Review from A Google User
Works most of the time Some phone numbers google voice has difficulty connecting to. Over all it works well. WHEN WILL GOOGLE VOICE HAVE A 'REMEMBER THIS' OPTION??? That would be great because I always call certain numbers with google voice and many numbers are not called with google voice. I'm referring to the prompt that shows up when making a call. Thanks Google.
I absolutely LOVE Google Voice as my primary phone number to call and receive texts. The voicemail transcripts are way awesome! I haven't listened to a voicemail in a dogs age. Best free phone/text app period and it's FREE! My only gripe is the random colors it assigns your contacts. Should be able to choose the color of the contact icon and text bubbles. Other than that this is top notch. Would get 5 stars from me if the devs would fix that one thing.
Another update comes and goes, and I still haven't gotten a single notification for voicemail or texts, and I have to log in EVERY TIME I OPEN THE APP. 0/10 would not recommend.
Overall good job with new version. Please bring all features from old gv to new gv. Outgoing voicemail messaging recording would be nice to see.
Push notifications do not work. The app does not refresh or sync until manually opened. S7 Edge.
No VOIP??? Doesn't that defeat the foundation of Google Voice? Google; jack of all trades, master of none
Missing Emoji, smileys, and other basic texting features. Not up to standard at all. No real improvement on droid since inception. I only use through hangouts.
