GV Connect - Call & SMS for Google Voice

By Andreas Amann

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


GV Connect is the most feature-complete Google Voice application available for your iPhone or iPad — text, call, and interact with your existing GV accounts using a beautiful and streamlined interface that gives you full control over your account settings:

• Place calls using your Google Voice number rather than your mobile number - enter number directly, select a contact from your device's contacts, or call back any number in your history. The application supports direct call (iPhone only), callback, and offline calling (see application website for a description of these calling modes)
• Send and receive text messages (SMS) from your Google Voice number - including support for long SMS, sending to multiple recipients at once, and support for non-English messages. Supports in-line replies with an iMessage-like interface
• Automatically check for new SMS and voicemails - even when the application is in the background
• Listen to voicemails and recorded conversations right on your device (allowing you to pause, rewind, or fast forward to any point within the message) - voicemails will show the transcription of the message when available
• Un/-archive messages, mark them as un-/read or starred, attach notes to conversations, block/unblock senders, or delete conversations
• Easily search in your history by contact, message, or note text - supports continuing searches online for messages that have not yet been cached locally
• Messages are stored on your device for offline access
• Quickly change various Google Voice account settings (call forwarding, do-not-disturb — including the option to have DND automatically expire at a specified time, message notifications, …)
• Add, verify, and remove forwarding phone numbers
• Quick Settings allow saving and restoring complete account settings (DND, forwarding, …) for easy switching between different profiles
• Support for automatic selection of Quick Settings based on current location (available as In-App Purchase)
• Direct access to your device's contacts without needing to synchronize them with Google
• Quick access to favorite phone numbers for calls and SMS
• Universal application which runs optimized on iPhone (including iPhone 6/6 Plus), iPod Touch, and iPad (including split-screen multi-tasking on supported devices running iOS 9 or later)
• Optional application passcode lock (with TouchID option on supported devices)
• Supports gesture navigation when typing text for easier placement of the cursor: swipe left/right with one or two fingers to move the caret position backwards/forward by character or word. Swipe left/right with three fingers to go to the beginning/end of the existing text
• Supports TextExpander touch snippet expansion including support for fill-in snippets

NOTE: An existing Google Voice account with a GV phone number is required to use this application - signup for new Google Voice accounts is currently limited to residents of the US. Please note that GV Connect is NOT a VoIP application and will not allow making or receiving calls from an iPad/iPod Touch without a separate VoIP application.

GV Connect stores your account password securely in your device's Keychain for faster login when launching the application. All communication is done exclusively via secure connections (SSL) to the Google Voice servers owned and operated by Google and no contact information (other than the contact's phone number which is required to place a call or send a message) is sent to Google or any other party. All operations are fully synchronized with your Google Voice account.

Please read the FAQ section on the application website if you encounter any issues or use the feedback email link in its about screen to ask for support.

What's New in Version 2.4.1

• Added support for 3D Touch QuickActions on supported devices (press firmly on the app icon to jump directly to a specific action)
• When running on iOS 9 or later, increase the refresh interval while the application is open from one to five minutes when low power mode is enabled
• Resolve an issue where the dialog to enter the 2-Factor Authentication Code was dismissed when entering background (e.g., switching to a different application to retrieve the code) which would prevent completing the login process for accounts with 2-Factor Authentication enabled
• Fix issues with the "Send" button not always correctly being en-/disabled when creating a new SMS
• Various stability improvements

PLEASE NOTE: if the application crashes immediately after starting please delete and reinstall it from the AppStore - there seems to be a migration issue affecting some users.

By the way, AppStore reviews are very helpful to us - reviews get reset with every update. If you like GV Connect, we would greatly appreciate if you could take a few minutes and leave a nice review. Thanks for using GV Connect!

Best Google Voice App

I've used GV mobile + for a few years and decided to try GV connect. I'm very glad I did. I like the interface better and it has more features. I'm very happy.

I like that this app integrates with launch center pro. I can copy a phone number from a source, slide down Notification Center and press a Gv connect button that copies the phone number from my clipboard and automatically initiates the call for me. This makes using Gv number on iPhone much easier.

I also love the location settings. When I'm at work, this app turns on call forwarding to my work phone. When I leave work, my work phone won't ring anymore. Same thing for my home phone. It works pretty flawlessly.

Direct dial does work for me. I also have enabled hangouts. Someone else complained it wasn't working for them.

Hasn't updated in over a month

The app worked OK for a while.. Sporadically updating whenever it felt like; it most of the time not getting updates for days. Now we are moving into multiple weeks without the app updating. Have to leave a browser in Safari open to google voice to be able to check messages. This app is a waste of time and money with no active or involved development at all for much too long to even be relevant anymore. Do not buy and do not use until Devs decide to respect investors and make the app work instead of being the quick cash out and forget they obviously view it as.

Great google voice control center

For a while, I have been using this app primarily for the location-based settings so that when I leave home Google voice stops ringing my home phone number. I've just recently started using it again as my primary Google voice app. Notifications are working really well now, and you can use call back or direct call with no problem.
