Can't get Google Voice to log in from my phone.
1
I got a new phone, an LG Aristo (X212TAL), from t-mobile. I have an old Voice account. It worked fine on the old phone. Works fine from Web. After installing the GV app on the new phone, it opens and says "Sign in to your Google Account", "Choose an account to use with Google Voice". It pops up an error saying "Failed retrieving accounts", then just spins forever. Google play working fine (same google account), I installed Voice and other apps just fine with it. Checked app permissions on Voice, Google Services, and Google Play. All permissions on (they are all off on voice when first installed,I turned them on). Then I removed and reinstalled Voice. After re-enabling all permissions again, still same result. Ideas?

In my case it was not a permissions issue. My Google Play Services was very old and not updating itself. Loading the latest APK fixed the issue with Google Voice (via Apkmirror). I could not even update from the Play Store.

I got the same problem with Samsung Galaxy S7 Active. After setup Google Voice can`t find Google account. Even factory reset did not help.

PROBLEM FIXED once I allow Samsung Email App to login to my Gmail. You should click on mail App on your Samsung phone and grant access to your Gmail. Than Google Voice and probably any other apps will know you Googlt Account

It's such a shame that Google Support never seems to know about their own products.  They'll ask you a hundred questions;  "What version GV you running, what model phone", etc.  Those are just stalling questions, because they really don't know the answers.

This all started happening after I factory reset the phone.  I immediately installed GV -- the only non-manufacturer app.  When having this issue after a factory reset, make sure that your Google Play Services is updated to the latest version.  Fixed it for me no problem.

No thanks to Google Support.

Can someone please help? I haven’t been able to log into my GV since yesterday. Up until now I haven’t had any issues with my number. Now I can’t recieve or send calls/texts.
