VoxOx 
VoxOx aims to deliver communication services across desktop and mobile devices through VoIP and cloud communications software. It combines video messaging, voice calls, instant messages, SMS, fax, and the ability to include up to 20 people on a conference call.
Like Google Voice, VoxOx gives you a free US phone number that can be used to call or text you across devices. Calls between VoxOx users are free. Calls to non-users cost one cent per minute in the US, but rates vary for other countries.
Some nifty VoxOx features include a personal assistant for intelligent call routing and screening, visual voicemail, and instant language translation.
The company also offers an enterprise-friendly tool called Cloud Phone, which answers, routes, and manages calls. The virtual system is intended to give businesses the flexibility to add users, numbers and extensions as they grow.
