How do I get Get Google Voice?

 

Google voice - A telephone and text message service for your mobile device and PC

In a world where cloud-based systems have been normalized, google voice has proven to be one of the best. It offers an amazing slate of services at very affordable prices. Google Voice allows you to take your office or home phone with you anywhere you go.

It's a free internet mobile service that enables you to connect all your cellular services and make calls to different devices at a time. For instance, if you own a landline, a business phone, and a personal phone, rather than bouncing between three numbers, with google voice, you can give out just one number. So when someone calls you, you'll get notified on all three devices. You can also decide to use google voice on your PC to make and receive calls.

To use any of the google voice features, you will need to have a google account first. You will also need to own an existing U.S based landline or mobile phone number. For anyone who has too many numbers to manage, Google voice is a great app that can help to merge more than one communication channel.

The google voice app is also a great app for regular travelers who are compelled to bounce between devices.

Perhaps you find yourself changing numbers or paying a fortune for International calls, google voice can ease the stress off you.


   


How to activate Google Voice:

Setting up the google voice on your mobile device or computer is pretty simple. It has a simple user interface that works just like your normal phone app. Although this has a lot more flexibility than most apps.

Once it's connected, you can send and receive messages using wifi or cellular data. However, there are a few restrictions.

If you're sending texts to anyone in Canada or the U.S, they are free. But once it's outside any of this region, then you'll have to have a wifi or data connection on. Otherwise, your phone company may charge you for extra roaming fees to send a text message from google.

  • Not bad

    By LambdaPrincess (Pcmac user)

    The the app folks have been working hard on this app since they give it the functionality we all expect when we text. I have every faith that they will finally get it together and that one day it will work effortlessly like it used to before they added the features that we all asked for. this app, in general, is a service that I cannot see living without. In my opinion, this app must be something that God created on the eighth day after he rested on the seventh I love it that much. I feel sorry for people who do not use this app as their primary way to contact people. I can't think of any way that they could possibly improve this app's incredibly rich and awesome features, except to finally get the app to stop crashing a few times a week.
  • Crashes regularly, many bugs

    By LostInSicilia (Pcmac user)

    I have been using this app for 1.5 years because I love the concept of a free way to text message and receive calls, but the app itself is the worst app on my phone. It crashes several times a week. When replying from the lock screen, it often does not actually send the message but doesn’t let you know it failed. I cannot send or receive video messages. A new message notification may pop up, but then when opening the app it may be super delayed in appearing. I regularly click on one text message and it opens a different one. 90% of the time if someone calls me, we can’t hear each other and I have to hang up and call them through a different app. I have to forward my calls instead, which works well. I have to use the app Hangouts to make free calls, because using the app either doesn’t work or uses my cell line that costs money. There are a couple of pictures I tried to send once and failed, but the app still shows them as pending months later and there is no way to delete them without deleting the whole conversation...so I have to scroll through them every time to see the latest message. the app obviously does not care to invest hardly any money or time in improving this app. If I knew of a reputable and more reliable free phone and text service, I would use it instead.
  • Major bugs

    By JXuba (Pcmac user)

    I’ve used GV for years. Ian using this app on an iPhone 6 with latest iOS. The current version contains two major bugs that currently make this a three star app. 1) when texting photos, an occasional photo will perpetually stay in “sending”mode and remain at the bottom of the conversation. Sometimes it is multiple photos that are stuck and you have to scroll up to get to the latest message in your exchange with a particular person. This issue can be present in multiple text conversations and every time you send or receive a text from that person, the picture or pictures are the first thing you see, even if they were sent a month ago. There is NO WAY TO DELETE THEM. The only way to fix this is to delete the entire app and reinstall it. 2) The text box where you compose your text message frequently is missing no matter who you try to text. The only way to fix this is to exit the app and open it again. These bugs are quite annoying. Granted, it’s not that difficult to to exit and reopen the app to fix issue #2 but the frequency that this needs to be done is a bit much. Deleting and reinstalling the app multiple times to fix issue #1 has gone way beyond being just a minor annoyance. I’m hoping these issues are fixed soon.
  • Calls no more ?? And no address book

    By yellowkiwi (Pcmac user)

    Still not improved!!! I have been using this app for nearly 4 years. I needed a safer way to contact clients while Keeping a low profile as well as a way to contact guys I date and block them if need be all while having the ability to archive messages to reference later since I’m also a writer. Overall the service works great but why no address book was included in iPhone app version is beyond me. So I had to add the clients number to the iPhone which became problematic when Facebook linked my profile to these contacts and all the sudden my privacy was violated. And because you can add and update or block numbers from the app only when you log in via your email it gets super annoying. I also wish the app had allowed for pictures to be sent out not just received. I recently downloaded another this app 3 app which I hoped included an address book along with picture sending and since downloading and using that I can no longer make calls using regular this app app. I also wish the messages wouldn't be separated into various conversations with the same person. Why couldn't they archive like regular text message for the same number. the app please fix!!
