Google Voice gets bigger to bigger user base

Google Voice

Internet huge Google has extended its Google Voice VoIP service to every American user, with no invite necessary.

The service allow user to sign up for a single phone number to manage all additional devices, voicemail that move directly to email, free calls and text messages and low-price worldwide calls. Until now, invitation were needed to sign up.

In a blog post, the company thought that "after lots of testing and change, we’re excited to open up Google Voice to the public, no invite necessary".

The Google Voice service caused a number of controversies previous year after Apple banned Google’s Google Voice app from the App Store. This still sparked a report by the FCC into whether the move was anticompetitive or not.

Though, in spite of Google rolling out the service to extra users, Australians won’t be able to take part.
