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).

Been using it almost since it came out. Finally google got something right. Never had a problem with call quality, or dropped calls. I so wish they would allow voice to have it's own contacts. I use it as a work cell phone of sorts, since I am not supplied one I give my Google Voice number out to work for contact I don't like having to add them to my main contacts as well. Would be interesting if they put a video feature in.

While I appreciate the free service, 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/off issues with Bluetooth. I can hear the caller, but they can't hear me… Only happens on Google Voice. Because of this I've been using another app. It also needs minimal permissions.

Hi there. Make sure that you accept all permissions for the Voice app after you install. If all seems set, try clearing the app's cache and see to it you have the latest version. You may also share your feedback in the Google Voice app > Menu > Help & Feedback.

New update made it impossible to use!! Now no one can hear me whether I disconnect from wifi or use a different connection. Or if it's on speaker or headphone or not. Nothing helps. I keep having to call people back from my personal number and it works just fine when I do that. So it's not the area or the wifi but the app that's the issue. It worked just fine before you updated it. PLEASE FIX THIS
