After unleashing online a banner about the new update by mistake and then removing it, Google has finally confirmed that the refreshed Voice app is coming soon, but without revealing any details.

Google Voice does not get frequent updates but is a key service for many users, currently available on Android, iOS, and online. Earlier this week, a banner saying that "The new Google Voice is here" was spotted on Google.com, but clicking "TRY NOW" was not leading anywhere. However, this banner was removed after a while, turning out it was posted there by mistake.

Fortunately, Google made everything clear in a statement: "Sorry, it looks like we must have dialed the wrong number! But don’t worry, this wasn’t a prank call. We’re working on some updates to Google Voice right now. We have you on speed dial and we’ll be sure to share what we’ve been up to just as soon as we can."

While Google does not say anything about the features that this update would bring, most chances are to see Allo and Duo integration, as well as various changes to the Hangouts API. We will keep an eye on this and report as soon as the update arrives, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
