Google today announced an update to the Google Voice application for Android and BlackBerry handsets. The primary reason Google updated the application was to speed up the process of making a call. According to Google, Google Voice previously had to ping the Google Voice server every time a user wanted to make a call. Only then would the call be connected using Google's access number. Now, Google Voice will assign a unique phone number to each person you call through Google Voice. It calls these "direct access numbers." Google says that this allows Google Voice to circumvent the need to contact the server via a phone's data connection and will speed up the process of connecting calls. The new application is available in the Android Market for Android handsets. BlackBerry users can download it directly from Google's web site. Google Voice works only in the U.S.
