I have loaded this App and it works for local calls. I have the Google Voice set up right, I assume. But I can't make internatonal calls because I don't have any credits. I set up Google Voice a long time ago on my phone and stopped it because I couldn't figure out how to make it work. I must have screwed something up because I can't figure out how to buy credits from my Nexus 7. Do I need to configure a phone before it will work on the Nexus 7? I would like to try this for my wife to call the Philippines but I can't figure it out. I have Googled the hell out of this question and none of the options appear for my account. If this is a redundant post, please point me to the right thread.

Go to https://www.google.com/voice#billing. Log in to your account if it doesn't log you in automatically. Click the "Add $10.00 credit" link. You'll need a Google Wallet account and a credit card registered with that account, which you likely already have if you've purchased from the Play Store.

Google Voice does work as a Voip service. I use it over wifi with GrooveIP anytime we visit the in laws. I have absolutely no cell service there. It uses your Google Voice number instead of cellular.
If the broadband connection is stable, it works fantastic.
And yes, groove IP has its own dialer.

My last sentence was about making calls via Google voice in nexus 7. I dont think you will be able to make calls via google voice in nexus 7 because there is no in build dialer in GVoice.
and about Groove Ip I agree with you that you can make calls with it. I am not denying that.
I think Op was asking more about making calls using Google Voice in nexus 7

No big deal though. In the end, I think I answered his question, but I'm not sure because we haven't heard back from him yet!
