Google Voice gives you a 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 in the office, at home, or on the go. NOTE: Google Voice only works for personal Google Accounts in the US and G Suite accounts in select markets. Text messaging is not supported in all markets. You’re in control Get spam filtered automatically and block numbers you don’t want to hear from. Manage your time with personalized settings for forwarding calls, text messages, and voicemail. Backed up and searchable Calls, text messages, and voicemails are stored and backed up to make it easy for you to search your history. Manage messages across devices Send and receive individual and group SMS messages from all your devices Your voicemail, transcribed Google Voice provides advanced voicemail transcriptions that you can read in the app and/or have sent to your email. Save on international calling Make international calls at competitive rates without paying extra for international minutes with your mobile carrier Keep in mind: • Google Voice is currently only available in the US. Google Voice for G Suite users is in Early Adopter Program and available in select countries. Check with your administrator for access. • Calls made using Google Voice for iPhone can be placed through a Google Voice access number.

  • Good app, but missing a few features that you take for granted

    By ibk071
    Overall, I like Google voice. You can your texts on numerous devices, allowing you freedom from your phone and a great deal of flexibility. There are couple things that I would love to see improved - an easy way to export text messages, and an easy to way to quickly get rid of history (calls specifically).
  • Amazing

    By Goblinlight104_YT
    It’s amazing! The only true free phone#. The only thing I hate about it is that you can’t use it 4 EVERYTHING. You can only use it for accounts by google mostly. Otherwise, it’s really good! I don’t need to text or call someone once a month at least to keep my number *cough cough, TextNow*.
  • Can't set up

    By BowmanDiesel
    I want to link my current us number to Google voice, but the app refuses to allow me to set it up.
  • Trash App

    By Adhdgj
    This app used to be good, but now it has never ending bugs. I can’t paste a new phone number to a text message, I have to type it manually to get it to be recognized, seriously?!?! Inbox doesn’t automatically update either, Pathetic.
  • No longer receiving calls/text

    By tooky1986
    It’s linked to my phone and they are no longer coming to my phone just the app
  • New Google Voice = Junk

    By Zimblotnik
    This app is unreliable, a resource hog, and crashes frequently. Messages will not send on the first try, and often the first several tries. Contacts are now unmanageable and uneditable.
  • Back to 1 star

    By dl97ag
    Latest version removed the handy “+” button from tabs 1-3, reducing flexibility (change for the sake of change should be avoided...) Making a Call no longer has alpha/contact search ability - this alone justifies the 1 star. Would be great to have numeric keypad option when sending Messages (long-standing deficincy). Sorting reverted back to often putting non-Mobile numbers first in the auto-complete output. New green icon is too similar to Hangouts green icon, easily confused when viewing iOS notifications. Bring back the blue!
  • Doesn’t forward text messages

    By ttboy60
    UPDATED 9/20/18 : This is the most unreliable app to ever have on your phone. I’m done with it. In this day and age of technology it’s in infancy. WTH happened on the past year? For some reason it struggles to forward text messages to your linked number. This is a continuous aggravating issue. It’s obvious that google couldn’t give a $?@& about it so I’ve migrated my phone number into my at&t cell account. Screw google voice. For people who read reviews just stay away from the voice app if your counting on yours texts linked to your cell number. DO NOT DO NOT LINK A NUMBER. YOU WONT GET TEXTS. This app is irrelevant to the multi billion $$$ google. I’ve even got rid of the OBIHAI device and went to Callcentric Use to be 5*. Had to drop it to below average for the reason it doesn’t forward texts and the default alert sound is irreverent like a leaf falling on the ground. No one at google is acknowledging this issue. Probably cuz it’s free and who cares. Update: still not getting texts forwarded to my linked mobile phone. I’m being forced to give out my mobile number. Seems ever since hangouts came on the scene. What ever happened to gv?
  • Missing calls!

    By NettaJ2
    I used to have bad cell service with one of my carriers so I always gave my Google Voice number to important contacts because even if the call came through it would be seen as a missed call and I would get a voicemail. NOW if I get a call and the person doesn’t leave a voicemail I would have no clue that they call. No missed calls show up. Incoming calls are a hit and miss. Please correct.
  • New App, Similar Issues

    By Civil Retort
    I was an early GV adopter (Grand Central), but I must say the recent updates have been consistently aggravating. I understand it is a free service (part of the Google ecosystem), but the user should expect to receive every call/message and not deal with crashing. As reviewed on previous versions, the user experience is clumsy, functionality has been sacrificed and the simple task of deleting has become impossible. Transcript has gotten better for the AI has room to improve. Where has my high quality GV gone? Please bring it back.
