Nick let me know that Google has announced a new invite system for the popular Google Voice. According to Google, users of Google Voice will soon see an invite link to the left of their inbox. This link will let you invite up to 3 of your friends to try the service. Invites are pretty easy to get either way with a few weeks delay but still its a nice move on Google’s part.
Starting today, we’re beginning to give out invitations to Google Voice users. If you currently use Google Voice, over the next few weeks, you’ll see an "Invite a friend" link appear on the left-hand side of your inbox. We’ll be rolling out these invitations gradually, so don’t worry if you don’t see your invitations immediately. We’re initially giving out three invites to each account, but we’re planning to provide more invitations in the future.
