When Google acquires Gizmo5, a VoIP service that provides P2P VoIP calls and calls with normal landlines and mobile phones, it wasn’t clear as to how Google will possibly use Gizmo5’s technology. Although, Gizmo5 could very well provide Google Voice an endpoint for calls, Google didn’t do much to make this happen, until now.
According to TechCrunch, Google is currently testing a new Google Voice desktop application built on the Gizmo5 technology. This application will finally allow users to make and receive calls from their desktop without needing to attach their Google Voice account to an existing phone number.
The said app is currently under Google’s “dogfooding” system, meaning it is currently being tested by Google employees themselves before putting it out for public beta testing soon. How soon? In a weeks or so perhaps since Google has started testing the app this week.
