Google hasn't completely forgotten about Voice – after nine months with nary a peep, the Google Voice app has suddenly woken up in the Play Store. The new version comes with version number 0.4.3.8, which isn't even a big jump from the last one (v0.4.2.82). Actually, the fact that the app has been updated at all is the most remarkable thing about this. There's almost nothing new here.
The selector isn't new, but the popup is
- New popup with international calling information.
The additional warning for international calls is really all we've spotted so far (it links to this page). It seems that after so long there should be something new. We're not even seeing hints of a Hangouts changeover. The APK is available for download below, so feel free to install and see if anything looks different to you.
The APK is signed by Google and upgrades your existing app. The cryptographic signature guarantees that the file is safe to install and was not tampered with in any way. Rather than wait for Google to push this download to your devices, which can take days, download and install it just like any other APK.
File name: com.google.android.apps.googlevoice-0.4.3.8.apk.
Version: 0.4.3.8 (Android 2.0+).
