SMS Messaging and Google Voice Are Brought Together in One App
If you like to communicate a lot by SMS and other online services then you know how troublesome it can be to switch apps all the time. This is especially true in case you are running older versions of the Android OS, such as Gingerbread or Froyo.
One of the latest Facebook Messenger updates has brought the app big step further towards improving the user experience and now integrates SMS messaging on selected devices, letting you have all in one place and even use the app as the main texting app (available in settings). As the solution has been very well perceived by the community, other developers have been looking to do the same with their apps and integrate all-in-one solutions. Unfortunately it is not the case with Google, as that will never happen.
Developer DreamBig, Inc. has decided to provide a very well designed app that combines two of the most highly used services into one app. Messaging + Google Voice provides users with the ability to communicate both ways with ease. The app mimics the look and feel of the stock SMS messaging app in Android 4.0+. Even the icon remains basically the same, with a “+” sign so it’s more easely spotted. According to the developer, they have managed to rebuilt the stock messaging application and add Google Voice capabilities into it. It supports sending and receiving Google Voice texts within the messaging application.
Messaging + Google Voice is provided for free on the Store. If however you find it useful and want to keep using it, you must upgrade to the Pro version when it expires.
