    Google Voice Tested For Google Desktop

    Yesterday, sources say Google has now built a Google Voice desktop application to make and receive calls. While Google already has a desktop calling application — Google Talk allows users to place calls from their desktop — the functionality only extends to other users of the Google Talk network.
