Introduction

Google Voice Locations, available on the Android Market, adds location awareness to GoogleVoice controlling ring settings based on real-time location.

It also features a money saving Callback Dialer thatallows users to initiate calls from any phone linked to their account.

Google Voice Locations is Free Open Source Software (FOSS) published under the GPL v3. If you are interested in accessing the source code for this application,please visit the Developer Site on Google Code. GVL was built with the Google Voice Java API.

If you enjoy Google Voice Locations,please consider making a donation to support the maintenance and continuedimprovement of this application.



Login: Google Voice Locations requires a Google Voice account.
Main Menu: Quickly view your current location profile. Use the Menu Button to access the Locations, Settings, and Quick Ring Settings.


Dialer: The official Google Voice application uses access numbers to place calls directly. The iPhone version preserves the option of Callback as in the Desktop version, but this option has been removed in the Android version. Restoring this functionality was the motivation for recreating a fully functional Callback Dialer. Not only does it allow calling back the originating Android phone, but it allows initiating calls from other phones in your Google Voice account.
If used correctly, the Callback Dialer will help you save on cell phone minutes. Place calls easily on landlines. Cleverly turn 'Friends and Family' style plans into unlimited calling plans. The GVL Dialer has access to the address book. Making calls is easy.
Other apps available on the market integrate a Callback Choice for all calls initiated through the phone's Dialer in the same way that the official Google Voice app can offer a with or without Google Voice choice. Unfortunately, this can cause interference on many phones meaning you must choose one app or the other. One motivation for recreating a Dialer was to avoid this conflict so this app and the official Google Voice app can coexist in harmony.
Settings: Since the last version, Google Voice Locations has become much more feature rich. Taskbar notifications now can be optionally enabled. Frequencies of Location and Google Updates can be adjusted to preserve battery life or improve performance and accuracy.
Location Preferences: The central feature is the ability to define phone ring setting based upon location. A background service runs to detect location changes and enforce preferences.

Quick Ring Settings: Currently Set or 'Quick' Ring Settings can be accessed from the Main Menu. In this section, users can quickly view what phones are enabled to ring, and make rapid adjustments. In making changes, the Location sensitive Background Service is disabled to prevent regression. The Background Service can be re-enabled in the Settings Menu.
By the way, did you know if you hit * after answering an incoming call to your Google Voice number, you can transfer the call to your other Google Voice phones? Try it out.

Google has a great, big bunch of web apps on the market right now: Google Docs, Gmail, Google Cloud Print, etc. One of their more recent and enticing pieces of software is Google Voice.

Use Google Voice On Desktop

With Google Voice you can create a number with Google that will reach you no matter where you are. Moving and switching phone numbers is suddenly not as daunting. Not only is it convenient, but Google Voice also brings a lot to the table as far as functionality and call options is concerned. And it is available on your desktop and your mobile phone as long as you are living in the US, or know a workaround.

Actually Getting Started

First, you will need to get yourself to the Google Voice website and hit the nice, big and blue button (love big and obvious buttons!) in the top left that is begging you to Try it out. You are going to need a Google Account to get started and if you don’t have one (seriously?), then select the option to create one.

Once you have created a Google Account or linked your existing one, Google will lead you through a series of steps necessary to your Google Voice set up. The first of which is choosing your phone number. You can even search based on a word or phrase, like your first name or PICKLES. Whatever gets you excited!

Next step is just choosing your 4-digit access pin for checking your voicemail.

Here is where things get interesting. This step lets you specify phone numbers that your Google Voice number will be forwarded to. Meaning that you can set the service up to have your home phone, cell phone, and work phone all ring when someone calls your new Google number. That means you can hold onto one phone number, just changing what it is forwarded to if you ever need to change your house number or cell phone, etc.

After that, you will be asked to perform a simple verification of your phone number by entering the provided security code when you receive their automated call.

What You Can Do

Google Voicehas a lotto offer the user. The main part of your screen is where your voicemails and text messages will be stored and viewed, and it is all very Gmail-esque. You can send text messages for free , that’s not a feature in conventional phone plans, which is awesome! The simplified voicemail management that translates your voicemails to text and let’s you listen to them without listening to endless amounts of robotic dialogue (you know what I am talking about).

Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a screenshot of my own that would showcase all of these features as Google Voice is currently not available in Canada (where I live). But I can assure you that I am incredibly jealous of anyone that has access to the full voice features.

Anyway, check out the video below that shows an overview of this cool service.
