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'm not quite sure how anyone would rate a free app like this, which is so versatile, anything but five stars. It's not perfect, but for $0 I challenge you to find a better product. I've been using Google Voice for over a decade at this point and I love it. Replying to messages from a PC is particularly valuable and easy to do with this app. It cannot send any reasonably sized attachment beyond a basic picture or gif. However, for $0, which one can?

As long as you have the connection for it, you can make calls and send texts. It may not have a bunch of bells and whistles but it's free and functional. I personally enjoy the novelty of being able to text people through my email, just make sure that you use your email account directly because things like the email manager app on windows computers might wrap your message in a bunch of extra text. Overall though, this app and service has never disappointed me.

Very useful but still feels unfinished. Little things like not being able to copy more than one text "line" at a time, not being able to forward texts to email, not being able to select what the key does (on my phone it allows me to go down one line, on my computer it sends all the text already entered), not seeing all your important options when your screen size changes, not being able to see the Google Contacts labels for multiple phone numbers...
