Google Voice opens up testing for data-only VoIP calls

  Google Voice opens up testing for data-only VoIP calls Google Voice has long been helpful for receiving phone calls regardless of the device you're using. There are caveats. The beta feature can't use incoming call recording or transfer options when you switch on data. Key Bluetooth audio functions are missing (including button control to answer or hang up), and Obihai voice-over-IP devices won't work. This is a test in the truest sense, with known major bugs and an expectation that you'll provide feedback. All the same, the beta could be worth a try if Voice's use of the conventional phone network frequently creates hassles.

McCann died Sunday of congestive heart failure in a Los Angeles hospital, according to his publicist Edward Lozzi.

McCann was born Sept. 2, 1934 in Brooklyn. He became a household name in New York when he took over a variety show, entertaining a generation of children with light-hearted humor and puppets.

In 1968, McCann appeared in his first major film: "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter." He expanded his work into animation acting and created the voice of Sonny the Cuckoo Bird, who cried "I'm cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!" in commercials for General Mills.

He moved to Los Angeles in the 1970s and made guest appearances on shows including "Little House on the Prairie," ''Bonanza," and "Columbo."

McCann was a prolific voice actor, lending his voice to characters such as Mayor Grafton on "The Garfield Show," Ducksworth in "DuckTales: Remastered," and Heff Heffalump in Disney's "The New Adventures of Winnie The Pooh."
