Happy Birthday Google Voice: First Birthday!

Happy Birthday Google Voice! Google Voice turns one today. I never knew that Google Voice was around for almost a year or should I say more than a year. It seems as like if Google Voice just came out few months ago. Before Google Voice there was GrandCentral. Yup you heard it right Google Voice use to be GrandCentral. Back in 2007 Google acquired GrandCentral Communications, a Fremont, Calif.-based company whose beta product provided a “universal phone number” to make your phone life easier. Since then Google Voice has grown significantly. More and more people are becoming aware of Google Voice service. I thought it was lame at first until I started using Google Voice. Boy, was I wrong! This is the best thing that has happened for those of us thats been waiting for something that can bring all of our phone numbers into one number. Those of you who’s using this service you know what I’m talking about. If you’re thinking of getting your hands on Google Voice then you can Request for a Invite.

  1. A year gone by already? I signed up for GrandCentral back then. I liked the concept of having all your calls routed to one phone, but I didn’t use it at all until Google took over. My only gripe is that I can’t check my voicemail on my super old phone. I need to use the browser to do that and I can’t do that when I’m out and about. Of course, I wouldn’t have that problem if I had an Android phone haha.
