Google offers pared down Voice service for existing mobile numbers
If you’re a fan of Google Voice but want to be able to use your existing mobile phone number with the service, there’s good news as Google announces a cut-down version.
Those who already have a Google Voice account and number can now choose to link their existing mobile phone number to the service, which gets them access to Google voicemail, enabling voice-to-text messages for reading on a PC or via SMS.
You won’t be able to use certain features such as call recording or call screening â€” maybe that will come with time â€” but you can at least get a little piece of Google on your cellphone if that’s what you like.
Oh, of course it’s US only at present, too.
