This Is How Google Voice Will Ruin Your Relationships

Illustration for article titled This Is How Google Voice Will Ruin Your Relationships

Long ago, someone wrote about how Google is out to control your dog and marry your wife. I don't know how right he was about all that, but I certainly know that Google Voice is out to ruin relationships.


You see, reader Pascal wrote us about a recent experience he had with Google Voice's transcription feature:

I recently set up Google Voice on my wife's new Nexus One, and today I was leaving work late and left her a voice mail whilst there was some background noise in the rain admittedly.

My message was supposed to be something like " Hey babe, I've just left work, its about 7:15. I'll see you at home. Bye. "


Pictured above is what his wife saw as a result of a voice transcription mangling. It reads like a dirty confession about Pascal's upbringing, drinking habits, and age.

Of course I'm exaggerating about something like this ruining a relationship, but it could certainly create some temporary confusion. Especially if you call your girl to tell her about the "trucking stunt" you saw earlier in the day. [Thanks, Pascal!]
