Review from A Google User
Organization I love the app but it has absolutely no organization. The text messages look like a mess. It needs to start putting texts into continuous threads.
Why does Google come out with updates that have less functionality?! No dark mode. Visual voicemail no longer works with googles own dialer. Can't select more than one item at a time. The list goes on and on. What is going wrong with Google lately?! Update: Still doesn't integrate into Google's dialer like the old Google voice app did
I'm rating the app changes and not the service. Still angry about the horrible UX flow in regards to deleting items. Multi-select with an accessible delete button would be helpful. Really glad the widget is back but using nova launcher with the widgets doesn't work. When trying to resize the 4x4 widget, it responsively shrinks to the smaller one. Still unusable.
Google Voice USE to be a Fantastic application awhile ago. The past Several "Updates have completely RUINED this application." Also there should be a Much Easier way to delete messages with out having to do several things to delete anything. Also you should be able to change color of contact's etc. GOOGLE PLEASE Read The MANY Great Reviews Here And PAY ATTENTION For A Change. Google Your Company Really Needs To LISTEN To The People Who Are Using Your VOICE APP!!!
Activated it via the web interface online and it works perfectly. Any chance we'll get VOIP calling for google voice instead of having to use hangouts?The phone dialer app doesn't see the visual voice mails, but my messages are visible in the Google voice app. I am running Android 7.0
Not allowed to even try this app as a Project Fi user. It just closes on me. Stuck with legacy Hangouts app. Don't understand point of all these separate messaging apps. Please consolidate efforts.
Please just add a dialpad within the app, so on the occasion you want to call from your Google voice number, you can more easily and practically do so. I don't want to select which number to call from before every single call, or toggle it on when I want to use my Google voice number and then back off. This is really annoying and tedious, as well as puzzling how such a rudimentary, simple feature was not part of the app from the beginning.
