Ask Daley: About Google Voice and Viber

Ask Daley: About Google Voice and Viber

Welcome to the first installment of a new feature here at Technical Meshugana I’d like to call Ask Daley. Today’s question comes from Louis:

Hey Daley,
I had a quick tech question for you… I was thinking about the Google Voice program for my phones… I tried to find info on it but I’m not sure I understand… Is this a service that actually lets me talk for free anywhere? Or is it like the app I recently downloaded called viber that requires wifi to talk and text for free?  I don’t have access to wifi at work (which, sadly, I’m at most of the day and am not tethered to any wifi signals while I’m out and about)… So, I was thinking that if this actually let me talk free it would be awesome… (frankly, it sounds too good to be true)

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Louis
