Google Voice gives you a 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 in the office, at home, or on the go.

NOTE: Google Voice only works for personal Google Accounts in the US and G Suite accounts in select markets. Text messaging is not supported in all markets.

You’re in control
Get spam filtered automatically and block numbers you don’t want to hear from. Manage your time with personalized settings for forwarding calls, text messages, and voicemail.

Backed up and searchable
Calls, text messages, and voicemails are stored and backed up to make it easy for you to search your history.

Manage messages across devices
Send and receive individual and group SMS messages from all your devices

Your voicemail, transcribed
Google Voice provides advanced voicemail transcriptions that you can read in the app and/or have sent to your email.

Save on international calling
Make international calls at competitive rates without paying extra for international minutes with your mobile carrier

Keep in mind:
• Google Voice is currently only available in the US. Google Voice for G Suite users is in Early Adopter Program and available in select countries. Check with your administrator for access.
• Calls made using Google Voice for iPhone can be placed through a Google Voice access number. All access number based calls use the standard minutes from your cell phone plan and may incur costs (e.g. when traveling internationally).

My voicemail just went up and left? Dudes cmon
voice legacy switching app easy access
OliviaBeautifulBoy😱 on 8/19/2018
I love this GV app even the new app, i am giving 5 star because they really sincere in fixing issues and its a lot. As big as Google, i know i know we all notice that they're not really as prompt as expected in fixing some issues. PLS EITHER MAKE THE APP MORE EASIER AND FRIENDLIER TO CELPHONE USER THAT DONT USE TABLETS, Computers and the like into accessing the desktop or legacy interface within the app itself or why not add up those options to the new app? E.g. accessing voicemail full setting. Lastly, before i can scroll down all my text messages, calls, back million years ago. now what happen?. Thanks, Google Voice lover
Don’t upgrade
maniasea on 8/19/2018
Lost all voicemails that were saved .... including my sister final voicemail before her death
Voicemail speakerphone?
Keloutwest on 8/18/2018
Anyone try to listen to voicemail recently? It defaults to speakerphone and takes 5 tries to switch to “iPhone” (the non “speaker” option). Horrid quality control process for this app.
Would be great if the contacts in google would be be in their own tab
Dissatisfied user 8897 on 8/18/2018
***UPDATE 2*** It would appear that only 60 contacts from google show up in the contacts tab. The rest CAN be searched, but what’s the point of having a contacts tab if you’re not going to display all the contacts? PLEASE FIX! ***UPDATE*** Wow I’m impressed! I’m not sure if my review made a difference or not, but the app has been updated (same day) and now the contacts tab properly syncs with google voice! Thank you so much!! ***ORIGINAL REVIEW*** Please make the separate contacts tab update from google contacts, not phone contacts. I like to separate my google contacts and my phone contacts, but it’s a hassle as of now. If there was a separate contacts tab THAT ACTUALLY WORKED it would be absolutely great. Adding contacts through google voice adds them to the phone address book- WHY?? This defeats the whole purpose of google voice, I don’t want to mix phone contacts with google contacts!
The $Kev$ on 8/18/2018
Thanks for fixing the bug
Doesn’t forward text messages
ttboy60 on 8/18/2018
Use to be 5*. Had to drop it to below average for the reason it doesn’t forward texts and the default alert sound is irreverent like a leaf falling on the ground. No one at google is acknowledging this issue. Probably cuz it’s free and who cares. Update: still not getting texts forwarded to my linked mobile phone. I’m being forced to give out my mobile number. Seems ever since hangouts came on the scene. What ever happened to gv?
Updates are making use more difficult
jamman9000 on 8/18/2018
I was really happy to see GV getting some love again with actual work being done on it... But soon into the changes I noticed the first downgrade in functionality. Before, I was able to use the dial pad to search my contacts' by name using the letters associated with the numbers AND could just search by the phone number itself, but it changed. Instead, searching by number became the default and to switch to searching by alphabet I had to tap a button that brought up the keyboard. I don't understand, the first way had the best of both worlds in one... is it because we don't associate letters with dial pad numbers as much anymore? Then this new update came out (mid-August 2018) that got rid of the alphabet search function entirely! I have to go to the contacts tab and search for my contact and go through so much more now to just call someone. I was annoyed before, but now it's very frustrating! Not having much of a problem otherwise... Please improve the dial pad contact search! Bring back the all-in-one method!
Absolutely detest this update version!!!
Could be happier with the app on 8/18/2018
