Google Voice lets you receive voicemail & notifies via email with an automated transcript of the voicemail, and a link to play the message. Until now, clicking "Play message" opened a new page in your browser, but now, you can play voicemails right in Gmail. Just turn on the Google Voice player from the Gmail Labs tab under Settings and whenever you get a voicemail notification, the player'll appear right below the message itself. And, your message status’ll stay synced: messages played from Gmail’ll appear as read in your Google Voice inbox and won't be played again when you check new messages via your phone.
