Description of App: 

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.

Keep in mind:
• Google Voice is currently only available in the US. Google Voice for G Suite users is available in select countries. Check with your administrator for access.
• Calls made using Google Voice for iPhone can be placed through a Google Voice access number. All access number based calls use the standard minutes from your cell phone plan and may incur costs (e.g. when traveling internationally).

Other Comments: 

The v2.0 is a great update and the interface is so much easier to use than the older version. You have more to control and the best part is that one can create a phone number right from this app. In the past you could only do this from the website and that was not so nice and easy to create before. There is certainly more accessibility built in to this version than the past. So nicely done!
