Big news. Google has just announced the public availability of Google Voice to everyone in the US, no invitation required.

Google Voice lets users give out one phone number that will ring their desk phones, home phones, or cell phones when the number gets called. It also translates voice mail into text and allows users to place calls from a Web-based Google Voice console.

If you’re based outside of the US, still no word on availability unfortunately but you should absolutely give Ribbit a try if it’s available in your country.

If you’re in the US its still worth giving Ribbit a try, but I suspect you’re clearly more likely to want to get signed up with G Voice first.
