BigPhone: Google Voice for Mac

Tired of accessing your Google Voice account through your desktop?  Well, there’s a full-fledged app available for your mac that allows you to access Google Voice straight through your menu bar!  Say hello to BigPhone.

Google Voice is a service that allows you to unify all of your telephones with one number.  If someone calls your Google Voice number, it will ring whatever phones you have connected to it.  That means your cell phone, home phone, and work phone can all ring at the same time if you have your settings set to do so.  Google Voice also includes free voice mail which is transcribed for easy access, and texting.  Check out two of our previous articles on the Google Voice iOS app.

Setup is simple, once opened, BigPhone will prompt you to enter in your google account information.  This is your email address and password.  After that you’re ready to go!

BigPhone is centralized around its menu bar menu.  Click on it to go straight to your inbox, or quickly strike up a new conversation with its “New Text Message” menu item.  Further down the menu, BigPhone will also show you the last couple conversations or messages in your inbox for easy access.

Texting with BigPhone is very simple and is done in a familiar “iChat-esque” fashion.  If your Google Voice number gets a text, it automatically pops up on your screen.  You then can quickly reply and get back to work.

BigPhone does a good job of blending in with the rest of the OS.  It’s only there when you want it to be.  Although it looks like you can’t place any calls with the app, texting is a snap and is much easier to do with your mac’s keyboard.  To find out more and to see a quick screen cast of BigPhone in use, go to  Or check it out in the Mac App Store here.  BigPhone is $3.99 USD.
