上个月就听说 Google Voice 服务的出台。作为 GrandCentral 的老用户当然能猜到这个 Google Voice 肯定是 GC 的一个升级。所以就在等转换的通知。昨天总算“盼”到了Google的来信了（附下）。也不知彻底转过去后有什么本质的变化，待我真正使用再报告吧。
Google, Google Voice, GrandCentral, 网络电话
Hello GrandCentral User,
We are happy to announce that GrandCentral has been upgraded and is relaunching as Google Voice. While not yet open to the public, we wanted to give you, our GrandCentral users, the first opportunity to start using Google Voice.
In addition to the GrandCentral features you already know, we’ve added voicemail transcription, SMS support, conference calling, Goog411, enhanced spam protection and low-priced international calling. We have also integrated GrandCentral with your Google Account and your Google Contacts list.
To upgrade your account to Google Voice, just log in to your GrandCentral account and follow the directions at the top of your inbox. Upon upgrading, your GrandCentral number, PIN, and forwarding phones will be moved to Google Voice.
Note that since Google Voice uses the Google address book, your GrandCentral contacts will not be imported automatically. You can import your GrandCentral address book with these instructions. You will also need to recreate any individual/group settings and greetings.
After you upgrade, all your new voicemails will be accessible at Google Voice, while all prior messages will remain available at GrandCentral.
Thanks for being a great GrandCentral user and we hope you enjoy Google Voice!
Craig, Vincent, and the Google Voice team
