Google Voice Extension Now Available for DashClock

google voice dashclock

Fellow Google Voice addicts, your DashClock extension dreams have finally been answered. Released this morning, we have an app called “Google Voice for DashClock” that does nothing more than display your last received message and number of unread new messages. You can also tap on items in DashClock to open the app. It’s incredibly simple, but is exactly what we have been waiting for – “we” as in those of us attached at the hip to Google Voice.

One thing to keep in mind, is that it requires you to enable it in Accessibility (Settings>Accessibility>DashClock Google Voice Extension). Also keep in mind that the app requires no special permissions, meaning it shouldn’t be able to capture any of your data. It should simply be relaying information from Google Voice to DashClock.

Cheers Miguel!

    It would be a cool app if it actually showed on the phone like it is displayed here. Instead the default view is three mini icons next to the clock which have to be swiped down to view information. After reporting it to the developer, it seems like there is no remedy at least for stock android as this is a system limitation. Too bad.

      That’s how the system works, it’s to make space for the passcode/pin/face/swipey thing unlock, or the standard unlock if you don’t have it secured.

        Well, from what I hear, there is a way to make it full size by default if you use AOKP or some other custom ROMs. So I am guessing there is a work around available that just needs to be put in place.

          When I say system I mean stock. Obviously you can do whatever you want with custom roms.

    This looks like a cool app. I wish my phone had the 4.2 update. Maybe soon.

    The Google Voice app still sucks…

    • Trevor

      Yeah, it could definitely use an update. Maybe if Google releases an all-in-one messaging app…

    I didn’t understand the point of lock screen widgets till Dashclock came around.
