Google Voice Adds Circles – The Apocalypse is Upon Us!

In a terse blog statement, Google announced that Google Voice would add Google+ circles adding a social network management strategy to Google Voice. Now you can organize your contacts into specific circles that actually ring your mobile device (family, mom, dad, friends), while ex-lovers, telemarketers, and stalkers go straight to voicemail jail! dancingYou can also add custom greetings to each Circle. From the Google Voice Blog:

To help make it even easier for you to organize your contacts, today we’re adding Google+ Circles to Google Voice. Circles give you more control over how you manage your callers; for example, calls from your “Creepers” circle can be sent straight to Voicemail, only your “College Buddies” circle will hear you rap your voicemail greeting, or you can set your “Family” circle to only ring your mobile phone. You can customize your Circles settings by visiting the Groups & Circles tab in your Google Voice settings.

Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Wow, Google is really tying together all their products quite nicely. Search, Email, video (YouTube), video conferencing (Google Hangouts), social media (Google+), and even automated driverless vehicles. It’s scary how connected Google is in our lives. Won’t be long now before Skynet (Google) connects to everything, achieves conscious thought, and we have to deal with the Terminator – not to mention a global apocalypse.
