We're going to get one from Google Voice Official App (iOS) - Google Voice Official App (Android) - Talkatone (iOS and Android) How do you answer calls? The Google Voice app doesn't do that. Instead, use Talkatone to make and receive calls. Alternatively, you can use Skype to make and receive calls. You’ll need to get a Skype Online number which is not free, but very useful overall.
