Google's Gmail PC-to-Phone Call Service

The Google Voice project has gone a long way from just simple voice call recording. Skype geeks must be trembling already because the Gmail Voice Call feature, Gmail’s PC-to-Phone calling, is doing well. Google’s Gmail new feature that lets you do voice calls to landline and mobile numbers right from your e-mail account is pure genius. No need to download and install a separate application like you do with Skype and other VOIP services. Gmail is not yet as popular as Hotmail or Yahoo Mail but with the introduction of this PC-to-Phone calling feature, it might just double its subscribers within the year.Skype should feel very threatened, while it enjoys more than 500 millions users now.

The new PC-to-phone feature is integrated into the chat list on the Gmail page. Making a call is actually very similar to starting a regular chat or video sessions. Once a user has clicked on the “Call phone” button on the top of the friends list, a telephone key pad appears—after that, a user can dial the number (by clicking on the numbers with a mouse, copying or typing a phone number) and start a conversation.

And what about the prices? Calls to the USA and Canada will be free, and to make a call to some other country, users are asked to pay strikingly little money—for instance, a voice conversation with a friend in Australia, France, Germany or the UK and more will cost only $0.02 per minute (the full list of rates can be found here).
