Google Voice Android 4.2 problems fixed in latest update

There aren't many people running Android 4.2 yet, but if you are, there's a pretty good chance you've encountered some issues with Google Voice. The app hasn't been functioning properly ever since Android 4.2 landed, but thankfully those frustrating days are over (at least until the next version of Android hits). Google pushed out an update for Google Voice today that fixes the app's compatibility issues with Android 4.2, and it's available on the Google Play Store now.

Google Now voice search heads to iPhone

Google's extremely impressive voice search feature, Google Now, that was revamped and released with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is headed to iOS - wait what? Yup, you read that title right. Obviously the entire amazing feature set and "cards" of Google Now won't be hitting the iPhone, but it comes close and is set to rival Siri on her own playing field.

Google Voice update integrates voicemail with phone app

If you're like most heavy Google Voice users, you keep your GV voicemail and standard carrier voicemail separate. This is great for managing different numbers, but it's a bit of a pain to wrangle all on the same phone. Android and Google Voice get a little closer today, as GV's voicemail service is available from the native Android phone/dialer app. The update treats voicemails like calls, so you'll see them in the same place that you usually see Google Voice incoming and outgoing calls in the dialer. Download the updated Google Voice app to apply the changes.

Google “Assistant” coming late 2012, will best Apple’s Siri

Google has had what we all know as "Voice Actions" long before Apple's Siri came along, it just wasn't shown off on the same big stages and bright lights of commercials. Since then, Google's been working on what rumors and reports have called Project Majel -- a Siri-like voice assistant similar to the current voice actions only better. New details are starting to leak that might have also confirmed the name.

Google+ Circles now available on Google Voice

Are you one of those strange, old-fashioned folks who talks to people on the phone? Actually moving your lips and everything? Wow, you're old. Well, now you can combine your stone-age analog air vibrations with super-advanced modern social networking all the kids are talking texting about. Starting today your Google+ Circles are available in Google Voice, too, allowing you to define what action Google Voice takes when one of your contacts calls. To be blunt, it makes it a lot easier to send that friends who's just a little too persistent straight to voicemail.
