The wait is finally over. At precisely 6:37 PST yesterday, I received my official invite to join Google Voice.
I first signed up for this service about 7 months ago. I have spent most of the this morning setting it up and running it through its paces.
If you are a Google fan (like yours truly), the setup procedure will be nothing new to you. It is as easy to set up as Gmail or any other of the fine Google products. It took me all of about 15 minutes to learn what needs to be done to make it work. MORE>>
I’m not known in my circles as a rumor monger, so please take the rumor I am about to spread and don’t kill the messenger (me) if it doesn’t exactly pan out.
The fine people over at Boy Genius have picked up on a potential viable rumor that Google Voice is going to be released tomorrow (June 18th). Head on over the Boy and read the article that is inundated with rumor and innuendo.
After two long years, the wait is nearly over. What used to be called Grand Central, which was bought by Google about two years ago, is now called Google Voice.
Unfortunately for me, I didn’t get signed up in time so I’m still on the list and not the active list so I don’t get to try it out just yet.
I have been looking forward to it for some time and can’t wait until it’s available. If any of you are on the list, please report in after you have had a chance to check it out.
