Google Releases Google Voice Mobile App for BlackBerry and Android Phones
      07/16/09 10:03 AM

Google has announced a Google Voice mobile app for Blackberry and Android.

Previously, to place a call using Google Voice, you had to dial your own Google Voice number from your cell phone or use the Quick Call button online. With this new mobile app, you can make calls and send SMS messages with your Google Voice number directly from your mobile phone. The app is fully integrated with each phone's contacts, so you can call via Google Voice straight from your address book.

From the mobile app, you can:

* Access your 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

Here is a video demo of Google Voice:


You can download the app from the Google Voice mobile site at m.google.com/voice. It's also available in Android Market ? just search for "Google Voice."

And for those of you who don't have a Blackberry or an Android-powered device, we have a mobile web version of the Google Voice site (accessible by typing www.google.com/voice into your mobile browser) that allows you to access Google Voice features.

You'll need a Google Voice account to use the mobile application. Currently, Google Voice is only available in the U.S.
