Google released an update for the “Google Voice” Android app today that allows Android 4.0 visual voicemail integration.

Software Engineer Yong-Hoon Choi explained on the official Google Voice blog that the app supported visual voicemail since 2009, but jumping between the call log and Google Voice app proved cumbersome.

“So, today, we’re updating our mobile app so you can view and listen to your voicemails on demand directly from the call log on your Android phone,” announced Choi. “Your voicemails will appear alongside your outgoing, incoming, and missed calls in your phone’s call log and you can just simply touch them to play them.”

Users can also slow the playback of their message to better concentrate on hasty talkers, or they can even speed it up to breeze past lengthy voicemails.

The Google Play Store has the app’s latest version available now. It is free and has a 4.3-star user rating based on 88,864 reviews as of press time.
