    Google Voice Encounters Problems Early On

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Google's new services have met with wildly varying success; some have caught on to a certain degree, like Gmail; others have had niche applications, like Trends; still others have become wildly popular, like their original search service. Google thinks it has another potential success on its hands with Google Voice, but it is getting resistance from an unlikely quarter: Apple. Keep reading for the full story.

    In March 2009 Google launched Google Voice (in limited release); a free service unlike any other the company had ever offered the public. Basically, Google Voice provides users with a single phone number that can represent numerous other numbers they may have. These include cell phone numbers, work extensions, and home numbers.

    Before launching, the company reportedly obtained over a million phone numbers in anticipation of the public launch of the telephone. This isn't as crazy as it sounds, when you think about how many people have multiple phone numbers. Everyone who does is a candidate for this service.

    The technology for Google Voice was obtained during the company’s 2007 acquisition of the now-defunct Internet telephone company GrandCentral. Google anticipated their service being wildly popular, hence their frantic search for over a million available phone numbers.

    The service has experienced success in the United States, which is currently the only country that has access to it. It has also, however, encountered some controversy in relation to the company’s unsuccessful attempt to have their Google Voice service appear as an iPhone application.
