Google has just bought out GrandCentral Communications for $50 million, mere pocket change for the global phenomenon.
GrandCentral allows users to access multiple phone numbers and voicemails from a single phone, so no more having to carry around multiple phones for work, home and also your blackberry. You will also be able to access and listen to your voicemails online.
It allows users to make calls from any of there phones at a click of a button, call blocking, listen in and text voicemail are just some of the features proposed.
At the moment this service is beta and only look to be offered in the states but no doubt when its success is realised it will be readily available all around the world.
Using GrandCentral on the move will require a web enabled phone with the ability to play mp3’s, however I hope in the future we will be able to accept calls on a Google mobile with all the features of GrandCentral built into it.

Rock on Google.
