Google Voice tipped to end in the next few months

It seems as though just yesterday Google and smartphone users were lobbying for Apple to allow Google Voice into the App Store – what a difference a few years makes.
 
A report is now circulating that Google is preparing to kill off Google Voice and integrate similar capabilities into the G+ Hangouts app.
 
Google has been working hard to get more people to use Hangouts, so eliminating Google Voice would be no real surprise. The voice service will be integrated into both the iOS and Android apps allowing the users to make voice calls as they would with the web version of the software.

 
Users will still be able to keep their current Google Voice their own numbers, although we aren’t yet sure if all the intricate features and capabilities of the service will make the cut.
 
9to5Google reckons that Google could make an official announcement at this year’s Google I/O conference.

This would really suck.

I rely on Google Voice for work and International calls.

I have no desire to use Google+.

Looks like I am going to have to go with another VoiP service if Google does this - I wonder if I can keep my number?

Grrr...
