Call Phones From Gmail

Google just announced a new feature: Starting today, you can call any phone right from Gmail.

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.

Dialing a phone number works just like a normal phone. Just click “Call phone” at the top of your chat list and dial a number or enter a contact’s name. If you have a Google Voice phone number, calls made from Gmail will display this number as the outbound caller ID.

For more information, visit gmail.com/call.

  1. I don’t see it in my gmail … maybe because I am on a mac.

  2. Actually, it says that calls *within* the US and Canada are free, not calls *to* the US and Canada. Big distinction.

  3. I’m reading: “Calls TO the U.S. and Canada will be free for at least the rest of the year” maybe it was revised.

  4. I have a PowerPC mac so It wont work on my system… (shacking fists in the air) NOOOO!
