Review from A Google User
Great App, But Need Forwarder To First off, this is a great way to save a ton of money. However, the pay version of this app is really useless without the GrooVe Forwarder (for an additional cost). GrooVe Forwarder can solve the issues with Google Voice Forwarding messing up GrooVe IP connections (like calls turning off data such that GrooVe IP doesn't connect). This functionality really should be included in the GrooVe IP app and cost and not be an additional app (at additional cost).
I swear at one time this service offered free domestic calls. Why wouldn't someone just use hangouts and make free calls over this.
This app has never worked for more than 2 minutes. I reinstalled and it worked for 3 minutes. Now it allowes number to be dialed....goes to the screen that it says the number is ringing.........it is not ringing
All been working ok till my phone updated to android 7. It's a Samsung galaxy S7. After macking or receiving calls. Any sound from the phone is very low. And the sound controls are ineffective. I have to restart the phone, to get volume control back.
Bought Pro version and they cut me off and took all my remaining credits since I didn't use it enough.
I was an early supporter in this app and paid $5for pro, now this nonsense with credits. Bulshit I'll find another app
When I purchased the paid version a couple of years ago, the developer promised free calls & free text (the free text never happened back then). Now with the paid version, they give the users only 16 free credits a month, which is about 10 minutes of outgoing calls or 45 text messages. Then Groove IP will reclaim the number if it's inactive for some time. I am running the Hangouts app with my Google Voice phone numbers on my cellphones now for free. The Hangouts app has many more features than Groove IP and it's free. It handles several of my Google Voice #'s at once and switching between the numbers is so easy. I can also run my Google Voice numbers on the OBi100/110/200/202 with my DECT 6.0 phones at home. I run this app only because I already paid for it but I don't use it for calls & texting...
If you are having trouble with an update please try a clean install. Uninstall app, restart device, then download and install app again.
