"We switched over from Google Voice and OpenPhone's UI is so much more thoughtful and geared toward productivity. We're loving the new support for multiple users on our team, how easy it is to add additional phone numbers, and the new web / Android apps."

"I first signed up for OpenPhone to get off of Google Voice for their poor call quality and buggy app. I was instantly happy with my decision back then because OpenPhone just worked. Fast forward to today; I could not be happier with my decision to move to OpenPhone. Reliability has remained exceptional, but more importantly, the feature set available to my business now far outweighs that of Google Voice."

Founder and CEO @ Real Estate Optics
"After using Google Voice, I appreciate that OpenPhone is made specifically for business. I enjoy that every interaction with a customer is available in a single thread. Google Voice has call history, voicemail, and messages spread out across 3 different tabs, making it hard to stay on top of things. I love the feature set (recording calls, the custom way of setting up a contact, the way the mobile app is slick and intuitive) of OpenPhone and the constant improvements. It's great that my business phone provider is growing with me."

The Google Voice alternative made for businesses

The modern phone platform

  • See all communication in one thread: Google Voice spreads calls, messages, and voicemail across three different inboxes. OpenPhone has this all in one thread.

  • Set business hours: Add business hours so after-hour calls go to a dedicated after-hours voice greeting.

  • Streamline incoming calls: Missing out on auto-attendant or call forwarding options with Google Voice? OpenPhone lets you provide a seamless experience.

Shared numbers for your team

  • Work together as a team: OpenPhone lets your team call and text from a single number. Your team can call from the same number at the same time.

  • Stay on top of all communication: Using OpenPhone, you can see the sender for each call and message. You can also see in real time when someone is typing.

  • Get multiple numbers: Google Voice lets you have one US number. OpenPhone gives you the option to have many local (US & Canada) or toll-free numbers.
