I absolutely love when someone calls me and I am not able to reach the phone. Usually it is because I am busy with my kids or with someone else on the phone.. but this is why – because Google Voice will not only take the message for you but they will also transcribe it. And yes – this is connected to your Gmail account through Google.
Now the transcription is not 100% accurate but I can definitely say that reading the transcription adds some humor to your life! — and then of course I can sign in to Google Voice to listen to the message the earliest that I can.
I have 3 invites available – Google Voice does NOT cost me anything. And I highly recommend getting a Google Number which also does NOT cost me anything and you will get the very cool widget that you can put on your site – just like I did. Again – this service is available by invitation only!
Check out my contact page and feel free to call me if you want to see how it works. Take care!
