Just a few weeks ago the guys over at Google launched Google Voice for iPhone. Ever since, they’ve been working on making it even better, as they tend to do. So far, they’ve been working to add a few improvements that didn’t make it with the initial launch.
One of the first things they tackled was to add support to iPod Touch and iPad. Starting last week they made it possible to download a new version of Google Voice. This new version lets you use all of the features that you normally enjoy on other devices. One of the most popular features is the ability to send and receive free text messages.
Of course, you can’t use the iPad or iPod Touch to make cellular phone calls. But, you can actually use both devices to initiate Google Voice calls with your cell phones. The feature is called Click2Call.
Click2Call is pretty awesome, if you ask us. All you need to do is click any “call” button on your iPod or iPad in the Google Voice app and then choose which of your phones you want to ring. Then, Google Voice will call your phone and connect the call.
They’ve also made a few other improvements you may want to hear about. We’ll go ahead and list them out for you:
- Enabling Push Notifications now automatically disables Text forwarding.
- The “Do Not Disturb” feature will send all calls straight to voicemail.
- Dedicated contacts makes it easier to place calls.
- No need to press the “OK” button anymore when sending text messages.
