What is Google Voice/Hangouts like on iOS?

Right now I have a work-issued Verizon Samsung GS4. It has my work line, but I also have a personal number through Google Voice. On there I can receive calls/texts through the hangouts app.

I've been given the go ahead to get an iPhone and transfer the service over to it. I realize that I can't make hangouts the default messaging/SMS app in iOS, but does it still have all the features as the Android version?

I would expect it to:
- Be able to make outgoing calls on Google Voice line using data
- Incoming calls on Google Voice use minutes via carrier line
- SMS/MMS work through hangouts using data

Does anyone have experience with that on iOS?

I use Google Hangouts on my iPhone 6S+ and do all those things.

The only thing is that the minutes won't be part of you phone allowance to my knowledge.
