Free Calls to USA and Canada from Gmail Account

You are from USA and you are having a Gmail and a google voice account ? How about making Phone calls directly from your Gmail account without having to login somewhere else. How about if all these phone calls are free.

Yes that is what Google has to offer to you now. Basically now you can access Google voice account from your gmail account, its the integration of Google Voice + Gmail. Using this new Gmail feature you will be able to make free phone calls to USA and Canada.

You need to install a Google voice and video chat plugin to your Gmail account. After you have installed this plugin and restarted the browser, you will see an additional option "Call Option" in the chat window. To make a call, just click the Call phone link in Gmail and enter any number or name from your address book.

You can also receive phone calls in your gmail account now using this same feature. The calls made from Gmail will display your Google Voice phone number as the outbound caller ID. You can also make international phone calls using Gmail, the call rates will be same as that of Google voice service. So basically its just Google voice service which you can now directly access from gmail.

One thing which needs to be mentioned is that this feature is available only to people in USA. I am not sure how are they tracking it, it may be the IP address (will proxies work) or some say its the language set (English US). Keep trying and let us know whatever works for you.

Seems that Google is now all set to give a great competition to Skype, Yahoo voice, Vonage. Lets see how many are able to use this service and find this useful.

SokenRecall : Free Calls : Record and Transcribe your calls

Well just surfing around the internet, I came across this cool service named SpokenRecall. I have not got much time to try the service out and have a detailed report about this new service. Just though to share a few things first which looked interesting so that you guys yourself try it out and let us know your feedback.

You can now record your phone calls and transcribe them ! Spokenrecall is such a similar service with:
Free Sign Up
Record your calls
Transcribe your recordings
No long distance charges
Get your own personal numbers all over the world

All th features looks good with the ability to transcribe your recordings. One more thing which looked good was that "No long distance charges". Does this mean that you can make Free Voip Phone calls using this service as a access number. (I still have to figure this out).

On thier FAQ page, I found this written.

What are the services offered?

People calling you can do so from places all over the world with no long distance charges. Just about anyone can call you from locations all over the world without having to pay any long distance charges. They only pay the local call rate when calling while still enjoying all the features of the Spoken Recall service. All that they need to do is call one of our local access numbers and enter your phone number and we will handle the long distance. So if you are in the United States and your friends want to talk to you from another country, such as Italy, all they do is call the Italy access number and enter your number. You will still have the ability to use all the great Spoken Recall features during the call, the same as if you had called them. If you have acquired a personal Spoken Recall number they can call you directly without having to enter your phone number. So you can have a number in several cities throughout the world and they will all connect to whatever phones you have chosen. Only local charges will apply for the call.

I would suggest you guys to try SpokenRecall service out as this does not require any payments. Please let us know the results.


Free Calls to your Facebook friends by Vonage

Two days back, Vonage announced some good news to all Vonage users (I am assuming most of you must be having a facebook account).

It is obviously much cheaper to post a message on your Facebook wall instead of making call or texting your facebook friend. But how about if you are able to make calls to your Facebook friends for free !! thanks to a new Facebook application from voice-over internet-protocol [VoIP] software provider Vonage.

As long as you are connected to world via WiFi, 3G/4G you can make free calls using Vonage facebook application which install on your phone. Any version of the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, or on any smartphone running Google Inc.’s Android operating system. It is available on the Apple app store and the Android market as a free download.

After you start the application you will be asked to enter facebook login information. You will now be able to make call to your Facebook friend for free. These calls are placed using your phone internet connection (the power of Voip). The only catch to make free calls is that your friend also need to have this Vonage application installed.

Skype reduces call rates to India : India Calling Plans

If you are still stuck with your old telecom provider for your international calls then you are losing a lot of money. It is high time you make a switch to voip (or calling cards) for your international calls and messages and start saving on your phone bills. Skype is probably the thing you should start your voip use. And if you regularly make international calls to India, then we have some good news for you. Skype has again reduced its calling rates to India offering a cheaper voip plan.

The news is official with a post on Skype voip blog and the rates are also updated on Skype website. This means that the rates are effective immediately.  Using Skype you can now make up to 400 minutes of calls to landlines and mobiles in India for just $8.99/£5.79/€6,69* per month – an effective rate of only 2.2¢/1.4p/1,7c† ($US/£/€) per minute.

It doesn't mean that you have to buy minimum 400 minute plan, if you check Skype website then the price for 60 minutes to India are mentioned as €1,39 with effective calling rate same as for other plans. You can choose the plan depending on your per month usage.

Skype mentions on its blog
"You can chat away without the worry, and there are no long-term contracts either. You can make calls from your computer, mobile phone or even from your TV at our great low rates – a monthly subscription is the cheapest way to call phones with Skype.
Plus, if you sign up for 12 months, you’ll get an extra 120 minutes per month free, bringing the total monthly allowance to 520 minutes – an even better deal."
