Google Voice is a new telecommunications service implemented by Google, that allows you to manage phone, voicemail and SMS with the help of a single interface. Particular to Google Voice is the ability to have one number on all your devices, yet still route the call differently depending on the caller and/or time of day.
Access to this service is for now limited to US residents, with free PC-to-PC audio and video calls. Also, notable is the feature of free calls from PC to phones, which is in effect until the end of 2013. Low fees are offered for international calling in most countries.
As with anything Google, the philosophy of stock and search later applies here, too. You can have your voicemails not just recorded, but transcribed, and included in keyword searches later on.
