Topic Wiki

Google Voice may save a number as a home number, and in that mode it will not allow you to forward messages. In order to change that there's an option in legacy site.

Google voice currently rings on my cellphone as a normal incoming call,

How can I set it up that I can see which incoming calls are from my google voice number
Go to Google voice's website go to legacy view (accessible from the menu) then go to settings (top right corner).

In the calls tab there is an option to set incoming caller ID as your Google voice number. (The problem with that is all calls will just show your Google number.)

  I'm not sure if it's a glitch or it's just not possible to be done, basically every time I make a call and add a second person to the call there's no way to hang up from one of them alone the only way is to either have the person on the other line to hang up or to hang up from both of them and call back the second person.

  For example if I call bank or something alike where they don't hang up they wait for you to hang up that means I have to hang up from both people I'm on the phone with and have to call him back yes it's not such a big deal but It'll be so much easier if I could just hang up from one, any ideas?

Works fine here, make sure your notifications are set to on/allowed in settings of hangouts app,  and volume is on if you want it to ring, as well as your app is up to date, and if needed to have a verification code sent to re-verify your number( it seems with the new update they took away that cranky ennoying step to keep your numbers active).
 Lastly you can try clear cache ,the data on the app.
  And last but not least make sure people are really calling you.

   You can play around with your phone yourself and use this free site to call yourself and see when you get it to work, good luck.

A friend of mine had the caller heard only silence while it rings on his end.

There's an ongoing bug/glitch which took some features away, which used to allow you to verify your number, which would allow you to set up on an account which had no Google voice number yet a number for outbound caller ID.
 Temporary fix would be to download an older version of GV using an apk file.

Why would it be any different from a regular phone call? you can use a auto redial app
