Awesome. I know this was available in the original Google Talk, but it is nice to see this coming back together.

Make Phone Calls using the Hangouts Sidebar
Now we can make Video calls, or Phone calls using the Hangout Sidebar… here is the full info: http://goo.gl/eRco4
We were able to make phone calls from within a hangout invite dialog box for a little while now, or receive phone calls inside a hangout as well, but now we can do what many people have been missing: Initiate a Phone Call from the Hangout Sidebar interface.
Open up the Sidebar via the Green Hangouts symbol, then choose the Drop-down options… below the Snooze notifications area, we can also choose to initiate a phone call (like the ‘days of old’ with Google Voice).
Happy days are ‘hear’ again for those that want to use Google to make phone calls!

Is this working for you yet? I can’t seem to find it on mine.
I don’t have it yet either.
Only seems to be in the Goole+ left sidebar. Not in the other places where Hangouts exist.
The screen shot is fron the right side bar.
Whoops. I meant right. It is working for me right now from there.
I have been able to receive a call for a few weeks, but initiating a call is new for me today.
