Incoming+calls+on+Hangouts

I'm on $15 a month prepaid plan with a 500 minute talk booster. If someone calls me from the States using Hangouts, do those minutes count against my booster minutes?

They would count towards your data limit. All Hangouts calls use data for it.

I should have said I had data turned off and I was using Wifi. But my account still shows 47 minutes of talk user.

I also thought Hangouts used Wifi when available

If they used Hangouts to dial your phone number, yes, that would count against your booster minutes...

If they called you on Hangouts direct, it would only use WiFi. How did the call come in?

How does one call on Hangouts direct vs using Hangouts to dial your phone number?

Hangouts direct is when the caller calls you on your Hangouts app - like a video call for example. Anything that didn't involve calling your actual number, in other words.
