Following our last post discussing Google Meet and the myriad video conferencing services businesses of all shapes and sizes are incorporating into their remote work realities, we are excited to announce that InfoStreet has added Google Voice to the InfoStreet App Market.

Why is this important? Because in a world where Google has created so many iterations of talk and text applications), it seems like Google Voice is coming back into its own. More specifically, Google Voice is the top contender when it comes to affordable voice calling and messaging for personal or business needs. 

Which is important, of course, but why is it important for small businesses specifically?

Voice makes work calls less work. Make and receive phone calls using a work number on any device, anywhere. - Google

How and where we work have changed drastically, and will likely continue to evolve in the here-and-now, but also in a post-COVID-19 workplace.

Communication and collaboration have always been important in businesses of all sizes, but they are even more important now. And while the G Suite (FYI, we are currently offering lifetime discounts on select G Suite plans!) as a whole continues to innovate when it comes to connecting everyone within a business, phones remain omnipresent in the communications ecosystem. FYI, Google Voice is now an optional G Suite add-on.

Here’s a quick rundown:

Google Voice enables organizations of all sizes a simple way to deploy and manage phone numbers at scale with the intelligence and security of Google Cloud. With a Google Voice phone number, employees are never tied to a physical device to make and receive phone calls, text messages or access voicemail. Plus, intelligent capabilities like voicemail transcription and smart SPAM-call detection help minimize unwanted distractions.

Also, voicemail transcription and smart SPAM detection are compelling features alone.

From a device perspective, you’re essentially turning your mobile phone into a two-in-one tool. Both your work number and mobile number can be used on one device with Google Voice. You can send and receive texts from both numbers and record calls, making remote work even more frictionless.
