You Can Now Place Calls From Google Voice on Desktop

We recently saw a complete refresh of Google Voice, and today brings the first update to the service since it’s overhaul a couple of months ago. Particularly, you can now place calls directly through Voice on your desktop browser rather having to go through Hangouts. This feature has yet to reach mobile users, but it’s nice to see it’s resurfacing nevertheless.

For Android users, you can now send GIFs via Gboard from within Voice, while both Android and iOS have gained a new Do Not Disturb function which will silence all notifications from the service. In addition, you can now properly delete message threads rather having to archive them.

Desktop calls are now live for all users of Google Voice, while updates to the Android and iOS mobiles apps will roll out over the coming days.
