Google Voice app for Android gets an update, improves call management and adds additional notification settings

The official Google Voice app for Android has only been available for a short while, however that has not stopped Google from already offering a welcomed update. The new version is 0.1.415 and can be downloaded directly from the Android Market.

In terms of what is new. To begin with, the app now allows you to better control when you are using your Google Voice account as opposed to your regular number. With the new version, it is no longer all or nothing and allows you to choose from options that include always using your Google Voice number to only using it for international calls. You can also set it to not use Google Voice for any calls or have it ask before each call is made. Additionally, the new version also adds more alert settings for voicemail and SMS notifications.

But perhaps best of all is that the Google Voice app for Android, unlike with the iPhone, remains available.
