Mobile recycling can lead users to organised communications with Google
10 September 2010 — 2:13 PM
A new gadget from Google could make mobile recycling more tempting to busy people who use their phone on the go.
That is because the search engine and telecommunications provider has launched the Google Voice Inbox Widget, to be used on devices powered by Android.
Marcus Foster, product manager and author of the latest Google Mobile Blog, says the new technology offers quick and easy access to voicemail messages and texts.
A user's most recent communications are displayed on the home screen and clicking on one automatically triggers Google Voice to open.
Mr Foster adds it makes flipping through messages easier than ever, with the widget also offering a rapid way of replying to friends and family.
Workers dashing in and out of meetings can even use it to send all incoming correspondence straight to their voicemail.
The Google Mobile Blog has this week broken news of a new Walking Directions app launched by the firm, helping mobile owners navigate the streets of their favourite cities.
