GrandCentral becomes Google Voice – unified messaging, the Google Way

Sweet. I’ve been enjoying GrandCentral for some time now, but was wondering like everyone else what Google was doing with it for the past 2 years or so. Turns out they’ve been hard at work improving what was there and adding new features.

First a recap –

  • GrandCentral gave you 1 number that rang all of your ‘real’ #s: cell, home, work, etc.
  • screening of incoming calls
  • a single voicemail box with Web access to your voicemails;
  • caller-specific voicemail greetings
  • specify which phones rang when certain people called you
  • telemarketer blocking
  • off-times for certain phones

What’s new in Google Voice: …

The Voice to E-mail Sender

The Voice-mail e-mail sender is a simple-looking gadget that looks to be quite an efficiency enhancer. Typing up e-mails can be time-consuming, especially when you need to double-check for spelling and grammatical errors, whereas you may be able to quicker speak your thoughts out loud.

The voice-mail sender simply records what you say, converts into an e-mail and sends it. At a relatively cheap price, this may be one gadget you get that will quickly pay for itself in time (and hassle) saved.


Price: $41.44
