Google to shut down GrandCentral website

As stated in an email to GrandCentral users, Google will shut down the website to their earlier telephone service prior to Google Voice, on December 31, 2009.

Users were upgraded to Google Voice earlier this year, but old GrandCentral messages are still stored on the old website. Google suggests that those who wish to keep their messages, download them before the December deadline.

The email reads as follows:

Date: November 20, 2009 11:55:25 PM PST
Subject: The GrandCentral website is shutting down – GrandCentral is now Google Voice.

Dear GrandCentral User:

We're writing to let you know that we will be closing down the GrandCentral website as of December 31, 2009.

All GrandCentral accounts were upgraded to Google Voice earlier this year, but since that time, you've still been able to log-in to your GrandCentral account and listen to old messages there. You will no longer be able to log-in to your GrandCentral account after December 31. Because of this, we strongly suggest downloading any messages or contacts that you want to keep in the next 43 days.

We will send you another reminder before closing down the site, but we suggest you take action now to download any information you want to keep.

- The Google Voice Team

Closing GrandCentral is one of the many changes being made before Google Voice opens to the public shortly.
