Google Voice Invites Available Now

google-logoI love all things technology. Rarely, though, does something as cool as Google Voice come along.

I’ve been using Google Voice (GV) for several months now and I am in awe of the service and capability.

In a nut shell, GV provides you with one phone number that you can tie to all your phones. It’s not a phone service, but rather a way to manage your phones.

Initially, the service was in beta and accounts were given out by Google by invite only. They have now begun to change all that.

Get Your Google Voice Invite Here

Google is now providing current GV users the ability to invite others to sign up for a free GV account. If you’d like an invite, continue reading below.

If you are brand new to Google Voice, here’s a short list of some of the wild, crazy and freaky things possible:

Automatically have your GV number ring to any number of phones.

I’d much rather chat on my land line (home phone) but I’d rather keep that number private. Solution? Set my GV number to ring on both my home line and cell phone.  That way, I’ll never miss another call and I can choose to answer my home phone.

Listen in before taking a call.

Not sure who is on the other end?  Want to screen your call first?  Send any call to voicemail and listen in WHILE the person is leaving a message for you.  Decide you then want to take the call? No problem.  Connect directly to the caller at any time during their message.

Set specific rings or greetings based on your address book.

You can set GV to play certain voicemail messages from specific phone numbers.  For example, create one greeting that plays for your family, another that your friends hear, and a third one (perhaps your business greeting) for all other callers.

‘Need To Mention’ Features

Some other crazy cool features include:

  • Conference Calling (add others to your conversation)
  • Call Record (record calls and download file)
  • Call Switch (switch phones during calls!)
  • Block Calls (based on incoming phone number)
  • Place Calls (keep your real number private by placing calls through the GV system)

OK, obviously I’m a big fan of Google Voice and all things Google, in general.  If you’d like an invite (I currently have 3 remaining), leave a comment below saying how you intend to use the service or why you want one.

Also, if you HAVE a GV account and want to add your invites to the mix here, let me know.

    This service sounds awesome. If you still have any invites left, I’d love one.

      Hi Vicki,

      You got it. I just sent you an email invite to your @animalsreign.com email address.

      Side Note: Check your Twitter web url that’s supposed to lead to your pet sitting website. It’s currently broken :( You can fix this in your Twitter control panel.

    Thank you Joshua! I got the invite this morning.

    I tried the Twitter link and it worked for me just now. Could you check it again and see if it’s working for you now?

    Enjoy Google Voice.

    And sorry for any confusion, but I’m not talking about the Twiiter URL on this page here, I’m talking about your website url on your twitter account home page.

    On the right hand side where it says your name, location, web and bio, your web link is broken there.

    Hi Joshua. If you have any invites left I’d like one myself. I read the article and the service sounds amazing. I love the fact that you can block some calls. Thats great for those telemarketing calls. I use my cell phone right now, but the reception in my house sucks with it. I’d have this service to ring on my land line that I’d rather use while at home, but dont want to give that number out like you said. Thanks!

    • http://www.pawsandwhiskerspetcare.com/ Nate

      I take it theres none left as I havent heard from you or I just never received an email.

    • http://petsittingology.com/ Joshua

      Hi Nate,

      Please check the email you used to write your comment. You should see your new Google Voice invite.

      Enjoy, and please let me know how you find it.

      • http://www.pawsandwhiskerspetcare.com/ Nate

        Got it. Thanks Josh. I will let you know what I think of it for sure once I start using it. Thanks again!
