Gmail Adds Phone Call Capabilities


Gmail voice and video chat makes it easy to stay in touch with friends and family using your computer’s microphone and speakers. But until now, this required both people to be at their computers, signed into Gmail at the same time. Given that most of us don’t spend all day in front of our computers, we thought, “wouldn’t it be nice if you could call people directly on their phones?”

Starting today, you can call any phone right from Gmail.

      I haven't tried it out because I don't have a microphone on my laptop, but I think this makes me more inclined to try out Google Voice. I don't know. What more specifically has been your experience with this?
