MetroTalk for Windows Phone 8 gets new goodies in latest update

MetroTalk

The hands-down best Google Voice app for Windows Phone 8 is MetroTalk. Without question. All competitors have sort of crumbled, which is fine, because MetroTalk happens to be a really great app. The developer has just released an update today with some nice new features and big fixes. Let’s take a look.

The call/text page, which has been janky in the past, has been given a complete overhaul. It now supports T9 dialing, and it’s just much easier to place a call. This is important since you can’t use the stock dialer to place calls through your GV number.

You can also use multiple accounts now, which may be a first for Google Voice apps. Push notifications can be automatically configured though an easy setup process. Push notifications from non-Gmail accounts (such as OUtlook) can be manually configured. For new users there is a setup wizard to guide you through the process. We just used it, and it worked great.

This is a really great app for anyone that uses Google Voice. I happen to rely on GV as my primary number, which makes MetroTalk a critically important app to me. It works great for me, and it will work for you too. Download it below for free or $1.99.

Changelog:

  • New: Complete overhaul of the Call/Text page with support for T9 dialing
