How to Set Google Voice Account to Get Everything on Gmail?

In my previous tutorial I shared how to get Google voice Account outside U.S.A and how to get permanent Incoming U.S.A number now for all who used above two tutorials to get their Google voice account, here are few settings which you should do to receive all Google voice calls and SMS on your Gmail account.

I believe by now you have your Google voice account set up and you have a Google voice number where we can call you. Now all you need to do is, login to your Google voice account and click on Settings> Voice settings at the top right.

Forward Phone call to Gmail:


First setting which you will be configuring is forwarding all your calls to your Gtalk Id. This way when ever someone will give you a call on your Google voice number, you will receive call on your Gtalk.

Under Phones settings, select forwards to Google chat.

VoiceMail and SMS forwarding:


Next setting is to receive an Email alert on your Email account when ever you receive a SMS on your Google Voice account and receive an Email alert for Voice mails.

Under Voicemail and text settings select Email this message to {email address} and under text forwarding select Forward this messages to my Email.

Missed Call alert:

You can also set missed call alert from Calls setting. Select the last option under calls settings which says Send missed calls to my email and click on save.

Now you are all set with your Google voice account. Don’t forget to join us on Twitter @callingallgeeks and on our Facebook fan page to receive more such updates.
