When I try calling from GV I hear two dailer tones.
I have been using this app for my business for the last 3 years. My business partners and I updated the app on our iPhones last week and since them have been having serious issues as follows: Calls were not ringing through to the person’s phone who calls were forwarded to…we seemed to fix this by taking off having calls forwarded to our linked Gmail account ‘web’ option as well…we aren’t clear why that worked On my phone under ‘make and receive’ calls in settings my phone was set to ‘use carrier only’ instead of ‘prefer wi-fi and mobile data’, this seemed to stop calls from coming through to my phone, which I only discovered after several missed calls…again, Im not clear why that fixed the problem Items are appearing and disappearing off the settings menu…for example, under settings >> ‘incoming calls’ w the update there were two lists of phone numbers with toggles >> ’my devices’ and then ‘forwarded calls’…forwarded call disappeared completely There is inconsistency between settings on the GV mobile site settings and the phone settings. This morning my biz partner switched our business calls to me and they kept ringing through to both of us despite on both of our phones it appearing that the calls were supposed to go to me. When I logged into GV in the browser it showed both of our numbers toggled on There isn’t any customer support (fine, it’s a free product, I get it) but when I posted in the ‘help’ section on Google to look for solutions the only response I got was ‘you shouldn’t be using this for business’. Researching other for pay business phone options now as this is unfortunately not going to work for our business w all these bugs. Posting here in the hopes the developers will read this and fix the bugs.
this app is very flaky. just doesn’t seem up to a google level application. the notifications is probably the most frustrating part. you get notifications and it takes several attempts to get the app to recognize that you’ve read the message before it goes away. No share from the share picture dialog (hangouts only). Several odd rendering bugs regularly pop up.
There is a major glitch I can’t receive texts or send them. Please fix!!!!
Google Voice is amazing. I have a Tracfone with limited texts, and my friends don't want to switch to something better than SMS messaging. The app great but I wish I could change the notification sound.
Voice is not working as well as it used to. For one it doesn’t sync well in the Chrome app with my contacts list. When I get messages or calls, instead of seeing the name from my contact list, it just shows the phone number. And since the change happened, using voice requires too many steps. Not to mention that when I call people, it will sometimes show an unrecognizable number.
Wahoo!! Finally they gave us the feature I have been hoping for since google came out with this app.... Internet / data calling straight from the app. Now just a few minor tweaks to receive v-cards and multiple pics / video and it will be perfect 😀😀
This app would be awesome if it just had a follow up reminder button. Thus the reason for the 4 stars. I use this app every day and find myself wishing it had a follow up button for calls,voicemails, and text. Sh** add a scheduling function for timed text message and your on to something new. Come on Google write some CODE and add this for us. 🤯🤓🛠📲🤩
Honestly this app is terrible. It should not be that easy for scammers to steal your personal phone number through GoogleVoice. I'm embarrassed for Google that their software is able to be used for scams and number taking. Horrible.
This app has a multitude of issues; the first being that when attempting to dial any number the app simply does nothing. It’s fairly useless if one can’t even make a phone call. The next major problem is that if a MMS attachment doesn’t go through it gets permanently stuck in the message thread. The failed attachment will show “sending” forever. There’s no way to cancel or delete it which essentially cripples the app, making it become even more useless. You would think the bright minds that work for the big G would’ve tested such things. Perhaps they outsourced the project to a bunch of amateurs and this is the end result of sloppy cut-rate work.
Lately my phone app has been crashing... Not allowing me to send text messages for some reason my text box is not appearing on a regular... Please help...
It’s fine but it may need an update for iOS 12. It will not show any incoming calls on my iPhone 8. I’ve tried turning on all notifications but it still won’t work. It’s also not recording calls. There’s been over 2 updates and they still won’t fix it. One star till you fix this google.
What’s up with not being able to add contacts? It just bugs out on me and doesn’t do anything.
Whenever I get a call, I could pick it up but i wouldn't be able to hear the caller on the other line but I could call customers and it would work. It’s hard to get in touch with someone who could assist you at google.
Playback support for audio and video MMS attachments. WRONG!!!
Why does it dial any number other than what I want it to dial??? That’s my only complaint. It worked so well with my android.
Google voice user since the beginning and although the app functions as it was intended for the most part, it's regrettably become an invaluable tool for scammers and scammers. Google, please do something about this very annoying trend.
Why wasn’t it made compatible for iPhone SE? There are those that can’t keep buying newer phones.
Google Voice still isn't in in the list of sharing options. What's the problem, Google?
There used to be an option to press 1 to accept calls and in the new version it’s discontinued so Callers are screened; having to say their names instead (which is annoying). Please include the Press 1 Call Option in the next version.
