How can you make a call over Wi-Fi on an Android tablet?

I long ago did away with my landline telephone and have been using a cellphone exclusively for years. One thing that I didn’t consider was what happens if I am temporarily without that cellphone. Well, “someone” (ahem) dropped his phone and shattered the screen, so until I get it back from being replaced, I don’t have a phone to make calls with at all. I do however have a WiFi Nexus 7 tablet. Can I make calls using the tablet over WiFi?
You can use Google Hangouts (Google voice) to make and receive calls over Wi-Fi. The link below has instruction on setting up an account and using this feature.

Alternatively there are a number of other apps that allow you to do the same. This link contains a few popular ones.
