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 been using Google Voice for well over a decade. I signed up when it was invite only access. Started using it on my PC, through Gmail/Hangouts mostly and it was a fairly consistent, usable service for calls (redirecting to linked devices, blocking, scheduling, record incoming, etc), texting and voicemail (used to be able to download as MP3). Jump ahead to smartphones and it's still pretty solid. Overall a good user experience. But I can't help wonder why, in 2022, there's no video voicemail.

Out of 10 texts, 7 won't go thru on the 1st attempt. Error says 'can't send now' then says 'error loading conversations' when you go out of the app and back in. You cannot send multi pictures or one video without it being a link. The phone quality is poor. The Google Voice # will not work for registration on some items. One HUGE plus is that the account (calls & texts) is accessible via desktop. This was a huge help when I was without a cell phone for 2 weeks. And it's free.

The one thing I really don't like about this app is that it doesn't have a scheduled send. Almost every other text app allows you that ability and it is so important for me since I am a night owl and most people don't want a late night text. 07/24/22 In a recent update, I cannot dial a phone number without the app locking up. Google seems to push out updates without testing because this is not the first time major errors have surfaced.
