5 Reliable Alternatives To Google Voice
One of the hectic parts of our daily routine is managing the calls coming on different numbers including mobile, home and work phone. However, now a user can easily manage all his numbers through a single device using Google Voice (GV).
With GV, your children and wife will not be disturbed if someone from your work contacts gives a call on your home phone as its smart call forwarding feature will recognize the number and forward it to your work or mobile number.
Similarly, you can decide which calls you want to receive on which numbers depending upon the time. In case you do not want to miss any important call from work contacts after 5 PM, you can simply set the timer and it will redirect the calls to your other number after the provided time.
