Unlimited Free Calling/Texting Over Wifi From Iphone/Ipod Using Google Voice and Talkatone

Talkatone- Allows you to Make/Recieve Unlimited calls over Wifi or Data from Google Voice even when the app is in the background.

Official Google Voice App- Sends you text notifications and allows you to text back from within the app. However it doesn’t have the ability to make/recieve calls directly from the app. Instead forwards to your cell.

Here’s how to make both of those apps work together to enable Free Unlimited Incoming/Outgoing Calls and Texts over Wifi even when the apps are running in the background.

Download Talkatone and the Official Google Voice App from the app store. First sign into the Google Voice App. Go ahead and set up forwarding to a cell just to make it happy don’t worry we’ll change this later. Enable notifications. If it doesn’t prompt you they will be in Iphone settings under notifications.

Then login to google voice and change settings to forward calls to Google talk. Then go to Gmail and make a call from your web browser. My favorite testing number is the Rejection Hotline 773-509-5027.

Now sign into Talkatone. Click I have made Google voice call from Google Talk. To make a call double tap the contacts graphic at the top. The following menu will come up and you’ll be able to make a call by clicking VoIP Call. Now to try out the features.

Incoming Calls – Call your Google Voice Number. The call should ring in talkatone even while running in the background.

Incoming Texts – You will receive text notifications from the official Google Voice app.  As well as missed call and voicemail notifications.

Happy free Texting and phone calls.

  1. So I tried it, and I can’t get them to work simultaneously. It’s either free calls or free text. I get an error message when a called is sent to me while I’m signed in to the google app. When I sign out, it works. I get text straight to me using the google app, but … You get the deal.. Maybe I’m missing something? Please help. I’m trying to avoid having separate numbers for calling and texting

  2. I am having troubles text messaging with this app. It always takes me back where it says “NOTE: SMS messages to and from your Google……………..” and I do text numbers in the US and my Google voice number is set up, but I still can’t text.
