Google Voice for Android

Google Voice for Android

CNET is reporting that it has been told by Google Voice’s senior product manager, Vincent Paquet, that an application for Google Voice is headed to Android and BlackBerry based smartphones.

Google Voice is the rebranded version of GrandCentral, which Paquet was co-founder, that allows users to route calls to a single Google Voice number to multiple devices.  The Google Voice application for smartphones will allow calls to be made from the smartphone and have the Google Voice number show up in the caller ID information when received by another person.  The application will also provide access to Google Voice’s transcribed email service, offering what some will consider to be even better than the popular “visual voicemail” systems that are on offer by some carriers.

The application is set to be available today from the Android Market and the Google Mobile website.
