If you recall all the bru ha ha from this summer regarding the removal and/or rejection of Google Voice apps, the FCC asked the three companies involved (Apple, Google and AT&T) to respond to a set of questions regarding the matter. The responses were released to the public, but a number of Google’s responses were redacted. At that time, all we had to go on was Apple’s response to Google’s Voice app, saying it hadn’t been rejected, but was still being studied. Now details are coming out regarding Google’s take on the matter. They say that Google Voice was rejected by Apple’s Phil Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Product Marketing, during a phone call with Google’s Alan Eustace. The reason given was “duplication of functionality”. You can read the full filing with the FCC (PDF link) and Google’s policy blog which outlines their reasoning behind the release of the document.
