google voice fc jpgYes, we did mention quite recently that Android 4.2 Jelly Bean has started to be released for the GSM variant of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and this can only mean two things – both Verizon and Sprint versions of the Galaxy Nexus would have skipped out on this particular update. Well, for folks who have been enjoying the Takju (US-based and unlocked) version of the Galaxy S3, it seems that there is one particular snag that might not make you too happy. We are referring to folks who tend to make use of Google Voice, as it seems that after applying the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update, using the app to send a text via Google Voice does not work, where we will be greeted by a force close message instead the moment you start to type the recipient’s name.

I guess for the moment, if you are a heavy user of Google Voice and do rock to a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, you might want to hold off the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update in the meantime before the entire shebang is resolved. Hopefully a software update would be made available over at the Google Play Store sooner rather than later to fix this particularly niggling issue. Were you one of those who were affected?
