Install and Setup Google Voice on an iPhone 6
Edited by Grimm, Sid Bedekar, Anonymous, Eng
You are watching VisiHow and today, we are going to show you how to download and setup Google Voice on your iPhone 6.
To get started, give a single press to the lock button on your iPhone 6.
One press will bring you to the lock screen.
A quick swipe across the screen will take you to the home screen of your phone.
You can swipe through or if you are on another page and you want to get back to that home screen, you just give a quick press (to the) round button at the bottom of the phone.
That is the home button.
That will take you back to the home screen.
From there, you are looking for the blue box with a white circle and what looks like a white letter "A" which is something of an architect's compass type thing. We are going to press that. It may not be on your home screen; you may have to swipe or shuffle through a bit to find it. In my case, it is on the home screen so I am going to give that a single tap.
Now what we are going to do - rather than look at, look through or play with any of the greatness here, we are going to tap on the search option.
The thing we are searching for, which we will tap the search bar here for is "Voice".
So we tap V-o-I-c-e. Now, I am looking for Google Voice and I do not see that yet
So, let us give it a space and let us put in a g-o-o.
Okay, it is not coming up; it might be blocked but let us give it a quick check.
Google Voice, there we go.
I probably should have typed "Google Voice" instead of "Voice Google". Anyways, it is going to be alright.
So, what we are going to do is tap on the actual Google Voice icon and that will take us to Google Voice and we can see any details or features or other items from it that we would like to see okay?
In my case I have already downloaded it previously on an older iPhone.
So, I am going to tap on this little cloud arrow icon here. In your case, you probably will have an install button instead of a little cloud - it is the same thing. Just give it a single tap.
It will start the circle spinning and your download will begin.
We will come back in - well, actually, normally I would step away for a second but this appears to be downloading at a blazingly fast bazillion miles an hour.
Well, that was until I said something. Oh here we go, it is almost done.
Okay, it is done.
Give it a minute to install or a second in this case and then you will have the option to open it. Note that Google Voice will also appear on your home screens now. It will not appear on the first home screen but it will appear on any of the other home screens in the first available space.Anyways, a quick tap. Let us open this.
Google Voice would like to send you notifications.
Absolutely Google Voice, I will allow notifications. They are my favorite thing in the world.
So, Google Voice is actually a great app.
You get your phone numbers and all of your other fun and exciting stuff. We are going to go ahead and sign in. Let us tap on Sign in.
It can ask us to sign in with email and password.
Let me take care of that real quick. It is going to be off screen. Be right back.
So, we signed into Google Voice and we can select from our phones or we can add new phones if we would like to add new phones to the account.
Once you have tapped on the Google Voice icon, you chose your phone number and got it set up.
You will have a choice of your inbox,
the quick dial which lets you quickly dial contacts,
and the actual settings where you can change or modify details on the phone.
In order to SMS from the iPhone, you are going to need to have Hangouts installed and in order to get Hangouts installed, you are going to have to download that so we will have a separate tutorial on how to download, install and setup Hangouts.
For now, what we are going to do is get to our home screen and give home button a quick press.
It will take us back to the home screen, back to our screen where Google Voice was installed.
Now if we press the home button, it takes us back to the main home screen
and this concludes our tutorial on how to download, install and setup the Google Voice application on your iPhone 6.
Please make sure you check out our video on installing and setting up Hangouts and that way you can send SMSs as well. Thanks for choosing VisiHow, have a great day. Enjoy all those wonderful free phone calls you are going to be able to make anywhere in North America. Thanks. Bye-bye.
