Google’s voice over IP (VoIP) system Google Voice is a telephone and texting service, accessible on your phone or computer. It launched in 2009 and since then has served as a convenient way to add a second phone number to your mobile device. In addition to serving as a work or second personal number, Google Voice also works to shield your private information from criminals, hackers, and online troublemakers to protect your privacy. Just as you wouldn’t give out your landline number to just anyone, you don’t have to hand over your mobile number to every app, mailing list, social network, or new person you meet, either. Just use Google Voice. Here’s how to set it up.
What you Need?
- Google App
- Google Account, (buy from us)
- Android (recommended)
What is Google Voice?
Google Voice uses your Google account to give you a different public-facing phone number for calling, text messaging, and voicemail for your smartphone or computer. You choose your number as a second phone number that links to your actual personal number. You can set up the app to forward calls, text messages, and voicemail with a full backup. The app even offers advanced voicemail transcriptions that you can read in the app or have sent to your email and lets you call international destinations at competitive rates without extra charges.
If you’re using multiple devices simultaneously as most of us do these days, Google Voice connects to all of them so you can check your inbox from wherever you may be. Google Voice also filters out spam and can block any numbers you choose.
Google Voice is only available for U.S.-based Google accounts and G Suite accounts. Text messaging through Google Voice is only available in the U.S. and Canada. Plus, if you need to add another phone number to an already-existing account, you’ll find a different set of steps. Entering information out of order or making changes to phone numbers and other preferences may change the process a bit, too.
