    Default Google voice toggle?

    I am new to Android, former WebOS user.

    Is there a simple app that can just turn on and off google voice for outbound calls?
    Turn it on and all calls go through GV. Turn it off and all calls go through without GV.

    Deciding on which route to take every time I make a call is getting to be a pain.

    The voice choice app does work sometimes but other times it does not.

    In WebOS I could open up my GV app and make calls directly from the app. I miss this functionality.

    Thanks in advance,
    Tom

    In the Google Voice application, if you go into the settings and select "Making calls," you have the following options:

    Use Google Voice to make all calls
    Do not use Google Voice to make any calls
    Only use Google Voice for international calls
    Ask every time I make a call

    That final option will cause a small dialog to pop up when making a phone call in the dialer, asking if you want to use Google Voice for that call or not. Is this the behavior you're looking for?

    There is also the widget which allows you toggle through those same options without opening the app.

    Thanks for the info. That is what I have been doing. I was wondering if there was an app that I could toggle back and fourth. When it is off all calls would go through without GV. When its on all calls wold run through GV. That way I would not have to decide for every call. For me there are long periods of time when I need to use GV and then say nights and weekends where I don't use it at all. So having the ability to "toggle" would be great.

    The Google Voice widget let's you toggle like that.
