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)



  • It works, but hard to deal with Spam.

    By Rai L
    Been using since it was Grand Central. Glad to see they finally support SMS but the app is still clunky. I get a lot of spam calls but I can only mark them as spam if I use a desktop browser, I should be able to do this from my phone. Would be nice if they also had a feature for reporting numbers as I am on the do not call list.
  • Latest update broke it!!

    By Ethical Rider
    An iPhone user isn’t receiving my picture texts. An Android user receives my texts broken up into multiple texts and missing the first letter of the first word in each text. This needs to be fixed ASAP!!! This has been happening since Sunday, March 18th!!!
  • You can permanently lose your carrier number

    By Evan1212
    While a great idea in concept, as I was experimenting with the app, I lost the ability to forward to my original number. If you set up more than two accounts, googlevoice will initiate a failsafe that will PERMANENTLY prevent you using your forwarding number. There’s NO warning provided to users about this before setting up the account. Essentially, if you attempt to create more than two accounts, google will prevent you from using your cell number - EVER AGAIN. Absolutely ridiculous.
  • Great service, terrible app

    By neobobkrause
    I’ve come to believe that the app is bad on purpose. They ought to open up a solid API that would allow a third party to write a real app. This one is crap.
  • No longer works since February

    IPhone 7+ iOS 11 I used it since you need a invite when it first came out. Going to uninstall it
  • Poor control

    By keyboardsfan
    Google is usually so easy to use, across other platforms. However, this is a ridiculously difficult app to use. It takes four individual steps just to delete a call or message! You should simply be able to swipe, left or right, to get rid of it. What is google trying to do? Prevent you from getting rid of your clutter?
  • Pictures do not actually send over to the recipient!

    By Trolik
    Pictures do not actually send over to the recipient! Even though pictures show as sent they do not actually go through.
  • More user friendly and more options

    By Crfprincess
    I use GV for work because I don't need my main number given out. It would be nice to be able to delete messages or numbers without having to archive. It would also be helpful to be able to add a contact within the app rather than logging on to computer. I also agree with another user that it would be nice for a distinctive tone. Without being able to save numbers within the app, if it's a number I don't recognize.....I won't answer. Which is not good for business.
  • Don't update if running 10.0

    By NicksastKendie
    Installed latest update running iOS 10.0 now it crashes on startup. SAME ISSUE WITH CHROME!!!!
  • Not receiving phone calls

    By Mz. Trina Ace Marie
    I’m not receiving calls. I don’t understand. There are people who I don’t want to have my number and next thing I know I’m missing all these calls. What’s going on?
