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).

This app somehow gets worse over time. The web interface is slow and freezes constantly on all computers and all browsers. This has been going on for years at this point. The sound quality is worse than if you use the native phone app somehow? Everything about this app scream that Google has forgotten it... I wish this worked. It would be nice to know when I get a message but half the time I don't get anything. It would also be nice to have more options to sort contacts and groups from the app.

I use this Google number is a business number that rings to my regular cell phone. I like the options in which you can have it go straight to voicemail and send you an email so that you are not disturbed during certain hours. I like the fact that you can have your contacts stored, messages, and everything easily search through in this app or by email that is associated with this app. It can make calls over your Wi-Fi or your network.

2019: pretty damn good for most part. Not perfect, (dialer/hangouts) could be better, however it's a helluvalot better than I could do... 2022: been using Google voice for I don't even know how long. Pretty much since it was released, so it's been a minute. Nothing is perfect & there's one feature I wish would return, but it is solid. It works well all the time, never have to be concerned with number change no matter how many phones or services I go thru. Well done y'all
