Google Voice opens to the world

So if you haven’t heard, Google has now opened the by-invite-only Google Voice service. With the service only being just over a year old, and having a modest 1 million users it seems fitting to open it up to the public. I have been using this service for over 6 months now and it is great to see it now open to everyone. The idea is that you only need one number for the rest of your life, and you can just forward your Google number to your actual number. It’s great, because if you ever change service from landlines or cells, you don’t have to go and change everything, as long as you told everyone your google number… Check it out below:

Google Voice sends out an invite


So I got my Google voice invite today. I am now a small part of the elites of Google users. Maybe not, since the Google Wave invites went out yesterday (here too). The problem is GV doesn’t have an official Apple app on the iPhone. Good thing mine is jailbroken and I can use the GV mobile that is out there for FREE!!! You want my number?? I’ll give it to you…Just kidding. The idea of what GV is, is pretty cool. Basically putting your phone calls over the internet when able and also giving you one phone number. (One number to rule them all!) Basically all you have to do, is add in your work, home and cell numbers and it rings them all. It also transcribes your voicemails for you as well. If you want more information, check it out on Google and also sign up for an invite.

I’ll get back to you in a few days or weeks to see how it’s going. Here’s a video on how it works:
