Unofficial Google Voice Client Gvoice Brings Some Features to your PlayBook

Gvoice Gvoice2

I ported my number to Google Voice awhile back and it has been awesome. I have been using the Google Voice website from my PlayBook to send and receive SMS and listen to voicemail but Gvoice promises to simplify that. They have ported their WebOS Google Voice App to the PlayBook allowing you to:

  • Forward calls through your Google Voice number
  • Send and receive SMS text messages from your Google Voice number
  • including support for long messages exceeding 160 characters!
  • Archive messages, mark as read or starred, block callers, delete conversations
  • Search past text conversations
  • Do-not-Disturb mode to force all calls to voicemail
  • Automatic new message checking

Sadly this app does not allow you to make Google Voice calls like a VoIP app but hopefully somebody is working on one of those! Until then you can pick up Gvoice in App World for $1.99.

  1. There is actually an app that will let you make VoIP calls using a phone with Google Voice.

    I found the GVJACK application at http://www.pcphonesoft.com about a week ago.

    I used it to convert an old expired magicJack dongle I had sitting in a drawer so I could use it with Google Voice.

    Not only is my phone service free but it has like 20 different features.
