To enable this feature:

2. Click the wrench icon and select Voice Settings.

3. Click the Calls tab.

4. Check the box next to Global Spam Filtering. at the bottom of the page. See screenshot below.

Note: If a number ends up incorrectly marked as spam, you can easily unblock it by selecting the message and clicking the Not Spam button in your spam folder.

If you’ve marked a call or voicemail as spam on the Google Voice website, any future calls from the caller will be sent to your voicemail, and your phones won’t ring. The voicemail will be automatically placed in the Spam folder. Just find the call or voicemail from the caller, select the checkbox next to the call or voicemail, and click the Spam button.

You can also mark a caller as spam when listening to your voicemails by pressing 8 at any time during the message.
