Google Voice assigns you a new free phone number and integrates it with powerful telephone enhancing features and a contact management system. This phone number acts as a hub for all your other phone numbers. You can accept text messages online, read your voice-mails, and direct calls to your current numbers based on predefined rules you assign.
A day where you will no longer need a wallet is coming. You can already make one-click mobile payments with Google Wallet, an Android app. The service aims to be better than a wallet by allowing you to store credit cards, debit cards, loyalty cards, and gift cards in the cloud for use via your smartphone.

Cell phone carriers are blocking the company’s mobile payment app. Many of the nation’s largest retailers are refusing to take Google Wallet payments. This is to buy time. Everyone is working on their own mobile payment processing app while they stall Google Wallet. To become the de facto standard for mobile payment processing, Google Wallet needs a miracle.
