Following the reports by TechCrunch on whether Google would be buying telephone management startup company, GrandCentral, the official Google blog announces that they have acquired GrandCentral Communications.
"If you have multiple phone numbers (e.g., home, work, cell), you get one phone number that you can set to ring all, some, or none of your phones, based on who's calling. This way, your phone number is tied to you, and not your location or job. The service also gives you one central voice mailbox. We're really excited to welcome the GrandCentral team to Google. While we're moving their technology over to Google's network, a limited number of invitations will be available to register for a GrandCentral beta account. If you have a U.S. telephone number, you can sign up for an invitation at www.grandcentral.com. "
Present GrandCentral Communicatons can continue to use their service.
