Google Voice has a problem that prevented you from placing an outgoing call this afternoon.
Between 4:12 pm and 5:04 pm PT, “Customers affected by this issue may experience calls through Google Voice to fail.” In particular, outgoing callers heard the “number not in service” message.
Google claims that SMS/MMS messaging has not been affected, which is consistent with our testing.
The company reported at 5:27 pm that:
This free version is available only for US users. However, it’s also available in paid versions to Google Workspace in many countries: United States of America, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Austria, and Belgium.
- Voice can be tailored to your daily workflow. The familiar Google Workspace Admin console combines all aspects of number assignment, porting, and billing.
- Voice uses Google’s AI to save time and block spam calls (For help visit).
- Voicemails can also be automatically transcribed to text. Google Calendar and Google Meet integrations keep the attention on what’s most important.
- Voice can be used instantly, globally, and from any location with minimal administrative effort.
It can give employees a work number they can access across Android, iOS, and the web. This version can also be integrated into Gmail’s side panel. Google’s VoIP service is rarely offline in such a visible manner, except for today’s outage.
