Get ready to say ‘goodbye’ to accidental boss calls and ‘hello’ to voicemail transcriptions: Google Voice now allows number porting! #GoogleVoiceGotGame #NumberPortingNirvana #TheEndOfBossCallBlunders
It looks like Google Voice is up to something sneaky again. According to the folks over at TechTimes, Google Voice is now allowing users to port their existing mobile numbers over to the service. But why, you ask? Let’s take a closer look.
First off, let’s talk about what Google Voice even is. For those of you who have been living under a rock (or just don’t care about this stuff), Google Voice is a service that lets you make and receive calls, send texts, and listen to voicemails, all from a single phone number. It’s like having a personal assistant in your pocket, except it’s just an app on your phone.
So, why would you want to port your existing mobile number over to Google Voice? Well, for starters, it can help you keep your personal and business calls separate. No more accidentally answering your boss’s calls with a casual “sup, dude?” Or, if you’re a real baller, you can have multiple numbers on the same phone (mind-blowing, we know).
But there’s more! By using Google Voice, you can also take advantage of all the other cool features that come with it, like call screening, voicemail transcriptions, and even the ability to block unwanted callers (sorry, Aunt Mildred).
Now, before you go rushing off to port your number over to Google Voice, there are a few things to keep in mind. For starters, there may be fees involved (because of course there are). And depending on your carrier and phone plan, you may not be able to use all the features of Google Voice.
So, is it worth it? Well, that’s up to you to decide. But if you’re looking to streamline your communication and have a little fun in the process, it might be worth giving Google Voice a try. Just be prepared for a few fees and maybe a little confusion along the way.
