Free phone calls from your Gmail! Another useful feature on Gmail, yet to be coming this fall!

Gmail users will be able to make free phone calls from their Gmail account. Calling will be free within U.S. and Canada through 2011.
When calling was added to Gmail back in August, the company said that it’d be making such calls free “for at least the rest of the year,” with per minute rates starting at $0.02 per minute for international dialing.
The service made a major splash initially, with 1 million calls placed in the first 24 hours and pundits predicts that the service is a potential Skype killer.
There is yet no clue for the traction of the service. Free calling for all from 2011, will certainly stand to lure more users.
But I am not yet much aware of this service. Keep me informed, if anyone has any update. I will be reaching out here with tidings if I hear back.


  1. It is a Google Voice app for powering the back-end of this Gmail feature. And user should have this app for Android and iPhone only.

  2. Thanks Rakesh sir for your update.

    I wanted to know more about its persuasive relevance among all users. I also heard about its calling and sound quality is a potential Skype-killer..

    But I could not yet understand,why is this service only through 2011. Would Google make it free calling for all in future?

    Meanwhile we can explore more about this voice app.

  3. When you sign up for Google Voice, you'll get to choose a new phone number. Once you finish setting it up, your outbound calls from Gmail will show up as your Google Voice number. Also, when someone calls your Google Voice number, you can set it to ring your Gmail account as well. It's pretty dang cool.

  4. Phishing is in our own way of hacking, all through that the programmers may send you your record data. Yet, in either case you have must be constrained to contact Gmail Technical Support. They make snappy move and direction you to tidy up infections or malware from your tablet.
