Default Google Voice VoIP Desktop Client Could Be On the Way - 08-04-2010, 21:13

Some people here may find this useful if it really happens: Google Voice VoIP Desktop Client Could Be On the Way
Two blogs now claim, through sources at Google, that a desktop VoIP client for Google Voice is being tested internally. That's an exciting step toward making and receiving calls at your computer, on the same number that rings all your other numbers.

It's a move that's been expected since Google acquired Gizmo5, a voice-over-IP calling service that offered Skype-like connectivity between regular phones and people on computer connections. Google closed down Gizmo5's service to new sign-ups, and much has been quiet on the Gizmo front of late. So it would all seem to add up, and it adds a real value to Google Voice for a growing number of folks who only have a single cellphone number.

Phones: OnePlus 5 • Nexus 5
SIMs: CA Fido/Fongo • AT • Google Fi
R.I.P.: UM • UM+

Yeah it's boring but currently, you can only check your GV account by logging in to your GV account and you need a browser to do that. If they have some desktop app then that would be an addition.
