Thanks, this really clarified things up. I thought different. I can make free calls from Gmail Talk feature (from computer) - the phone icon next to the chat. Is this google voice? I tried to get do this from my Android browser it i did not work, and I thought Google voice app did this, but I guess I was wrong. I cannot even get Google voice app here in Canada. I've been searching everywhere for a VOIP app to make free calls. If this works - it'll perfect!

Yeah you can do it from your computer but not with your data on the phone. I would definitely recommend it, been using it for over a year now and it's a much simpler and robust solution compared to sipdroid or the like. Might take a few to find the optimal setting for your phone but once you do your good to go. And the dev has always been extremely responsive. I had it working on my Intercept back in the day, if it worked on that pos it should be able to run on any phone.

I have an LG Optimus Slider and have installed Groove IP and I'm using it with Wifi only. Great app, however, when I call someone, they tell me that they can hear their own voice echoing badly. Also, there is a long delay until I can hear the person's voice, or they can hear mine.

I tried playing with the settings but it didn't really help. Of course I don't really know what I'm doing. I couldn't find a way to reset Groove IP settings to default, so I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling it.

Any tips or help would be very much appreciated.

I have these same problems! What can we do to fix the echo and the delay?

There's a setting in the paid version that addresses echoes. Try playing around with that.

You can reset the app defaults by clearing the application data from the android settings. To remove echo you can enable either of the two echo canceler options from the GrooVe IP audio/echo settings. Or reduce the mic gain and speaker volume settings.

Delay can be caused by many things, most often is either the network or something on the device going into a power saving state. I'd recommend first enabling Keep Screen Alive as that should help if the issue is due to power saving.

Happy Holidays snrb. Long time no type! :-)

I recently got a Samsung Galaxy S2 T989 (T-Mobile), and I'm getting audio_mvs_suspend wakelock when GrooVeIP is loaded (newest version). This kills the battery rapidly.

I do not have Partial Wake Lock or High Perf checked. App is at defualt settings.

Have tried several ROMs and it shows up on all of them.

Running an ICS ROM.

Unfortunately don't know what to suggest. That's not a lock that is available via the sdk so it's not one the app can specifically request. Not sure what would cause it.

Rats. I did confirm that it's VoIP related so it has something to do with these VoIP apps. It never shows otherwise.

A reboot can get rid of it, a least temporarily, but it can come back after using Groove, etc. Sigh....

Thanks, and Happy Holidays!

Hi there! I'm using groove ip to turn my old out-of-service Incredible 2 into an apartment "land line" that's always on and charged. This has been super brilliant since my partner seems to constantly forget to charge his own phone. One quibble though: I use gchat often and although I have checked the keep-me-invisible option in groove ip, friends report I am green/available at all hours of the night. This is confusing for them and me since they sometimes send messages that I then miss. Is checking that option only useful if I manually set gchat to invisible before I sign out from my computer? I was under the impression that the app would maybe realize it was the only account signed in and flip over the status (otherwise why have an alternate away message setting? I have set that too but friends don't report seeing it). Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi,

We're looking into invisible status right now. It looks like the latest version may have a bug that's causing invisible status to be lost if the app resigns in. Soon as we have a fix we'll be posting an update.

Could someone explain to me in idiot speak why grooveip is needed to call using GV? I don't understand why GV would use minutes if you were to only use it. Why hasn't google integrated a solution into GV that is the same as Grooveip so you don't have to use two apps to route calls? thanks

Default bluetooth with GrooVe IP

I love your app; thanks for writing it. How can I use bluetooth headset with it? Right now, when I enable Bluetooth on the device, the phone app gets precedence on the bluetooth: trying to answer a GrooVeIP in-coming call instead switches to the phone app which then tries to make an out-going call. I don't want to use the phone app (carrier call) at all; only GrooVeIP The bluetooth button on GrooVeIP, which appears for an existing call, doesn't route audio/mic thru the bluetooth.

Nexus 4; Android 4.2.1, just purchased GrooVeIP Feb 8, 2013 version.

Hi,

It sounds like you have calls forwarded to your cell and to Google Chat. I'd recommend forwarding calls only to Google Chat so only GrooVe IP rings on an incoming call. Also you won't be able to answer or hangup with the bluetooth buttons. The android sdk doesn't expose those button presses to apps.

Default Groove IP loses network after 3 minutes or so.

I'm running Droid 2 android version 2.3.4 system version 4.5.621.A955.en.US.

When I call out and am on an active call, my call will drop around 3 minutes 43 seconds,like clockwork.

The app will automatically sign out of Google Voice... if I immediately try to open the app and "sign in" to Google Voice, I'm given a message that says the WIFI network is not available... then seconds later I can sign in, the app signs into Google Voice, and I'm good to go again.

