I’m sure by now most of you have heard the news of Google buying GrandCentral.com. So what is GrandCentral?
In their words:
With GrandCentral, you can be reached with a single number, answer a call at any phone you want, seamlessly switch phones in the middle of a call, and even know whether a call is important before you take it.
When you first create a GrandCentral account you are asked to pick a real phone number. Your phone number choices depend on what zip code you entered during registration.
I, of course, had to keep scrolling through the suggested numbers to find one that fit my “style”. I ended up with 317-973-0187. Cool right?
GrandCentral launched in September 2006, but Google wasted no time realizing these guys were on to something and quickly gobbled them up.
As of this post GrandCentral is invite only. If you would like an invite contact me and I’ll send one over!
With Google backing GrandCentral it’s safe to say we can expect big things in the future! Maybe even an API? Please?!
