    07 Nov 2018 Google Play Release Update

    Hey, all! Another Friday means another beta release, which we somehow managed to do through our federally-mandated haze of legal marijuana smoke. (Note: Kidding.) There's a very important bit in this one, which I will get to right now:

    - 6.0.4 is the FINAL TextNow release for users running any versions of Android Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0 to 4.0.4) and Jellybean (Android 4.1 to 4.3.1). Users of those Android versions will still be able to use TextNow, but will not receive any further updates to the app.

    That's right! No more updates for you, handful of people still rocking five year old phones. Consider this your official pants-kick to buy a newer phone.

    - Reduced the instances of dropped calls when switching from wifi, data and voice networks.

    This relates to elastic calling, and when you move from wifi to data to voice in any combination while on the same call.

    - Floating Chat toggle now accurately shows whether chat heads are on or off.

    I swear, floating chats will be the death of me. Enough people like 'em so we can't remove them entirely, but at least the toggle shows the right state now.

    And, of course, the classic:

    - Various performance improvements.

    Version 6.0.4 will be hitting the Play Store today and tonight. You might already have it! But probably not. But soon!

    As per usual, let me know your thoughts and comments on this week's release. Have a great weekend everybody!

    So, as many of you have no doubt noticed, we changed the app for reals today! Not just the app, but our website and all other branding got the refresh too. We're very pleased with all of it, so let us know what you think!

    A spiffy new look gets it's own version number! We're currently releasing version 6.0 (Oreo users will be seeing a 6.0.1.0 version a little later tonight.) The big redesign is obviously the bulk of this release, with a couple of minor performance improvements not big enough to notice for you, the end user.

    And why not check out our website while you're at it? Don't cost nuthin'. Check it out here: www.textnow.com

    Until next week, folks!
