. – András Aug 21 '13 at 18:30
