Google Voice in Gmail
Google

Google will soon offer G Suite subscribers who use Google Voice a handy time-saver. You’ll be able to make and receive calls directly in Gmail, so you won’t have to bother hopping over to another tab or app to do so.

On your browser, the Voice icon will appear alongside the other G Suite add-ons for Gmail on the right of your screen. The feature will start rolling out on June 3rd, and it could take a couple of days to hit your inbox. It’ll be available on the web, iOS and Android.

You can also now transfer calls using the Google Voice mobile and web apps. Google will offer suggestions of people to whom you might want to transfer a call. Alternatively, you can search for a contact or manually punch in someone’s phone number.

It’s not clear if or when other Google Voice users will have access to call forwarding or the option to handle calls in Gmail. However, Google has a habit of adding features to G Suite first before rolling them out more broadly later on.
