Verifying your new number is an important part of setting up your account. It allows you to personalize the settings, including voice recognition, and make sure that your account is secure. There are a few key steps to follow:
- Verify your number:
- Dial the verification number that Google sends to your phone
- Enter the verification number that Google gives you
- Listen to the automated message to complete the verification process

Link Your Number to Your Account
To link your number to your account, simply dial the number you’d like to connect and follow the prompts. Once you’re connected, you’ll have the ability to manage your settings and troubleshoot any issues that come up.
Google Voice offers a convenient dashboard that makes it easy to keep track of your calls and messages. From this dashboard, you can review and manage your account, including your phone numbers, contacts, and voicemail. You can also add or remove numbers from your account and customize your preferences.
Additionally, Google Voice allows you to block unwanted calls or messages and filter out spam. This way, you can have full control over your communications and ensure that your calls and messages are managed according to your preferences.
Unlink Your Old Number
If you’d like to unlink an old number from your account, you can easily do so by accessing your settings. This must be done before attempting to link a new phone number, as the activation process requires that only one number is associated with the account.
It’s important to make sure that the phone you’re attempting to link is compatible with Google Voice, otherwise, the process won’t work. The process is simple and straightforward, so you should have no problem unlinking your old number and activating a new one.
Just make sure that the phone you want to link is compatible with Google Voice, and you won’t have any issues.
