Call from Gmail now in 38 Languages with cheaper call rates

Gmail calling

Last year, Google introduced call any mobile phone or landline directly from Gmail in U.S. and now Google made this available to many more Gmail user outside the U.S. by offering calling in 38 new languages and users can buy calling credit in their choice of four currencies (Euros, British  pounds, Canadian dollars or U.S. dollars) with no connection fees.

Google also lowered the calling rates to over 150 destinations around the world. For example, it’s now only $0.10 (or €0.08) per minute to call mobile phones in the U.K., France or Germany (landlines are $0.02/min), $0.15/minute to call mobile phones in Mexico and $0.02/min to call any phone number in China and India. The complete list is available here.

Google will be rolling out this feature over the next few days, and when it becomes available users will see a little green phone icon show up at the top of their chat list (those looking to make calls will need to install the voice and video plug-in if they haven’t already). If you're a Google Apps user, your domain administrator must have Google Voice and Google Checkout enabled in the administrator control panel in order to be able to use this feature.

Calls to the U.S. or Canada placed within those countries will continue to be free at least for the rest of 2011. Calls to the U.S. or Canada placed from outside these countries will be charged $0.01 per minute (or €0.01, £0.01, C$0.01 per minute).

Skype! you’re not alone, Google is on its way..
