OBIHAI originally announced that after May 2014 OBI devices would no longer support Google Voice. In November 2014 OBIHAI announced that they now officially support Google Voice. I am still using my OBI100 with Google Voice. Some users have complained that the phone connected to the OBI device does not ring on incoming calls with Google Voice. To get the ring on incoming calls you must forward calls to Google Chat. Sign in to your Google Voice account Click on SETTINGS (The gear icon at the top right of the page.) Under "Forward calls to:" Check the box next to Google Chat. Your phone will now ring on incoming calls. I have been using the OBI100 with Google Voice for several years and it has been working flawlessly. I like that you can forward calls to several phones so that if you're not near the phone connected to your OBI device it will automatically ring another phone. I have mine set to forward calls to my cell phone. It's great, I never miss acall.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

i bought the obihai100 for google voice and once i got it programmwd, it works awesomely! much,much better then any other VOIP service adapter that i have ever used. the calls are very clear with no static or crackling. i used a plain old corded phone and the basic set up is really SIMPLE. the only issue i had was trying to set up my google voice accout but you dont have to have google voice to use this product. obi has their own version of VOIP called obitalk and you can set up an account with them as well for free calls anywhere. i highly reccomend this product.

Folks have mentioned using it to make free calls with Google Voice. Note though if you have no land line you will have no real 911 functionality through GV. You can set that up at Anveo in the #2 slot. It's only $.80 a month for e911 that is registered to your address. I also chose an Aveo Chicago phone number that allows 40 minutes/day incoming calls and outbound calls in the US cost 1¢ a minute for a total of $1.80/month. The Obi will connect when either of my numbers are called and I now have the peace of mind of e911 and a second provider as a backup.

This device is incredibly difficult to set up with Google Voice, even the instructions on the obi site don't match the Google Voice pages. For example I have no "Call Phone" icon on my gmail page, until I looked for days and found an obscure setting in gmail to use the legacy gmail interface. But thats not the worst of it, this product only works to place phone calls it will not ring your phone if you call your GV number, all incoming calls from people go directly to Google Voice voice mail. I am not happy at all with this purchase, and the support on the OBi100 web site is non-existent. I asked how to get the phone to ring with incoming calls on their support forum and 100 people read my post but nobody is helping. I really need a land line and was hoping this would be good, it has instead turned into a huge time-wasting nightmare trying to get it to work. It is NOT easy to set up and I am a technical person.

  • A. On 9/11/14 OBIHAI announced that the OBI VOiP adapters now officially support Google Voice. Today is 7/14/15 and my OBI100 is still working with Google Voice.

  • A. I heard of that, too. But it does not appear to be the case. Even if Google does that, It is still worth the money paying for this Obi100 device if I get to use it for 1 year.

  • A. yeah but somehow (i'm not THAT technical), you can still use a google voice number and take advantage of multiple ringing patterns. for instance, i use phone power with it, which cost me 34.95 a year. i got emergency 911 features with it too. and still use my google voice number with it, and have it ring 3 phones

  • A. Google voice is not ending. Google announced they will stop using xmpp which is used by Obi ata to connect to Google. The Obi ata can be used with many other sip services.

  • A. Yes. Google Sets the Date for the End of XMPP with Google Voice Recently Google announced the end of support for XMPP based calling with Google Voice. This will happen on May 15, 2014 – that’s over 6 months from today. Since your OBi device uses XMPP to communicate with Google servers, the end of support will directly impact how your OBi device can be used with your Gmail account and its associated Google Voice phone number. Unfortunately, you will no longer be able to use the Google Voice communication service to make calls using the phone connected to your OBi device. Also, the ability to receive calls to your Google Voice number, directly from Google’s service, will not be possible. http://blog.obihai.com/2013/10/important-message-about-google-voice.html

  • A. No, that is the great thing about the Obi. It does not need the computer to function once it's set up. I have a battery backup, similar to Walmart's "CyberPower 600VA / 340W Intelligent LCD Battery Backup UPS" that the Obi and my cable modem is plugged into. Even if my power goes out I still have phone service, plus it gives me surge protection.
