I've been playing with a new service from Google called GrandCentral. They let me select a phone number from any area code in the U.S. (I picked one from Silicon Valley) and now if you call that number, it will automatically ring my mobile phone here on Mercer Island. There are a zillion other cool features, like
- Call screening for voicemail: I can listen to somebody record a message, then decide if I want to answer immediately.
- Voicemails are emailed to me as attached audio files
- Record calls on the fly
- Switch phones in the middle of a phone call
and much more.
Try it yourself! Call me, right now, just by clicking the following button:
