Google Voice coming to Europe, testing now live

Google Voice is now being tested in Europe, Google's European Director of Business Development, Jens Redmer, told TheNextWeb. Redmer was answering questions at the European Pirate Summit in Cologne, Germany and stated that the company is taking "concrete action" on bringing Google Voice to Europe. The trials will also lead to an international launch of the service.

Exactly when the service will launch in Europe isn't being revealed. Redmer did say that rather than just the engineering and technical changes required for Voice to work in Europe, there are also potential legislative issues to deal with.

Redmer said he is using Google Voice in Europe and gets the most use from the voicemail transcription service. The Google Voice service in the US otherwise offers users a single phone for all phones, call screening and low-cost international calls.
