Google has updated its Voice app for iOS to version 18.33 with a new look and feel and a new Contacts tab. The Google Voice service provides users with a phone number for making calls, sending text messages, and leaving voicemails. This service works on smartphones and computers and syncs across all supported devices.
Some of the additional useful features in Google Voice include emails containing missed call information. And voicemail messages are transcribed. Plus you can enable a “do not disturb” mode and review your contacts in the G Suite.
The previous version of Google Voice was not integrated with G Suite. But users in the U.S. can still use Google Voice for personal accounts. Google Voice is also able to filter spam. And you can also search for calls, text messages and voicemails.
It’s worth mentioning that Google Voice already supported the “do not disturb” mode. However, it is now compatible with the “Digital Wellbeing” hours that are reflected on Google Calendar. The messages that are received after hours will be forwarded automatically and calls will go to your voicemail.
Google Voice ties in nicely with the Hangouts Meet video conferencing service. And enterprises are able to easier manage multiple users, set up call routing, and generate detailed call reports.
Google also plans to update the Android version of Google Voice soon. Some users have already reported seeing the updated version so it appears Google is rolling out the update gradually, according to 9to5Google.
