Google Maps for Android updated to v4.3, Google Voice graduates from beta, open to everyone

The latest version 4.3 of Google Maps has been released for download. It updates the users experience in several ways – some of which more subtle than others.

Not only you can get upcoming public transport schedules so you can see when is the next bus or train leaving, but also there are color-coded review aggregations of places to eat so you don’t have to go through all reviews individually.

Google Maps 4.3 for Android

Further on, Google Latitute now makes it even easier to share your location to friends.

You can get the latest Google Maps app for Android on the Android market app repository. It’s compatible with Android 1.6 and upwards.

Google Voice is final

In related news, Google Voice just graduated from beta and it’s available to everyone (in the US, at least) without invites. If you haven’t jumped on the VoIP calls bandwagon with Google Voice so far, not it’s a good time to test it out. You can get all of the available features explained right here, but as the Google blog puts it, “Google Voice gets you one number to ring all your phones, voicemail that works like email, free calls and text messages to the U.S. and Canada, low-priced international calls and more.”

You can get Google Voice on your computer as well as on your mobile.
