Google Voice Brought To Stock Android Messaging App

Koushik Dutta of Cyanogenmod fame has finally done what many have been hounding Google to do for a long time. He has found a way to integrate Google Voice SMS into any Android messaging app including 3rd party apps. This hack uses Android’s built in accessibility features and has been submitted to Cyanogenmod’s Git repo, so it should begin appearing in nightlies any day now.

That is why I love the Android Rom community. They often fix things and build sorely missing functionality before Google even considers doing things. In fact, Cyanogenmod brought us quick settings and swipe-away notifications that actually found their way into mainline Android.

There has never been a better time to Root your phone than now if you are a Google Voice user!
