The Google Voice iOS app has been updated and that's a reason for cheer. After all, iPhone users are now finally able to enjoy group text messaging — a feature which has been available to Android-carrying Google Voice users for quite some time.
The freshly updated Google Voice app — version 126.96.36.1992, in case you're wondering — can be downloaded from the Apple App Store now.
Along with the group text messaging support, it brings to users multi-line text entry fields (so that you don't have to stare at a cramped single-line text entry field), better integration for Sprint iPhones and one-touch copying and pasting on the "Dialer" screen.
All in all, this sounds like a decent update which helps iPhone users catch up to their Android counterparts.
But as Lifehacker's Melanie Pinola points out, it's worth noting that some folks are experiencing log-in problems or seeing account errors while attempting to use this latest version of the Google Voice app. So be careful and make sure you back up your iPhone before updating the app — that way you could always revert to the older version if something's funky with 188.8.131.522.
