“Direct Access Numbers” Speeds up Google Voice for Android

A new version of Google Voice for Android has arrived today, and its primary directive is to speed things up. Previous releases of Google Voice were set up in a way that they had to make a request to the GV server every time you wanted to make an outbound call. The new feature, Direct Access Numbers, eliminates that need and assigns a unique phone number to each person called. Removing the need to use the data network will speed things up considerably. Look for the Google Voice in the Android Market, scan the barcode below, or point your Android browser to m.google.com/voice.
