Google Voice invites start flowing

Following a tasty spot with NBC’s Janet Shamlian on NBC’s Today Show this morning, it looks as though Google Voice has taken a big step toward wider availability today. According to GV’s Twitter account, invites are starting to go out en masse. Now, don’t start going crazy if you’ve registered for an invite and don’t see anything hit your inbox today — as Google Voice head Craig Walker notes, the waiting list is a bit lengthy to say the least:

About GV invites…there’s a pretty long list as you can imagine…will take a little bit to get through them all:)

In due time, in due time. Again, Google Voice was spawned from Google’s acquisition of GrandCentral — the all-in-one voice calling/voicemail management solution. The service provides, among other things, a single number that can be given out to contacts. When dialed, GV will ring any and all numbers you wish simultaneously — your cell, home, office, etc — and will transcribe and manage your voicemails as well. The service is free and it also affords users free nationwide calling (and cheap international calling). In a nutshell, it’s big time. Hit the jump to see the GV spot from this morning’s Today Show and hit your inbox with the hope that an invite is ready and waiting.

Thanks, Justin!
