For those who use Google’s services, Google Voice is one of the most useful. It provides free texting and online voicemail. A friend of mine uses Google Voice to unify his phone numbers. For those who use Google Voice, there is a handy Chrome extension that allows you to text and call straight from the menu bar.
The Google Voice extension can be downloaded here, and provides a small, easy-to-use interface. From the extension, you can send a text, place a call, and view your inbox. When you receive a text, a small “ding” goes off. The only major drawback is that the ding isn’t very loud, and could be completely missed while listening to music or watching a video. However, if you use Google Voice on a regular basis, this is a very useful extension.
