After 30 miles of back road driving in Croatia, I was happy to see a toll road!

I am very excited about the integration of Google Voice into Hangouts... I've been (im)patiently waiting for this to come!
google voice calling, sms and voicemail—now available in hangouts

earlier today we announced free voice calls from hangouts, making it easy and affordable to keep in touch with loved ones (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2014/09/call-me-maybe-introducing-free-voice.html). but that’s not all :) our update also includes some improvements for our passionate (and patient) google voice users:

1. calling. when you call someone from hangouts, it’ll now come from your google voice number. and when someone calls you, you can answer from hangouts too.

2. sms. you can now send and receive your google voice sms messages from the hangouts app.

3. voicemail. google voice voicemails can now appear in hangouts as part of your ongoing conversations. either read the transcriptions, or play them inline!

these features will be activated a few days after we complete today’s rollout. so grab the new version of hangouts when it’s available (v2.3, http://goo.gl/v7FTL), and install the accompanying dialer to turn on voice calls (http://goo.gl/tRaJpm). ios only supports google voice calling for now, but sms and voicemail support are coming soon.

hangouts remains the future of google voice (http://goo.gl/WVVFN0), so we’re going to keep bringing the most-loved google voice features into the core hangouts experience. (don’t worry: your google voice number won't change.) in the meantime make a free call on us, and enjoy today’s updates!

+João Dias I put together a number of Yatse AutoShare intents to add to the existing Voice Command one on the AutoShare Intents page. It would be great if you could add these to the list so other users could benefit from them:

Is there a way to have Yatse automatically perform background synchronization of the database? I enjoy using the Yatse Voice commands, but if I don't open Yatse between voice commands my database ends up being outdated. So when I say something like "Play the next episode of [FavoriteShow]" Yatse uses it's outdated local cache and plays an episode I have already seen.

Not sure how I missed this, but Google Search 3.5.14 added "OK Google" hotword detection from anywhere. No matter if you are in Chrome, your favorite game, the lockscreen, or have the screen off (and the phone charging), you can access your OK Google hotword.

This is particularly excellent for users of AutoVoice as we can have custom voice actions from anywhere.

Instructions:
Open Google Now, scroll to the bottom and tap Menu>Settings>Voice>”Ok Google” Detection and enable the settings you want.
