Google Voice client GoVoice gets new features in latest update for Windows Phone


It's been awhile since we've seen GoVoice, an unofficial Google Voice client, get update so it's nice to see the developer Nick Yu still supporting the free app for Windows Phone.

The latest version, 3.4, just hit the Marketplace and brings some great features including:

  • Search! Now you can search all your SMS's and voicemails
  • Message list contact integration - no need to export contacts to Gmail to see contact names
  • Notification setup bug fixed. Now you can set up notification automatically
  • Bug fixes

Combined with the previous v3.3 update which brought Mango features (including the important fast-app switching, better notifications and pinnable new message), GoVoice feels like a pretty complete and solid Google Voice app for those who need it (we do since we have three different cell phone numbers, ahem and like free SMS).

Pick up GoVoice for free in the Marketplace here.

3 different cell phone numbers!! Woah!! ;-)

That's because we actually use the phones we write about ;-)

Actually, it's more likely to mean three texts than anything else. It could also be a combination of texts and voicemails.

Does anyone else have a problem of nbot being able to play voicemails from the app while on wi-fi? I have not tried on cellular.

It has always been flaky for me. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't; regardless of whether I'm on cellular or Wi-Fi.

I really wish it had toast notifications for SMS like native OS messaging. That's about all it needs to be the best alternative SMS solution out there for Windows Phone.
