WARNING: you WILL lose the ability to receive call on your carrier number 1/5
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.
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.
Calls are going to personal voicemail 2/5
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.
By Ari RERA 43
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!
Freezes randomly 1/5
By Not Mark Twain
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.
Updated it March 2019, and now it won’t even open! 1/5
By Dj Maginity
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!!
“OK I’ve sent the caller to voicemail, goodbye” 1/5
I answered the call and got this message without selecting anything or being able to listen to the caller’s message. Nice.
Finally!!! An app update that makes this stable 5/5
I love google voice and I love this new updated stable app but I absolutely hated the old google voice app on IOS devices. Slow and laggy, would constantly crash or become unresponsive my favorite little quirk was that at time you would click to type a text and the text field and keyboard would both disappear and you would be forced to force close the app in order to possibly get it back up and running. NOT ANYMORE! This update resolved 99% of the issues that I ran into before the app performs faster and smoother and doesn’t have the little quirks it used to. Thanks google for finally tossing us IOS users a bone and getting this fixed and done right, next time maybe do it a little quicker than 2 years.
Input field disappears 3/5
Sometimes the text input field disappears. Only way to get it back is to reopen the app.
Call waiting 3/5
Call waiting is an issue. When I’m on the line I get another call, and when I go back to the first call it’s lost.
Older version was less laggy 4/5
This version on my iPhone 7 is laggier and struggles to send SMS occasionally. I have to tap to retry more often than not. Also, when switching into this app from another, it always takes a few seconds for the view to load and for the app to respond. I can swipe and touch and nothing happens for a couple seconds until it feels like it’s “caught up”. Not happy with this update. The older version worked much better and was much snappier.
I love this app but I personally use this for business. I wish you guys would put an option not to sync my personal contacts with the google voice and vice versa. But you guys are doing great with this app. That’s just my only issue.
Decent Application 2/5
By CTS Coupe
The app does well in its ability to make calls locally and abroad. Also as far as texts are concerned, no major flaw except it can send video files. It lacks tremendously by not being able to send video files and lack of Siri integration. I understand that it’s a Google app, so it’s not native to the Apple iOS, so lack of Siri integration is for the most part expected.
What is not good is the inability to send video files. This is a basic trait of most chat apps. It would get 4 or 5 stars if it could allow for video attachments and better Siri integration.
Stop unknown caller! 3/5
Please develop a feature that we can block unknown caller! Also for call quality is ups and downs, totally speaking, 90% satisfaction for it, thank you.
Contact pictures don’t always appear 3/5
Pictures of contacts that have been saved in your address book and sync to your google account don’t always have their picture appear.
People are using this app on Craigslist and other things to scam people out of their money. I really believe google should do something about this
Horrible on iPhone, buggy, crashes, have to constantly resend texts 1/5
Ok, here's the issues I've been facing:
App constantly crashes
Barely sends pictures/gifs
Texting is a nightmare - have to constantly resend texts that are just texts with no images
Slow to load
Refuses to acknowledge that I've read a text already, have to kill the app and reopen multiple times to get rid of notification badge
Won't allow contact editing
Will make phone calls alright
Glitches glitches glitches 1/5
First, every time I go into a conversation it’s not on the last message I received, it goes to a message from a few days ago.
When I cut and paste text, only a few words seems to appear.
Crashes crashes crashes continuously.
Come on google you’re the biggest tech company in the world.
Issues opening app 1/5
By Pinkies Treats
For some reason after updating the app, it won’t allow me to open the app anymore
Bug fest: Can only call a single phone number 1/5
By Bonita Creative
The concept for google voice is fantastic. It worked great for a few months, but now, I can only call a single phone number. No matter what number I punch in, it reverts to the “stuck” number. I tried posting to the community board, uninstalling and reinstalling, signing in and out, etc., with zero luck. Fail.
Stuck in loop while trying to verify number😑 1/5
By Kayla Thomas-Williams
I’ve have my iCloud linked to google so I can use there products and services. Out of all the products I’ve use this is the only one I’m having trouble with and it’s very bothersome. Every time I try to verify my number I am stuck in it and list loop and every time I try to resend the code it doesn’t work so I have to go inside my settings and delete the number and start all over again. Only to be stuck in the same stupid loop please fix this Google!
Can't seem to send a text message half the time. Slow start up. And nothing I do on the main account on my computer will not update anything on my app. Can't delete contact numbers. Can't update a contact number. It's been frustrating since the new look came out.
By Chuli 13
Alguien me pidio q le enviara el codigo de verificación, ahora que puedo hacer?
Not functional 1/5
I use this app for work where I really need a second number aside from my personal. And I don’t receive calls sometimes. Or any notifications unless I open the app. It’s really disappointing when I keep missing calls from customer or other employees.
