Free Calls via Gmail in 2011
Just when year 2010 was coming to end, Google has decided to play Santa by extending free Google Voice calling via Gmail till end of 2011. Google Voice acts as voice mail transcription, free local calls, free local SMS, cheaper International Calls and single number for several other numbers - mobile, home, office. Free calling for US and Canada citizens via Google Voice was destined to end by this year's last day. Back in June, Google opened up Google Voice for all US and Canada based citizens.
After Apple approved Google Voice App for iPhone, Google released the same for iPad and iPod touch as well. Still Google Voice continued to be available only to consumers in US and Canada. Active effort has been put in to make use of Google Voice wherever possible and recently we saw its integration into Gmail. Post this, a new Call Phone option appears in the Gmail interface based Chat list. Of course, consumers in US and Canada need to have a Google Voice account to reap such benefits.
Recently, Google had enabled Google Voice function in Gmail for Indians for a very short time. However, we see no official whistles of Voice feature for India. Google, apart from extending free calling for millions of US nations, do try to bring Voice in several other countries. Or else it would be like reaping benefits off Apple's products shamelessly since US nationals love the iPad and iPhone almost equally. Don't play 'Bad Santa'.
