Problems in Android 4.2 silence Google Voice
According to those who have been using an Android 4.2 powered device including the new Google Nexus 4, using the app to send a text using Google Voice results in a force close message once the user starts typing the recipient's name. If you use Google Voice often and have a Samsung GALAXY Nexus that you can't wait to update, you might want to hold off until the problem is resolved before updating the phone. A quick software update in the Google Play Store should take care of the problem.
If you have been unfortunate enough to have experienced this problem, getting it off your chest will make you feel better. Tell us all about it by posting a comment in the box below!

you are so right wendy! i mean why root your android (specially the nexus) if it will already give you personalization and costumization for free! and rooting will be like "do it at your own risk" kinda situation!
i understand the jailbreaking on iPhones but on android? no! maybe because of the UI of the manufacturers and all their craps! but on a nexus? i dont get it! it will already give you pure android experience and will provide you the first updates!

That's why Nova3 and needforspeed and WildBore lags on the N7, and GTA3 @ few other games!
Root it then raise the Tegra GPU to 600+Mhz, then you can run any high-end games with absolute no lags!

But isn't that dangerous for the phone/tablet?
36. MC1123 (Posts: 1238; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
my point exactly! yes, maybe it will run other high end games fluidly (but still wondering about what he says, its a quad-core tegra 3,(even though its a first generation tegra but still tegra) and tegra chips are made for games... a lot of people even says that consoles are dead after nexus 7 arrive coz its a good gaming tablet!
but rooting it will be very dangerous! thats why if buying an android, i prefer nexus phones than phones that has costumization in it (galaxy phones, htc phones) and will have the updates 1st than the costumize phones!

lol well what's so chocking about this after all is android , buggy , and laggy is like a product that will never feel finish , that's why I got me a nokia lumia 920 best phone in the world.
8. wendygarett (unregistered)
Not all phones are bug lag free... But yes, I admit lumia 920 show least bug thanks to wp8... Never heard the complaint on it :)
But android still awesome too you know lol

Lmao still UNIX and strugels to run ios and Android high-end games. Once you root tou'r Android to max Transistion and fluidity is way above WP8 smothness and everthing launches in zippy seconds. it's like a ferrari as standard, but imagine raiseing the EMU to peak high, you will produce extra 100pounds of torque and 100 Bhp. Nothing can touch

Instead just buy an iPhone so u dont have to deal with that mess they call android. What garbage! My Nexus One was horrible, my Nexus S was even worse, I skipped the Galaxy Nexus and its puny 5MP camera, was gonna get the Nexus 4 but... You know what... IPhone pwns them all.
Wont go back to Android till they figure out google wallet, google voice, google talk and make these apps actually work

Google shall soon send a minor update OTA to fix this!

I bought the Galaxy Nexus, and probably will never buy another Nexus devices, ever again; not ruling out Android, yet.

What is wrong with Google??? the failed launch of the Nexus 4 3G, now this "update"??? c'mon is not like Android users get to enjoy many updates don't ruin this again Google.
13. protozeloz (Posts: 5374; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
They failed? Some said it was a small issue related with constant refresh from the users.....
17. gallitoking (Posts: 4684; Member since: 17 May 2011)
there was an article about the failed launch of the Nexus 4 3g written by the most respectable writer PA has ok.. go troll somewhere else
19. protozeloz (Posts: 5374; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
I'm sorry I'm not the one trolling in here, also I don't need to agree with everything he says, I'm not his bitch or something like that, experience changes depending on how things work out for everyone, and I'm smart enough not to purchase something on the same day everyone wants to buy it, saving me from "deadly issues" I could find and giving me a great device, but hey you are just bitter because this phone already broke last nexus sales records
Also this could be an asp bug not an os bug
35. gallitoking (Posts: 4684; Member since: 17 May 2011)
why should I be bitter again? my life doesn't revolve a cellphone...
"Also this could be an asp bug not an os bug"
would of could of...doesn't exist... try again
if you are so smart how do you know that this Nexus broke last year sales records? show me proof smart guy
38. protozeloz (Posts: 5374; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
If your life was not around a phone then you wouldn't be here nagging and hating
It's sold out everywhere
Prove me it didn't smart guy.
41. gallitoking (Posts: 4684; Member since: 17 May 2011)
wow.. so by that you already jump the gun and stated that beat the previous Nexus in sales?.. without even knowing how m any were in stock to begin with?.. that's smart of you.. well tell me smart guy since tit broke records sales tell me by how much and how many N4 have been sold.. easy for someone like you that is smart and does not assume things right?
42. protozeloz (Posts: 5374; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
Hahahaha why should I bother? Can you prove me wrong? You already know its true. and best part I was right about the Google voice thing being an app bug, fixed within a few hours...
20. wendygarett (unregistered)
Stop fighting guys... Just wait for the bug fix... Be patients lol

Typing the name? Why would you type the recipients name if you're using Google Now? Just say, " Text John Doe 'I'm going to be late.'"
26. networkdood (Posts: 6267; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
I do not use it on my tablet...xda probably already knows the fix

When you see that little box pop up hit the Report button and take the time out to tell them the issue and other relevant info.
I can see this issue getting fixed quickly either through Google or some crafty coder at XDA and the like. It's good to have an open platform.

I'm a GNexer, and *full time* Google Voice user for several years. I don't even know my real phone number.I *hope* this will shine some light on Google Voice and get them to update the app (last update Mar 22, 2012).
