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).
Recent changes made it so that when you attempt to return a voicemail, it refuses to dial the number unless you do so through a Google Voice number. No way to place the call normally.

In the past, you can setup Google Voice (GVoice) to receive call ONLY for your GVoice number, so you essentially can have TWO phone number. Example: 1). Your carrier (T-Mobile, AT&T, etc.) number is (626) 111-1111 2). Your GVoice number is (626) 222-2222 3). You linked the carrier number to GVoice 4). If someone call your carrier number (626-111-1111), it will bypass GVoice, just like normal phone. Voicemail are left in your Phone app (not Gvoice). 5). If someone call your GVoice number (626-222-2222), it will bypass your carrier. Voicemail are left in GVoice, not your Phone app. NOW, the above is broken: 1). Calls to your carrier number will ALWAYS get forwarded to your GVoice, including voicemail. You no longer can do number 4 above. 2). If someone call your GVoice number, the phone rings, hung up, then GVoice app take over. Gvoice will ring. This is confusing at best.
This used to be a great app. Now it’s literally junk. Have multiple Apple products with this installed. It’s super slow, hogs resources and it’s literally unusable at time with endless failures to send. It works fine on Android.
There are several problems. You cannot tap a phone number and add it to contacts - you have to open a new screen and manually enter the name and number After that it takes awhile (an hour or two for me) for that contact to show up in the list of contacts. And sometimes they never do. I have had several missed calls that never ring to my phone. Very unsatisfied with such horrible functionality from a google app.
I’ve been using google voice for a few years and overall love it. But recently, calls are going to my personal voicemail. Very annoying and completely defeats the purpose of having a separate number. Also, I’m still waiting for an auto text response when on Do Not Disturb.
Great app but I am not going to go into my phone find the app and then open it then click the person I want to call. So I’ll get to the point MAKE A SIRI SHORTCUT. It can’t be TOO hard for GOOGLE for heavens sake!
It’s not often I give one star but I am so disappointed by the recent issues. Basically the app will randomly freeze for a few seconds and it happens often. Makes it very annoying. I have iPhone 8 Plus with the latest iOS and battery is still at 93% capacity so its performance is not throttled. Plus all the other app run smoothly. The other significant issue is that sometime the text input field will disappear. I have to quit and reopen the app to get it back. Very annoying. Can’t believe this is an app from Google. I am only having trouble with google voice. I use google voice since the beginning and use it heavily, therefore these issues affects my productivity and experience a lot. I hope the developer will improve it soon.
Well, I updated it, the icon changed color, but now, it won’t even open! It crashes instantly! It was great until the latest update March 2019 iPhone 8+ Google! Fix this!!
