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, 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.
