Download: Google Voice for the Motorola XOOM

The Android community comes through yet again.  Actually, I should really change that to say, “XDA comes through again!”  For those of you with a Motorola XOOM that have been wanting Google Voice since day 1 and have somehow been living without it, you are now in luck.  After some really spotty instructions on how to get it working through a Titanium Backup were released over the weekend that had a 1% success rate, and 110% frustration rate, most of us had given up.  And then this morning, member sangreal06 modified a GV apk which works flawlessly and released it to the masses.

Download:  gv.4.2.13.fixed.apk (mirror)

To set up, you’ll need to add your XOOM’s phone number to your GV account and then walk-through the on-device set up.

  • KevParlee

     I could not get past “setup voicemail” im on wifi xoom

  • Nicksmith1953

    Everytime I try to text it force closes! What’s the deal?

  • BigDaddyEllison

    This works great on my Xoom!!!! Now if Google would just let me send/receive calls I would be set. Still it is nice to be able to keep an eye on my Voice in-box while in meetings. I can be reading voice mail while it looks like I am taking notes.

    phone number: Settings->About Tablet->Status use MDN (Mobile Directory Number) as your number. Add it in gVoice online first. Go back to the beginning of the gVoice install and let it log you back in.

      I don’t remember the exact steps I used to install Google Voice on my Cruz Reader, but I don’t remember having a problem with “verifying my number”. Seems like I just told it the number was my other phone and it seems to work.

    This method seems to work pretty well. Log in to google voice and add your tablet’s number which can be found in Settings>About Tablet>Status. It will try to verify from you browser, but just hang up. Then open google voice app on your xoom and go through the setup it won’t even ask you for your xoom’s number because it already knows it and you can move on to your inbox. After everything is setup, go back to your browser and delete the xoom number. Voila the app still works for text.

            Never mind then. That is weird. Try reinstalling it i guess.

    Google Voice works on my Cruz Reader (R101), so I am not sure what the problem is on a Xoom. Can’t make calls, of course, but I can handle SMS and voice mail. Granted I have a hacked version of the firmware with Market support on it…

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1501095082 Chris Hughes

    This is cool..so I’m not trying to bash on anything. But if you can’t make calls then how is this any different than going to google.com/voice?

    The website allows you to send texts, you can get notifications of texts via email.

    So why all the hassle duct taping this app together?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1501095082 Chris Hughes

      Heck…if you really want to you can even call people from the website (it dials your phone first)

    Awesome

  • Jbrez2468

    K. What am I missing ??? I installed did the log in and when I hit menu there is no compose option, just balance settings refresh labels ..feeling dumb help please

  • Kkinderen

    SMS only or VoIP also?

  • Anonymous

    Considering I can’t receive a phone call or a text SMS from the Xoom “phone” I don’t see how to use this….

    That said I’m VERY frustrated at the way the Xoom and Verizon set’s up their accounts. I can’t set up an verizonwireless.com account for the xoom because it wanted to send a SMS to the “phone” and since the xoom can’t get texts, I’m locked out.

      Wait (and hope) for LTE upgrade to addresses this.

      • Anonymous

        Probably.. but all they really need to do is alter the activation process. If I’m using there “My Verizon” app, I’m sure there is a way to verify what “phone number” the current device has.

      I had the exact same problem as you did and this is how to create a myverizon account.

      First you need to call Verizon and have them de-register the current myverizon account (not your service just the account online)

      They’ll then ask you to create a new account.

      You’ll get as far as picking a user name but it will ask for the temp password (the password they keep trying to text message you….even though they say it’s free and you can’t technically receive it, i was charged for six text messages)

      It tells you the only way to get that password is through sms, which is not true.

      Have the verizon rep mail (they can’t e-mail or tell you over the phone for security reasons, they have to mail it to the billing address on file) you a temporary password (i got mine in two business days)

      Once you get your temp password, you type in your username and the temp password and then you can create a new password, and presto, you have a myverizon account.

    OH SWEET!!

  • Interstellarmind

    does this mean i could make phone calls on the xoom (without having vz service activated)?

    • http://twitter.com/zaiger zaiger

      As long as Sipdroid and Gvoice callback work with the Xoom, then yes. Google voice does not support internet calling on it’s own.

  • Jroth5714

    Kellex can you explain setup and how to make calls if you do not have Verizon Service, I have an Number assigned but dunno if I will be charged if I put that without the service anymore

  • Xhaxol

    U don’t needtoactivate ur xoom to get this to work. I just used my Droid 2 number and it works just fine. I did select the do not use Google voice tomake calls option and smiled the voicemail thing. The txt work fine. The notifications don’t seem to work though. Still its nice to be able to txt from my xoom.

  • Shocku992

    Noob question, how do you know your XOOM’s number?

    • Shocku992

      Never mind, Got it. For anyone looking, it’s under settings, about tablet, status, MDN

  • http://twitter.com/milou6 Christian Aldridge

    Without an assigned phone number for your xoom can you still set it up?

    • DroidzFX

      just pick the number assigned to your cell phone. Thats what i did works fine. skip voicemail set up

      I couldn’t either, so I went back into Voice and it was working fine. No need to provide your Xoom number.

  • Cclaybern

    Is it just sms or can you voice as well with VOIP? Also does it require activation?

    I wonder if this would work on the Nook..

    • Snerdlybosco

      I have the Market version working on the Nook Color.

    • Anonymous

      Omg, that would be so amazing. And the phone interface would probably suit the 7″ Nook better as well.

  • Jednc

    I have not activated the 3G service for my xoom (probably will not). Is it possible to use Google Voice without activating? If so, how?

      Nope, but you can only text. Not to say that you can make calls if you do activate the service.
