This is a great app, yet it has so many flaws as well. I will mention one con, Google Voice should be more integrated with IOS.
I’m in lockdown in Malaysia and have been texting family in the US to make sure everyone is ok. Google Voice suspended my account because I was overusing it. Really? We’re in a pandemic. Please update the algorithms to allow for more texting during this time. I wonder how many other people have been suspended as a result. Now I have to wait until someone addresses my appeal. :(
Great app that’s mostly reliable. But in the era of smart watches, there needs to be a watch app. Please consider this app enhancement.
I’ve used google voice for 3 years and never had an issue until it just stopped working yesterday. I keep getting the something went wrong message. I use this number for work so my clients don’t have my personal phone number. It’s on my business cards. With it down I don’t know how to reach my clients. It’s very frustrating.
Why will it NOT take my number to verify to use???
I am having trouble verifying my device phone number with this app. Cant utilize the app or google voice number. This is causing tons of irritation.
where's a favorite numbers page? how is that seriously missing? where are cardified links? Google was a big part of the internet 20 years ago and apparently they're still there
I downloaded the voice app because I am not always near my computer. The notifications do not sync in real time and it’s inconvenient. The bubble stays displayed on my phone after I’ve replied on the computer. Also, reading a message in the thread doesn’t consider it as read until you leave the thread and open it up.
Very disappointed with this app. I was trying to use it to stay in contact with my students’ parents, but it’s not working. I give up
