Google Voice

Google Voice (formerly GrandCentral) is a telecommunications service by Google launched on March 11, 2009. As of October 2009, Google Voice had some 1.4 million users, 570,000 of whom used the service 7 days a week. This number has risen markedly since Google made the transition of its Google Voice service from "invitation only" to be available to all Gmail subscribers in the United States. A Wired Magazine blog post quoted a figure of 3.5 million in 2013.The service is configured and maintained by the user in a web-based application, styled after Google's e-mail service, Gmail, or through the service's Android and iOS apps.
