After five years of virtually no updates or improvements, the all new Google Voice experience launched today. The new 5.0 build of the app brings a Material Design look and feel to the Android app as well as an improved Web and iOS interface. Functionally, there isn’t much new as far as what you get with Voice. The apps however are a big improvement.
The new Google Voice apps has the more contemporary three-tab navigation with a FAB (Floating Action Button) for various activities in the app. The app’s tabs are for messages, Calls and visual voicemail. The new web interface has a similar design with the different tabs being accessible on the left side of the screen. It is a vast improvement over the clunky KitKat-style previous build.