I've run SpeedTest on my network and averages are between 625 to 650 kps download and 368 to 380 kps upload.

I've enabled audio processing, High Perf WIFI lock, Reconnect interval is set to Never, Keep Screen on is off, Partial Wake Lock is off.


What the heck is going on here? I certainly hope there is an answer to stop this or I'll regret my purchase...

Thanks in advance for your help on this.

EDIT NOTE: I realized I had a battery saver app that cuts out the internet connection... supposedly when it is inactive and it does a turn/on off every 15 minutes to check for email etc... perhaps your app does not send a signal that the internet is active for some reason that this batter saver app understands....

So... I disabled the app and will test to see if my problem goes away.... as it is after midnight, I'll have to wait till tomorrow to find out..... Will keep you posted.

Edit: Ignore this post. I was having a problem every now and then where my phone doesn't ring on an incoming call until the last second before sending the caller to voicemail and I asked about that. Then I found the setting about the Partial Wake Lock in the Troubleshooting settings. I will try that for awhile.

Thanks for all of your hard work, snrb!

I purchased the app a while back because I envisioned using it on my TF101 tablet and turning it into a phone. But I needed my cell phone anyway because people would call it directly.

But I played with it over the weekend on my cell phone and the call quality is so much better on wi-fi, plus they see my GV number which is what I want them to see.

But here's what I kept doing out of habit......hitting the physical "end call" button on my phone, which didn't end the GrooveIP call. Is there a way to make the "end call" button end the GrooveIP call?

Unfortunately not. Android doesn't pass certain button presses to an app. The physical dial, hang up, power and home buttons are not sent exposed to apps.

Default 911 calls

Curious about 911 calls. I bought a T-mobile Hot Spot device and now get a "4G" hot spot with my Nexus 7. Groove IP works great on wifi and almost as good on this wifi hotspot. I know Google doesn't support 911 calls, but if the call is going through T-mobile, will 911 work?

Google Voice doesn't support 911 calls. If you are using the app on a phone and you dial 911 from within the app, the app will send the call through the native phone system. If you are using the app on a tablet that doesn't have a native phone system then 911 will not work.

One more question. Any way to get rid of sounding like the GrooveIP call is coming from a cave? Not really an echo. My wife kept complaining about this, so I had her call me with my Nexus 7. The sound on the N7 is very clear and "normal", but the sound at our house (from the N7) sounds like the N7 is in a cave or large stadium (very hollow). Could it be a speakerphone thing since the N7 isn't really a phone? I tried mic gain from -3 to zero, no real change.

edit: Nevermind, I just installed Talkatone and my wife says there is no echo. Default settings and everything works. Sorry, been a fan of GrooveIP for a year or so. Hello-Goodbye.

Default Voice noise on Tablets

I have an issue that I have not found after reading the 28 pages.
I have A MyTouch phone. rooted stock ROM. Calls are crystal clear both ways on WiFi.
2 tablest, coby kyros 8024 rooted and mod rom also generic Chinese not rooted stock, both have terrible audio, sound like a wind tunnel.
Have done all the setting. Done all the Mic mods etc. etc. but nothing seems to cure it.
My internet is solid 800kbs download and 400kbs upload AT&T DSL, so that should not be an issue. As I said phone is perfect.

??? anyone have a clue??
Other than that this is a fantastic app.

Do you have a wired headset you can use to see if that makes any difference on the tablets? Also, I'd suggest first doing a clean install before any other troubleshooting. Uninstall the app, restart the device, then download and install the app.

Has anyone been able to get Groove to work with their vehicle's Bluetooth? When I try mine other people can hear me, but I'm unable to hear them.

Try increasing the bluetooth specific mic gain from the audio/echo settings. On some vehicles we've had to increase both the bluetooth speaker and mic volumes.

I have dual authentication with the gmail account I use for GrooveIP but now cannot log onto Google Voice through the GrooveIP app. Error tells me "The username or password is incorrect"? (LG Optimus V). Thanks!

You'll need to get an application specific password from Google. Go into your Google Account, select Security, then under Connected Applications and Sites select the Manage Access button.

As mentioned either get an application specific password for the app or use the OAuth sign in. With OAuth you won't have to manually enter the username or password.

These tablets typically only have a built in mic. and therefore are not hard wire headset capable. I did try it and this is confirmed.
Headset will only allow incoming audio, or playback of MP3's etc.
Phone works crystal clear, so I guess it is a Tablet related issue.
Thanks.

Exclamation Delay and rusty voice after move apps to sd partition.

