TechCrunch reports today that Google is dog-fooding (using and testing internally) a desktop app that lets you make Google Voice calls.

Google announced the acquisition of Gizmo5 last year, a company with an app that provides Internet based calling software for mobile phones and land lines. At that time they pointed out the Gizmo5 folks would be joining the Google Voice team and working to enhance Google Voice for the future: “Gizmo5's engineers will be joining the Google Voice team to continue improving the Google Voice and Gizmo5 experience.”

This is something to look forward to. Google Voice is a great service, and filling in some of the gaps in the current offering would round it out quite well.

UPDATE: At Download Squad, their sources inside Google indicate that something is coming, as well: “…Google sources have confirmed this as well, saying "We're looking at a full, free, VOIP/SMS desktop client...It's amazing.”
