A Few New Things I Learned About Google Voice Today

I have been using #Google Voice since the spring of 2008 (when it was still #GrandCentral, which has a way nicer interface). It has saved me a lot of cash over those years.

It has also allowed me to give out one number which can call up to 5 other numbers (follow me system). It has been extremely useful to say the least. Though it is far from perfect. :)

I really wish when they took over GrandCentral that they would have kept the interface and all the same tools, it was sooo much better than.

So what did I learn new today?

1. You cannot add the same number to more than one Google Voice account. This is a real bummer as I have one setup for personal and another for the new business my partner @LarryRivera and I are creating.

Apparently they use to let you do this but no longer. Why they take away the good features is beyond me!

I will let you know if I come up with any free or cheap solutions to this. One friend @JasonDandridge recommended getting a #Skype Incoming Number.

2. I learned that you can conference with up to 3 other people and record it. This is great for when you need to have a small business conference or don’t have 3-way calling enabled on your home phone.

See how to easily use Google Voice’s Conference Call here:


If you ever need to do a teleconference for more people say 250+ for free… Then I suggest another gem I have been using since 2008 too (good year for finding valuable free tools for me apparently, lol) which is www.TalkShoe.com.

If you ever want to know a tool that is either insanely cheap or free yet still works totally great, then just ask me… Chances are I already know a solution or can find one for you. I love researching and saving $$$.
