I'm afraid you need the Google Talk plugin which isn't available with ARM 6, the Raspberry Pi's processor technology. Even then you'd need to faff around getting a webcam set up. There is a voice over IP program but you may need to get your friends Raspberry Pi! :-) The link is http://uelastix.com/#

If you are buying a RPi 2B ARMv7 Model and will be running Raspbian Jessie "IT MAY" be feasible to undertake Hangouts Video / Chat from within a Web Browser:

(u)elastix, asterisk, RasPBX etc are VoIP PBXs. They are NOT VoIP clients.

The Gajim GTK+-based Jabber client is also supposed to work with Google Talk ;)

UV4L allows you to join a Jitsi Meet Room over the Web. Video is broadcast (one-way at the moment) and audio is two-way (you can also hear other participants):

Dont know if this is still relevant or not but I managed to have a video call on chromium 45 on raspbian jessie.
I think follow the instructions at viewtopic.php?t=121195 and it should work out of the box.

The video is a bit laggy and I had to set it to the least bandwidth setting but it worked with a standard logitech webcam. I think it will get better once we get h/w acceleration

When you use Pidgin and login-in via your Google-Talk-account (a Google-Mail account using Jabber then), you can basically do VoiP over Pidgin, but so far I've only seen it work on Ubuntu PCs and to adjust the micro and speakers is not as easy as for example Skype's auto-adjustment.
Now when I use Pidgin on an Ubuntu PC to call Pidgin on a Pi (Ubuntu Mate on Pi2), the two clients say "establishing connection" but then it doesn't continue. I don't know if I am missing something or if it doesn't work generally.

In the past I have done Google Hangout Video on Raspberry Pi 2 using Chromium under Lubuntu 14.04. The trick I have found is to make sure your USB devices are being powered by a separate power supply. Having difficulty replicating it at the current moment. Might be because I am overclocking or flaky wifi or something else.... Your mileage may vary.
