Using Groove IP app with google voice
As many of you know google recently made it possible for us to download google voice, only to find out all it does is let you text. I know just another text app. lovely. I had been checking out this Groove IP app that allows you to use your google voice number and make calls. Well I let it go thinking I wasn't going to pay 5 bucks for GrooveIP, seemed a bit much. Well while searching on amazon app store they have it for 1.99. So what the hell. I am using a wifi only xoom. I can make calls over it using my GV. But the directions were a bit fuzzy as how to receive calls. When I called my GV number from another phone it would go straight to GV voicemail. Now to make this work you have to open GV on your computer and go to settings.
Now this is in your browser on your computer. Then once in settings make sure that "Forward to Google Chat" box is checked and go to the bottom of the page and click save.
Now you can receive calls on your xoom using this 1.99 app.

Oh yeah, I use groove IP on my xoom to call fro Egypt to Louisiana for free all the time. Best 5 bucks I've spent in a long time
That is so awesome!! Thank you. I hesitated paying 5 bucks cuz I'm so cheap, but 1.99 is a steal. The tutorial was perfect too. Now I can go to Vancouver BC next week and make and receive calls back to the states without paying the Canadian roaming charges or buying a phone card.
Thanks again. Works like a charm.
you're welcome. yeah i tried to go to settings in google mail, it just wouldn't let me tap on settings on the drop down. i wasn't using the mobile site on google. this using maxthon browser or dolphin.
Was Groove IP removed from GMarket and Amazon Market?
Its in the amazon store. Not sure about the market.
~without that little voice in your head,
you wouldn't be able to read this~
Thankyou. I brain farted my searching.
