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, trash 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 2.5

• Add support for conversations and calls in Spam and Trash (including marking them as "not Spam" and recovering from Trash)
• New user interface for filtering message lists by call/message type (drop down instead of segmented control at the top of the message lists) in order to make room for the two newly supported types
• Add new setting to control behavior of message deletion (delete immediately or move to Trash) - the interface now clearly lists either "Delete" or "Trash" to make things as clear as possible
• Various stability improvements based on user submitted reports

By the way, App Store reviews are very helpful – 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!

Customer Reviews

Feature-rich GV app

This app continues to impress me. My previous review holds true even more so with the latest update.
I'll start off with the lowlights. It's not the prettiest GV app. I give that to GV Mobile+. But if you look past that and evaluate an app based functionality, GV Connect is hard-to-beat.

I've been using Google Voice for years. I find it incredibly useful to separate my work communication from my personal ones. My go-to app used to be the only other real competitor (GV Mobile+). I did enjoy using GVM+. But when I started to experience push issues among other things. I decided to give GV Connect a try. Being a Universal app is also a plus as I do use GV on my iPad (especially useful to discreetly text while in a business meeting).

If you are a casual user and want good aesthetics, I'd use the other app. But, as a power user who craves the best in functionality, this is the app of choice for me.

Might be the perfect app

This is truly one of the all-time best apps in the entire App Store! This app is just about EVERYTHING you could ever dream of in a Google Voice client, including top-notch customer support from the developer. It's highly unlikely that even Google themselves would care enough to make such a thoughtfully-crafted and fully-featured app as this one! Kudos to the developer of this app for showing the entire world how an app should be created, developed, maintained, improved, and supported!! :) Thank you! :)

Best Google Voice App!!!

love the improvements in new version 2.5 with ability to get into different folders including spam and trash. really nice.

but a couple old spam calls are showing up in trash. a little mix up? well those two calls are really old calls from 2014. probably time to go into GV on the computer and empty out the spam and trash folders. lol
