Hello everyone,

We are excited to share Google Voice now works with Google Fi. 

Moving forward, you can have separate Fi & Voice numbers on the same Google account. You can use the two numbers for different purposes, such as one for family & friends and the other for business. To receive calls in one central place, set up call forwarding on the Google Voice settings page.

If you would like to move your Fi number back to Google Voice and get a new Fi number, you can follow the instructions here.

This feature starts rolling out today and will be available to everyone in the upcoming days.

So I have a Google voice number I think. I might have deleted it but not sure. But if I do then I can setup one for my wife also and have them forwarded to our phones? We both use fi. And what would be the advantage or purpose of this? CN I use my voice.nimber on a phone that has WiFi only such as an old pixel 1 or Nexus 6p? Or on a PC? We don't use hangouts we just use messages and duo. Any help with understanding this.more would be apriciated. Thank you

Yes, Google Voice works over WiFi
 
... what would be the advantage or purpose of this?...
See the documentation for a complete description of what Google Voice is and can do.
It may or may not be useful to you.

Hi Charlie, just to add to what Red Leatherman wrote, here is what Fi suggests: 
You can use the two numbers for different purposes, such as one for family & friends and the other for business. 
 
You could, for example, provide the Google Voice phone number when a business asks for a phone number, but you don't want to give your personal one.

Can you assign a different ring or anything, so you know if the incoming call is to your fi number or voice number?

My Scorptress asked ..."Can you assign a different ring or anything, so you know if the incoming call is to your fi number or voice number?"...
 
A mobile phone will let you assign a ringtone for an inbound number not the carrier the call is being routed through.
 
To select a ringtone for all calls to the Google Voice number,  you can select whether or not inbound calls display your Google voice number and assign a ringtone to that Google Voice number.
 
Use a desktop browser and enter your Google voice settings and go to the calls tab, 
Scroll down to where it says Show my Google Voice number as caller ID when forwarding calls.
 
Make your preferred selection.

Thanks! 
By doing that, I won't be able to see who is actually calling the GV number, I'm guessing?

I have Google Fi and Google Voice using different accounts. Can I change the Google account that Google fi is setup on so that now both use the same account. How can I do that? I want to keep both my Google Voice number and Google fi number but change the account so that Google fi is linked to the same account as Google voice, now that we can do that. Thanks.

I too have a very similar history and preferences as Nicholas above, having had GV in the past and preferring it for all it's convenient functions, and specifically the ease of management and the ability to search through history. I've been on Fi since the beginning. My current number was my GV number and has been the only number I've used throughout.

I would like to switch back to GV hoping to get some of those conveniences back and don't mind porting this same number there and just getting a new Fi number and choosing to use that or not. However, I'd like to know:

A) Would I be able to port the number back to Fi if after trying the new version I am not happy with the way it works? And what would the repercussions, if any, of that change be?

A.1) Along those same lines, could I alternate between the two numbers, porting one to the other service (i.e. porting the GV # to Fi and the Fi # to GV) if I find I have particular preferences for one number/service over the other as I learn the ropes of the "new way"?

B) Does the new Google Voice allow control and management (search, deletion, etc.) of messages and call history? (This is an important concern about data privacy for me, as indeed it should be for anyone. I don't care for the idea of Google's scanning bots having access to all my messages and phone calls back to scour for marketing ideas or otherwise.)

C) Does the new GV provide the user with management of outgoing voice message so that I can record/upload this message on the web interface? (this is not huge but was a nice aspect of it in the past.)

thanks
