Google Voice has been around for about a year now but not everyone was able to sign up because the service was accessible by invitation only. The official Google Voice Blog has announced that as of today the service is open to everyone with no invite needed. Some of Google Voice’s features include one number to ring all your phones, online voicemail that works like email, free calls and text messages to the U.S. and Canada, low-priced international calls and more.
If you sign up for Google Voice be sure to also download their free BlackBerry app and take advantage of the following features while on the go:
- One number
Make calls and send text messages from your Google Voice number.
- Voicemail transcription
Voicemails are automatically transcribed to text so you can read them like email.
- Free text messages
Send and receive text messages through the Google Voice app for free.
- Cheap international calls
Make low-priced international calls directly from your phone.
Google Voice integrates with your phone’s native address book or Google Contacts.
- Custom greetings
Set up different greetings for different callers.
Note: Google added the following to the end of their blog post (bummer!):
Just to clarify, though we’ve opened up sign-ups, Google Voice is still limited to everyone in the U.S. for now.
