With GFN, Google assigns a unique phone number to your ads. This phone number, which is either toll-free, equivalent to a local number, or a local number if available.

 

Google itself assigns this number, you do not get any option to choose.

Hi Philip,

 

Hope you are asking about the Google Forwarding number.

 

It is now available in Advanced settings, check the box to enable GFN.

Please look at the screenshot for your reference.

Thanks for the fast response. I've got it set up like that, but I still don't get how the Google number is assigned. Is it automatic? Do I get to choose a number? Thanks

Thanks. So do I get to see what it is after the ad has gone live?

Depending on the type of number on your website, Google itself decides.
