Working like a charm!

SimpleScorpio's Review of Google Voice

I was finally able to log in to the settings via the mobile browser and fix BOTH of my issues! I was able to take my forwarding off of my gmail account (not sure WHY it went there) and change my greeting from DEFAULT to My recorded one! I am happy as a clam now! (Whatever that means) I just wish there was a way to do this WITHIN the app itself. There are a few other minor things I would change but... IT'S WORKING AND I AM FUNDAMENTALLY HAPPY! Update: Can we PLEASE get a way to STOP spam calls and neighbor spam. Leaving my google voice on do not disturb all the time is kind of defeating using it as an additional phone number. Having to block EVERY caller is a pain just find a way to let us eliminate calls all together of specific types or the use of wildcards....something....anything because these calls are driving me insane!

Google voice works - simple basic free app that works

There are a lot of phone number apps that aren't free and are not nearly as good as this one. The app does what it is supposed to do which is send and receive text messages and phone calls. The phone call quality on my cell phone is actually clearer than when I use my own provider. My provider is one of the big 5 nationally. What I read on negative reviews is that it saved text and call number history. That seems to not be the case in the version I am using now. I did something no one else mentioned which was delete the app from my phone, restart my phone, and add it back. Once I did that all those issues were gone and never returned. Yes this is the iPhone version lol.

Glitchy

I really like the app; however, there are major issues. Specifically, there are issues in sending photos. Sometimes they hang up, are never sent, and always show in a “sending” status. There is no way to remove them... other than deleting the app entirely and re-installing.

Has issues with photos

I have been using this app for many years with its ups and downs. Was happy when they added the ability to send photos. Not sure of the current issue but when I upgraded from an iPhone 6 to an iPhone XS it will only send phots to non AT&T users like sprint or Verizon. Texts go though but without the photos.

Love the app, but it needs work

I love using this as my second line. One MAJOR improvement it needs is the ability to select photos from albums instead of scrolling through 16,000 photos to find one. The call quality is great, just needs the improvement on the photos. Then it'll be 5 stars

Using Contacts With Google Voice

Alirixan's Review of Google Voice

I may be doing something wrong, but using contacts with this version of the app is almost impossible. The easy search function of a previous version has disappeared. Moreover all contacts are listed alphabetically BY FIRST NAME. Perhaps this is controlled by a setting, but as I never have and never will sort my contacts by first name, I don’t know why they have now defaulted that way. I don’t have the time to research how (or if) I can correct that. I think I’m going to stop using the app for a while and revisit it in 6 months or so to see whether it’s been improved. I really hope it does get fixed because it used to be much better than the closest alternative. Thanks!

Horrible calling app.

When someone calls me the calls goes to another number. I got another number same problem. People are cursing out my callers. I haven’t had any issues with texting I no longer use google voice. I’m not the only person having this problem. Im using another app and no problems.

Stuck Attachments!

For reasons unknown if you attach an image and it doesn’t go through it gets stuck — “sending” forever. There’s no way to cancel it which essentially cripples the app, making it become more or less useless. You would think the bright minds that work for the big G would’ve tested such things. Perhaps they outsourced the project to a bunch of amateurs and this is the end result of sloppy cut-rate work.

We need vcard support!

It's crazy that we can't receive attachments like vcards via text.

Doc Toney's Review of Google Voice

Like many others on here I am not receiving calls. History of present issue: Software: iOS 12.1.2 Device: iPhone Xs 12/26/2018: I paid $10 to change my google voice number and added $10 credit. I thought I was well on my way to an established second line. Then I asked my wife to call my google voice number. However, I did not receive a notification on the app. I opened the app and there was a confirmed missed call. I double checked my notifications, and Apple iPhone settings. Everything seemed ok. I decided to trouble shoot and have my google voice calls forwarded to my actual iPhone number. Voila! It worked! Then I set the settings back to receive calls on the google voice app, and again it’s not working. This is poor functionality for a company with a valuation of nearly a trillion dollars. Please help!
