Problems in Android 4.2 silence Google Voice

Problems in Android 4.2 silence Google Voice
Android 4.2 has started rolling out for the GSM variant of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus which means the update does not cover the Verizon and Sprint models of the phone. For those rockin' the Takju (U.S., unlocked) version of the handset, we earlier gave you the instructions on how to manually update the device to Android 4.2. And that would be great except for a bug on the new Android OS build that is affecting users of 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?

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

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 "L I N U X "

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

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

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
