Google Voice Extension for Chrome

Thursday, March 4th, 2010 by | Filed Under: Uncategorized

Recently, I changed my default browser from Internet Explorer to Chrome. The reason for this is the official Chrome Google Voice extension that was updated back in January. I have even ported my telephone number to Google.


Click to call:

Google Voice extension adds Click-to-Call functionality to web pages. You just add phone numbers to your online address book and it will create a hyperlink for them. Click on the one and Google will prompt a pop-up window asking you to enter a phone number, may be your residence, mobile or office phone number. Google also transcribes voicemails automatically.



The extension has 3 tabs: Call, SMS and Inbox. You can now make a call or send an SMS and receive massages using this extension. The extension also provides a button which shows the number of unread messages in your Google Voice account. Click it and you can view your voicemail and text messages.


How does it work?

The Google Voice extension places an icon next to any phone number found in a web page. When you click on the icon it brings a Google Voice dialer for the phone number. You can ring up to the number using any of the phones configured to your Google Voice account.

New features:

1.Phone number detection have been improved
2.It works with Gmail and Google contacts
3.It works with Google Maps and other sites that update their content dynamically.

You have to make sure that you have logged into your Google Voice account before clicking on a link to a phone number.

Note: The phone number detection is made only for US phone numbers.
