    I have an american Number, but currently out of the country. Can I use this in order to receive calls on my phone? Meaning, anyone in the US can call me and the call will be forwarded to Google Voice or Groove IP?
    Do I get a virtual number so anyone can call?

    Thanks ahead.

      Google Voice requires USA phone number which the website will verify for the authentication of your Google Voice account. So it clearly means it will work in United States only.
