  • Allows you to forward calls to your new Google Voice number to your personal phone, without allowing callers to see your personal phone number.
  • Free service
  • Allows you to record your own voicemail message
  • Google Voice does transcribe voice messages, so it is best to ask callers not to leave sensitive information on VM.
