Anyone else using Google Voice yet? It's kind of a neat tool, it'll be interesting to see how they add this to the google wave and gmail.

I don't think they have started giving out public invites. It looks like it's a google invite only.

Any word on when Google Wave is coming out. I'm really interested to see how it all works.

Considering running a PBeM rpg on Wave, maybe easier then email.

So would that be a PBWave?

i think that's the case as well, but google may be close to sending out more invites soon as i read a news article recently that they had bought up about a million new phone numbers for the service

Is this some sort of viral marketing scam, where you have to be invited to use the product?

i had a grandcentral account before google bought them and it got converted over to google voice. i don't think it has anything to do with it being viral, it's just in a closed beta phase right now

Essentially yes. It's cool, as you get a free number in your area code. I lucked out and matched it close to my Cell number. Here you can attach as many different phones as you wish for forwarding and such. All in state calls are free, and they charge only for overseas calls. It is a great way to store voice mail, and voicemail transcription. You can create groups like gmail that would receive differing messages, and you can point certain callers to voicemail, call forwarding, or if it's spam or unknown caller, straight to the trash. You also get to send SMS and receive SMS, conference calling, etc, etc.

I will use it as a number I will give out before my real phones #.

The big plus, it's all free.
