The Google Voice Blog announced its imminent arrival last week, but now, after several false starts, Google Voice for iPhone has finally hit the App Store today! According to the blog post, the app will provide all the major Google voice features for your iPhone, such as cheap international calls, free texting to U.S. numbers, voicemail transcription, and the ability to display your Google Voice number as caller ID when making calls. As well as all this though, the app will also introduce some brand new features designed to greatly improve your Google Voice experience on your iPhone, such as push notifications which will alert you instantly when you get a new voicemail or text message, and the fact that most of your calls will be made via Direct Access Numbers, which should mean that you get connected as fast as you would with regular phone calls.
You can download Google Voice for free here. Note that its currently only available in the U.S., and that youll need a Google Voice account in order to use it.
