First of all, what is a Google Voice? Google Voice is basically a service introduced by Google as a revolutionary way of telephoning. With Google Voice you will be assigned to a Google voice number that can automatically link to any of your mobile devices and even landlines. The service is free especially for the calls made in the US and Canada. However, in other parts of the world, certain google voice rates are charged. With a Google voice number you can actually screen your caller and have the flexibility of not using your personal private number for any advertising or business for privacy and confidentiality reason. So, how to get a Google Voice number?

First of all, you need to have a Google account. So, if you already have a Gmail account, you are good to go. All you need to do is go to the Google voice website that is at google.com/voice. If you are already logged into your Google account, you will see your login name at the top right of the google voice homepage. If you have not setup your Google Voice number, you will probably not see any call history in that homepage. However, you will see on the left side of the panel that says ‘Get a Voice number’. Click on that link and the prompt will ask you whether you want a new number or to use your existing mobile number. So, if you want a new google voice number, just click at ‘I want a new number’. There you will ask to fill up your area codes and also to choose on the numbers that you want. Please note once selected the number will be permanent and you need to pay additional $10 to change the number. You can also link-up your mobile phone number to the Google voice number by setting up in the forwarding phone settings in the Google voice.
