  1. @beauhefley I meant free assuming someone has internet access. I use Google Voice and make most calls through that service on my Android phone. I pay a data plan to the wireless co, true, but I don't need to waste my wireless plan's minutes to make calls.

  2. @carstorm85 I just meant that those within the US can already make internet calls to US numbers for free via Gmail. There's no need for someone to go through all the stuff @fayaz469 describes if they live in the US and want to call within the US. Rates to call outside the US are very reasonable.

  3. I called someone and they said the number (the Gmail) was in a different area code. Would the recipient have to pay extra for this?

  4. hey…im from the philippines..so if ill call someone in US i will pay?or the recipient will?or technically this free call is for US to US call only?

  5. I got a question… if you call a cellphone number in canada with gmail voice, will the person be charged for the incoming call?

  6. I got a question… if you call a cellphone number in canada with gmail voice, will the person be charged for the incoming call? i love google <3

  7. What are the headphones they are using to talk. I would like to use gmail to call people but I don't have one of those. What port would it plug into my computer?

  8. I just discovered a neat trick:

    I activated Google voicemail on my regular cell phone. If I want to answer a regular call from the comfort of my computer, I reject/miss the incoming call, and then see my Gmail saying "incoming call" to pick up the phone call from the inbox.

    I'm guessing it's because the voicemail number is your regular Google Voice number — so a rejected or missed called gets "forwarded" to your Gmail phone when you have your inbox open. Neat trick for low signal areas!

  9. and they are taking the call phone option out for people except in canada and the US.. that feels like giving a chocolate and then snatching it out of my hand..

  10. Free means free. I don't care if it's 2 cents or 10 cents, that's not free. Free means no fucking money! Costing money means I have to go through this long process of getting my credit card out and filling out a bunch of information just to use this. Sorry. This is not free.

  11. Fuck you google. You popped up advertisements all over my gmail talking about this awesome new feature, telling me I can call people for free, then you made me agree to a bunch of crap, install your stupid software, **ONLY THEN** DO YOU TELL ME IT'S NOT AVAILABLE IN MY COUNTRY!!!

  12. Wrong Diaz! Mexico is not in any American back-yard! Just the few scum bags

    that swam the river with their drugs and hands out for free benefits

  13. Okay, A: the description isn't visible in the ad that kept appearing in my gmail 4 months ago, and B: I live in Canada, where, according to the description it should be available. Maybe they've made it available in Canada since in the time since I posted that. I'm not sure

    It's just funny, Google knows what country I live in, my hobbies and interests, my browsing habits, my favorite brands, etc. It was promoting a service it knew wasn't available in Canada, and made me install before telling me

  14. The service is a boon to someone, I'm sure, but the Google marketing people need to go back to school. Ads like this are the reason I don't have a television.

  15. GOOGLE TALK SUCKS!!!! FEE , YEA RIGHT,, NEVER CAN GET THROUGH TO EVEN MAKE A SO CALLED FREE CALL!!!!!!! EVERY TIME I TRY TO MAKE A CALL I ALLWAYS,,, ALLWAYS GET A BUSY SIGNAL,,,, BEEP,, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP,BEEP,, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP ,BEEP,, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP ,BEEP,, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP ,BEEP,, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP ,BEEP,, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP ,BEEP,, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP ,BEEP,, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP ,BEEP,, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP

  16. I have not ever used this New Google, I used to get Email alerts on my phone & on , and my inbox..now it won't update…and I am lost….SOS!!!!

  17. New Google would be a good experience for me to practice up on my gmail. Can't wait to get started.Love to keep my information safe and be able to go back on websites without any problems. can't seem to keep signing in with my verification codes for each website. I get blocked and there are no more numbers to contact Google or certain websites like Twitter. Do I need a software or app on my cell phone to catch my code for website?

  18. Shame it's about as stable as a one wheeled SUV on any internet browser and about as functional as a saw-blade made out of candy-floss.

  19. did they know we where not cave men in 1000 bc it should of said year 3000 and guy inventing the first phone, who ever made this doesn't know history.

  20. I have used this feature the past five years but several days ago it just stopped working with nary a word from Google as to WHY.
