Google Voice Starts To Open Up Further [googleblog.blogspot.com]
We are happy to share that Google Voice is beginning to open up beyond former GrandCentral users. If you requested an invitation on the Google Voice site or previously on GrandCentral, keep your eye out for an invite email.

Once you receive your invitation, just click on the link and follow the instructions to setup your new Voice account.

Invitation only

If Google takes one more product and changes it's name to have "Google" in it, they will cheapen their brand down to nothingness. I mean enough is enough. Blogger and YouTube were kept, and that's real cool. So enough Google "something something", that's just super lame marketing. Horrible actually.

Google should study Halo 3 when it comes to voice.

Halo 3 features hundreds of thousands of players online at any given time, in the same graphically rich environment, with real time voice capability... and it doesn't stutter.

I have submitted my details for the Google Voice Invite 3 times but still am waiting for them to send across and invitation email.

Is there any other way to get Voice invite?

I got a Google Voice invite a little while ago. A little before this announcement actually, as a private invite from a Google employee.

The main thing I needed was to have two different residences using one phone number. There are some paid services that offer this, but not a one had a local number, so our neighbors would have to call long-distance to get us. So I was surprised to find that GV did indeed have a local number to offer.

That feature has been working without a glitch.

I haven't really even tried any other feature. Most of the other features seem primarily of interest to mobile users and since we have very limited coverage in our area, I don't use a mobile phone except on rare occasions when I travel to a town. So I really haven't tried any of those.
