I was SHOCKED SUPRISED and PLEASED to check my email today ( 27 th August 2010 ) and see a message pop up from google saying that i will be “make calls to the US and UK for free In 2010”
Google Now is offering Free online calls from Gmail only to US AND CANADA
The pop up i got in my Gmail today above
“make calls to the US and UK for free In 2010”
Google is launching a new call service from gmail , what it essentially does is , you canCall anywhere in the US and Canada for free and get low rates for other countries with this small plugin from google — right from within Gmail.
This will definitely change the game for many telephone and VOIP phone call providers who are charging premiums for this sort of free service that google is now giving.
Google announced today that over one million calls were placed using Gmail’s free calling service in its first 24 hours.
The service officially launched in US and Canada but a Google spokeswoman confirmed that “Aussies who have their Gmail language set to English US will see that the feature is available to them too”.
However, the spokeswoman said only outgoing calls would work for Australians as incoming calls required the Google Voice application, which has not yet been made available to Australians. In the US, people who obtain a free phone number from Google can receive calls on their PC.
Users start with $US0.10 credit, which can be topped up using Australian credit cards.
