Google Voice App Supports iPad and iPod touch

Those with an Apple iOS device such as the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, now have access to the Google Voice app. Prior to this launch, the Google Voice app was only available for the iPhone.

The app is compatible with the iPad and iPod but all features are not available such as the ability to make voice calls as described below…

While you can’t use your iPod or iPad as a phone, you can use it to initiate Google Voice calls with your phones. We call this feature Click2Call. Simply click any ‘Call’ button in the Google Voice app on your iPod or iPad and then select which of your phones you want to ring. Google Voice will call your phone and then connect your call.

It’s certainly a handy addition to be able to manage calls from the iPad as well as send and receive text messages via Google Voice. It’s just a shame it doesn’t work as a hands free device that you can sit on your desk while speaking.

Other features have been added to the app such as push notifications that switch off your default GVoice alerts so you don’t get double messages about the same thing. Also a do not disturb function has been added as well as a few message management options. Overall, quite handy and available now via the iTunes store.
