This time Google India Labs have come up with a new product called Google Noticeboard. Basically it’s an Add-on of Firefox 3 and requires Windows XP. Officially, Google Noticeboard is to share information over the internet using public digital Noticeboards.
Now, what is different in Google Noticeboards from public forums or Google groups? The primary distinguishing feature is its capability to inter-exchange voice messages along with text messages. Google Noticeboard has to be configured initially over the shared computers. This configuration is done by an operator, but later no operator intervention is required.
The voice and text messaged can be stored in computers hard-disk and can be used even if there is no internet connectivity. Since, it’s a public tool all you need is an email id. Even if you don’t have Noticeboard installed in your system, you can always listen to voice messages as email attachments.

Information can be voice or text and will be delivered to members on time. So, we can expect that higher productivity can be delivered using this simple tool.