Hi snrb,
Before moving many apps to SD card ext2 partition using Link2sd to save internal memory, my Gio 5560 was doing not too bad regarding echo, delay, broken voice...but now there is a long...delay, broken and rusty voice. Is there anything to do with moving apps to SD card? I have tried almost everything setting available from GrooveIP. Please help. Thanks a lot

Hi,

Moving apps to the sdcard lowers their priority. You can move things back and see if it improves anything. If nothing else has changed on the device or network that would be the first thing I'd suggest trying.

I hate to be "that guy" - but I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing wrong here. I have absolutely no problems dialing out, but when receiving calls it seems I'm only receiving them via Google Voice through my native dialer. I've made sure to have GrooVe IP Lite running, enabled the Partial Wakelock option and have tested the Accept Call Time at default, 15 & 25 settings... though I'm still receiving calls as if someone is calling my mobile number. Is this correct? I was under the assumption calls should be received within the GrooVe IP app and be displayed in the Recents menu within it. My received calls are only displayed in the native dialer app. Any help is appreciated.

Edit: My apologies, I hadn't properly forwarded calls to Google Chat. Thanks for the great app!

Hi,

I'd recommend enabling Keep Screen On and the Basic Echo canceler from the app settings to see if that helps. Keep Screen On is in the troubleshooting settings. The basic echo canceler is in the audio/echo settings.

SNRB, thank you for creating GrooVe IP & GrooVe IP Lite :-)

Just d/l'd Lite version this afternoon as a test and although I've only used it so far for roughly four test calls (2 outgoing, 2 incoming to/from various cell and land lines), I only experienced call quality issues with the first call. After tweaking the basic settings (volume & echo), subsequent calls were 95% AOK and everyone I spoke with said they could hear me without noticeable VOIP delay or feedback/echo.

I'll post again when I've made more calls + calls away from my home network. The Acid Test: will calls via Starbucks' Notoriously Waffle-y WiFi work? Back to you soon!

You can receive calls as long as you have a Google Voice phone number. Just forward calls to Google Chat in your Google Voice account.

Howdy snrb! Long time no chat.

I have a new one for you. Using a ported 4.3 GPE ROM on my Samsung Galaxy S4 SGH-M919 (T-Mobile), I'm getting an odd wakelock at times using Groove. Note that it is not all the time, but I have found Groove to be the cause.

The kernel WL is "PowerManagerService.Wakelocks". The length of the WL and time coincide with Groove "Partial Wakelock", and when I exit Groove and restart, the WL goes away....for awhile. It may have to do with changing from wifi to 4/G. Something seems to be getting stuck.

I know that this wake lock is simply a catch-all for several different ones, but Partial Wakelocks shows Groove as the culprit. Fwiw, I'm using Better Battery Stats.

I do have Partial Wake Lock checked in Settings (was missing calls), but this WL shows up regardless, and is not constant.

Other than this problem, Groove is the only VoIP app that I have found that works properly on 4.3.

Thoughts? Ideas?

I hope all is well with you!

~~

Edit: Also. Groove is not switching to 4/G from wifi. I get an "x" in Groove. I then have to restart Groove.

Interested in the answer to the above too. I've had same wakelock running much longer than previous to 4.3 update (on Nexus 7).

1.4.0.4 should fix issues with the app stopping suddenly or signing out and not signing back in with android 4.3. If you have the partial wake lock setting enabled in the app it will request the wake lock when the app starts and release it when the app stops. But the OS will decide when it's actually needed.

1. Oh, good. I've had that happen too.

2. I don't quite understand this. The wl will run as long as the app is running?? I mean, I understand that's what allows incoming calls not to be missed, but it seems to get stuck under certain conditions. For instance, when I leave wifi (to 4G) the wl begins, then when I rejoin wifi the wl continues and drains the battery faster. Until I leave wifi there is no significant wl. Then the only way to stop the wl is to restart the app.

Argh, it's difficult to explain this in text!

Sorry for being a dunderhead. I've attached some screen shots of what happens when I leave wifi, which is one example of when the wakelocks begin. Notice on the "Other" screen that deep sleep is zero. So when the wl occurs the phone will not deep sleep. I would not think this should happen. Note that no calls were placed or received during that 1.8hr time.

If you have the partial wake lock setting enabled in GrooVe IP, the app will request the Partial Wake Lock. That lock prevents the device from going into a deep sleep. I'd recommend not using it if you don't need it because it will drastically increase the battery usage. The OS handles the actual operation of the lock. All the app does is request/release the lock when the app starts/stops IF you have the setting enabled.

I'd really recommend not using it unless you need it. You really shouldn't need it on any recent or Nexus device. Just make sure that WiFi is set to stay connected always (if you're using WiFi).
