Official Google Voice app coming soon, already approved by Apple?

Apple has already approved the official Google Voice App for the iPhone, according to a post over at TechCrunch:

We’ve gotten word that the official Google Voice application is on its way to the iPhone in the next few weeks. In fact, we’ve heard from a source close to Google that it’s already been approved — Google just needs to revamp the application to work with the iPhone 4 and iOS’s multitasking capabilities. If you’re a Google Voice user and you’re on an iPhone, this is great news.

Google last word on the matter was "no comment", but could the app whose infamous non-approval launched an FCC investigation and kick-started a new era of less kind, less friendly Apple/Google relations finally make its way ito the App Store? This is not that big of a surprise given that a couple of third party applications have already been approved that work with Google Voice, namely GV Mobile + and GV Connect.

Keep an eye on the App Store as if the report is correct, it could appear anytime soon!

  • I already have it downloaded to my ip4. Works great.
  • Would this app work for the ones you can only use the old mobile site of google voice? When I use the current page it attempts to dial a LD number which contains the 760 area code. So I have to switch to the old page and that does the trick. Wondering if using any of these google voice app fixes this bug?
  • Just check the app store, I don't see it. What country are you in jeans?
  • Jeans doesn't know the hell he/she is talking about. It's not out.
  • Jeans is talking about GV Mobile + or GV Connect, NOT the official Google Voice app from Google themselves. It has not hit the US App Store, yet.
  • i shoulda known! i'm so glad its finally coming to iphone, but i got too excited about gv mobile and already purchased it. what a waste of money. oh well. GV official app FTW.
  • Jeans was prolly talking about the one he got from cydia.
  • I hope it has push
  • It's sure taking them time to release it.
  • Any word on this.......
  • If this was anywhere close to being true, then it would have been out by now. They're still working on it, to make it just right - not just some "ios multitasking support."
