GMail Users: Google Extend free US / Canada Calling in 2011

By Posted 21 Dec 2010, 11:51

We have some great news for those of you who regularly use the calling feature when logged into your Google Gmail account, as Google has made an announcement which should put a smile on your face.

As reported from BGR, those of you who use Gmail calling in the US and Canada are probably aware that the service is currently free to use, although originally Google had intended to charge a small fee to users.

However, that fee probably isn’t going to happen now, as Google has just stated that they’ll be extending their free Gmail call service for the whole of 2011, as long as you are in the US or Canada.

That really is great news for those of you who have become fans of the Gmail plugin. Just to point out, we’re not talking about Google Voice here, as that’s a completely separate service from Google. If you use the calling feature on Gmail regularly, let us know your thoughts on the announcement.

Further details can be seen at the Google Blog here. Let us know your opnions on the call quality as well – How highly do you rate it?
