Pricing winner:
Google Voice

While it certainly lacks some business-oriented features, Google Voice simply can’t be beat when it comes to affordability. 

Features: Which Providers Powers Your System Better?

Google Voice

Google Voice is primarily meant for either personal use or business use on a very small scale. For example, it doesn’t offer any extensions at all. This can be an issue for small business owners, as extensions are a convenient way to connect callers to different departments and personnel.

Grasshopper

Grasshopper offers extensions for all of its plans — 3 in its Solo tier, 6 in its Partner tier and an unlimited number of extensions in its Small Business tier.

Features winner:
Grasshopper

Grasshopper takes the cake when it comes to features. Things like automated attendants and customizable hold music really set it apart from Google Voice.

Customer Satisfaction: Which Service Has the Happiest Customers?

Google Voice

According to reviews on Capterra’s platform, Google Voice has an overall customer satisfaction score of 4.5 out of 5. Google Voice customers appreciated the privacy afforded to them by the platform (that is, their ability to create a separate, local phone number for their business).

Grasshopper

Grasshopper, meanwhile, has an overall score of 4.4 out of 5. Grasshopper customers loved that they were able to customize hold music and voicemail messages

Customer Satisfaction winner: Grasshopper

While both services garnered mostly positive ratings on Capterra, Grasshopper had more consistent ratings across the board and therefore comes out on top regarding Customer Satisfaction. 

In order to determine which solution performed better with regard to customer satisfaction, we explored ratings and reviews on established portals — G2 and Capterra.

How CloudTalk compares to Google Voice and Grasshopper

While Google Voice offers 17 features and Grasshopper offers 16, we have you covered with 70 tools that can adapt to all of your business’ needs.

Google Voice customers lack the sort of advanced analytics offered by CloudTalk. For example with Custom reporting, you can filter any data you need within seconds. Search by agent, phone number, queue, timeframe, etc.


Grasshopper customers often complain about a lack of features. CloudTalk certainly fills this void. With a robust set of call management capabilities and cutting-edge features like click-to-call, your business communication will be far from boring.

Pricing: Transparent memberships for
businesses of any size

CloudTalk may be on the more expensive side — with plans ranging between $25 and $50 user/month paid annually — yet we offer high-end services that clearly demonstrate our value. CloudTalk offers a fully customizable plan, so you can pay only for what you need.
