Updating google voice on new phone
One of the biggest changes that Google has made to Voice is the user interface.The updated Google Voice app features what the company describes as a cleaner and more intuitive design for users.Up to now, Voice features have been predominantly used through Hangouts on Android.While that service can continue to be used, Google encourages switching over to the new Voice apps for Android, i OS, and the web for new functionality in the future: Going forward, we’ll provide new updates and features to the Google Voice apps.Also, we'd be remiss if we didn't point out that the desktop site is mired in a dated gmail look and the i OS app hasn't seen an update since some minor bug fixes back in June, so even a visual overhaul would make Voice feel less like an afterthought.We've reached out to Google for additional details and will update when we know more.If you currently use Hangouts for your Google Voice communication, there’s no need to change to the new apps, but you might want to try them out as we continue to bring new improvements.
Google has added a fresh set of features to its Google Voice internet telephony service including support for group and photo multimedia messaging services (MMS) and in-notification replies.
However, according to some credible rumors flying around today, a new version or redesign is right around the corner.
According to the Verge, some users checking their Google Voice accounts today were greeted with a link at the top of their inboxes telling them that "the new Google Voice is here" and to "TRY NOW." While someone at Google apparently jumped the gun with that link (clicking it actually did nothing), Google did confirm to Engadget that changes were coming very soon for Voice.
Google Voice is an incredibly useful and powerful IP-based phone service provided by Google and currently has well over 3.5 million users.
With Google Voice and Hangouts, you can text and call using your computer and it will all sync with your i Phone, i Pad, Android phone or tablet!
