- To be honest, the Google Voice Widget doesn't make a lot of sense right off the bat, and seems prone to possible mischief - i.e. a visitor can type any phone number they want into the widget, and it will automatically try to connect that person (perhaps an ex-lover) to you via your phone. (As a result, I'm sadly not posting a working example.) Plus the process involves the other person receiving a phone call with a short, fast message that makes little sense, followed by a ringing sound, as if the person who received the call has now called someone.
