GVV Updated To V 0.6.2
Google Voice seems to have become a very popular client for regular people like us who want to be able to contact people but keep a certain amount of privacy. Now, with the updated GVV software (non Google made client for GV) you can do just about everything any other device can do with Google Voice, and more.
The software was created byXDA member Sl4sher, who was previously very discouraged by Google’s ignorance towards Windows Phone, and made his own software to use. The software was recently updated by him, and now the change log looks quite nice.
Added contacts to dialer.
Changed when updates happen
Added update on receipt of GV sms. The sms is left alone for now.
Removed timed update as it didn’t work during sleep mode.
Contact number comparison, again I hope.
Non-gmail addresses should work now.
JSON parse error on missing location.
Specified argument was out of range on login should be fixed for everyone now.
Looks like Google was disallowing passing the auth token in the url, updated to use a header.
YOU WILL LIKELY START GETTING THIS ERROR WITH OLD VERSIONS, UPGRADE TO 0.5+!
Upgraded to SenseSDK 1.36
Dialer item names guaranteed to be unique. *Fist shake at SenseSDK*
Update button updates both sms and voicemail at the same time.

Create new SMS’s and reply to your messages via the same form.

Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
