What Google Voice features do I get with Google Fi?

Most Google Voice features are available with Google Fi but some features have changed. You can talk, text, and check voicemail on any device with one phone number.

You can also learn what happens to your Google Voice number.

Features you get with Google Fi

With Google Fi, you’ll have all of the following features you enjoyed with Google Voice:

  • Call, text, and check voicemail on the web, Android phones or tablets, and iPhones or iPads, using Hangouts.  
  • Forward calls, except to Google Voice or Google Fi numbers.
    • The call forwarding numbers you had set up on Google Voice will transfer to Google Fi. If you set your call forwarding numbers to ring at different times, these settings will also transfer to Fi.
    • Unless you set up an app to redirect your phone calls, any outgoing calls from a phone that you’re forwarding to using the default Phone app will come from the phone’s number, not your Google Fi number. If you make an outgoing call with the Hangouts dialer, the call will come from your Google Fi number.
  • Block calls
    • Your blocked numbers on Google Voice will remain blocked.
    • At the bottom of any page on the Google Fi website, go to Google Voice to add, change, or remove blocked numbers.
    • You can also block individual numbers from your contacts.
  • Find your call and voicemail history
    • At the bottom of any page on the Google Fi website, go to Google Voice to find your call and voicemail history.

  • Message history
