About this app

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 Google Workspace 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 Google Workspace users is available in select countries. Check with your administrator for access.
• Calls made using Google Voice for Android can be placed through a Google Voice access number. All access number based calls use the standard minutes from your cell phone plan and may incur costs (e.g. when traveling internationally).

Almost worth it Using this app since years now, the prices are great, calls are almost clear. The speed and reliability of the app are still the same as years ago. The reason for me to go out of my way to write a review after using this app for years is there is no improvement at all. Always giving some kinds of trouble. New thing that's been bugging me is the bluetooth can't be engaged when I am already in a call and switch the audio to Bluetooth.

I started to use Google Voice when I had no cell service, but I had access to wifi. It helped me stay in touch with family when traveling, which I would not have had otherwise. It works fairly well. I have experienced only minor tech issues, but NOTHING that is major. Just need to figure out the quirkiness. I now use it more often than my phone's messaging app. I do recommend it.

This app is a dumpster fire. It's about the least functional texting/calling app I've seen. I've been using google voice since 2009. The app hasn't been substantively updated in years. Can't send MMS, decent photos, videos, no link previews and the UI is archaic. It would be fine in 2007 but now it's embarrassing. But those who need the google voice number are stuck. Yet another great idea and product google abandoned. Yes it's free but I'd gladly pay for a functional version.
