Just thought we’d mention the Android Google Voice app quickly, seeing as Google’s just updated the chat and phone aggregator today. You can download it and install it right now – but it won’t work here. That’s the bottom line.
Until Google sorts out a deal with the UK mobile network and landline operators to bring Google Voice to the UK, this is what happens when you try to use it outside of the US:
It doesn’t work. Thought we’d give it a try as there’s nothing good on the telly tonight. One day it will work. And if you do go to Google.com/voice you’ll be told it’s not working again. Officially. So don’t waste your time installing it, like we just did on the off chance it’s working. It’s not working.
