Kirkland-based GotVoice said today that it is providing a new free service that lets people create and send voicemails to their family and friends from Santa Claus.
The "Voicemail from Santa" service is designed for children and adults.
The company said it takes less than a minute to construct a message from Santa by selecting from various options, such as whether recipients are boys or girls or whether they have been naughty or nice.
Messages from Santa include things like "Ho, ho, ho!," and that they have been good this year, so they will get presents.
When not at the North Pole, GotVoice provides a service that allows users to access their voicemail in their e-mail inbox or in their personal GotVoice Web page. The company said about 35,000 people already use the service today.
