Google Voice vs Grasshopper
Pricing: Which Service Fits Your Budget?
Google Voice offers a 3-tiered pricing system, starting with its $10-per-month “Starter” package and scaling up towards its $30-per-month “Premier” package.
Grasshopper, meanwhile, has monthly plans ranging in price from $26 at the cheapest and $80 at the most expensive.
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 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 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.
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?
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, 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.

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.
