    Default Best VoIP

    Looking for the general consensus on the best VoIP app. I've been using Groove, but I hate the echo.

    Spare Phone seems to be very well liked based on Google Play reviews. Less echo than GrooveIP per most user reports.

    This is the one I just bought. I have no echo and less delay than Talkatone so far. I need to test it out some more. I no longer use GrooveIP. They have gone downhill since last year.

    My vote goes to Talkatone Premium. To be sure, Talkatone has a free version, and it works in line with Groove and Spare Phone. Talkatone Premium is the most expensive of Google Voice over VoIP options, at $20 a year, but last year, I got a promo which gave me six months of premium service free. I plan on renewing and paying the $20 when that period comes to an end. In my opinion, it's worth it.

    Both Groove IP and Spare Phone had echo problems, making a conversation over the handset nearly impossible if I didn't connect a earpiece (bluetooth or wired). Talkatone Premium's echo cancellation works the best, both over mobile data and wifi. Talkatone Premium also offers the option to set voice quality to high on both wifi and mobile data (as opposed to just the 'standard' option for Talkatone free). The Talkatone Android interface is kind of outdated and ugly, but I can deal with that.

    However, I should make a mention that if you are trying just to call and not receive calls, try the Vonage Mobile app, it's free. You can configure it to show your Google Voice number as the caller ID number, and I have really not seen anyone beat Vonage yet on the VoIP game. It allows 3000 minutes of free calling a month too.

    Google voice only available in US right? I used to use free app like Viber but the connection is terrible even with my fiber optic. i'm still looking but i found this site . There got a few providers comparison. Was considering Phone Power and Ringcentral.

    Don't know if you've enabled either of the echo canceler options in GrooVe IP. But the Basic Echo Canceler should remove echo. Echo happens when the mic picks up sound from the speaker. So you can also remove echo by reducing the speaker volume and/or mic volume.

    I'd be happy to help resolve whatever issues you've run into with GrooVe IP. We're constantly working on the app trying to improve it. There's usually a new release every other week or so.

    I might have spoken a little too quickly on Spare Phone. The echo I mentioned previously came from using different mic and speaker settings. I choose the VOIP setting for both, and now echo is basically gone. With the echo gone, I am kind of digging this app.

    I tried enabling echo cancellation with GrooVe IP. It removed some echo, but not completely. The adaptive echo canceler did not work at all. Bottom line, with Groove, those on the other end can still hear echo, which makes using the handset (rather than a earpiece) to conduct a conversation nearly impossible.

    By the way, does Groove IP adjust echo settings (when echo cancellation is turned on) to turn the speaker and/or mic volumes up or down? Because I have experienced calls that did not have much echo but the other person said my voice was too low for them to hear, and on occasion, I would find it difficult to hear them.

    The echo canceler does not modify volumes at all. Only tries to remove echo. You can also change the mic source in GrooVe IP to VoIP. It's in the troubleshooting settings. On a device that supports that it should use the device echo canceler.

    Have you tried out Awaaz? Transparent VoIP calling that automatically takes over outgoing calls if it can.



    Disclaimer: I'm the lead developer on the app. It's just been released and I think it's completely revolutionary! :-)

    Hi there, I have tried many VoIP Apps on Android here's go the list:
    Vox SIP, 3CXPhone, GrooVe IP, CSipSimple and Skype. Some of them are SIP based which also works well. But something that satisfied me most is Skype. It's little costly when you go to paid version but the best part is that you can find most of the contacts and you can make effective Voice and Video calls for free.

    Other than that if you are I advice you to try SIP based VoIP App like Vox SIP, Linephone, 3CXPhone etc. Again at certain extend it also depends on your location. Some services offer many bonus and free calls on specific location. So, go through all these Apps and find out which one is more suitable for you.

    For reference you can visit blog to detail information.

    I would recommend the mizudroid sip softphone for mizutech. It has the best voice quality so far among the apps i have used.
