Google Voice for Android Updated

In other Android news(can you believe there was actually other Android news today besides Froyo?), the Google Voice app for Android was updated. Last time around, the application received a major message syncing feature, which gave nearly instant notification of SMS.  While, this update isn’t as big, it is definitely still significant.  Google has now given users the ability to turn on and off SMS forwarding from the application, something I have wanted for a while. One great new feature is that now in the notification pull down, it says who the SMS is from, instead of just displaying the  Google Voice app icon like it used to. Overall, the update will make messaging through Google Voice more convenient.  Check it out when you get a chance.

      But that's half it's charm right now. I have no less than 6 new names thanks to it's odd, selective hearing. My friend Deb is also now, apparently, my dad.

    I just wish they'd allow us to separate the notification settings (sound, etc.) for voicemails and SMS. I treat them very differently, and I end up missing text messages because I tune out the voicemail sound for calls I purposefully ignored.

    I use it, I like it but when calls come in, the other person sounds distant and with a delay, reminds me of 1986 international phone calls into Mexico.

    Google's blog I noticed when I read the news on my phone Android. I immediately switched to it. It does, indeed, faster text messages directly to the phone, but is still a big improvement over what GV Android users had before.
