GrooVe IP - Free Calls


Voice without Minutes!

Turn your Android device into a free phone. Get a free US phone number that will be able to receive calls from anywhere in the world. In addition, you will be able to make unlimited calls to US and Canadian phone numbers for free using Voice over IP (VoIP) technology. You get all of this without using any of your cellular minutes. GrooVe IP works on any android device, mobile phone or tablet, and allows you to make calls using the device’s data (WiFi or mobile data) connection. If you have a smartphone with Wi-Fi connectivity but no mobile plan, you can use this app to convert it to a free, full-featured working phone. If you are traveling overseas, you can take your device with you and make/receive calls for free on WiFi without paying any carrier roaming charges.

GrooVe IP has a separate dialer that can be used to make calls. Alternatively, the native dialer, call-log, contacts, and favorite functionality can be shared between the phone and app on a call-by-call basis.

Try our free Lite version before purchasing. Lite version has the same feature set except it has ads.

- Phone number allocation and backbone call termination is provided by Ring.To, a service of Bandwidth whose network and communications solutions also power other innovative services such as Google, Skype, Vonage, and many more.

- GrooVe IP uses 1.2 MB per minute during a call

- Text messaging is currently not supported. It will be added in a subsequent update to the app.

Special note for existing GrooVe IP for Google Voice users: GrooVe IP will no longer support Google Voice users from May 15, 2014. This is so because Google is discontinuing third party access to Google Voice on that date. We encourage all existing GrooVe IP for Google Voice users to switch to the new GrooVe IP service (based on Ring.To), the features of which are described above. If you wish to keep using your Google Voice phone number, you can either port it to Ring.To to work with GrooVe IP, or get a new number (from GrooVe IP) and forward your Google Voice calls to this new number. Happy Calling!

If you have an existing Ring.To account and phone number, you can use it now with GrooVe IP.

User reviews of GrooVe IP - Free Calls
The very best ap!
Nov 4, 2012
Front-end to Google Voice to allow VOIP calling from your Android device... with caveats. Not because of the app - its great - but because of variability in support between devices for things like Bluetooth. The app itself is exceptional.
Jul 6, 2012
Excellent app. Works as designed, the devs have put a lot of effort into it (there's lots of options and customization), and the devs are very responsive. I asked a non-trivial question via email and got a useful response back in less than 10 minutes.

Bought it Just waiting on the update. Doesn't sign in. Payed for it and it doesn't sign in anymore. Tried Hotspot Shield, doesn't fix it. The free one worked fine for the longest time, then after the last update doesn't work. This one worked right after I bought it, then won't sign in anymore. This new update doesn't fix it.
