VOIP options for Europe?

Google discontinued 3rd party apps support for VOIP apps on 5/15 and their Hangout won’t provide VOIP on Android for now. What do people use abroad, esp. on Android for calling US not through their cellular voice connection?

    I’ve been using this.. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gvoip&hl=en It won’t work with GV, but they do offer another service ring.to I’ve been playing around with it. It seems to work as well as any other voip/sip solution I’ve researched… other than setting up your own asterisk server.

    Here’s info on ring.to ring.to is actually a url. You can get a new number or port a number. https://ring.to/groove/

    I’ve been using VoIP.ms for about a year. Most calls worldwide cost about $0.15 per minute (you have to watch out, a couple of area codes in the UK and Europe are more expensive because of the operator’s charges – cell phone systems). I run it on my laptop using jitsi as the client and through an ATA at home. I can also use it through my iPad but I haven’t found a free client that lets me receive calls, and I’m cheap.

      Sorry, that is $0.015 a minute, not fifteen cents. Even calls from N.A. to China.

    I get a text package- $50 for 500 from AT&T. Otherwise I use my computer and skype, there’s free wireless almost everywhere.

    Skype always worked well for me from anywhere in the world with even a half-assed Internet connection.
