Google Voice Gets First Update in Five Years

Seems that Google Voice has just gotten it's first update in 5 years. The update adds group functionality to messaging, and MMS for all major carriers. It now has picture MMS support and divides your inbox into separate tabs for text messages, calls, and voice mails. They even added in Spanish translation! If you're used to using Hangouts, it's fine to keep using that, but you're welcome to try the new Google Voice apps. Also they are promising to update Google Voice more often.

When we first introduced Google Voice our goal was to create "one number for life"آ—a phone number that’s tied to you, rather than a single device or a location. Since then, millions of people have signed up to use Google Voice to call, text and get voicemail on all their devices. It’s been several years since we’ve made significant updates to the Google Voice apps (and by several, we mean around five 😉wink , but today we’re bringing a fresh set of features to Google Voice with updates to our apps on Android, iOS and the web.
