FAQ

  • What is Voice?

    With Google Voice, you get one phone number that works across smartphones, the web, and desk phones. With one number, you’re never tied to a physical device to make and receive phone calls, text messages (U.S. only), or access voicemail. You can also link multiple devices which will all ring simultaneously when a call comes in on your Voice number.

  • What countries is Voice available in?

    You can use Voice anywhere you can connect to the internet. Setting up a new account with Voice is available in these countries:

    • U.S.
    • Canada
    • Denmark
    • France
    • Portugal
    • Spain
    • Sweden
    • Switzerland
    • U.K.
  • Does Voice support SMS?

    Currently, you can only send and receive SMS messages in the U.S.

  • What is a linked number?

    With Voice, you get a single number that you use to make and receive calls on the web and mobile app. However, you can link up to 6 non-Voice numbers to your account. If you link a number, calls to your Voice number will also ring on your linked number.

    If you make a call from Voice and there’s no internet connection available, the call can be completed through your linked phone number’s carrier.

  • Can I have more than one Voice number?

    A Google Account can have only one Voice number. However, you can link up to 6 non-Voice numbers to forward calls to or from a Voice number.

    If you have more than one Google Account set up in Voice, you can use several accounts on the same device.

  • Are calls in Voice free?

    Calls made to other Voice numbers in the same G Suite domain are free. Other calls are billed based on Voice calling rates.

  • Do Voice calls count towards mobile data charges?

    Calls made over mobile-carrier connections count toward mobile data charges. Any calls made over local-carrier voice lines (with linked numbers) might incur carrier charges.
