About the new Contacts experience

Google Voice now uses Google Contacts instead of Google Voice Contacts. The new layout is slightly different but, keeping track of your contacts is still a breeze. Here’s what’s different:

  • Accessing the Call and SMS buttons. To access the “call” and “sms” options:
    1. Select a contact.
    2. Hover over the phone number field on their contact card.
    3. Select either the phone icon or the SMS icon.
  • Accessing the Edit custom Google Voice settings. To access custom Google Voice settings for a particular contact:
    1. Sign in to your Google Voice account.
    2. Search for your contact’s name in the search field at the top of the window, and when it appears, click the contact’s name.
    3. On the contact card that appears, select edit settings. From there you can edit your contact’s Google Voice specific settings.
