What's New in Version 1.11
iOS 7/8 bug fixes
Needs serious update
You can't send picture messages, and message threads are not connected. If you want to know who you're texting or what was said before you have to scroll through your inbox, not the message. Google seems so advanced everywhere else, why hasn't this app caught up? I do appreciate that my number has never changed though since I got it maybe 5 years ago and sometimes go months without using it. If Google is looking for paying users to really update the app then I am willing to pay for a better app, mainly because my number has never changed, which is amazing. I don't use the app much anymore because it is not easy to find out who I'm texting. Also wish you could have a separate contact list in google voice that doesn't connect with your actual phone contacts. My google voice is for business contacts only.
G voice and mobile app needs to have some adjustments to compete with other coup systems including those for business users. Can you please add a way to record individuals voicemail greetings in the app and have it where I can do it for specific contact groups or for specific contacts.
Also can you add a way to have it where multiple people can share the same phone number but have a separate extension number such as a how a one system works this way all calls go trough one number but the auto attendedent would rout the call to the intended person or our switchboard operator.
Also can you add capability to send and receive faxes thought google voice where it is done in the cloud instead of having to have a dedicated fax machine.
You can't search messages! Another sorely missing basic function!
I am still afraid to take this update based on the abysmal history of problematic updates for this app (I thankfully was wise last time from experience and didn't take the last corrupted update). In addition to the updates introducing horrible bugs that disable the main functionality of the app, there are so many features that are sorely lacking… I often find the inability to search through messages extremely frustrating… this is of course available on the web version, but why not have that as basic functionality in an app? Other people have listed the litany of all the missing features from this app so I won't reproduce that again here.
