I'm interested in understanding how Google Voice works.

In particular, I'm interested in understanding the feature that places a call to a random number--owned by Google--and how it knows to connect you to the party you are actually trying to reach.

Ideally, I'm looking for official documentation that describes this feature.

Where can I find such information?
