    Published: 2015-04-10, by .

    Google voice was a great calling app before it was deserted.

    • Calls and texts
    • Cheap international calls
    • Easy to use
    • Only available U.S.
    • Abandoned
    • Issues with Hangouts

    "Google Voice Worked While It Lasted"


    Google Voice lets you make local and international calls and text messages with your own specific Google number. The app works well, but isn't 100 percent compatible with the new Google Hangouts. Since Hangouts has upgraded, it looks as though this app has been abandoned by developers as there have been no updates since September of 2014.


    This app works well for calls and gives you a cheap alternative for international calling.


    The app has been abandoned by its developers and is not 100 percent integrated in Google Hangouts.

    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).
