Google Voice on Android is right there in the top after Google Maps, as one of the most useful applications I have on my phone. Here are a few highlights, which are not immediately intuitive and Google ought to be selling this.
- It gives you the option to dial through Google voice every time you make a call. And the number it dials from is different from your cellphone number. And you can also receive calls on that same number.
- They have international dialing at competitive pricing. Even if they are charging you a little more than another service, it is so much easier to dial the international number directly and choose Google voice when dialing. This avoids the hassle of calling an in-between number before you call the final number trough your regular calling card service.
- Calling to Canada is FREE! This means that you can avoid charges placed by your carrier service to dial Canadian numbers.
