Google Voice Being Tested on PC's at the 'plex!

Here’s some exciting news  for you Google Voice users.  TechCrunch is reporting that Google is testing Voice on PC’s, allowing employees to make calls via their desktops.  This is a departure from having to link Google Voice numbers to an actual mobile phone or landline.

Google is “dogfooding” this application right now, which means that they are eating their own “food” in house and having employees test and use the software.  This type of application is seen to be the answer as to why Google acquired Gizmo5 last Fall, which was a competitor to Skype and other VoIP products.  There is no official launch date for a full rollout as of yet.  Most likely,  we will see it in  “beta” form, true to Google’s style.  Here’s to looking out for the launch of this new desktop application soon!
