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 can't believe others are not mentioning the ability to have different vmail msg per group. Hands down the best feature. New interface is sleek. Please bring back the widget or tell us why you HAD to remove it. I KNOW this service is free, and thank you, but I'd be willing to PAY. Stop spending resources on Google+ which is just not going anywhere. My customers love when they call and get a custom message bypassing my general message. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THAT AWAY. Again VERY willing to pay for Google Voice.
Google Voice was working fine and was reliable, some times a bit late on the delivery of messages, but acceptable. Then came the latest update... my outgoing messages now get queued for long periods of time, some never make it out. A couple of times I've received "network connection problems" notifications when trying to send messages. I even got a "Could not be sent. Quota exceeded" message... what is up whit that? I was under the impression that text messages with Google Voice were free and unlimited. I am eagerly waiting for a quick fix to these issues.
Been using this for years and have been very satisfied. The new update (finally) has improved it. I use this often when I'm offshore and have no cell signal. Integrating with Hangouts, I can receive my calls and texts even when I don't have carrier service. Sprint integration works well and all my voicemail goes thru Voice.
You guys are on a roll. Finally this app is taken seriously by Google. Few things. Do not disturb was added but we need the function that sets the amount of time. I should be able to silence calls after 7pm and return to service at 8am. I want to thank you all for your hard work. Many of us were faithful for years even by passing Hangouts waiting for you to do right by GV and you did.
I love the revamp on Voice! It has such a sharp, effective interface which matches alright with the website. Group messages now all stay in one group, which I've struggled with in previous apps. Ive told all my friends to now only use my Voice number Now I can stay in touch or my tablet computer and phone!
Improved (most issues fixed) VERSION Still Has NO WIDGET! Very Hard 2 Use now! Convos Still mashed together, NOT SEPARATE BY DAY! STILL Extremely Bright! Where's the AMOLED Love? Added Multimedia! Otherwise Notifies of missed calls/voicemails instantly. Voicemail translations to text a plus, and occasionally hilarious! Filtering, forwarding, and call screening. Qued text msg until on wifi very useful! Love & Hate... Mostly 💗
