5 Year Old Google Voice Shut Down Last Week – Resurrect with Google Hangouts
What Has Google Voice Done in Its 5 Year Life?
The birth of Google Voice in 2009 was indeed a stunning welcome to Google Users as it promised to reduce the communication charges considerably. Along with the standard feature of sending and receiving text messages, the jackpot was the luxury of receiving and calling, both domestic and international destinations, all from your computer. This added a colorful bunch of feathers to Google’s fragile Hall of Fame. The users of this app crossed a million and more in just 5-7 months, and reached around 3.5 million by 2013.
Has It Been a Leeching Burden All along – Merits and Demerits
Google voice promised a lucid mirage to force the customers into believing that all the services were direct, clear and stress-free. The reality, gradually over the years, made its rapid fade in all user web interfaces. It appeared as if the fault was all part of network mishaps or connection errors. Finally, when the errors and mishaps continued to remain in the same danger zone, with no hope for recovery or progress, users understood that the cleverly planned fraudulent schemes were the company’s own manufacturing defect and not theirs.
