Google has launched a new service called Google Voice that looks to compete against Skype and other online phone and calling applications. The app lets users make international phone calls on the cheap and offers a text-to-speech feature for voice mail.

Google was able to offer the new service after acquiring a firm called GrandCentral that offers users a lifetime phone number. The single number allows users to route all phones through the same number. That means home, mobile and office numbers can be the same no matter what the actual phone number is.

A single voice mail account also lets voicemail be left for any number. Domestic calls in the UK will be free, but international calls to land lines will cost 2 cents per minute. Google says that it doesn't view the new service as a threat to other telecoms any more than it views Google Talk as one.
