I’m sure many of you are already using Google Voice for your desktop. If you’re not, simply put — it lets users make and receive calls via their Gmail interface.
Well, hold the phones! (all pun intended)…this week Google Voice is being integrated right into the browser via Gmail! And lemme tell ya, the quality is really impressive (certainly comparable to Skype if not better).
All you have to do, is download the Google Talk plugin for your browser and you’ll be able to make calls to any U.S. or Canadian phone number, directly from Gmail! (you can also use it internationally for a super low per minute charge)
I can’t tell you how beneficial I’ve seen this tool be for friends and associates that have issues like weird cell reception and the like. Most importantly though…it’s FREE!!
Check out the video above for more information about how to use this great tool.
Have a great weekend everyone!
All the best,

Google is constantly stepping it up. I’ve used Google Voice for 6 months now as part of my business line and it is phenomenal! This integration into Gmail just tops things off 🙂
I’m hoping they will add fax to that pretty soon. That would great. Although, I can’t understand why businesses won’t just switch to e-mail attachments. The quality would be so much better and it would be free!
The prices to other countries are quite amazing..Thanks for sharing Jay!
