Google has added Google Voice to its menu of services that it lets you remove your data from – otherwise known as Google Takeout.

Google Takeout itself was announced in June as an extension of the Data Liberation Front, which dubbed the service its “first revolutionary product”.

“This means that all of the data associated with your Google Voice account, from your call history to voicemail messages, greetings and call recordings, is now available for download,” explains Google software engineer Anthony Jawad. “Voicemail messages and greetings are exported as mp3s, text messages as microformatted html, and forwarding phone numbers as a card.”

Other services that allow you to retrieve data using Google Takeout include: Google Buzz, Contacts and Circles, Picasa Web Albums, +1s, Stream and your Google Profile.
