my note: the alternative for VoIP is growing – next to Skype, Google hangouts, FB Messenger to mention only view, not Google and Snapchat are elbowing their way… Free options for education. It will be difficult to standardize; who will provide a platform, which will allow to pole students what of all those choices they want to use for education?
Google just announced a new service called Fiber Phone — here’s how it works
If you’ve used Google Voice, Google’s app that provides select phone services, then many of Fiber Phone’s features will be familiar to you. You’ll get cheap international-calling options and be able to choose your own phone number, and your voicemails will be transcribed and texted to you. It also includes spam filtering and a “do not disturb” function.
Fiber Phone will be available only as a $10-per-month add-on
Snapchat is maturing by playing catch up.
Snapchat now allows people to make voice calls, send audio messages, and send video messages.
