Google has recently added Voice to its enterprise G Suite, and the revamped application eventually arrived for iOS users.
As it was suggested by the redesigned icon, its primary job is to give users calling features via standard telephony over and above what you would usually expect from regular apps.
It can do things such as email users about their missed calls, transcribe messages, enable “do not disturb” feature based on working hours and access contacts elsewhere in G Suite.
Differences compared to the previous version
The most important differences with the previous version of Google Voice are the previously mentioned G Suite integration, a new design, a Contacts tab, and performance improvements.
Just as before, Voice will transcribe voice messages, let users filter out spam, and backup or search calls, text messages and voicemails.
The do not disturb feature existed before and it will work with Digital Wellbeing hours that users will set on Google’sCalendar.
When you receive messages after your designated workday, they will automatically be forwarded while calls will be sent straight to voicemail.
Enterprises will be able to efficiently manage users, create detailed call reports and set up routing function.
Google also promised that Voice could save you money on intentional calls, but it is also testing VOIP functionality using Wi-Fi and cellular data.
Voice’s latest version is rolling out to iOS and Android
The latest version of Voice is rolling out to iOS, but it’s also reportedly on the way to Android users.
This means that you’ll likely see it on Play in the near future.
Considering that some features such as Digital Wellbeing, are part of Android Pie, some features may be limited, and this will depend on your device.
More than that Google Voice for personal accounts only works in the US and select countries for G Suite.
