Phone Calls from Gmail/Google Voice : Tips

A few weeks back, Google started offering Google voice service directly from your gmail account. This enables to make calls from your gmail account, free calls to USA and Canada. Later Google Voice posted on its blog some calling tips which are very useful. Let me share it with you all.

If you have not yet setup Google Voice in your gmail, go to Google Voice, click on settings and check the box next to Google Chat in your list of forwarding phones. Now, you’ll be able to make and receive calls to your Google Voice number right in Gmail.

Tips about calls from Gmail:

1. Call Screening : You want to ignore a particular incoming call. Click the “Screen” button. The caller will be sent to your voicemail and you can listen in while they leave you a message. If you decide you want to take the call, just click “Join” at any time to pick up.

2. Switching calls between Gmail and other phones
Let’s say you picked up a call on your Gmail, but you need to head out the door. It’s a pain to hang up and call the person back from your cell, especially for those important calls. Hit the asterisk (*) on the Gmail dial pad at any time during the call and your other Google Voice forwarding phones will ring.

3. Recording incoming calls

4. Whenever you miss a call, you can see a notification in your Google Voice inbox, or receive an email notification, or both. This setting can be turned on and off from the Calls tab in the Settings menu.

Some of these tips are really helpful, specially forwarding the call to your number in between a call. If Google keeps on going like this in Voip, it is sure to capture the market very soon.

We all enjoy chatting with our friends and free voice calls to them is always very enjoyable. But what's interesting is video chat with your loved ones (and yes free). Actually what's more interesting and highly enjoying is video chatting with multiple people at same time. In more technical words, we are talking about video conferencing or group video calls.

Good news is that you can now use Skype to make group video calls with up to 10 people - letting you bring even more of your family, friends or business together, even if you’re cities or continents apart. Note that everyone in a group video call now needs to be running the updated version of Skype (so that everyone has capability of group video chat). So if your friends, family or colleagues are using Beta 1, they’ll have to upgrade before you can include them in group video calls.

Skype has also changed its user interface. It looks more sleeker, neater and crisper than before. Skype Home, has been added where you can follow your contacts' mood messages, set your profile picture and mood message, receive account notifications and learn more about using Skype.

I thought its FREE

You can try Skype for free for whole one month. This free month included unlimited calls plan, group video calls and even group screen sharing.
- To avail this free trial you need to purchase a plan (which you can cancel before your free month completes).

And if you love using these great Skype features you can keep them after the free trial for just €7.992 a month (that's more than 50% off the regular price).

No problem. Simply cancel any time within the first 27 days of your free trial. 

Making Group Video Calls

- You can make group video calls from your windows laptop/desktop : Check out this tutorial which I found on Skype website. Similar tutorial exists for Mac PC as well.
  • Only one group video call can take place on the same computer at the same time.
  • If you are signed in to Skype on more than one computer, you can participate in one group video call on each computer you are signed in to.
Please note that Group Video Calling is not available on mobile devices application (like android, iPhone) and Skype tablet applications. 

I would suggest you to hook up your laptop with your televison to enjoy video calling on TV. And couple this with group video calling as described in this post. Group Video Chat on television will be a totally different experience at home.
