Google Voice gives you a free phone number for calling, text messaging, and voicemail. It works on smartphones and computers, and syncs across your devices so you can use the app while on the go or at home. You’re in control Forward calls, text messages, and voicemail to any of your devices, and get spam filtered automatically. Block numbers you don’t want to hear from. Backed up and searchable Calls, text messages, and voicemails are stored and backed up to make it easy for you to search your history. Chat in groups, with photos Send group texts and share photos instantly. Your voicemail, transcribed Google Voice provides free voicemail transcriptions that you can read in the app or have sent to your email. Cheap international calling Make international calls at competitive rates without using your mobile data. Keep in mind: • Google Voice is currently only available in the US • All calls made using Google Voice for iPhone use the standard minutes from your cell phone plan • Calls are placed through a US-based Google Voice access number, which may incur costs (e.g. when traveling internationally)



  • Crashes constantly!

    By profcharmaine
    I've used this app for years and the number of times it crashes is increasing. It's now every 3-5 texts! Why can't google make a reliable app?
  • After recent update, it constantly crashes

    By ivwshane
    This app crashes multiple times a day now, like almost every other time I use it. I would think Google would be quicker to respond to such serious issues.
  • Forget about texting

    By Otherlleft
    As of the 7/2/18 update, this app crashes when I try to open a text, but usually opens is successfully upon reboot. For several months, perhaps as long as a year, it's been not uncommon for a text to fail upon sending. Together, this makes the single most useful feature all but useless. Following is my review from five years ago, because none of those issues have ever been addressed. ===== I record phone interviews for later transcription, and this app is a good tool for that, but could be better. First, Voice only allows recording of incoming calls, no matter the app. Why? Second, playing of a recording stops if the app is not forget checking a text, and turn off the auto-lock. Preferable would be to shut it off to avoid audio conflicts, like most apps. Last, the UI is problematic, because the pause button is right next to the inbox button, and if you accidentally move to the inbox when you want to pause, the recording restarts at the beginning instead of remembering its last location. This review and rating is based on this single feature.
  • Crashes now every few seconds.

    By Liowik
    Just updated to latest. Crashes every few secovds. All I have to do to reproduce is open any message, Close it, then go to a different person and open that message and app crashes every time! This is required fundamental usage in order to be able to use the app! I've tried rebooting it doesn't fix it! I thought they had gotten past their dark ages. But I guess not! ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE QUALITY CONTROL. NEED QA THAT CONSISTENTLY TESTS USING A VARIETY OF PHONES AND ENVIRONMENTS!. i'm using a standard iPhone 6s 64 GB,iOS 10.3.1 with plenty of free space. And iOS is a pretty controlled environment. No excuse! This is not some new phenomenon. This app has had a history of constant trouble from many many users!
  • Disappointed

    By Cabins At Dale Hollow
    Google Voice Use to be a great app. Now, my assistant and I don't get incoming calls, voice messages come in hours later and the same with texts. I use all the Google services for my business at cost so this is very disappointing. I checked the app and it is up-to-date. Thank you
  • 5 stars for years.

    By JinChicago
    12/18/2015 Evening. Back to 5* It's working right again. My Google voice number is the only number I use. None know any of my real numbers. Couldn't be happier. They had bug today now it's fixed. I could go on, better you create your Google voice number then download this app. WARNING- There is another app not from Google says Google voice app. It asks your password to login. Since not Google app could compromise your password. Download only this app.
  • Seems to be hacked by scammer since they can bypass DND mode

    By lanwarrior
    I have “Do not disturb” (DND) in Google Voice turned on for a long time, which means that EVERY CALL will not ring and just go straight to the voicemail. Recently, even when DND is ON, calls from scammer went through and Google Voice will ring. However, legitimate call still goes through DND.
  • Bugs galore

    By Sinsio
    The latest updates have introduced a lot of bugs that render the app unusable. The app freezes when taking a picture for texting. When refreshing text messages, the whole screen goes grey until restarting the app. At this point, I do not recommend updating Google Voice to the current version.

    By Wakiyan
    IPad 10.3.3 crashes and I hear ios11 is worse. Google, are you going to fix this?
  • Updates are Hit & Miss

    By Dtunvsjurcbjgssr
    It's a relatively decent app. Just be careful when you update it. Not all updates are good. IOS 10.3.3 iPhone 6SE latest update crashes constantly. Worked great before the current version (downloaded 07/10/18).
