OK, doesn't always refresh....

I've had a positive-mixed experience.... It's caught some messages on it's own in the background, cool, but it's also failed to update until I've manually given the app focus again.... I think it should be more open, what the refresh rate is, so that the expectations are set and so I actually know when to complain or not... idk if it's working as intended or not, considering the description mentioning it may be a bit buggy given the new way it connects. I am impressed at how well it works and how much functionality is still there, even though google closed it's API. On that note, you've done a spectacular job, i'm more than happy to pay the $2 for your app, and I hope that my software development skills get to this level some day (I usually do fat clients on windows desktop.... looked into store apps but not really my thing).

Working pretty well with Windows 10

Seems like the login problems have been fixed. Working pretty well with Windows 10 including giving notifications in the Action Center! Main issue is that it continues to nag you with the same notifications over and over if you don't open them up. This quickly fills the Action Center and is not how notifications normally should work with text (only one notification should be given per text). Also, once in a while I have some issues going back in the app and I have to close and restart it.

Make an app for Windows Phone!

Like the app, but would love a version for the phone.

No point on PC

Redundant. No message center notification without a second app to handle that (which has been shut down). It offers less functionality than one can get by pointing a browser at google.com/voice. If this were free an open source there might be some value to it but as it stands there is no reason for this to even exist.

It Works!

In a day when Google Voice apps stopped working across the board this one works!!

I can't live without it.

It's nice, clean and just needs phone and call management to be complete. I'd just ask the team to stay on top of the bugs more. I've had a week go by from time to time when it wouldn't work. Beyond that, essential!

Great Google Voice Client for W8

Updated 1.July.2015 People (users) really should READ before trashing what was once a fantastic and very useful app. Yes, it no longer works, not because the app is any different but because Google changed the way the service works. The most amusing part is that Google announced the end of product life MORE THAN A YEAR AGO. But i guess its easier to trash a developer than take two minutes to educate yourself through reading a fact or two. My new rating for GVOICE 10 Stars. Thanks for a great app guys! Great UI for a service I've used for years. Highly recommend especially if you're like me and don't get good mobile service.

G voice

This app does just what it says it does. I don't miss any text msg. and now I don't have to keep my browser open anymore. It is great when working.

Great concept, little buggy

Problems with first login at the moment. Screens crash sometimes. It's certainly not unusable though, and definitely useful. Surface Pro 3

App details


Version notes

On April 20th, Google removed their ClientLogin API, causing GVoice and all other 3rd-party Google Voice apps to break. This update works around the lack of a proper Google Voice API to get GVoice back to a somewhat usable state, but it is quite hacky and may break in the future. In addition, some things still do not work since Google broke them, and may never work again: - Support for Google accounts using two factor authentication - Support for Google Contacts integration - Support for sending picture messages using Google Docs / Google Drive
