Android Apps, Google


We already told you that a newer version of Google Voice was discovered in the early G2 ROM that was leaked last week. Now we can show you the goods. And offer a chance to test them for yourself if you’re so inclined.

The Google Voice update is rather minor, save for its inclusion of two new widgets that display your inbox or control settings. Voice previously would adjust call settings through a home screen shortcut, but it’s now done through a homescreen widget. In addition to being able to switch how calls are made, the widget also supports a shortcut to compose SMS, launch the app, or turn on the do not disturb mode.

A second widget simply shows the latest action from your voice inbox, and then opens the main Google Voice app when touched. You can install the leaked version of Google Voice by visiting this thread at XDA and downloading the links shared in the thread. Here’s a quick video showing what the widgets look like.
