VoxOx Is Another Way to Get Free Google Voice on Your Desktop

LifeHacker: "Lifehacker came up with a good way to get free Google Voice calls on your desktop with Sipgate, but Sipgate seems to have run out of free numbers, rending that method broken (for now). VoxOx can do something similar.

Here's the deal: When you sign up for VoxOx you get 1 free number that you can use to hook in to your Google Voice with. You also get free incoming calls (which means incoming AND outgoing calls with Google Voice, cause GV always is the one to call your phone), incoming texts and incoming faxes. Outgoing calls (if you're dialing straight from the VoxOx client), outgoing texts and outgoing faxes cost money. So while you can get incoming texts to your VoxOx account, responding using that IM window is a bad idea, since you get charged about a penny per text."

And this surprises you? I's bet the data is in the servers at the NSA and on certain individuals personal e-mail servers at home too. And not to mention for sale to the highest bidder.

How to listen to, and delete, your Google Now voice history

Google might be eavesdropping more than you had originally imagined, though not on purpose.

Since June 2015, Google has been storing personal data on its users on a website, where users only have access to their own information. The feature works a bit like a digital diary, storing web searches, YouTube history, and (you guessed it!) Google Voice Search history.

That is a pretty nice information stored in there. Google must have been surely using this information to develop an AI to spy on whole world.
