The VoIP app for iOS and Android allows you to easily and seamlessly connect out of network calls and text messages to your phone, tablet or computer.
VoIP apps can also be used for the following outbound calls and texts to other mobile devices, such as your PC, Mac or desktop computer.
How to configure an app for outbound text messages and voicemail in the app If you’re looking to connect text messages, call outs and voicemails with outbound services like voicemail or outbound email, you’ll need to create an app in the Google Play Store.
This article provides step-by-step instructions on how to do this.
When you create an outbound app, it’ll be added to your Google Play app list, so you can easily install it and start using it.
Follow these steps to get started.
If you already have an app on your device, follow these steps on creating an out-of-network call or text message: Go to Settings > Accounts > Add Apps > Call and text services > Add an out of networks service.
Select the out of services you want to add.
Select Create an app and enter a name.
Choose a provider from the list, then click Create.
In the following screen, enter your account information and click Add.
Enter your account name and password.
The Google Play service provider will be the one you select, and it will appear in the list.
When the dialog box asks you to select a name for your out-bound app (and enter the name you want in the text field, if prompted), select ‘Outbound’.
When the application is ready, click Install to install it.
You’ll see a notification that an app has been added to the Google App Store.
To get started, simply download the app, then follow these step-to-step steps to create and install the app: Select the phone number you want the outbound service to contact.
Click Add to create the app.
In a pop-up window, select the out-network service provider that you want your app to use.
A notification will appear that your app has a new name.
Your outbound phone number will be displayed in the voicemail, call and text area of the app’s app.
Note: If you have multiple providers installed on your phone and you choose to create multiple apps, each of them will be assigned a unique app name.
For example, if you have a text service called SMS Outbound, and a call service called Text Outbound on your other devices, you might want to create a separate app for each of these services.
When your app is installed, it will be automatically launched and you can open it from your app drawer.
To add an outof network phone number, you need to first add it to your app’s settings.
In Settings > Voice Services > Phone, enter the phone that you wish to add a new service to.
You can use a phone number that’s already on your Google account, or create a new phone number using the Google Search API.
To create a unique phone number for an app, select Add and enter the full name, or name of the provider, if available.
Click Edit to add the service to the app settings.
Click Apply to confirm that the new service has been assigned.
Your phone number is now listed in the VoIP and call out area of your app.
To check that your service is currently working, click Settings > Phone to make sure that your outbound call and message are in working order.
To find out if your service has started or is about to start, open the app in a browser and follow the steps on the screen.
You should see your outof networks service listed under the Dialer and Text Message tab.
Click on it to confirm.
If your service isn’t showing up, you can change its location by clicking the Settings icon in the upper-left corner of the screen, then clicking on the Location icon at the top of the list of all the locations you wish the service listed.
This location can be found by going to Settings and tapping the + symbol.
You will also see a confirmation that the service is active.
To delete the service, go to Settings -> Voice Services -> Delete, and remove the service.
To switch between your existing and new services, go back to the Dialers and Text Messages tab.
Go back to your service and select the new out of contacts and texts.
To change your existing service, select Settings -> Phone, and enter your phone number.
Incoming calls and messages will be routed to your new service.