Latest update doesn’t ring through on IOS 1/5
Incoming calls go to voice mail, with no ringing on cell phone. Very disturbing.
Ever since the update my son can’t call me thru google. When he calls it only rings on his end one time but won’t connect his call to me. And the prices of regular calls versus google voice are double for me.
NOT SENDING COPY & PASTED TXTS 1/5
Was working Fine but for some reason isn’t sending Copied and Pasted Txts, only sends them when it wants! Find it very annoying as I have a small Business and use this app to Communicate with my Staff. Very Inconvenient and Annoying Please Fix! I was Really Enjoying this app but now I find it more of a Hassle than a Vital tool.
Could be better 1/5
Update: now the app has been stuck updating for 18 hours. Why? I can’t stop it nor get it to finish. I’ve tried on multiple networks. Nothing.
Has some serious load issues say when you get a new message and are in the chat already, and have to currently reinstall as it got stuck sending photos for a month. Normally when I’m at my computer I use the browser version instead of reaching for my phone. The latest layout is also very confusing and everything feels wrong.
I can’t add contacts 2/5
By I never write reviews 123
The app does its job expect for a major problem, IT WON’T LET ME ADD CONTACTS! I have to guess who the hell is calling or contacting me and google provides no way to get help. This app is terrible
By John Dat
There should be an easier way to set a specific ringtone for GV calls
Ringtone Differentiating 3/5
I am pleased with almost every feature of this app EXCEPT the fact that there is no way to change the ringtone of the incoming calls. Since the app automatically takes on the phones default ringtone, it makes it hard know which is which. I need to be able to distinguish between the incoming app call and the normal incoming phone calls... I wish an update would provide a fix for this.
Phone calls drop suddenly 2/5
Since the latest update and new look to Google voice, when I make phone calls the sound cuts out when dialing and I can only hear anything once the person picks up or it goes to voicemail. It’s very disconcerting to be staring at your screen waiting so long and wondering if the phone call actually went through.
Also, now whenever I leave the app to check my calendar or look at any other app, when I come back to the google app I can’t hear anything. Total silence like when it’s dialing. The timer is still counting the minutes but I can’t communicate w the person in the other end. Please fix this!!
Glitches all the time freezes doesn’t send messages 90% of the time .. find my self having to delete the app and re instal to get it to work ... so over this app but it’s free so i keep trying ... really ready to give up and just pay for a better app !!!!!!
Refund my Google Voice Balance 1/5
I’ve been submitting and communicating with your people and I am still unable to get a refund on a balance that remains on my Google Voice account. Why do you make it so exhausting and difficult to take care of your customers?
From great to mediocre 2/5
Every update makes things worse. So many delays. Messages don’t send; must tap to retry. They removed the Inbox, so you must look in dif’t places for incoming texts and voicemails. App says photos sent, but recipient doesn’t receive anything.
Doesn’t let you edit contacts 1/5
I made the mistake of linking my contacts to google voice. No big deal, I thought, I’ll delete the unnecessary ones. That’s when I discovered it doesn’t allow you to delete or edit contacts after you create them. That’s really stupid, poor design.
Crappy barebones functionality 2/5
Try to add a contact. Yeah I didn’t think so.
Now go to your list of recent calls. You’d think you could tap on a phone number to add it to your contacts. Nope.
Now try to do the same in text messages...voice messages...? Why isn’t this most basic functionality missing? I’m trying to give you my contacts, Google, but you won’t make it easy for me.
Can’t send messages 1/5
The latest update only allows me to send messages to people who are in my contacts. So frustrating!
"message failed to send" for all texts 1/5
This latest update slowed the app down a lot, taps are delayed and all text messages fail to send several times. Also, I thought this update was supposed to bring video mms support, what happened to that?
Bad Update 3/5
Since the latest update I am getting so many dropped calls it’s not worth using anymore. Voice messages are appearing without ringing for the calls. Please fix ASAP
Won’t open 1/5
Completely broken in current and previous versions. Opens and crashes immediately.
Trash and a rip-off 1/5
By Ricci 23
Worst app ever can't make a call every since I downloaded it I can't unlink my number I want my money back
Improvements needed 2/5
Make this a 5star app by allowing more than one number to be used simultaneously on a single phone. Some people have more than one business and work for more than one. Then it would be a 5star service!
Very poor ! Fix GV ASAP! 1/5
So many bugs! I think the older version is way better ! It keeps hanging, and won’t send my texts in time! I have to keep tapping to retry ! Please fix GV ASAP!
Useless! What a waste! 1/5
This app seems so fake! It won’t let me make calls. WTH? Uninstalled it from my phone! This app is useless and crappy! What’s the point of having this kind of app in an App Store when it won’t work and calls can’t be made!
Why does this the upgraded app hangs on my phone but the old one doesn’t do like that
