Google decided to make changes to Voice, they did so with the aim at unifying services. Part of their focus was in getting some third party apps, which they noted violated terms of service, to shut down. One of them, GrooVe IP, has announced they will be shuttering their service on May 15th, 2014.
Nikhyl Singhal notes that the update to Hangouts will break compatibility with Voice, at least for a few months.

Google Voice is neglected would be a little bit of an understatement. And while it doesn't have nearly as many users as most of Google's apps, we'd love to see it get a bit more attention. Yesterday evening however, a rare thing happened and Google updated their Voice app. Not much has changed but read on for more details.
