There has been a slow ongoing integration.
Quote
An update to the Hangouts app back in October of last year added Google Voice integration with the ability to make and receive phone calls.
To get the new feature to work, simply visit the Google Voice website (you’ll need to set up a Google Voice number of course) and click the Call button in the left-hand sidebar. You’ll type in the number you want to call and then you’ll select Hangouts from the Phone to call with drop-down menu.

You could always forward your Google Voice to your landline and cellphone simultaneously.  That way you can answer from any device until it gets fixed on your computer.  I have mine ringing multiple numbers at the same time.

Yes I could test on multiple phones.
But these links show me that I am using old software; hangouts does not auto update.
More testing required but at least I know I am now using new software.
