Google Voice

Apple rejected Google’s official Google Voice app when it was submitted for approval six weeks ago. Really, true.

This news comes on the heels of Sean Kovacs’ GV Mobile Google Voice app being pulled from the store for “duplicating features”. These features are already built in iPhone. Next out the door was GVdialer, and if you thought that was all bad, now comes word that Google’s official Voice app was flat-out rejected.

Google Voice For Android & Blackberry Launched

by on Jul.16, 2009, under Mobile, News, Technology

Google has launched Google Voice mobile app for Blackberry and Anaroid phones. Google Android and RIM BlackBerry phone owners will enjoy better call management with Google’s Voice service starting today. Google Voice is Google’s next novel service that allows managing several phone numbers with one unique number and also converts voicemails to emails. The invite-only registration has been open to all. However, the service is not available to folks outside U.S.

Vincent Paquet, senior product manager of Google Voice, told that all Google Voice users who own Android or BlackBerry handsets would be able to user the service directly from their handsets today onwards. However, iPhone owners will have to wait for the iPhone version of Google Voice, which is being held for unknown reasons.

Google Voice was introduced in March this year and recently, Google was reported for booking a million numbers for this service. A single Google Voice number allows users to use a single number in lieu of their home, work or cell phone numbers and also get voicemails messages in form of text transcripts in mail.

Android based handset owners will be able to download the Google Voice App from Marketplace. BlackBerry owners will have to get the app from Google instead of their App World.

Features available are:

- Access to voicemail: read message transcripts, follow along with “karaoke-style” playback of messages, read SMS messages sent to your Google Voice number (even if your phone doesn’t receive SMS messages) and access your call history
- Place calls that display your Google Voice number from your address book, the app dialer (Blackberry) or the native dialer (Android)
- Send SMS messages that display your Google Voice number
- Place international calls at low rates

The application can be downloaded from Google Voice mobile website at m.google.com/voice, for those not using Blackberry or a Anaroid phone it can be downloaded by typing www.google.com/voice in your mobile’s browser
