Do you want to know if the calls you make on Google Voice will show up on your phone bill? No, it doesn’t because Google Voice doesn’t use a phone number to make a call. Instead, they make and receive calls with your mobile data or Wi-Fi. 

Google Voice calls are a great way to reach people online, though you’ll have to get their phone numbers. When you make a call on the app, do Google Voice calls show up on the phone bill?

You can call your friend on the app, you just have to get their phone number on your contact list.

In this guide, you’ll learn whether calls on Google Voice show up on your phone bill. If you want to get the answer straight, we’ll explain it for you to understand.

Do Google Voice Calls Show Up On Your Phone Bill?

No, Google Voice calls don’t show up on your phone bill because all messages and calls are routed through their servers.

This call doesn’t pass through your network provider directly, and that’s why messages and calls are free, unlike regular SMS or phone calls.

Google Voice calls are not like your traditional call, which allows you to call a person directly with their phone number on the phone app.

But you still need their contact on Google Voice for you to be able to call them for free.

When you use mobile data, all you’ll see on your phone bill is the amount of data Snapchat uses.

But they’ll not show any information, just the amount of data you have used on the app.

Your provider could see the traffic from Google Voice if you use your mobile internet instead of WiFi, but nothing about it will show up on your phone bill.

What You Need To Know

If you are given the monthly phone bill, your provider won’t break down what you have been doing on Google Voice.

It will only show that you use internet data on social media, like Google Voice.

Since you are not directly calling a phone number, Google Voice calls will not be listed on your phone bill. Because you’re using the internet.

The only thing you’ll see on your phone bill is the amount of data Google Voice uses (charges will display as data usage).

There’s no info on the phone bill on what you’re doing on Google Voice. It only shows the amount of data the app used.

While if you’re using a Wi-Fi connection, you’ll not see any information about Google Voice on your phone bill. Because you didn’t access Google Voice with your cellular data.

How To Call Someone On Google Voice

Since you now know that calling a person on Google Voice doesn’t show on your phone bill, you can call as much as you like for free without anyone finding out the person you called.

Note: The more calls you make, the more data you’re consuming, and this will make you pay higher when the phone bill arrived.

You don’t necessarily need to be friends with the person on Google Voice, and you’ll still be able to make voice or video calls.

So here’s the step-by-step guide to making a call on Google Voice.

Step 1. Open Google Voice App

Open the Google Voice app on your Android or iPhone device. And then tap on the phone icon at the bottom left.

Step 2. Find The Contact To Call

Step 3: Make Google Voice Call (Voice & Video)

Once you find the person you want to call, tap on the contact’s name and then tap on Call (phone icon).

Conclusion

The only problem you will have is that you’ll still have to pay for it because it uses your internet data to make calls.

The fact the iPhone allows third-party apps call logs like Telegram, WhatsApp, and Snapchat to show up when you make a call on the app, doesn’t mean that the call will show up on the phone bill.
