It seems like everyone these days is talking about Google Voice 3 way call and its new feature of unlimited free calls to any mobile phone. If you don’t own a Google Phone or use Google Voice already, then the ability to make cheap international long-distance phone calls using your Google Voice account should be very appealing to you. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work quite as you would expect from a free conference call. That’s because Google Voice is actually a very expensive call option.
Two ways for long-distance calls
There are two ways that you can make long-distance calls with Google Voice. The first is to go through a virtual conference call provider such as Google Voip or Ventrillo. This is something that will work for you if you have a reasonably fast internet connection and access to a high-speed cellular network. If not, or if you have a poor connection, then this won’t be very helpful to you.
The other way that you can make a long-distance call with Google Voice is to purchase an inexpensive call option through Google. The one drawback to this is that this call option costs you per minute. So if you call a country that does not use the US dollar as its currency, then your call may end up costing you more than you bargained for.
Not Only Conference Calling
Google Voice is not the only conference calling option that you have available to you. International calling has become a very popular choice in the telecommunications world. Many people are now able to make inexpensive calls internationally from their computers. This is done simply by converting your Google Voice number into an international calling code. You can also do this for certain toll-free phone numbers, so if you have one in Canada, for example, simply move the call to a toll-free number.
This is an extremely easy way to stay connected with your friends and family no matter where they are located. Imagine being able to make a low-cost, long-distance international conference call for as little as $2.50 per minute! You could easily take the whole family on an exciting international vacation or gather together with coworkers for a lively discussion on important issues. Conference calling makes it simple to stay in touch no matter where you are. Try it out today!
If you are still not convinced about how much you can save each year when using conference calling Google Voice 3 way call, you should know that you can set up multiple virtual lines to save even more money each month. For Instance, If you have a large family or want to make international calls often, then set up multiple virtual lines is a great way to do it. If you just need to make a few long-distance calls each year, then a standard long-distance plan will work just fine.
Features of Google Voice
Google Voice comes with a number of features that will delight even the most avid phone user. The one feature that really excites me is the call reminder. I have a tendency to forget to dial my phone after I leave the office. The call reminder reminds me to pick up my phone so I don’t miss any important calls. Since I get so many calls in such a short period of time, this saves me a lot of time each day. In addition to the call reminder, Google Voice also reminds me when I am out of minutes so I don’t run out of service during important meetings.
A great feature that goes along with Google Voice is the ability to dial my voice mail to see who has sent me a particular message. I love this feature because I can go through my voice mail before I go to the office and make sure that I’ve picked up important messages. I can also check the voicemail every few hours to make sure that I haven’t missed any important business calls. As you can probably see, the convenience and benefits that Google Voice offers to business owners like me can’t be beaten. Go ahead and give Google Voice a try; you’ll be glad you did.
How to make Google Voice 3-Way Call?
We all know that we can make a call to someone using our phone and it’s easy. However, what if you have two people on the other end of the line? Has either of you ever tried to do this with your phone? It was awkward because one person had to talk over the other. If you’re looking for an easier way, I’ll tell you how Google Voice is making 3-way calls simple as 1-2-3!
1. First, you’re going to need a Google Voice account and a phone number that can make calls. For example, I’m going to use the Google Voice app from an Android phone on Sprint because I have unlimited data but even if you don’t have unlimited data this will still work since it’s all free over Wi-Fi. You can also do this with any other type of smartphone including iPhone iPad more, etc.
2. Next step is going to your contacts list in order to add someone new onto the call that you’re about to place(first person). Go ahead and open up your Contacts then click on the ‘+’ to add a new contact.
3. Once you have done that, click on the ‘Call phone’ and place your call just like normal but for step 2 you will need to choose a ‘phone number’ instead of a contact from your list and it’ll ask if it’s ok to make this phone calls(second person). Tell them it’s Google calling.
Step 3: Now do steps 1 & 2 again one more time with another contact(third person). Just chose the call phone option then select the last person in order to complete the 3-way Google Voice conference call! Voila, how easy is that?!!
