Google Voice gives you a phone number for calling, text messaging, and voicemail. It works on smartphones and computers, and syncs across your devices so you can use the app in the office, at home, or on the go.
NOTE: Google Voice only works for personal Google Accounts in the US and G Suite accounts in select markets. Text messaging is not supported in all markets.

REQUIREMENTS TO INSTALL GOOGLE VOICE
We’ll assume you already have a Gmail account, which means that the first thing you will need is a Google Voice account. Using your Google account, go to the Google Voice homepage and sign up. Google Voice allows you to select a single phone number that friends, colleagues, or family members can contact you on. If you have several phone numbers, this single Google Voice number will ring all of them at the same time. This enables you to answer your incoming calls using the most convenient device.
The next step is to buy a dedicated headset with an inbuilt microphone if you wish to make regular calls using your PC and safeguard your privacy. Everyone knows how unreliable a built-in microphone can be.
GETTING SET UP
Once you have created your Google Voice account, Google will prompt you to select your new Google Voice number; the number people will call to reach your Google Voice account. You can have it assigned based off of your city or area code. Of course, this step can be skipped in the short-term, though you won’t get much use out of the account until a Google Voice number is assigned.
Once you select it, you will be prompted to link your Google Voice account to an existing phone number, and then to enter a verification code sent to that linked number.
The third step is to add any additional phone numbers that you want Google Voice to forward to. This means setting up your work phone, cell phone, or home phone to ring simultaneously when the Google Voice number is dialed. You can add a new linked number at any time by going to the settings tab, and then to the account tab.
Shortly after you finish setting up the account, you’ll have a brief voicemail welcoming you to Google Voice. After that, you’re good to go.
