Making Calls with Google Voice

 

Another great service offered by Google is something called "Google Voice. Google Voice is a FREE phone service linked to your Google account.

NOTE: If you don't have a Google account, create one for free. Not only will you get a free lifetime email, but you will also have access to all kinds of other free stuff from Google.

You choose a telephone number and then you configure the service to route callers any way you want. For example, you give everyone your new Google Voice number. Then, you activate one or more of your phones to accept calls from this Google Voice phone number (e.g. home phone, cell phone, work phone).

TIP: Even if you only have one phone, using a Google Voice number keeps your personal phone number private and allows you to block any callers you don't want to hear from again!

Next, you program which calls go to which phone. For example, you can set it up so all family and friends who call your Google Voice number get routed to your cell phone and home phone simultaneously. Any business associates may get routed to your work phone only, and any generic incoming call gets routed to your cell phone. When your mechanic calls that your car is ready, it rings your cell phone. When the dentist calls to remind you about your appointment, the house phone rings, etc. However you want to set it up. Best of all, when that pesky telemarketer or credit card company calls back, block 'em!

You can even make phone calls from your iPhone, iPad, Android smartphone or computer.


NOTE: Google Voice allows calls up to 3 hours long (in one sitting). Also, you can only call USA and Canada for free. If you call outside of the USA and Canada, you will incur per minute charges.
