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).

I've had this since it came out. Works great. But it's fallen behind as of past few years. I really can't wait when all carriers (and Apple) get on the same standard with all the modern bells and whistles that we've been waiting for. One thing that I hate is that the texts don't come through to my cars (any car). They used to let us forward all texts to our actual carrier, and it was a nice little workaround, but this feature has been removed about two years ago.

Still wish there were a way to send videos and they really need to go back to being able to set a separate ring tone for the app versus regular number. Lastly, I have to scroll back through hundreds of photos chronologically to find what I need because Voice doesn't recognize my phone's photo albums and that's an added frustration. It has many fine capabilities, but these small things make a big difference in terms of user friendliness and productivity.

While I appreciate the free service and phone number, it's hard to believe there is no scheduling, send delay or search. Cannot attach small video/voice clips. Voice-to-text is horrible. Tries to predict, rather than dictate. Now, I'm having on and off issues with Bluetooth. I can hear the caller, but they can't hear me… Only happens on Google Voice.
