  • Too many bugs

    It's just badly implemented. The messaging panes often freeze. Don't refresh correctly. Etc. Just too many bugs. Service is good, but this app itself is very low quality. Hard to believe it's a Google product. It's clearly neglected and has some low quality developers working on it.
  • IMPOSSIBLE TO SIGN UP, dreadful (nonexistent) customer service!!!!

    I’ve been unable to see my Google voice number in my account although I had just successfully linked my phone number to the Google voice one. The first time I tried to link my number, I had received a verification code via SMS, keyed in the code and it was accepted, but when I went back to make a call my actual phone number was recorded in the account but not the linked Google voice number. For subsequent attempts to link a number the message that “this number can’t be used to sign up for a Google voice number” showed up; that’s how I figured that the first time I tried linking my number it should’ve actually worked. I tried searching around for customer support to help me reinstate my lost Google voice number but could not find any help/support chat anywhere, only a few forum posts by people with the same problem as me, with the same canned unhelpful response that “your carrier might not be supported”, or that “your number might’ve been used before”, or that “you tried signing up too many times in the past 24 hours”. Well, that’s not the case for me as I managed to verify and link my account the very first time, but my number still DID NOT show up!!! At least let me know exactly WHY my Google voice number had not been linked, instead of saying “success” and not giving me the number (and removing the number from the pool) after!!! Google please fix your customer support system; I really want to use this app but you’re making it impossible!

    My iOS system has upgraded to 17.4 and now Voice is not working properly. I can’t edit a contact name, it doesn’t save the “add Contact” and make it searchable to find..ugh!! Forget automatic updates they always cause complications!
  • Unable to pick a Google number

    I have tried several times on my phone and computer to choose a number. I get the “something went wrong” message, and it doesn’t work. I’ve different area codes in my state. Seems like it is a common issue based off what others have said. I gave up on it.

    No UI updates in what seems to be years. Slow interface, numbers are re-skinned to names every time the app is open. No way to name group texts. Little management tooling. Seems like the team should review WhatsApp, Signal, etc… and identify the slickest features to implement. I feel like this (Google Voice) is on its way to be another discontinued Google project. Maybe because this is the iPhone app, they feel it needs little investment?
  • Major App Glitches

    Will not allow syncing with number just keeps asking me to do it over and over again. A waste of time. Other people have complained about the same thing, but their responses are zero help of course.
  • RCS Support

    Love using Google Voice for its ease and reliability. But now with Apple being forced to use RCS thanks to Google pushing them, it's time for Google Voice to catch up and and do the same!
  • Good app if you spend enough money

    This app works great on S22 ultra. But on my iPad mini 2 it only tells me to update the app to a version that doesn’t work with the iOS version apple stuck this iPad at. Thanks for forcing us to keep spendIng money on devices so we can use apps that can save us money.

    Unable to link my phone. Every time I’m presented with “ Something went wrong, try again later”. Unusable.
