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)

Scrabblelover77 on 5/22/2018
The original Apple is great and I'm never going to update my iPhone past iOS 10 has hate the new app on my iPad. change for change sake is ridiculous.
Waste of time
Cros5e on 5/21/2018
I could never sing in. Waste of time.
I use this for work on 5/21/2018
I’ve been using this app for several years. Lately the app has been crashing. Which makes it impossible for me to conduct my business as necessary. This issue needs to be fixed as soon as possible
Intl’ call rate is ridiculous
Foodstuffers on 5/21/2018
Given the plethora of platforms for calls and video chat, I don’t understand any minute rate for international calls keeps going up!
A headache/crashing constantly
Timmy two time on 5/21/2018
This app does nothing special than any other calendar app and constantly crashes freezes. You will not go one day with this app not freezing or LONG pauses.
Nice App
Ishtiak87 on 5/20/2018
I really enjoy using this app. I only have one request which is an option for clear the recently dialed suggestions. Please developers, do something about this option. Thanks
Doesn’t work
Ddddddddddfdddd on 5/20/2018
Can’t get passed the verification screen to verify your phone number, every time I try to put a number in. It sends the code I get it put it in, and then it works, but then it starts over again I tried to verify my number for than 10x it still won’t work it’s trash.
Top up
alpha1com on 5/20/2018
Please put in the ability to add funds from the app!!!
It’s like having a second free phone number
Sammysam518 on 5/19/2018
Awesome app and very convenient, it’s like having a second phone number. Incredibly useful and times you don’t want to talk or text with your real number. Or when you’re connected to Wi-Fi and your signal is low. One of my essential apps.
Not fair
Manny82LA on 5/19/2018
It’s really redículous at this time the rates for a phone to Guatemala it’s really expensive compare to others country really far away. It’s not fair
No me da número para Texas
maflores18 on 5/19/2018
No me da número para Seagoville, TX
File support
Salty1913 on 5/18/2018
I use google voice for business. It crashes often and doesn’t support all files. iPhone users can’t share me contacts or videos. It doesn’t support all files which is a bummer. If they fix that then the ratings may go up. That’s if they care about reviews.
ManiSib on 5/17/2018
Works great
Ok but
Lyodlhjcnvmlhlykd on 5/17/2018
It’s a really helpful app except every time I get a txt on there it sends me a email and it’s really annoying
Love the app, love the service
Maxewlled on 5/15/2018
In a time when moving carriers, and taking your phone number with costs money... Google voice lets you always take your number with. Forward your number on Google voice to whatever number you like! Your always in contact and people never need to update your number. The app is solid and easy to use, works with web and other Google apps. Simple and easy to use. Had this number for the last three jobs two of which provided me a phone. No one needed to learn new numbers.
Wish it was better
EmmyCristine on 5/15/2018
Laggy and slow with limited capabilities. I expect better from google
There’s no voice like google voice lol
Dolly Queso on 5/15/2018
Google voice is awesome been using it for years with the same number no problems. Best phone number app out if you ask me.
Doesn’t ring to phone
HSanders85 on 5/15/2018
If I could give it a - star I would. I see that everyone is having the same issue of GV not ringing to the cell phone! That is kind of the main reason for having this app is so I don’t miss other calls for business (without give my personal number out). I’m so disappointed because apparently you have to have the GV app AND the “hangout” app downloaded for it to ring to your phone. This is so stupid to have to take up more space for one simple function!!! You really should fix this before more people leave this app in the dust.
It’s ok
nickname 28272 on 5/15/2018
It’s convenient. But wish you could send and receive video
Used successfully for years
pudchuck on 5/15/2018
I love this service. I have used it for many years without a problem.
Text forwarding doesnt work anymore
jamain94 on 5/14/2018
Use to be able to get text forwarded to cell but now it doesnt work even if my number is verified. Im disappointed that I am now being forced to download this app.
TORNADO WARNING missed call and voicemail
julesagogo on 5/14/2018
This used to be such a great app but in the past couple of months I have missed about 50% of my calls and most of my voicemails. How is Google supposed to keep tabs on me when the product doesn’t even work?
Long time user
FoundCat1 on 5/14/2018
I have used Google Voice for many years. I love the convenience of being able to have numbers with multiple area codes. This helps people to recognize me as a local rather than a robo-call. I also like the low international rates. The recent updates have improved my user experience. I still have trouble with it occasionally dropping the box to enter a reply message on a text chain. Fix that bug and its a five star rating!
Please so we can give u guys 5 stars
Aye8695 on 5/14/2018
I was so excited and I downloaded this on my IPAD and when the option comes up to manage account and I choose my account it goes to accept the terms and conditions and when I accept it, it goes back to manage account. I want it to be on the iPad plz I beg you and I LOVE google inc I have tried nearly all of ur apps and then delete it if it was useless for ME not to the world so plz add it and when it’s added plz tell to me as a reply. Thx ,Vanessa
Worse app ever!!!
amandakarr on 5/14/2018
I have been trying to call the google voice number they provide to set up voicemail and it has been busy for 3 days!!!!! What is the point of this app?!
Constantly freezes iPhone x in 2018
Mscocomac on 5/13/2018
I use GV for a secondary business number, using it probably 10x per month max. Each time I use it on my iPhone x since October 2017 it freezes my phone staying on the Google voice startup screen. This is such a problem, sometimes I am able to reboot, sometimes my phone just blacks out for 1hr+ This is very unsatisfactory. I will have to find an alternative, because I can not be without the use of my device for that length of time due to GV freezing.
