Google Voice gives you a phone number for calling, text messaging, and voicemail. It works on smartphones and computers, and syncs across your devices so you can use the app in the office, at home, or on the go.
NOTE: Google Voice only works for personal Google Accounts in the US and G Suite accounts in select markets. Text messaging is not supported in all markets.

Now when I answer a call that comes in to my google voice number, I pick up, but the caller continues to hear it ring, then it goes to voicemail for the caller. Also, often the window in which I type a text disappears, and I have to reboot the phone to get it to reappear. Very awkward when, in the middle of texting, I have to stop, power off my phone, then wait to power it up again, before I can go back and text. I love google voice for the security it gives me from a bad situation, but the bugs are bad.
I am not able to use the google voice anymore after an update, hope their developers can fix the issue soon!
Missed important voice mail message today. Apparently you have to open the app, maybe after every update in order for it to restart the notifications. Even being signed into YouTube, Hangouts, Gmail, and Google Maps wasn’t enough. I have turned off call forwarding on my iPhone to Google Voice.
Constantly has texts get stuck with “Sending,” app is slowwwwww to load, always says file type not supported, crashes, etc. It’s been years since this app was stable, I may have to explore leaving Google Voice.
I am getting spam calls. Someone took my Google number and is calling people hundreds of times. Now people are claiming they are going to sue me for something I didn’t do. I called Google and they referred me to a community folder online. My Goggle number is a business number and I’m afraid to change the number due to business.
Really don’t expect this from google. Can’t add credit for google voice. Really fed up with customer service, such a pathetic service.
A lot of the time my computer will sound letting me know a call is coming in but my phone won’t ring so I can’t answer the call. Often times the phone doesn’t ring but I’ll get a text or voicemail. Then there are times when I do get connected but the call breaks up and I get dropped. So frustrating. I have to use it because I don’t want to give out my personal cell number. Wish google will fix the problem.
No straightforward way to delete conversations e.g swipe to delete. Either incompetence or Google wants indefinite access to your text history.
Hey google! Can we have a 2nd line option to google voice?? It would be a spectacular move id say.
Is it really that difficult to allow users to delete their call history in a couple of clicks, seriously?? And I mean select All, delete all, not one by one. For being an “app” you must have some real hacks programming this interface.
After the most recent update, every time I am on a call, and receive a notification on my phone the entire google voice app shuts off. The person on the other line can no longer hear me. Nor can I hear them. I use google voice for my business. Please Fix!
Google expired my account and removed my access to a number I was actively using. I’m not sure how my contacts will be able to reach me now so I can not recommend this service to anyone.
I’ve been using Google Voice since almost the beginning and it’s always worked well... until the big update a few months ago. Now it’s been rendered almost useless!!! The main problem on iOS is my calls now disconnect if I either navigate away from the app (e.g. switch to another app), or if the screen goes to sleep after a few minutes on a call. This is such a major bug that I have reverted to using my cell number again. I would not recommend using Google voice until this is fixed.
All these bad reviews not gonna update till I know it's good again that’s y the older one is the best no problem at all
I can not for the life of me figure out to use emojis and gifs when composing a message in from my email, or the app. Can someone explain where to icons are or what I have to do?
I have used this for years as a business line without issue. A couple of months ago calls started going straight to voicemail without ringing the phone. After numerous attempts to fix and following online support group suggestions ( many are having this issue), still no ring! Google voice, please assist your customers!
New app looks as though it turns on when selected and then promptly shuts off. However looks like it opened it in the background, But if I try to select the app (after double clicking on an iPhone) app promptly shuts off. I’ve lost ability to text completely
Messages won’t send, pictures just say sending and then fail. Don’t use this app, there are way better ones out there.
The older version of this app on my iPad works great. I made the mistake of upgrading my phone to the latest version. Now calls drop in the middle of conversation after 1-6 minutes. I wish there was a way to download the older version.
