Update for Google Voice allows you to "pre-fetch" voicemails even with no network coverage

Update for Google Voice allows you to
How can we cheer you up on this Tuesday? How about by telling you that Google Voice has been updated and now has some new features to offer users. The application will now allow you to send emails to multiple recipients. At the same time, you can "pre-fetch" your voicemails so that you can listen to them in areas where there is no data coverage. Other changes include an improvement to text message notifications.

As usual, Google Voice can be found for free in the Android Market. Ah, and we must remind you to open the app at least once before routing calls through Google Voice. The app requires users to have an Android phone running 1.6 or higher-which is just about everyone with a phone running Google's open source OS.

Google Voice lets you place free domestic calls and cheap international calls and allows you to send free text messages.

ARE YOU EFFIN KIDDING ME? Dear Google Voice, STOP working on all this nonsense and SUPPORT MMS MESSAGING! It's been over 2 years since its been released and still no MMS support. I could really give a crap about this feature. I am so stupid for joining google voice and giving it out to people as my main number. I guess I wasn't stupid enough to port my number. Oh Google....

I'd like built in MMS too, but I think in order to fully support that in the best way possible, they'll probably want a dedicated amount of servers for it. I think the ability to SMS multiple recipients is also long overdue and is a much simpler task to accomplish (The article got it wrong, it will not "allow you to send emails to multiple recipients.") Gmail is how I get around the lack of MMS in GV.

\"Google Voice lets you place free domestic calls...\" Yes, free calls that you are already paying for with your carrier. Come on PA.

Well, you could use Google Voice kind of the way Republic Wireless is using it, minus the handoff. Use Google Voice when you've got wifi.

Last time I checked, Google Voice can only be used in conjunction with your carrier's voice calls. No wifi use.
