Google Voice for iPhone updates with native call integration on the Sprint network

Google Voice Update include native Sprint call integratrion

Google has updated their Google Voice app for the iPhone, including complete integration with Sprint to allow calls to be sent directly to the 3rd party app rather than the stock Phone app. Here's the complete update log:

  • Multi-recipient texting, with contact autocomplete.
  • Sprint integration support: sends all calls to the native dialer when the phone is integrated with Sprint
  • Multi-line text entry field with character count.
  • 1-touch Copy/Paste in dialpad

This is rather big news, and somewhat surprising that Sprint would allow this to happen. Given the nature of most carriers these days, letting subscribers bypass their network completely is a good indication that Sprint has their ears open and are actually listening to the requests of their user-base.

Google Voice is available in the App Store for free and compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch.
