Share |It is official that a web based service within Gmail will allow people to place phone calls from their inboxes. It is a combination of Gmail and Google voice that lets you dial numbers from your computer as well as receive calls through your Google voice number. How does it work? According to PC World, "Gmail users will see a "call phone" button at the left of the Gmail inbox. Hitting this button brings a dial-pad allowing you to initiate a call from your Gmail account to a landline or mobile phone number. The dial-pad also contains your recent call history under a tab above the browsers." Calls made in the U.S. and Canada will be completely free with discounts given for international calls. The new Gmail/Google voice is great because it doesn't rely on cellular networks so you never have to worry about having poor cell service in your home and it is now the cheapest way to make phone calls in the U.S.
What do you think of this new development from Google? Will it make communication easier and more efficient?
