Not only can you receive and make calls from all of your devices, but Google Voice also integrates seamlessly with a user inference familiar to those already utilizing Google services. Read and send free SMS text messages, access voice mails and call history, or make and receive video calls, all from a page that resembles a Gmail inbox. You can do this all right on your computer, or download an Android or iOS app to access it all on the go. While there are other methods on the market that allow you to text through your computer, they rely on an application to be installed on your phone and connectivity to the device. Google Voice will allow you text online, through your Google number, even when your phone dies.

Saving voice messages to your iPhone prevents them from being automatically deleted, however they can take up significant space on your device. For this reason, you may want to back up the voice messages to your computer, then remove them from your iPhone to save space.

8. Finally, specify how you want to be notified about new voicemail messages. You can receive them by email (turn on the option for "Get voicemail via email"), and you can also choose to get messages via text message. For that, tap "Get voicemail via messages" and then select which phones to send the texts to.

Transcribed voicemail messages are a key feature of Google Voice. But you may decide that you don't want transcribed messages emailed to you, that you prefer to hear recorded messages only. If that's the case, just follow these steps to turn off voicemail transcription:

Instagram added a voice messaging feature to its direct messages way back in December 2018. Users can send audio messages up to one-minute long in their private and group chats using the app, on both iOS and Android.

You can send voice messages using Instagram Direct. To see messages you've sent or received with Instagram Direct, tap the arrow in the top right of feed. From there, you can manage all your messages.

Google Voice is a free service open to United States residents that allows them to set up one phone number that automatically forwards to all of their phones. Subscribers can take advantage of a number of advanced features, such as voicemail services and text message forwarding. Since Google Voice numbers are not tied to a particular device, subscribers never have to worry about porting or moving their phone numbers.

No, you cannot listen to the voicemail you sent. Whiles still connected, you can have a chance to listen, edit or possibly delete the message. But you won't be able to hear or do anything to it after sending it.

That will require some extra effort. You can call your voicemail service to check your messages and view a list of your voicemails in your Phone app. Open the Phone app. At the bottom, tap Dialpad. Touch and hold 1.

MightyCall provides such an answer for businesses. With simple, visually-based call flows, adapting your voicemail messages for different seasons, customers, and even different times of day demands no tech knowledge and no hardware.

Unfortunately, not all phone numbers can be dialed: Slydial doesn't work with landline phones, third-party voicemail services, VoIP numbers, or prepaid mobile phones. If you subscribe to one of the premium plans, you can eliminate the ads on the service and send messages to multiple contacts at once.

Traditional voicemail services once offered this feature, but visual voicemail (with a visual interface that lets you access messages directly) has mostly eliminated that possibility. If your phone does not have visual voicemail, and you have to call an inbox to hear your messages, you may still be able to use this feature.

Check with your carrier on specifics, but an option to "send a message" may be in the voicemail menu. This will allow you to send a voice message from your voicemail to another person's inbox without having to make a phone call first. Even if you have this feature, it can only be used to send messages to contacts with the same carrier as you. So Verizon customers can send voice messages only to other Verizon customers, for example.

Many messaging apps, including Facebook Messenger, Telegram, and WhatsApp, offer the ability to send voice messages to contacts without needing to make a phone call at all. Typically, you would send a voice message by opening a conversation in the app and holding down the microphone button. You then let go to send the message or swipe the screen to delete.

Apple iPhone users can send voice messages from Apple's Messages app by tapping the microphone button inside the text box (this works only when you're messaging other iPhones). By default, these messages last for only two minutes before they are deleted, but you can change that. Tap Keep under any sent voice message to preserve it.

For future voice messages, head to Settings > Messages and tap Expire under Audio Messages. You can set the expiration date to Never, but this affects only your record of the conversation, not the recipient's.

Google Voice is a convenient service provided by Google since March 11, 2009. It is used widely by people to make calls or send voice/text messages through a telephone number. But recently, a lot of people say they have problems with their Google Voice.

Another minor issue is that transcription of voicemails is obviously automated, and varies between pretty accurate and almost incomprehensible. I find myself needing to download and listen to the actual voicemail over half the time.

Have had this conversation with so many Apple people. They say that if you have Google Voice (which I have had and loved for over 5 years and used all around-the-world) that there is no way you can have calls coming to your GV phone # ring on your cell phone (mine is an iPhone 7+ with a Mexican SIM). I get voice messages left in my emails and texts with verification codes, but I never have, and neither has anyone I know, figured out how to have a call ring on your cell phone. Do I understand that if you have the Hangouts App installed on my iPhone and switch to Hangouts in Google voice, someone dialing my GV # will ring both on my computer and my phone?

google voice now even cant top up balance. I dont know why the author of this thread wrote about this but even linking the credit card dont shot ADD BALANCE now. they just removed this a long time ago.

@Dave: thank you so much for this amazing blog, we all appreciate your articles!
And let me ask you this, are you having problems with the service lately? Like people mentioning they called you, but it went to voicemail and never rang.

Hello, Nice article!! I just moved from the US to Portugal and I got a Portuguese SIM card for my phone. I am planing to stay here for the next 3 years. I want to cancel my cellphone plane that I have and transfer my number to google voice. My question is if I change from mobile to google voice (using my cell number) can I switch back to mobile from google voice later? Thank you.

check the input volume of your microphone. It is by default set to 0 in ubuntu (in my case). Since your program got stuck on the line audio = r.listen(source), which simply means that the microphone is not able to listen to any voice input. Hope this helps.

WhatsApp provides a huge number of exciting features to make chats with friends and family a challenge-free and smooth experience. Texting, voice calling, audio calling, stickers, GIFs, and Voice messaging are what make it convenient for you to connect with everyone. Recently, Meta-owned WhatsApp voice messages feature was updated. A new Pause button was added to WhatsApp Voice messages. For long messaging and communicating quickly, voice messaging really helps. However some users are face issues with voice messaging now. Sometimes it doesn't produce sound or maybe sometimes it just doesn't allow you to record. Both fault and solution lie within your smartphone only. Here, we have listed a few options that can help you solve your WhatsApp Voice Messages error.

Visual voicemail allows you to check and listen to voicemail messages you receive in any order. You can scroll through them in your time, pick and choose the ones you wish to listen to, and delete them through just a few taps on the screen of your device.

Does it sound pretty cool so far? Hold tight, it only gets even better from here. Other features of visual voicemail include the option to respond to messages through a text message or a call, on-screen access to viewing the status of messages, and lastly, you can always opt for instant playback access to your voice messages through the tap of just a button.

Visual voicemail is a gateway to saving time and convenience. After a recent update, US Mobile now offers it on both networks. Use the FREESIM promo code, and get started by ordering your starter kit. Better now than never.

I jyst switched my Galaxy S21 Unlocked to the Super LTE network. I cannot get the visual voicemail to work at all. Even when I leave a message (to test) the visual voicemail app does not work correctly the app says no new messages when there are messages and just has the button to call my voicemail..
