Google Voice – the Next Free VoIP Service Released to Public

After almost a year of testing and tweaking, Google Voice has already been opened up to the public.
However, the sign-ups are still limited to everyone in the U.S. for now. From Google Voice blog post,

A little over a year ago, we released an early preview of Google Voice, our web-based platform for managing your communications. We introduced one number to ring all your phones, voicemail that works like email, free calls and text messages to the U.S. and Canada, low-priced international calls and more—the only catch was you had to request and receive an invite to try it out. Today, after lots of testing and tweaking, we’re excited to open up Google Voice to the public, no invitation required.

Google Voice could be the next VoIP service, which of course will allow you to make free VoIP calls. Free calls and text messages will be available to the U.S. and Canada, and low rates will apply to everyone else.
