Google Voice Just Got Better

by on Oct.28, 2009, under tech

Google Voice recently added a feature that really appeals to me. There are times where I work in buildings where I have no service on my cell phone. Google Voice has helped this situation by allowing me to forward my Google Voice number to wherever I am. The problem is, not everyone has my Google Voice number, and even if they did, they'd still see my cell number whenever I call them. If someone calls my cell phone and leaves a message when its out of service, I don't get the message until I'm on the road, which is usually too late.

The new feature Google Voice has added is allowing me to using Google Voice for voicemail on my cellphone. It doesn't work with all cell providers but they hit the major ones including US Cellular (who I use) which usually is left by the wayside. Not only does it consolidate voicemail boxes, it also allows me to forward my cell calls to my Google Voice number which then dials any number I set up. So now I can even receive those calls that I would normally miss and I don't really need to hand out my Google Voice number.

If you're tired of me raving about Google Voice and just want to try it, I have three invites to hand out. Leave a comment or dm me on twitter with your email address and I'll hook you up! (If you leave a comment, I'll already have your email so you don't need to include it in your comment)

Also, sorry for the lack of posts lately. We've been very busy the past few months. I'll be posting some gaming stuff soon (hopefully).
