Much like Google Wallet, Google Voice integration was somewhat of an exclusive feature that Sprint had to lord over its competition, but now it looks like Google could be looking to offer that service to the other carriers according to Vincent Paquet, the Group Product Manager for Google Voice, who also revealed that the partnership with Sprint has been successful, a success which we’re guessing Google is hoping to recreate with other carriers. Unfortunately he declined to name which of the other carriers the company are in talks with.
For those who might not have access to Google Voice or is unfamiliar with it, it is basically a service that allows Sprint customers to turn their handset numbers into Google Voice numbers, allowing them to access visual voicemail that can be read on the phone or online, personalized greetings, free messaging and cheaper international call rates. If the talks were to be successful, it looks like Sprint might have to find a new way to give themselves an edge over the competition.
