Google Voice, previously available only by invitation, is now free to all in the US.
Google Voice is designed for forwarding phone numbers, sending free text messages, transcribing voice mail, and making voice messages accessible online. And let’s not forget – this is free.
Currently, Google Voice is only available in the US, but international access will be rolled out – but no timetable has been released.
The service has some issues, including accurate transcription, but watch for Google to continue to make inroads into the telecommunications market.
