Google Turns Voicemail Into E-mail with its latest service: Google Voice. The new service works with Google’s Gmail, allowing a person to store voicemail phone messages in their email inbox. Google Voice offers consumers a single phone number that can route incoming calls to home, office and cell phones.
Google Voice uses speech recognition technology that automatically transcribes voicemails into text. The transcribed messages can be forwarded as a text message or to an email address. The introduction of this product will be free to consumers while Google will obtain revenue through selling enterprise versions of this application to corporations.
