    Google Voice App No Longer Works

    I was using Google Voice to make my second phone look like my ProjectFi phone to callers. I noticed with the latest upgrade, the app no longer works.

    I was afraid that might be the case.

    One of the great features of Fi was the ability to continue to use GV on other phones.

    Yes this is a PITA, with really no good reason why.

    You need to go back to GV 0.4.7.10, which you can get from apkmirror.

    The GV app will not let you login in to the google account associated with Project Fi, so you cannot use it at all.

    The one thing I want to use it for is so that I can use the native voice on any of my phones and have the caller ID shows my Project Fi number. It is NOT incompatible, the old app works fine!

    Google must be getting pushback from T-Mobile (the owner of the Project Fi number) for spoofing the number, or Project Fi will be rolling out something else that would make it incompatible.

    I think what you want to use rather than the GV app is the "Hangouts Dialer" app, if you're a Project Fi subscriber. GV and Hangouts aren't the same thing anymore, and there is increasing divergence between the two as Google works on their business-oriented Hangouts products. The Hangouts Dialer app will initiate both voice calls and Hangouts/SMS messages if you're on Fi.
    I'll try the first of anything, but I won't depend on it.

    Just so there's no confusion... You can't use the Hangouts Dialer app without the Hangouts app. The Hangouts Dialer app just adds the outgoing call capability to Hangouts SMS/incoming call capability.

    Looking for older Google Voice iOS version

    I successfully downloaded an older Google Voice Android version from the apkmirror website.

    Can anyone direct me to where I can get an older Google Voice iOS version?

    Thanks
