Google Voice: What Do You Think?

picture-6I’ve written about Google Voice (GrandCentral) over at SEL

What do you think about its prospects? One way to assess this is to see whether you’re interested, after reading about them, in getting access to these services. 

My answer was “yes.”

    Even better would be if I could get 1-800-999-999-MALCOLMLEWIS.

    I’ve been using a GrandCentral number as my primary number for at least a couple years now, and lack of SMS integration was a big pain. I’m incredibly excited to see Google made GrandCentral better instead of letting it drown in a deadpool.

    Greg – My guess is that we will see Google Voice reappear in Google Maps. With Google Voice, searchers can announce their interest when calling merchants (“I need a cab and want to pay by credit card.”) Google can then route this call to the merchant available to accept the call. If that business is not available (busy, no answer, on vacation) – Google Voice can offer the caller a connection to Goog411. Caller finds what they are looking for – and Google route the caller to a ready, willing and able advertiser. I posted addtl thoughts at

    That would be a good service, but we’re some distance away from that I suspect.

    Apple denied Google Voice for iPhones because this would have made the life of Mobile Carrier AT&T a lot more difficult and competitive. But thats business, what matters to the end users is the cheapest rates :). But i believe it to be good because its Google.

    I love Google Voice. There SMS feature in truth got me into it. I can send out free text messages to Bangladesh, India, and USA. It saves me some good money on my texting plan from Verizon Wireless because I can utilize that to send now. I think Google always does a nice job of giving users what they want and need. I have discovered in the future they are mixing Voice with the Android. Plus they bought a new VoIP company which they will mix with the other two to give some quality features. I need to get me a Androind now haha.
