It’s been a long time coming, but Google Voice has finally been updated for the iPhone 5 and iOS 6.

Back in August, we wondered whether Apple had stopped approving Google app updates. A number of popular Google applications had yet to be updated as anticipated, which was curious. However, Google Voice (for iPhone and iPod touch) is now finally compatible with both the iPhone 5, and with iOS 6. In addition, a number of bug fixes and performance improvements have been made to the application, which now requires at least iOS 4.3.

As outlined in the app’s release notes, changes made in version 1.4.3 of Google Voice include:

  • Optimized for iPhone 5 and iOS 6
  • Bug fixes and performance enhancements
  • iOS 4.3 or above is now required

You can download Google Voice in the App Store for free.
