It is finally over! The trial period for Google Voice in the United States has finished, and Google has moved to allowing US customers to get this service – no invite required! There are some 1 million people using Google Voice at the moment and Craig Walker (person in charge of running this service) says that there is a lot more coming in the very near future.
“Today, after lots of testing and tweaking, we’re excited to open up Google Voice to the public, no invitation required,” wrote Walker. “Over a million of you are now actively using Google Voice, and many of the features released over the past year (like SMS to email and our Chrome extension) came as a result of your suggestions, so thanks!”
