Description from store Extension Features: - Adds a button to the toolbar, which displays the number of unread messages in your Google Voice inbox. - Audible alert on new messages (can turn off in extension options). - Gives you quick access to your most recent messages with transcripts and voicemail playback. - Lets you initiate calls by just typing any number or contact name. - Makes phone numbers on websites callable via Google Voice by just clicking on them. - If a phone number doesn't turn into a link on any website (ex: Google Calendar), you can select the text with your mouse and the click to call popup will automatically display (note: might not work with all numbers). Info: - If you don't like the extension turning numbers into click to call links then you can turn it off in the extension options. Known issues: - Incompatible with the Skype extension. If the Skype extension is installed then the Voice extension will not turn numbers into call links. - Sometimes your forwarding phone list will be empty. If this happens make sure you are logged in to http://www.google.com/voice and then wait ~30 minutes. The problem should fix itselft automatically within 30 minutes and work from then on. Warning explained: When installing the extension it says "This extension will have access to all browsing history and private data on all websites" This is the default warning for any extension that needs content script access to all websites. This access is needed for detecting phone
Latest reviews (2019-11-20) Eaglecreeker 49: The best communication app around in my opinion. I have used gvoice as my first choice for texting my contacts for several years, I prefer it over hangouts and i think having it integrated within gmail as the earlier version was made it even better,,This is one app that i hope is not dropped or fixed (ie hangouts). There are alot of things gvoice really helps with,,,first off many of us dont own or use smart phones, Gvoice picks up many of the smart phone features,,like those pesky security verification text or codes,, those who live in bad cellphone areas know how much better it is to have a instant reliable mobil connection, right on the desktop,,,beats running around on cold nights to catch that extra login step that some website decides to send you at some ridiculous early am hour,,My only issue with gvoice is that my text messages sometimes,,get a tad long typed up on a full size keyboard and sent to a cell,,lol Great app if you take advantage of all it can do.One last note I see alot folks saying how much better it used to be,,subjective and i wonder how many things that could apply to,,, (2019-11-13) Anthony Sanchez: Wonderful application! However, Google Voice extension for Chrome is currently not working??? When sending a text from the extension, the extension says, "Please try again later" in highlighted pink. I already cleared data and reinstalled the application. (2019-11-13) Michael Yingling: Used to be 4-5 star, but they broke it a few months ago and you can no longer send texts from it. They know about this, so not sure why they broke it when they "upgraded" Google Voice. Give me a Google Voice API and I'll make my own tools... (2019-11-12) one Guest: It does work (2019-11-05) Robert Sylvester: It used to be great, however, now I can't text from the Chrome extension (Error: Try Again Later) and need to open my inbox. Otherwise, it seems to work fine. Please Fix! (2019-10-28) Mark Ratajczak: Looks like Google is abandoning this software and NOT REPLACING IT. Like everything else, you see something you like and use it and then they decide "nope, you can't have it anymore". (2019-10-25) Chris Howard: stopped working. only receives texts now, cannot respond. (2019-10-22) Craig Harshaw: stopped working. only receives texts now, cannot respond. (2019-10-22) Paul Gentry: worked fine for years, now all of a sudden there's this annoying little blip every 5 minutes or so when checking for new messages or calls? Very annoying.... don't want that and there's no option to turn that off. Removing it until it's updated to have an option to turn that off (2019-10-19) Scott Jeffers: Stopped working, needs an update (2019-10-15) Philip J: broken (2019-10-14) Joey Mavity: July 30, 2019: Google seems to have let this die. Can no longer send Google Voice texts through the extension. Edit Oct. 14, 2019: now it says the latest update was August 22, 2019 - but it didn't fix any of the issues. What was the update? (2019-10-14) Jessica Holbrook: It's even more broken now than it was before. Awhile back they stopped allowing you to text via the extension. You have to go to your inbox. Now notifications are stuck. I've cleared the extension twice and restarted my browser and my computer. It still pops up with a notification that I've already read. I can't clear it and it's driving me nuts. It will clear temporarily and then come back up. So yeah, it's broken more than it already was. I guess it's time to uninstall it. (2019-10-12) David Lieder: Like so many Google products, Chrome Google Voice Extension no longer works and is poorly supported by Google. (2019-10-12) Geoffrey Youngblood: It stopped working on all my computers a few months ago and nothing i can do has made it work again. Dont download. (2019-10-07) Slim Vision: I used to love the Chrome add-on so I dont have to constantly look at my phone, or I can even survive without a phone. For the past few months I have been unable to SEND a GoogleVoice message utilizing the widget. I instead have to load the entire website and do it. The whole point was to quickly view and respond while doing your daily duties... with the reply part broken this isn't even a full produce. What happened? And do you plan to get it resolved?? (2019-10-02) Alex Bodenheimer: Go to hell. You know why we hate you now. (2019-09-23) Rick Slaten: This used to be great but now it's not sending text messages. This is a major bummer (2019-09-22) Robb Graves: The extension is no longer able to send text messages - it says "please try again". You cannot make calls directly from the extension anymore, it takes you to the dashboard on the google voice page. Whats the point of having quick access in the extension, if nothing works? (2019-09-20) Nathan Anderson: Loved it for years, but now that calling directly from the extension has been removed, it's useless as all other features have been moved to the Hangouts extension. I've been hoping that calling (via phone) would be moved to the hangouts extension for months, but no sign of it. :( (2019-09-17) Johnny Edward Wellons, II: OK (2019-09-15) William Lee: Google appears to have stopped supporting this extension. As other reviewers note, you can't reply to texts within the extension anymore which was perhaps the single more used feature other than reading texts. You can still read them. The Google Voice blog hasn't been updated since 2013 and Google Fi does not have full google voice integration so it makes you guess what Google is up to with their Google Voice product going forward. (2019-09-15) Andrei Clear: seems to be broken :/ when I try to SMS - says: "Please try again." (2019-09-14) Allen B: App no longer works, and hasn't for months. Google is clearly trying to deprecate another product people use, without feeling the need to say so. (2019-09-14) Mark Knight: When I try to send an SMS from the pop-up it says "Please try again.". I've removed & reinstalled the extension half a dozen times. It just ain't working.
