Google Voice Turns Calls to Text

Susan Hall

Google is relaunching the GrandCentral service, which lets allows users to choose a number where up to six phones will ring simultaneously. In addition, it's adding a voice-to-text feature so your voice messages can be sent as e-mail or text messages, reports


The new feature will provide you with a searchable text record of your calls.


The service, called Google Voice, became available Thursday to GrandCentral's VoIP customers and will be widely available in the coming weeks.


CNet News' Larry Magid says the service will be a real money saver for international calls especially.

This new iPhone application by Google can help people connect all of their phone applications in one. Currently, Google voice is under construction, but users of Google voice, if T-Mobile users, can connect their phone number to Google under their Myfaves application, and then make free calls at any time. No instant payday loans for users and their phone service bills, as calls are all free when made from Google, though they will show up as a 605 area code. A GV Mobile for the iPhone application is on the way. This way, you can make phone calls without worrying about maxing out the credit cards on phone bills using Google Voice
