Google has updated its Google Voice extension for Chrome, and it sure brought with it some highly usable new features.

Users of Google Chrome and Google Voice have already been able to use them in conjunction with one another, but with the release of version 2.0 of the Google Voice extension yesterday, it just got even more exciting.  The extension now:

  • Adds a button to the toolbar, which displays the number of unread messages in your Google Voice inbox.
  • Gives you quick access to your most recent messages with transcripts.
  • Lets you initiate calls and send free text messages by just typing any number or contact name.
  • Makes phone numbers on websites callable via Google Voice by just clicking on them.

The system is a lot more integrated now, and should make it even easier to save on cell phone minutes, and even contemplating getting rid of your landline once and for all.

If you haven’t signed up for Google Voice yet, it’s well worth it … especially since it is free.