In addition to the complaints already highlighted by other reviewers — after making the update (the only update that was made) on both my iPhone & iPad, keyboard functions on both devices have been acting wildly screwy across ALL circumstances requiring typing, not just while using the Google Voice app... WTF‽‽‽
Google Voice
boringboron on 8/18/2018
This is a good app because it gives me another phone number and I can call or text people with it! The only thing I don’t like is how the contact name doesn’t show up in my notifications, so I don’t know who texted me until I open the app。
Bug Infested
JohnnyEnergy on 8/18/2018
It has become so difficult to use the app. Very very slow, time stamp not accurate, messages using speech to txt never send the first time, locks up constantly. Much more attention needs to be placed on fixes or everyone will bail.
Update is broken
Wellwisher999 on 8/18/2018
Latest update is broken. Cannot make calls anymore. Cannot select a google voice number
ansX64 on 8/18/2018
I like the new app look and feel. Improved usefulness. Now just needs VOIP Support and an iOS widget.
Message loading issue fixed
KMKazie on 8/18/2018
Ver.18.33 addresses the issue in loading past messages.
Ruined my archived messages and voicemails!
ChanellyGrace on 8/18/2018
So, I use the app quite a bit. I’ve been a Google Voice member user over 10 years. I’ve had friends and relatives pass away during that time and archived some of their messages and voicemails so that I can go back and see or hear them whenever I miss those people. Well, this newest update ruins the Archive folder. It doesn’t allow me to pull anything older than about a year, and I hate it. Please fix this immediately. Thank you.
Deleting messages is a hassle
Hchavarria on 8/18/2018
My biggest problem with this app is that there’s no easy way to bulk delete messages. I don’t want to archive I want to delete. Why can’t you just place a delete button next to the archive button?
Been using google voice for 8+years
msassty on 8/18/2018
I dislike the fact during calls the recording (Say This Call Is Now Being Recorded) 😩 that function is off in my settings. My real number shows up sometimes when I call ppl. Sometimes I don’t get calls but I get a email that I missed a call. App crashes alot.
Works great
DjR0R on 8/18/2018
Works great
Goole are you listening?
Slavakulikoff on 8/17/2018
18.33 broke app again. Random ( but well expected crushes), freezing and black screens are back. Google, are you listening? If so, please attempt to fix it.
Can’t bulk delete texts, voicemail, or call history
Timbo907 on 8/17/2018
Can’t bulk delete texts messages, voicemail, or call history.
New update fixes many bugs
Knapsacker on 8/17/2018
The app is mostly great, but AVOID VERSION 18.27, it crashes constantly. Why won't google fix this terrible crashing? Every other launch, it crashes. Previous version never, ever, crashed for me. The recent update fixed the crashing, which is welcome. But the new version does not show all messages with another person, just arbitrarily cuts out at some number of messages Why? Desktop version shows full history of messages. And now, the app has been updated, and again shows the full scrolling history of messages with another number.
Favorites gone ?
ashwinks on 8/16/2018
Nice look and feel - but would say a D grade on functionality. The favorites feature was already barebones- with “suggestions” having to suffice as “favorites”. But now, it’s completely gone!?! Like many others, I use this while driving and I want to be able to call someone with just a tap, rather than search. Why not have a tab with 3x3 (say) tiles for your top 9 favorites, and set another tab for “suggestions” or leave it incorporated with “contacts” ? Please (re)design a functionality for favorites, pretty please!!
No incoming calls!
ferivii on 8/16/2018
There are no notification for incoming calls, every incoming calls are becoming miss call.
Love the fact that you’ve updated g-voice and the app…
Liberty53k on 8/16/2018
Hate the fact that there is no faves (speed dial) & that your dumbing it down so much... Please bring back the notes & also the ability to star a message!
Was awesome
kay904 on 8/16/2018
I loved this app but now it won’t even open. I really need this app so if someone could please fix I would greatly appreciate it.
It’s an okay app
analicarina128 on 8/16/2018
This app is helpful, but the glitches defeat the purpose. I don’t receive texts, I can’t answer calls, and I don’t receive the notifications period. Please fix these issues.
Failed to update properly
Michelle NYC on 8/16/2018
Edited — WOW! No idea if my app updated due to my earlier review or what but now I can click on a bunch of voicemails and delete!! Still need to be able to delete text messages in bulk.... Also, very happy to see the “contacts” tab in view now. Thanks!! ****** Still unable to delete more than one voicemail/ text at a time. Would love to see ability to check individual line items off and have the option to “delete” the entire list rather than needing to go into each message to manually deleted. Additionally, with latest update, my overall look of app has updated successfully but I do not see the new contacts tab. '
No contacts tab
Skadoo323 on 8/15/2018
No contacts tab as stated there is based on the update notes. Guess someone in the QA team was asleep.
Can't make everyone happy, but you've made this guy smile!
LoveInYaMouth on 8/15/2018
