Google Confirms Acquisition of GrandCentral
We’re pleased to announce that we have acquired GrandCentral Communications, a company that provides services for managing your voice communications. GrandCentral is an innovative service that lets users integrate all of their existing phone numbers and voice mailboxes into one account, which can be accessed from the web. We think GrandCentral’s technology fits well into Google’s efforts to provide services that enhance the collaborative exchange of information between our users.
The GrandCentral team share their excitement over at their company blog.
Speculation is that this might help Google assign telephone numbers to Google Talk’s voice capabilities, giving them a Skype competitor – which I’m sure eBay will just love!
