This Google+ Hangout was part of the Education On Air conference on May 2, 2012.
Social media messages, SMS messages, voicemails, and all of your email accounts have traditionally been split across multiple services and devices. This can hinder productivity and make management of your online presence difficult.
Google to the rescue! Using a combination of Gmail and Google Voice you can turn your inbox into the heart of your digital life. During this session, we will discuss how with just a few clicks of your mouse your voicemails, SMS messages, email accounts, and even your Facebook and Twitter updates can be magically added to Gmail. Get ready to take your inbox to a whole new level and become more productive AND Googely with Gmail and Google Voice!
