ok app, but needs improvisions
Most of the GVoice app is great, but needed quicker notifications from both Google Hangouts and from my phone.More
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.More
I want to replace all my telephony with GVoice!
I am so tired of my current mix of expensive wireless and wired phones. Please keep making it easier for everyone to migrate to a good alternative!More
This is the best you are going to get if you want to use Google voice on your Windows 10 device. It sometimes drives me crazy but most of the time it works pretty good.More
Love the app
This has become my go to for Google Voice. Love the interface and functions. Does just what is needed. I had to do a reinstall and felt lost without it on my start menu.More
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).More
Great way to stay in touch
I love having my google number. I don't have cell reception at home, so it's the perfect way to still text people.More
This app was no good On Windows 10 Lenovo laptop, it took forever to sign in I had to uninstall and then reinstall and even then I still had to open and close the app a couple times just to get it to work and when it finally did work it wouldn't load any messages or calls and wont send any messages or callsMore
Make an app for Windows Phone!
Like the app, but would love a version for the phone.More
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.More

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
