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)

    This is perhaps my most used app. Arrgh!! More recently the app frequently crashes as I'm entering a text message! 😡 both on the phone I have running iOS 10 and the one running iOS 11. Arrgh!! Recently the app frequently requires I reconfigure it when I launch it. Update: I think they fixed that in around January 2018. Why can't I set a default phone like I can when using the web-based app? ... call with Hangouts. Makes hard to use iPad as a phone! :-( See this note on the google play store app, re. Talkatone. Is this going to impact this Google Voice app too? I'm WORRIED. SPECIAL NOTE TO EXISTING TALKATONE FOR GOOGLE VOICE USERS: Talkatone will continue to support Google Voice users until May 15, 2014. After May 15, 2014 Talkatone users will no longer be able to access Google Voice through Talkatone because Google is discontinuing third party access to Google Voice on that date. We encourage all existing Talkatone for Google Voice users to consider switching to the new Talkatone service, the features of which are described above, prior to May 15, 2014 to ensure a seamless and uninterrupted transition. Happy Talking!
  • Glitchy

    By Bengalidan
    I used this for work daily for a couple of years. Not great, but pretty functional. My work made me use Jive this year, and recently gave us the choice to return to Google Voice due to a few glitches. After two weeks I am returning to Jive. This app is almost nonfunctional. If I keyboard numbers quickly, the app doesn’t accept them. Incoming calls will not route to my cell phone, but will only go to my computer. It doesn’t record VM consistently. Its a mess.
  • Good app but I wish I’d be notified my Google Voice line was ringing!

    By Dawifey
    I’m applying for jobs, for scam purposes I didn’t want to give out my real phone number so I got a number from Google Voice. It’s super easy to use and works well. I haven’t had any issues with it crashing or anything and the texts come through quickly when I use that feature. My issue is that I don’t answer calls when they are coming from unknown numbers so I keep declining these calls (because it’s not ringing directly to the app but it’s forwarding the call to my actual phone number) and I can miss an important call rendering the Google Voice redundant. Even if there was a little notification on my phone saying Google Voice call or if it rings my personal cell from one specific number, then at least I’d know...
  • Aweful

    I used to love google voice but now that they’ve made all of these changes and forced a horrible app on us I am super frustrated. I can’t send a text to a new person who is not saved as a contact. Even worse, I can’t save a new contact!!!!! Wth??? 🤬

  • Uncommon UI is Confusuing

    By GBgb
    This app has been bug riddled for a long time but finally it seems what you can really call version 1.0. However, this app design is so unconventional compared to any messaging app by any developer. Very confusing and unfriendly. Why can’t Google just make a NORMAL app?
  • Half of my calls never ring the phone

    By Nemonocerater
    I have been using Voice for 3 years. I’ve ignored this at times because the text messaging is great and constantly improved, so I assumed that calls would be at some point too. I very often am sitting right next to my phone and get an email saying I have a voice mail and a missed call. The phone never rang. I was available to pick it up if it had rung. When I need to schedule stuff with people who have lots of meetings and calls I can’t afford to play voice message pong. Google voice allows me to give out a consistent number that I can use across devices and as I change SIM cards in foreign countries, so I hope to continue using it. But, if I can’t even accept incoming calls I can’t continue trusting this service.
  • Good but there is one problem

    By delew1
    The app does what it is supposed to but sometimes I am not able to send photos.
  • Disgrace to the google name

    By Qqqqpond
    Keeps crashing while I type a number to call.
  • Useful but could be better

    By Aidensma10
    I use Google Voice for work to contact clients. It works well most of the time and the call quality is good. The keypad could be better though. I have to enter the numbers several times to get them to “stick” and they are too close together so it is easy to hit the wrong digit. Also when I dial a number and hit “Call” an entirely different number comes up on the screen. It’s hard to verify the number after it’s dialed because it doesn’t show. I think it could be an excellent App if these improvements could be made to make it more user friendly.
