Get the Most from Google Voice with XVoicePlus

Google Voice seems to be a great alternative to carrier texting and visual voice mail, as it offers various nice features like voicemail transcription, customized auto replies, and free texting in certain regions. Unfortunately, Google Voice is not available in all countries, but that’s a discussion for another day. Rather, Google Voice can be improved upon using XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Frameworks, which has proven that almost everything, even removing Tapatalk redirects, is possible.

A module created by XDA Forum Member runnirr allows other messaging applications to use Google Voice’s features. With this module, you can easily send and receive messages using the Google Voice SMS protocol, which is free to use in United States.

As this module overwrites some system applications, a few inconveniences are expected. For example, you can’t send texts via any app using SMSManager. Furthermore, this module is designed to work on GSM devices, so CDMA users may expect some crashes. Also, some permissions will not be displayed correctly. As it’s an Xposed Module, your phone must be rooted and have the latest version of Xposed Framework installed. This module should work on Android 4.2 and greater.

To get more information about this module, make your way to the original thread and give XVoicePlus a try.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
