Google Voice is still available only in the United States and only to people lucky enough to have received invites from friends. Invites are limited, however, leaving many people anxiously waiting to try Google’s voicemail and call management service.
If you are a student, or anyone who still has access to a .edu address, you can get Google Voice right now. Google announced today that anyone who visits Google.com/voice/students and enters a valid email address that ends in “.edu” should receive an invite within the next 24 hours.
The page is for students, but I’m sure many of you realize that some universities/colleges make .edu addresses remain valid for a short period after graduation (I used mine for nearly 6 months after I finished school). Also, there’s nothing that I can see stopping professors, faculty, or university personnel who have .edu addresses from trying their luck as well.
