Voice displayed on devices

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.

Your organization might assign you a Voice number, let you choose your own, or transfer an existing number.

Important: Before you can use Voice, your administrator must have enabled it for your organization.
