Google Gmail Free Call Service for US & Canada Users Extended Through End of 2011

December 20, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

In time for the holidays, Gmail users in the US and Canada have got a free gift from Google. The company has extended its free calling service for US and Canada-based Gmail users. If you would remember, the service was due for expiry this month. Now, with the free calling initiative extended through the end of 2011, Gmail users are in for some good times.

Google has said that the free calling service has been in the US and Canada. What users get to enjoy is that all calls made from within Gmail goes absolutely free.

Let us also tell you this is not to be confused with Google Voice, which also enables free calling to the US and Canada. Google’s free Gmail calls feature was unveiled in August and was offered free till the end of 2011.

The decision to extend the service through 2011 comes about to us as a perfectly-timed offer considering that the US is going into the holidays soon.

The voice calling feature which may be seen as a precursor to VoIP services to Google Voice is yet another innovation that Google has brought about with the user’s convenience in mind.

If you are in the US or Canada and are a Gmail user, we guess you might have already tried it. In case you haven’t, all you need to do is hit ‘Call phone’  at the top of your Gmail chat list and dial a number or key in a contact’s name. You can look for more here.
