Google Voice Adds SMS To Multiple Recipients
Google Voice has added a feature, at least online, which has been widely asked for. The new feature is the ability to send SMS or text messages to multiple recipients.
As you can see from the image above, when you login to your Google Voice account on the web, you can now enter multiple numbers or contacts to send an SMS to. The only better feature than that might be the ability to send to a group.
Unfortunately, I checked my iPhone and the new Google Voice web app does not appear to support this function, at least yet. I also checked the GV Mobile+ application for jailbroken devices; that also does not support the function (I didn’t expect it to as it would require a new release).
Google Voice, for those who don’t know, is Google’s service that allows you to call and SMS using a different number than your actual cell phone number. Calls to that number are routed to different phones depending on your settings (including landlines), and text messages are free. Google also has an international calling service tied to Google Voice.
There’s not much more to the new feature than that, but it’s still cool.
