Google has introduced a new service to its mobile services called Google Voice. Voice will give customers free local calls, cheap international calls and a speech-to-text feature for voicemail.

Google has strengthened its mobile services with the debut of a service called Voice that could be a challenge to Skype and other phone firms.

It lets customers make cheap international calls and gives them a speech-to-text feature for voicemail.

The services are available thanks to Google's acquisition of phone firm GrandCentral which gives users a lifelong universal phone number.
