Google Voice gives you a phone number for calls, texts, and voicemails. You can use this number to make domestic and international calls from your web browser and mobile devices. If you’re in the US, you can choose your own number.

In addition to using Google Voice for calls, texts, and voicemails, you can also:

  • Read voicemail transcripts in your inbox and search them like emails.
  • Personalize voicemail greetings.
  • Make international calls at low rates.
  • Get protection from spam calls and messages.
  • Block unwanted callers.
  • Screen calls before you answer.

Google Voice saves and processes your call, text, and voicemail information.
