Google officially providing free calls

Written by josh on November 5th, 2012

Google has officially announced it will provide free voice calls through its Gmail service. Gmail’s VoIP service will allow users to make free national calls to the U.S. and Canada. You can also use Google Voice to call internationally. For example, calls to India cost only 2 cents a minute. Calls to France and Germany cost 10 cents a minute.

Google is seriously stepping its game up. This VoIP service makes Google an even more serious challenger to Skype. I for one already use Google Hangouts more than I use Skype. Google is creating a consolidated communications center. Your space to check your email and chat is also your space to video chat and make free calls. I personally love this centrality.



The official Google Mail blog says calls to the U.S. and Canada will be free for the rest of the year. Who knows what will happen after 2012.

You will need to install the voice and video plug in to use Google Voice.

A cool feature is if you’re in the military overseas, you can call home for free no matter where you are. Calling troops abroad costs 2 cents per minute.
