Google Voice is a service that offers users call forwarding and voicemail services, voice and text messaging, and also U.S. and international calls for people who have a Google account in the United States, and for G Suite subscribers in many other countries. However, the text messaging service is not available for all markets.
The service was released by Google in March 2009. Google Voice provides you with a phone number that you can use for all those services we mentioned above. It functions on both mobile phones and PCs and syncs across your devices so you can use the app from anywhere.
Here are some interesting features and options that Google Voice offers.
