Google Voice Released for GrandCentral Users

In 2007, Google announced the acquisition of GrandCentral, a “service that lets users integrate all of their existing phone numbers and voice mailboxes into one account, which can be accessed from the web.” Now they released a product called Google Voice to (for now only) GrandCentral users (the service is still being rolled out, so you may not see it yet as GrandCentral user). I’m not a GrandCentral user so consequently I can’t login, but Google promises features like a “Google Number” – “One number for all your calls and SMS” –, speech-to-text-based voicemail transcripts (including mistakes) landing in something looking similar to an email inbox, greetings varying by caller, call blocking, conference calling and more.

Note you can request an invite for when Google opens up Google Voice to non-GrandCentral users.

Google provides a couple of tour videos in their YouTube channel.
