ICS Goodies: Google Voice Integrates with Android Visual Voice Mail

Here is another reason why you would want to be on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) instead of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, apart from the fact that it comes with a new interface and better speed and performance: the Google Voice app has been updated and it is now integrated with Android 4.0 visual voicemail. Also, the updated version provides direct access to folders from the inbox in Android 4.0.

Until now, you had to open the Google Voice app to view all your voicemails and all the text transcripts for your voicemails. This meant that you had to open the call log to see your missed calls, then exit the call log and launch the Google Voice app to access your voicemails. You no longer have to put up with such a nuisance if you’re on ICS and have the latest version of the Google Voice app.

The updated Google Voice app that has been released a few days ago lets you view and listen to voicemails from the call log. You will see your voicemails in the call log, alongside outgoing, incoming, and missed calls. Just tap a voicemail and you will be able to listen to it. If the voicemail is of something important, you can slow the playback down; it is nothing terribly important, you can speed the playback up.

The Google Voice app is currently available in the US alone. You can get the app from the Play Store (formerly known as Android Market; Google introduced Play as a replacement for the Android Market, Google Music, and the Google eBookstore) for free here. To enjoy all the functionality presented above, go to the Settings menu and check “Voicemail display”. And don’t forget that you need to have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for this sort of functionality to work.
