This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Google Voice gives you a free 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 while on the go or at home.
You’re in control
Forward calls, text messages, and voicemail to any of your devices, and get spam filtered automatically. Block numbers you don’t want to hear from.
Backed up and searchable
Calls, text messages, and voicemails are stored and backed up to make it easy for you to search your history.
Chat in groups, with photos
Send group texts and share photos instantly.
Your voicemail, transcribed
Google Voice provides free voicemail transcriptions that you can read in the app or have sent to your email.
Cheap international calling
Make international calls at competitive rates without using your mobile data.
Keep in mind:
• Google Voice is currently only available in the US
• All calls made using Google Voice for iPhone use the standard minutes from your cell phone plan
• Calls are placed through a US-based Google Voice access number, which may incur costs (e.g. when traveling internationally)
What's New in Version 2.10
- Google contacts are now displayed in search results
- Bug fixes and performance improvements
Trashes messages / order
Was hopeful the latest would address the issues, look like no improvement, in fact now it locks up and the app has to be closed.
Let’s get the bugs out before new features?
The app fails to notify you if you have a new message about 50 % of the time.
No sound, nothing.
You have to constantly refresh the app to see if anybody’s responded to you. I’ve tried closing the app and also resetting the phone none of which help.
If you try to go back and follow your text message conversations they are out of order you can’t tell what reply because with what incoming text message you had.
Appears that the app is cashing your responses as you will see those responses pop up randomly and your text stream.
Makes it totally unusable for documentation or even a quick review of what’s been said.
App crashes on a regular basis, often several times a day.
I’ve been a Google Voice user for years it’s a great application when it works.
Can't wait for apple to approve the new version. Will update review the review when they do.
Window disappears almost every time you open it. Can't log out due to the settings window crashing. Do not download.
Closing off after About 30 seconds
I have been using Google Voice app for well over five years. Couple of versions ago it started shutting itself off after being open about 30 seconds. I am now using it on an iPhone sex with iOS 11.1.2. It is doing it again. When I am in the texting portion of the app, after the app is been open about 30 seconds it just closes. Makes usability very impaired.
If this bug is repaired, the app gets five stars
Made it harder to delete messages
They made it harder to delete messages. You no longer can push and hold on a conversation to get a delete button. You can only do that to "archive" it. To delete it, you now have to go into the conversation, tap the "..." button and then tap the "Delete" button...and then hit yes on the confirmation button. This is way too many steps just to delete some messages. It seriously slows down the work flow of the app. Fix that and my rating goes much higher.
