Google Voice Testing Out Number Porting

Posted Jan 20, 2011

Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) is testing out a number porting feature on Google Voice. This makes screening calls and managing multiple phone numbers very easy. Number porting is currently only available for a small number of users since it is in test mode.

?We?re continually testing new features to enhance the user experience. For a limited amount of time, we?re making the Google Voice number porting process available to users. We don?t have any additional details to share at this time, but plan to offer this feature to all users in the near future,? said Google in a statement.

Giving your phone number to Google may be a tough experience because you have to pay $20 to Google and you may have to pay an early termination fee depending on your current phone provider. If you are a newbie using Google Voice, it may be confusing to use initially. You also have to get used to one number ringing multiple phone numbers.
