Google Voice

Because us old guys don't remember over long periods of time…

First, turn Voice calling options:

  1. On your Android device, open the Voice app Google Voice.
  2. At the top left, tap Menu Menu and then Settings.
  3. Under Calls, turn on Incoming call options.

Record a call

Note: All participants must be on the call before you can start recording.

  1. Answer a call to your Google Voice number.
  2. To start recording, tap 4. All participants hear an announcement that the recording has begun.
  3. To stop recording, tap 4. All participants hear an announcement that the recording has ended.
  4. Hanging up also ends the recording.

You can find your recordings in the Voicemail tab.

Switch phones during a call

  1. Answer a call to your Google Voice number.
  2. Tap Star (*). The other phones that are set up to take your Google Voice calls will ring.
  3. Pick up the call on the phone you want to use.

How to make the conference call

Prior to the call, you will need to inform all your participants that they should call you on your Google Voice number at the agreed time. You first enter into a phone conversation with one of your participants, by either having them call you or you call them, through Google Voice.

Once you're on the call, you can add the other participants when they dial in. You will be alerted when you have an incoming call. To accept other calls, press 5 after hearing a message about starting a conference call.

You have the option of recording a conference call now in Google Voice (originally this was not available on the service). You must first turn on Incoming call options under Settings > Calls.
