Google today unveiled its Google Voice mobile application that will allow users to make calls directly from their phones. Those receiving the call at the other end will see the user’s Google Voice number, rather than their mobile phone number.
Text messages will also appear to have been sent from a user’s Google Voice number. The Google Voice app will also allow users to access their voice mail, to view message transcripts and have the app read them in what Google calls “karaoke style,” with the app highlighting the words being read.
You can also place international calls at low rates.Google Voice is only available in the U.S. and the mobile app is for Blackberry and Android only.
