Review from A Google User
ALERT DOESN'T WORK update - as of 1/247/2013 - updated one more time, and it's back to alerts not working again. this is a constant hit or miss it seems.... please get me back to the last update!!!! then i'll try to remember not to update any more. *sigh* update: updated since, and works flawlessly! great job! incredible2... it used to work fine until an update a few months ago, and since then i don't get any alerts when i receive a text or a voicemail. the only way to check is to open the app and then refresh it manually. dude, it's been months. pls fix?!?!!!
I've had my Google Voice number for over 7 years. So it was nice to see the update with MMS support and new interface. Reason I dropped 2 starts is because several months ago the notification light option was removed. As small as this may seem, I realize now how often I used it. And the fact that it's been so long and still not fixed is borderline pathetic. Once this is fixed it'll get 5 stars.
Been using Voice for 5+ years and I love it! My only suggestion would to be to make it even MORE personalized, set up your own signature or change the chat color bubbles for different conversations/contacts! Works great and I'm glad to be able to use it :)
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
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!!!
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.
Was a great app, but the last overhaul update cause all automatic sync to stop. I now have to manually sync both text and VM to see new messages.