Great update! Keep it up! Love google voice and love the app. Thank you!
The google voice solution is great. The app is terrible
Bono kanamp on 8/15/2018
Much improved. However, no contacts tab...
This app is must for International calling.
Šandeep on 8/15/2018
I use it primarily to call my family and friends overseas. It works perfectly; no issues. New look for contacts is good but if there was a favorite section that would have been much better. Thanks.
Deletion is a problem
AAPMD on 8/15/2018
For the life of me, I cannot figure out why deleting texts is so difficult. I’m glad I can tap on a person’s icon to select their block of texts, but who archives these things. I feel like most people want to to delete these, not archive them. Unfortunately it’s not even a choice. They need to give the option to delete the entire series of text from one person, rather than archive them only. Fix that and it’s 5/5 rating.
Upload voicemail greeting
Mosneu on 8/15/2018
Please add an option to upload voicemail greeting Thanks
New Icon! Same confusing UI
Gustavo de Brito on 8/14/2018
I love the great rates of this app, but the UI is really confusing and boring. We need an simple, very simple contacts tab. Currently the contacts are hidden inside the keyboard (!!!). Also the tab Messages comes first, but this is a voice (calls) app, right? Finally, the most important information for heavy users like me is my balance, also hidden. Why don’t include the balance in the top or the app? Well, I am leaving 4 stars because I really like the app functionality, but I hate this very confusing UI.
What redesign?
Mexican White Boy on 8/14/2018
Just updated this morning based on articles I saw of the new Google Voice redesign and the icon updated but the app itself looks the same with no added features!
Scroll Up For More Texts?
OverHereInSanDiego on 8/14/2018
Why is it limited to like a week or less? I need older text messages!! What the heck is this? Are they gone or what? Game freaking changer right now if I can get those.
Touch-tone sound absent!!
Mark@Boston on 8/14/2018
Having keypad sounds is a given in any phone app, but not GV. I wish a developer would post why the touch-tone dialing sound was removed. There is no touch-tone audio feedback when hitting the number keys. It’s very frustrating and causes me to misdial frequently. Please bring back the touch-tone audio dialing. Will this feature ever return??
Not seeing all of the changes
jcjones1978 on 8/14/2018
I just downloaded the latest update, but not seeing the new contacts tab. I have the latest version of iOS 11 so I am not certain why features are missing.
Nice new ux with some bugs
numerosiete on 8/14/2018
Glad they’re paying attention to the service again. I just tried to record a new voicemail greeting and it recorded the audio at half speed and sound quality was terrible. Need a fix
Where is the contacts tab?
AuroraDrag0n on 8/14/2018
I’m not thrilled about the icon change, I liked the blue color, and I thought it was stylish, now it’s puke green :( This new update was supposed to have a contacts tab, but it’s still the same layout, where is it?
FirstAid84 on 8/14/2018
Thank you Google for finally brining this up to date!
Where is the new contacts tab?
mancuj1 on 8/14/2018
This update says it enabled a new “Contacts” tab, yet nothing has changed in the UI. Also, when is VOIP going to be an option for iOS users.
There’s google Duo and voice but still no VOIP
Happy meal 21 on 8/13/2018
Still can't make calls through the app like FaceTime or Skype or Viber, or countless other apps.
New contacts tab?
Highest Supremacy on 8/13/2018
I wonder where’s that contacts tab. My tabs are still the same
Google Voice Rejuvenated
EddyD23 on 8/13/2018
Great app for my business. Love the changes and new features being added. Top notch application for anyone looking for a secondary phone number. Latest update is not displaying all the features listed. Such as the contact tab and calendar 📆 integration. Can anyone give me some feedback if they are experiencing the same thing?
What new look?
TweegyBlink on 8/13/2018
New look? They changed the icon green! OMG what a change it’s amazing. Seriously who are you kidding? This app belongs in a museum.
Add attachments feature malfunction
Nik pen on 8/13/2018
Great improvements!! Love it. Recipients are not receiving the files/pictures when attached from previously existing once/photos folder. Pictures that are taken Google voice app being sent successfully. Plz fix this ASAP. -Nik
Sending pictures is a mess
Kevča on 8/12/2018
Sending pictures is a mess
So far so good.
Kane/Audrey on 8/12/2018
I love having a second number because I’m getting a lot of crank calls. spam and unnecessary phone calls off from my other number. So now I can give out this number and I know exactly who I gave it to. Love it also because it’s free
Beyond HORRIBLE!!!!
G8terGurl on 8/10/2018
My husband had me download this app in case we can’t get ahold of each other. It is absolutely HORRIFIC. I am sitting in the room as my husband and trying to call him, and nothing happens except a message saying the Google Voice subscriber I am calling is not available. My husband is not notified until he gets an email after I try to call, no alert, no ringing....I am beyond frustrated with this app. I am deleting this stupid app quicker than I downloaded it.
