While it's easy to call a store if you find it through a Google search on your phone, it's a bit more of a hassle on your computer -- you frequently have to copy the number into your voice app of choice. However, Google is removing even that minor inconvenience. The company's search results now include a Hangouts calling option that gets you in touch with any location right through your desktop web browser; if you see a big set of digits, one click will start the conversation. As with Google's other internet calling services, you can reach out to any American or Canadian number for free. This isn't the biggest time-saver in the world, to be sure, but you may appreciate it the next time you're phoning in a reservation at your favorite eatery.
