Any idea if they plan on making it Push notification ?
(sorry if this is stupid but, what does that mean)
I get notified when I get a Google Voice SMS if that's what you're talking about.
When you use the service and you get a new voice mail, the app doesnt notify you real time.
SMS, yes... But the app should just handle it natively.
I have mine set to text me... never really noticed whether the app itself notified
I've wondered the same thing. Best solution I came up with, is to reduce the refresh to 5 mins (the minimum).
In the Google Voice app: Menu> Settings> Refresh and notification> Refresh inbox> 5 mins.
I have mine set to notify my standard google mail account and that seems to work out near instantly.
Are you under the impression that (a) Google voice is primarily an app devoted to supporting notification of phone calls or (b) that Verizon's voice mail supports instant notification?
I agree that instant notification would be ideal but since I have (not infrequently) gotten notification of my Verizon voicemail three days to three weeks after a phone call, I'm extremely satisfied with the notification sent by Google Voice.
I see, yea that is a bit odd being that it's all google's system... I just get notified of a missed call and then i just check my voicemail in case, but yea why refresh every 5 mins, why cant it just know...
Just to clarify, Verizon's VM is out of the picture (at least for me).
If someone calls, they leave a VM on my Google Voicemail.
Before I got the Droid, I had GV set up to send an SMS when I got a VM, which was instantaneous after receiving a call.
Now that I have the Droid, and the GV app on my phone, why wouldn't the app be able to provide the same notification directly?
Just have GV set up to send a notification to your GMail.
It is instant that way - and you still don't need an SMS plan.
It is odd Google Voice doesn't do it natively.
