Today, Google updated their Google Voice app to v0.2.0.2. I have had this app since last summer, and no major updates have been added. I do use my Google Voice number often, so i’m hoping the app got some good attention. It is barely installing on my end, so I can’t provide you with any feedback yet, BUT Google has put up an article on their Google Voice blog detailing the update. Here is what they had to say:Until today, the Google Voice app had to make a request to the Google Voice server every time you wanted to make a call to send us the phone number you wanted to dial. Then the call would be connected via a Google Voice access number. With direct access numbers, we assign a unique phone number to every person you call. This means that we no longer need to use your data network to access the server each time you make a call, so calls will be placed much faster.
