New Google Voice = GrandCentral

When I first heard of GrandCentral, I was really impressed; one number could be used to ring all of your phones...amazing. Now Google has released this wonderful service as Google Voice. Other features of this service include transcripts of voicemail, archiving and searching of SMS text messages, the ability to make cheap international calls, a central voicemail inbox accessible from the cloud (web), and the ability to screen calls by listening in live as callers leave a voicemail (awesome!!). All of this is free! Currently, only GrandCentral users can use this but more will be able to sign up in the future, but only if your in the US. Hopefully Google will bring this to Canada soon.
