Google Visual Voicemail hits v0.4

We’ve been keeping an eye on Google Visual Voicemail (GVV) for the last week or so. Now that XDA user Sl4sher has gotten some of the kinks worked out, we’re comfortable putting it out there for our readers.

The concept behind GVV is to give you quick and easy access to your Google Voice Voicemail. Messages can be downloaded and cached to allow playback on your device. After you are done with your message it can be deleted or marked as read. The transcript of your message is also available, allowing you to quickly and easily triage your messages. GVV also uses your phone’s Contact List to display who placed the call.

Version 0.4 adds the ability to schedule updates, make calls via Google Voice, and separates your voice and SMS messages. Microsoft’s .Net Compact Framework 3.5 (opens in new tab) is required.

  • With home screen widgets, an on-screen keyboard, great notification management, and hands-down the best Gmail experience of any platform, Android 1.5 finally makes it easy (or easier, anyway) to love Google's foray into the mobile world. Of course, if you're coming from an iPhone -- as some users inevitably will be -- there are a few features that'll be sorely missed as you make the transition. For us, a biggie was visual voicemail, and after a little trial and error, we found a cool way to add it into our device without even leaving the Google ecosystem -- and even better, it's totally free. Follow the break for the full story!
