Google Voice: Invites No Longer Required
Article by George Norman

There are many things that make Google Voice an interesting service. The Google Voice number covers all your other numbers, so when someone calls your Google Voice numbers, you can set it up so that all your phones ring – your mobile phone, your other mobile phone, your landline, and so on. With Google Voice you can make free calls and you can send text messages to the US and Canada free of charge (you can also make international calls – not free, but for low prices). You also receive notifications about new voicemail messages via SMS for free, and you get voicemail transcriptions.

The list of positive aspects about Google Voice could go on and on. I will stop here because I’m sure you get the idea. There was always a dark cloud looming over Google Voice – incredible as it may be, you could only use it if you got an invitation. I think you will agree that was a big pain in the unmentionables.

Your unmentionables no longer have to feel any pain. Google recently announced that it made Google Voice available for everyone – everyone in the US that is.

“After lots of testing and tweaking, we’re excited to open up Google Voice to the public, no invitation required. We’re proud of the progress we’ve made with Google Voice over the last few years, and we’re still just scratching the surface of what’s possible when you combine your regular phone service with the latest web technology. It’s even more amazing to think about how far communication has come over the last couple hundred years,” commented, Google Voice Product Managers, Craig Walker and Vincent Paquet.
