Google Voice

Please restore Google Voice integration for Acrobits Softphone.

I already know that Google Voice made some changes that interrupted the feature some time ago. But it would be good if Acrobits were to work to restore interoperability with one of the world's leading internet telephony service providers. Surely there is programming workaround to restore this.

I'm a paid user, and (last I checked) participating in the beta version.

Hello,

I'm sorry, this is unlikely to change.

Google has made it clear they want you to use their apps (or your browser) for their services.
Even if we got it working now, there is nothing to say they wouldn't break it again in a month.

To be clear, this only means you can't initialise GoogleVoice calls from the app. Any SIP account that is linked to GoogleVoice should work with the app as normal otherwise.

Thanks, I was afraid that was going to be the answer. I appreciate the prompt and straightforwardly response.
