A new version of Google Voice has just crawled out of the woodwork, and while the changes are minor, we think most users will like what’s in store. First and foremost, we were greeted with a new, darker interface that better matches Honeycomb’s design philosophy, along with a refreshed icon that more closely resembles the messaging app in Ice Cream Sandwich. There’s also a curious new feature known as asynchronous SMS, which allows you to queue up messages for later delivery when you happen to be without signal. To test this out, we put our handset into airplane mode, fired off a few texts — which showed up as queued — and then took our phone back onto the network. Once back online, the messages were delivered as expected. And hey, it can’t get much better than that, really.
