What is Google Voice?

Google Voice is a service that allows you to use a single phone number across multiple devices., replete with voicemail, SMS functionality, and more. It’s perfect for those who want to consolidate their communication channels or need a new phone number for personal or business use.

How to Set Up Google Voice

Setting up Google Voice is easy – here’s how:

  1. Go to the Google Voice website and sign in with your Google account.
  2. Choose a Google Voice number from the options provided.
  3. Verify your existing phone number, which will be used to forward incoming calls from your Google Voice number.
  4. Once you’ve verified your phone number, you’re all set!

Remember, Google Voice is currently available only in the U.S. and requires an existing U.S. phone number for verification.

How to Use Google Voice

Once you’ve set up your Google Voice number, it’s time to start using it! Here are some basics:

1. Making Calls

You can make calls directly from the Google Voice website, or via the Google Voice app on your smartphone. Just dial the phone number you want to call, and press the call button.

2. Sending Text Messages

To send a text message, click on the ‘Message’ button, type your message, and press ‘Send’.

3. Checking Voicemail

Google Voice also transcribes your voicemails into text so you can read them instead of listening to them. To check your voicemail, go to the ‘Voicemail’ tab on your account.


Google Voice is a handy tool that can simplify your communications. While it may take a little time to get familiar with it, the convenience it offers is worth the effort. Happy communicating!
