Review from A Google User
Critical service I use. Been using my Google voice number as my main number since I have more than one phone (iPhone & Android) for 5 years. This service let's me get my calls whichever device I am carrying and even routes calls to Hangouts app on my desktop so I can take calls on my laptop. I understand this app operates in the background since hangouts is the new front facing interface but I certainly hope Google shows this application some much needed attention by updating it. Google please keep this critical service going.
I use Google voice for all my calls and text messaging. I have records of text messages from long ago across several phone providers and I have control of it all. I have several phone numbers that can all answer my GV line. It transcribes my messages and lets me know what the caller wanted without having to listen to every message. Its portable and convenient. If I leave my phone at home I just forward it to what ever is close. It keeps all of my contact information so I don't have to worry about contact
Google voice not integrated well It's huge as Google loves to make all there apps ridiculously large and not moveable to the SD card. I find it odd that Google doesn't take the time to make apps that are compatible with Android products. There is no block call list and even phone calls that are set to not go through do and they get sent to the phone vmail not google.
Very basic Shows transcriptions that are nearly impossible to understand, and corrections cannot be made from within the app. If you get a lot of hangups (short or zero content recordings) there is no way to mark read or delete in bulk...they have to be handled one by one. There have been no updates to the functionality of this app in well over a year (recent updates are just bug fixes), and at this point I would consider it pretty much abandonware. I expected better from Google...
Galaxy s7 edge not working anymore I've used google voice with every phone up until I purchased a new s7 edge. Now for some reason it will not integrate with sprint. I've tried multiple times still nothing. Please let me know if I'm missing sonething would like to use again
This app has been a frustration from the beginning. I have 10 dollars credit but it wont' let me place a call to USA. It keeps telling me (in korean) to check the number again. I know it is right. Now the app says it can't verify my phone number. I'm so confused and frustrated. Why can't I simply make a fn call? Magic Jack was so much easier than this mess google has going on here. I do not recommend.
