Google Voice is a Voice over IP (VoIP) service that allows users to send and receive calls to and from computers and cell phones, as well as other mobile devices. Google Voice also provides 'visual voice mail' by transcribing voice messages to text for easy management. Google Voice provides customization beyond that which is available from any other service, and it does so free of cost.
