Google Introduces Gmail Voice Calls, Free to US and Canada

Rumors have been saying this last night, but Google makes it official and introduces Voice Calls in Gmail. Now phone calls is an option in the web-based Google’s mail, it’s fairly cheap, it ranges between $0.02 and $0.19 a minute and free to US and Canada!

Google announced that you’ll be able to make calls to US and Canada completely free of charge. You’ll be able to buy prepaid credits using Google Checkout for international landline calling at $0.02 a minute and up to $0.19 for calls to international mobile device.

Calls to the U.S. and Canada will be free for at least the rest of the year and calls to other countries will be billed at our very low rates. We worked hard to make these rates really cheap (see comparison table) with calls to the U.K., France, Germany, China, Japan—and many more countries—for as little as $0.02 per minute.

Incoming calls pop up as a chat window in Gmail and you press a “Call phone” button that appears near the top of the Chat window to send an outbound call, Also you can copy and paste numbers or tap them in manually! Much better now? Try it and tell us.
