    LG Premier Pro Plus and Google Voice

    So got my LG Premier Pro Plus all setup. Everything works great except for GV app. The phone does not ring for incoming calls when the screen is locked. Rings fine if the screen is on. Data is always off. Seems like wifi goes off when the screen is locked.
    Anyone know how to keep the wifi on when the screen is off? My old Rebel 3 never had this issue.

    Looks like it is not a wifi issue. GV just won't ring through the lock screen.

    You might try excluding the GV app from battery optimization.

    Still the same.

    Wow. I wonder if the newest Google Voice app version simply isn't working properly?

    The GV app still rings from the lock screen on my Pixel 3a XL, but I don't use it full time, so I don't know how consistent it might be. I still use the Hangouts app instead.

    There are a number of issues with the GV app that are NOT present in the Hangouts app. I don't understand how Google can't do a better job getting the GV app / system working correctly!

    Works on that setting but then it would use the phones minutes for the call. I linked the phones number to GV and the phone will ring but uses the phones minutes also.

    I think it is a phone issue regarding the lock screen. Hangout does not ring through the lock screen either.

    I'm using the latest Google Voice, v2020.26.317757783, updated June 22 with no real issues. Incoming and outgoing calls, SMS and MMS all work.

    I am on the same version with Android 9. Everything works except incoming calls don't ring when screen is off. Rings when the screen is on.