Needs improvement
smeyers05 on 5/13/2018
When people share iPhone contacts with my google voice number I can’t receive them. Says it’s not supported. Also it doesn’t let me share videos. Being in real estate these are essential for my business. Very frustrating that I can’t use these features.
Doesn’t not stay logged in security risk
zmyr88 on 5/12/2018
The app does not stay logged in despite it obviously is since your able to still get text messages and sometimes even reply through the swipe down. Is this the Apple push service. But when you go in you have to re login and it turns off text forwarding when you do. 0 stars. Android version works fine
Not able to download app fo 2 months
magiondras on 5/12/2018
I have an iphone 8 with ios 11.2.6 and have not been able to even download the google voice app for the past few months. I was a happy user until then, what is going on??
Love it
Mrtejano on 5/11/2018
But it’s still missing many features that would be awesome. Like making this app similar to their messenger app so we can send stickers, voice clips and video clips too. Would also be awesome if it let us choose bubble colors.
Just okay
Scient5000 on 5/11/2018
- Need improvements to the dialer....the current design is dull and less intuitive... - Need deeper and seamless integration with the Contacts list to allow for automatic use of Hangouts/Google Voice, for international calls (like in Android) - Need better ring tone just doesn't work... - Need a conference call feature... - Need full blown sms features- message forwarding, international sms support, sharing Apple passes etc....

Pippy_shortsockz on 5/9/2018
So annoyed. Google voice does not work on well on my iPhone. When I make outbound calls my personal number still shows. A coworker has more options in settings through their Samsung. Wish I could delete forever, but of course that’s impossible too.
Opening prob
rajarshi19 on 5/9/2018
The app is not responsive
Doesn’t work
maxhodges on 5/7/2018
Can’t set it up. Never received the sms code. I’m in Japan, maybe it doesn’t work with my phone here but the engineers should let me know rather than waste my time trying to set it up only.
Broken UI - can’t process taps for dialing
jd2020 on 5/7/2018
They’re not even trying. Despite a number of updates this app is terrible. Now it can’t even reliably detect tapping on the digits to dial a phone number. As I tap out a seven digit phone number it registers only about five of the digits. Occasionally the touchpad disappears completely. This atrocity is an embarrassment to Google.
Block people from reading your text
penehebsmbee on 5/7/2018
I want people to not read my text people are reading my text there hacking into my Account
Can’t play voice mail via Bluetooth
Uninstall now on 5/6/2018
After all these years, it still can’t play voice mail via Bluetooth device without hiccups. What is Google really good at?
Please Improve Usability
fugly_mofo on 5/6/2018
Here’s a task for the devs of this app: try sending a text message from scratch to a telephone number (not from Contacts). Not so easy. It should be a fundamentally functional feature of the app. Instead you have to copy and paste the number and keep playing with the format (xxx)xxx-xxxx until Google Voice app “likes it” and then maybe it will let you send the sms. Not very useful!
Text a video
Karin 03 on 5/6/2018
I am new w the app I tried to send videos but it doesn’t even show the videos I haven on my phone. I guess that’s not an option 😩
Loved this before all the pricing of intl calling
quits all the time on 5/4/2018
Used to really enjoy the international abilities of the app and it really cheap rates for calling. Now that it’s over and never communicated I’m a disappointed user.
Crashes regularly, many bugs
LostInSicilia on 5/4/2018
I have been using this app for 1.5 years because I love the concept of a free way to text message and receive calls, but the app itself is the worst app on my phone. It crashes several times a week. When replying from the lock screen, it often does not actually send the message but doesn’t let you know it failed. I cannot send or receive video messages. A new message notification may pop up, but then when opening the app it may be super delayed in appearing. I regularly click on one text message and it opens a different one. 90% of the time if someone calls me, we can’t hear each other and I have to hang up and call them through a different app. I have to forward my calls instead, which works well. I have to use Google Hangouts to make free calls, because using the app either doesn’t work or uses my cell line that costs money. There are a couple of pictures I tried to send once and failed, but the app still shows them as pending months later and there is no way to delete them without deleting the whole I have to scroll through them every time to see the latest message. Google obviously does not care to invest hardly any money or time in improving Google Voice. If I knew of a reputable and more reliable free phone and text service, I would use it instead.
Not supporting pictures
TashiiLexx on 5/4/2018
I use this app for business purposes to communicate with my clients. First it was ok but it constantly crashes now and isn’t sending nor receiving pictures. Currently looking for a new app
Can’t Sign up
Mr_Bellson on 5/3/2018
I have been trying to sign up on my PC but it’s showing “Could not create Google Voice account” So tried it on my phone and it’s not working too. Please try and fix this problem. Thanks
Google voice
Andykusaf on 5/2/2018
Great clear conversations done with google voice
Bad speaker handling
Helgi Hundingsbane on 5/2/2018
Really terrible speaker and audio handling. Usually doesn’t detect that you’re using a Bluetooth device for audio. Not sure what the difference between “iPhone” and “iPhone Speaker” is. Stupid useless labels. Randomly switches between those two settings.
Fix it
Nfstjviopjy on 5/2/2018
Ever since I updated, picture messages no longer work. Video messages have never worked. Very disappointed
Akacute on 5/1/2018
How can delete this number or change it. I have a stalker!
Already acting up
PradaPrincess8 on 5/1/2018
So I just downloaded this app and I’m trying to set up a voicemail and it keeps saying the subscriber isn’t available. That’s wack
Generic update gets generic review
quinoje on 5/1/2018
Generic update gets generic review. Can't be bothered to tell me what changed? I can't be bothered to give real feedback. Stop with the "updates and improvements" BS and tell us what you fixed. The people who actually care about an update want to know more.
This App is 5 star
Ak06Ad83 on 4/29/2018
Very feasible App.
