Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) has announced that Google Voice now works on the iPod Touch and the iPad. Even though you cannot use the iPad or iPod Touch as a phone, you can use it for initiating a call with your phone. This feature is called Click2Call.
To get started, click on the “Call” button on the Google Voice application. Then select which phones you want to ring. Google Voice will call all of them. Below is a list of some of the other improvements made on the app:
- When you enable Push Notifications, we will automatically disable Text forwarding for you, so you won’t receive multiple notifications.
- Want some quiet time? You can send all callers straight to voicemail by turning on Do not disturb in the Settings tab.
- We made it easier for you to place calls from the address book by adding a dedicated Contacts button to the Dialer tab.
- Sending text messages is now more streamlined since you don’t need to press the OK button anymore.
