SEARCH giants Google are constantly looking for ways to make connecting with other people easier and now reaching the people you care about is even easier with Google Voice.
Google Voice is now live in 38 languages and you can make low rate calls to over 150 destinations right from inside your Gmail account.
Last year people in the America could already call mobiles and landlines from within Gmail and now it is also available to people all over Europe.
Calling credits can be brought in Euros, Pounds, Canadian Dollars and U.S. Dollars and as there are no connection fees you only pay for the time you talk and to help reduce the cost of staying connected Google have also lowered their calling rates to over 150 destinations around the world.
Calls to mobile phones in the U.K. Spain or Germany are only €0.08 per minute and landlines are only €0.02 per minute. To call a mobile in Mexico will only cost you €0.15 per minute and for €0.02 per minute you can call any phone in China or India.
Google will be rolling out this feature over the next few days so look out for a little green phone icon showing up on top of your chat list. (You will need to have the voice and video plug-in installed to use this service)
I have to wonder how Microsoft who recently acquired Skype feels about this latest move by Google.
Watch this space and I’ll keep you posted.
