Google Voice aggragates multiple different phone numbers and turns them into a single Google Voice number, it also enables users to send and recieve text messages for free. Users in the US can also place domestic calls for free, or $0.01 per minute to place calls elsewhere.

The service was launched in 2009 by Google, and has 1.4 million users in the US. The app was initially rejected by Apple as it competed with the core Phone functionality, although Apple later approved the app following a FCC inquiry.
