You can now make international calls via your Gmail for cheaper than using regular telephones. Google is allowing free unlimited calls to the US and Canada till the end of the year 2010. The call quality was absolutely clear on both the side. There were no disconnections during long calls.
After free period is over, calls to other countries can be made after purchasing pre-paid credits on their Google Voice website. It will be a good bargain for people in India to use this service to make calls to the US or Canada after the free period is over. India to any other country is charged at 6 cents (Rs. 2.7) per minute.
In your Gmail, see if you’ve got that “Call Phone” option right underneath your status change drop-down menu. This option is available free till the end of the year 2010. so, make US/Canada phone-calls free from Gmail.
