MMS Support Finally coming to Google Voice

Per Google Voice Blog MMS has been one of the constant feature requests since we launched Google Voice and we’ve been hard at work trying to make this happen. Today, we’re happy to announce that we’ve made the first step in our efforts to bring this feature to our users. Google Voice users are now able to receive pictures and other multimedia messages from Sprint subscribers. The multimedia attachments will display on their mobile forwarding phone and in their email inbox when they enable text to email forwarding in their Google Voice settings. We are also planning on making them display in the Google Voice inbox. We are working with other mobile operators to make this work across all mobile phones and will update our users as more and more operators offer support for this. MMS was lacking via Google Voice this would be a significant stride forward.

Google Voice Gets Updated to v2.0.2.- Quicker Dialing Plus Notification Icon

  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. The “Direct access numbers”  feature, changes how Google Voice makes phone calls and speeds up the process. Get started today if you do not have a Google Voice number from your stock browser >>>>
