Google Voice comes to Sprint customers, no app or porting required

google voice sprint
Google has made a pair of announcements concerning a tighter partnership with Sprint in the U.S. First, the Nexus S has arrived on Sprint's 4G network. Second, the two companies have worked together to deliver a seamless, app-free Google Voice experience to Sprint customers.

Current Sprint users can now make a painless switch to Google Voice. No number porting is required -- existing Sprint phone numbers will just work. That brings the whole enchilada, including ringing multiple phones from a single number, voice mail transcriptions, and the ability to answer calls in Gmail. Other features include cheap international calling rates, per-caller customized voicemail greetings, call blocking, and call recording.

Interested Sprint customer can flip the Google Voice switch by visiting this page. There's a video that demonstrates the new service after the break.
