Why must "Clickable Numbers" call me back? Why not dial directly? clarkb 5/15/12 8:21 AM
I'm using the Google Voice extension for Chrome.  It has an option for "clickable numbers", which will then call you back on the selected phone, and once you answer, it will connect you with the number you clicked on from the web page you were browsing.  Great feature, BUT...  I don't want it to call me back.  I just want it to dial using the headset connected to my computer speakers.  I can do this for my contacts in gmail.  Or I can manually type the number.  But I can't figure out how to dial this way for "clickable numbers".  The problem is that I am using an OBI box for Google Voice.  So incoming calls to the Google voice number go to the analog phone with no headset.  So of course, when the "clickable numbers" calls me back, it goes to that phone.  Is there a different extension or something that will do this?  Thanks.  CB.

Using Google Voice to make and receive calls "on your computer" uses Gmail's Chat service. As does the third-party Obi box. Unfortunately, you can't use both at the same time, so you'll need to determine whether you wish to make and receive calls "on your computer, OR make and receive calls with the Obi.

Thanks for your reply. This is exactly what I had determined.  But I have both options in Gmail, so it appears to be technically possible.  I was hoping there was another Chrome extension that would  enable this behavior.
