Many of you who keep up with Google's Blog and read up on some info about the 3rd party App support like GrooVe IP and Talkatone were Google Voice users can use the apps for call-routing were very mad about Google ending it's 3rd party support on May 15 of this year I know I was but... I finally found a way to get a 3rd party app working with ease and I have been using it for a week now and it works perfect. I will tell you how I did it

The 1st step of getting this working is a Android phone or a Android tablet.

The app we will be using to get this working will be Vonage Mobile® you can get it here - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vonage.TimeToCall&hl=en

#1 Download Vonage Mobile from the Google Play

#2 Once the app is installed open it

#3 The app will ask you to login or create a new account, pick the new user

#4 Were it say pick your phone number put in your Google Voice number

#5 Next it will ask for you email, please use a real one or your account won't work

#6 Once you click next it will start making your account, when its done it will go to the verification part, it will say please put in the 6 something numbers they text you this does not work, instead click on the re send button and it will call your Google Voice number make sure you have a forward number link to you Google Voice so you can answer it

#7 Once they call you please write down the 6 digit number they gave you, then place the 6 numbers you were giving in the verification area.

#Once you are doen you now have a working 3rd party App you can use to call people with

If this help you please let me know and it would make me very happy If this didn't help in any way please let me know so I can add or change this.

Sadly Google Voice on the Android app does not have stock dialer, that's way a lot of poeple had 3rd party Apps that supported the stock dialer but Google ending it's 3rd party support on May 15 and let a lot of people mad because of this I found a new way to get a stock dialer back from the Vonage Mobile® app

I currently can. I use Google Voice normally, not using Voice Over IP, as an alternate phone number on my cell phone.

On the OP, how does this not require you to sign up for a paid Vonage account? Does Vonage let you use their cell phone service for free over WiFi?
