    12 Jan 2019 Google Play Release Update

    Hello, all!

    Many of you probably already noticed this, but the last build of 2018 for TextNow and 2ndLine has been available in the Beta channel for a couple of days, and now should be available for non-beta users as well.

    I bring this up because there's a key bug fix in this one that may have plagued some of you. Here's the notes for 6.7.0.1:

    - Fixed an issue where outgoing calls over data could stall on the dialing page without connecting.

    This is the big one. Some people were having their calls not complete whilst on wifi (worked fine over 3G/4G) - it would literally just hang on the dialer, doing nothing. Turns out there was a problem where the packet sizes being sent by the app were too big - and I'm not gonna lie, I didn't even know that was a thing - and so just literally wouldn't send the information to initiate the call. We crushed the hell out of that one, so if you're still getting hung on the dialer update the app at your earliest convenience.

    Other stuff:

    - New feature: call phone numbers sent in a message text by tapping the number, or add the number to your contacts app.

    - Improved icons on the main menu.

    And, of course:

    - Various performance improvements.

    Can't have a release without various performance improvements.

    As this is the last beta of the year, I will be slow to respond to any questions here. If you have any trouble with the app, you can always go to our support site at www.textnow.com/support, and chat with one of agents. They'll be available every day throughout the holidays.

    Thanks for a wild 2018, everybody! Wait 'till you see what we have in store for 2019. I can't say what it is, but it's crazy. In a good way. But crazy.
