This subclass of L<Number::Phone> is used in exactly the same way as the normal
Number::Phone, but it exclusively uses classes generated from Google's
L<libphonenumber project|>.
libphonenumber doesn't have enough data to support all the features of
Number::Phone, but you might want to use its data and no other for a few


=item *

Compatibility with libphonenumber's Java, C++, and JavaScript implementations.

=item *

Performance. UK Number parsing and validation by Number::Phone::UK, in particular,
has a substantial overhead thanks to its embedded database. If all you need is
simple validation and/or formatting, all that overhead is unnecessary.


That said, the core Number::Phone UK module
is far more comprehensive.

=head1 METHODS

There is one method, a constructor:

=head2 new

Call this in exactly the same way as you would call C<Number::Phone->new()>. The
only difference is that you will get stubs back instead of "full-fat" objects,
even if full-fat classes are available.

=head1 LICENCE

You may use, modify and distribute this software under the same terms as
perl itself.
