Google Voice

Google Voice

A friend of mine really had me thinking some time ago about Google Voice. I remember hearing the rumors and seeing the clips of Google Voice from my Gmail inbox, but didn’t really pay note to it since I was happy with my voicemail I already had. And then it happened. My content little answering application from the free Android apps decided to ‘charge’ a fee for the service. Ugh! Not only that, it started to have ‘glitches’ and like a friend who moved away, it began to forget about me. It started not to notify me of voicemails or cut off in the middle of the callers attempt to leave a message. I have to admit, I became disappointed in my little app I had grown so fond of.

During a visit to my friends house, the subject of ‘voicemail’ came up again. My friend’s sister needed a new number to avoid a somewhat obsessive/mental ex but 1) there’s a fee to pay for the phone number change 2) still needed the current number for expecting incoming calls. Solution, Google Voice. It was perfect and also my cue as well to chime in on the opportunity to also create my account.
It was easy. Not too complicated and easy to follow steps. One thing I love about Google – It’s simple and understandable ๐Ÿ™‚
So whats the big deal?
1) Google Voice is a FREE voicemail client
2) It’ll text you as well as send an email of voicemail notification
3) You can create a number of your choice (if available) which is awesome for someone like me since I freelance
4) You can keep the lowest phone plan and utilize Google Voice to make your calls, which again….are FREE
and 5) You can personalize your voicemail(s) for certain calls.

Need I say more?
I’ve been using Google Voice ever since. Not only have I been able to save on my minutes, have a professional number AND filter my phone calls, the best part is I don’t miss my voicemails anymore…now if I can just get a new phone, lol ๐Ÿ™‚
Who said there’s nothing in life that’s for FREE….Love, Peace and Hairgrease ๐Ÿ˜‰
