Can an Explorer call my Gloo phone number?
Updated over a week ago

At this time, your Gloo phone number is only set up for texting and cannot be used for voice calls. If an Explorer tries to call your Gloo phone number, they will be told that the number is not available for calling.

There are certainly situations where it would be helpful to connect with Explorers via phone calls and not just texts. For those cases, we have a few recommendations to help you connect while maintaining your privacy.

  • If you would like to set up call forwarding on your Gloo phone number, get in touch with our support team at or by using the chat bubble in the bottom right corner of your screen. Call forwarding will allow you to connect your Gloo phone number to another existing number, like your church's phone, so that anyone who calls your Gloo phone number will automatically be forwarded on to your church number.

  • If you would like to be able to call Explorers but want to protect your personal number, we recommend setting up a free Google Voice number. This way you can call Explorers and they can call you without giving away your personal number.
