Google Voice

Contradicting Apple’s response to a Federal Communications Commission inquiry last month, Google says that the manufacturer of the blockbuster iPhone rejected its Google Voice app for inclusion in the App Store.

According to documents made public Friday by the FCC, Apple representatives informed Google of the rejection after a series of meetings and communications between the two companies. Despite these claims, Apple insists that it is still in discussions with Google, and continues to examine the application.

Apple says the application, designed for use with Google’s new voice services, would partially replace some of the iPhone’s core functionality. Users of the application would be able to place calls, send text messages and access voice mail using Google Voice.

The inquiry comes as part of the FCC’s recent investigations into the state of competition in the wireless industry.
