Google Voice explained to Americans. Brits continue to be shunned

The folks at Google have taken time out of their busy schedules to explain how their innovative Google Voice service works.

Sadly, UK users can jog on at this stage as the service is not available in Blighty, and there seems to be no prospect of it arriving any time soon either – for now, Google Voice is strictly a US-only affair. Bah!

For those lucky Americans – and green-eyed Brits who like to feed an inferiority complex –   Google has posted a whole suite of videos explaining the various features available, ranging from call screening to voicemail transcription to the ability to send and receive SMS by email:

  1. Voicemail transcription
  2. One number
  3. Personalized greetings
  4. International calling
  5. SMS to email
  6. Share voicemails
  7. Block callers
  8. Screen callers
  9. Mobile app
  10. Conference calls

There’s also a YouTube channel at youtube.com/googlevoice inviting users to gorge on all the videos in one place,  and enjoy what the chirpy voiceover lady describes as, “less annoyances, more awesomeness.” Alright!
