CNET has learned something interesting happening to Gmail, it seems that Google has been testing Gmail Call, where you can have the ability to call any phone, both in the US and Canada, for free. Google already lets you do this with Google Voice, however that requires you have a cell phone, as it calls your phone and then the person your calling. With this, you can just place the call and use the Mic and Speakers on your laptop or desktop and talk to someone.
While it will be free to call anyone in the US and Canada, you have to pay for International calls, with really good, competitive rates. Obviously, this is centered at competing with Skype. Skype has seen some mainstream success, especially with all Verizon phones as they now come pre-installed.
Google has been in a multifront war recently, and while they haven’t been first to a particular product recently, they have shown that being first isn’t always better. All of the products Google has released have proven to be just as good, if not better as the products they are up against. With Gmail Call, this now makes Gmail a center for communications. You have access to Gmail Chat/AIM, your Email and now your phones.
Wanna be able to use Gmail Call? Then your gonna need to get the installer, go to Gmail Call download it (It’s free). The installer works on all Windows Machines and Mac Computers. Running the installer is required to use Gmail Call because it lets you use your computer/laptops mic and speakers.
