Need international phone numbers for your business? Something for your business cards or website?
It’s a major feature upgrade we just released for Gmail Phone.
Here’s a quick video we made for you:
International Phone Numbers
International numbers work the same as U.S. numbers.
By default, your new number will behave like an automated personal answering service.
Instead of ringing your phone, a call to your Gmail Phone number will prompt the user to leave a voicemail.
That voicemail will be forwarded to your Gmail inbox for you to review:
Users can also send text messages to Gmail Phone numbers. Text messages will also be forwarded instantly to your Gmail account:
This is perfect if you want to offer an international contact number for your business—without a lot of expense.
Longer Text Messages
In addition to international phone numbers, Gmail Phone now also supports text messages up to 1,600 characters in the U.S., U.K., and Canada.
That’s roughly 300 words of space for your contacts to explain their most detailed thoughts and opinions.
