Call your pals and talk to them for free!!
It seems that communication is getting accessible to each and every person with the introduction of new technologies in the field of electronics and telecommunications, voice calls being no different. Not only this, the cost of voice calls is also getting cheaper with time. Gone are the days when only financially well people used to call their secluded relatives and used to be in touch with family and friends staying far away. Now almost all of us have mobile phones or landlines to talk to anyone at any point of time.
But what if you want to call your pals and talk to them for free?
Well, Google has come up with something that will certainly bring smile to your face. Google has announced that the company is going to extend the time period for free voice calls (made from Gmail) within U.S. and Canada. Voice calling, as a feature, was added to Gmail in August 2010. That time, Google announced that this feature will be available for free throughout the year in U.S. and Canada. In other countries also, the voice calling feature was made available for free for some time.
At the end of 2010, Google again announced that the voice calling through Gmail will be free in U.S. and Canada for the whole of 2011 as well. But it seems that the recognition it expected for this feature has still not been achieved. Probably that is why Google has not yet started charging for the voice calling feature of Gmail in these two countries and now it has been announced once again by the company that this feature will remain free in the upcoming year 2012 as well.
There is no doubt that Google Chrome is very popular among users, but with Google charging for its voice calling feature through Gmail internationally at “insanely low rates, there arises a question as to what could be the reason behind its unpopularity in U.S. and Canada. Are there still some technical faults in this feature?
Google! Are you listening!!
