Grandcentral becomes Google Voice

I always sign up for Google free stuff because if it looks the least bit interesting, Google will be changing it, modifying it and improving it. And sometimes combine it with something else to make it very powerful. That is what is just happening at Grandcental. It is becoming Google Voice.

So why would you care? Look at the features below. That may help you decide.

I signed up for gmail way way back. It is getting more and more useful all the time. It looks like it is about the merge soon with Google Voice. You can NOW email from Grandcentral, er excuse me Google Voice.

Here is the description when you go to

Google Voice: Coming soon

Google Voice is a service that gives you one number for all your phones, voicemail that is as easy as email, and many enhanced calling features like call blocking and screening, voicemail transcripts, call conferencing, international calls,and more.

Google Voice is currently available for GrandCentral users only, but will be open to new users soon. In the meantime, please leave us your email address and we'll notify you as soon as Google Voice becomes available. To learn more about Google Voice, check out our feature videos.

When can I sign up?
We expect to have the service ready for new users in a matter of weeks, and are focused on opening it as soon as possible.

What if I reserved a number on the GrandCentral site before?
We will be emailing you when Google Voice is open to the public to sign up for the service.

How much does it cost?
The service is free.

What do I do if I am already a GrandCentral user? Over the next few days, instructions will appear at the top of your inbox on how to upgrade your GrandCentral account to Google Voice. Thanks for your patience.

I think it would be very good to leave your email address with Google so they can let you know when the transition is complete.

Google is famous for its vast array of freebies. However the freebies can often be upgraded to Premium Quality by paying a small fee. If you don't need the premium support, then you just keep using the FREE version. Life is good.

Google Voice is by invitation only for now unless you were a previous GrandCentral user.

Put your name on the invitation list so that you are one of the first to get access as soon as it is opened.
