Google Voice adds some nifty features for Android devices

New-google-voice-iconIf you know me at all, you know how much I love Google Voice. Whether you're using it to enable WiFi calling on your HTC EVO, or filter phone spam from annoying telemarketers, or you're taking advantage of any of its many other ingenious features, I think it's one of Google's best products, hands down. And it just got better.

The latest update for the Android app was just released and enables some pretty nice features, including:

  • Asynchronous SMS sending (the ability to compose texts offline and send them automatically when your device's data connection returns).
  • New style UI in Honeycomb and ICS (including a new ICS-style icon).
  • Official user feedback menu on each screen (previously dogfood menu).

Qrc-googlevoiceOne feature that's not on the official changelog is the ability for tablets like the HTC EVO View 4G to take advantage of the handy "click-to-call" feature; this feature works exactly the same as the web version of Google Voice, although it will now be more tightly integrated across different apps on your device.
