Google Voice now open to US public

June 22, 2010, By Thomas Antony

After being in beta ( or preview ) for over an year, Google Voice is finally open for registration to anyone in the United States. Their service allows anyone to get a single phone number which can be connected to all of their phones. You get free voice calls and text messages within the US and Canada, low-priced international calls and voicemail that “works like email”. Even in its preview version, Google Voice managed to rack up over a million active users. That number will only be going up now that it has gone public.

Google Voice can be accessed in a variety of ways. If you are one of those techies with an Android smartphone, there is a mobile app for just that. There are also similar apps for the BlackBerry and iPhone platforms as well as a mobile web app for use from a mobile browser. Also available is a Chrome extension for the same. Google Voice also comes with other cool features such as SMS-to-email, voicemail transcription, conference calls and more.

So if you have been dying to get that invite to try out Google Voice, you no longer have to wait. Just head over to the sign up page, login with your existing Google Account or register for a new one, and you are good to go.
