Google Voice is now Free for Everyone – Get yours NOW June 24, 2010

Posted by TelUS Consulting Services in VoIP catagory.

The wait is over!  Those of you who haven’t been able to get a Google Voice account are in luck. Google has opened the gates and now the web-based Google Voice communications management platform is open to the public.

Google Voice offers a single phone number that can ring on all of a user’s phones, voice mail that can be sent to email as sound or text as well as the ability to listen in to a caller’s voice message while they are leaving it. The public release has some businesses excited to use the features, although at the moment it would mean adopting new Google Voice phone numbers.

The services was previously invite only like many of Google’s test products. With its resent purchase of Gizmo5, we can only hope more VoIP-style features will be added as membership to the service grows.

I have two Google numbers, one for myself and one for my wife, and they have worked flawlessly for over 6 months. I would recommend their free service to anyone that would benefit from a free VoIP Find Me/Follow Me type of service. Simply use your existing Google e-mail address, or sign up for one on line, and forward their assigned number to your cell or office number. Then use their free web based client to manage your calls, e-mail, etc.
