The integration between Gmail and Google voice has been ongoing since August, but one of our favorite features finally seems to be rolling across the board, call recording . This feature has been around for some time now, but unless you knew to hit “4” during the call you probably had no idea it was even possible. The familiar record icon in the lower right corner on the other hand is much more intuitive.
The feature still works the same as before, inbound calls only and both parties are notified that recording has been activated. There also seems to be an arbitrary limitation in place that prevents the recording of calls that bypass Google Voice by going from one Gmail contact from the other, but I’m guessing that will be fixed in time.
Has the feature gone live for you? Anyone out there using it?
