    How to make calls from Gmail to Mobile Phone

    My friend recently told me that I can make calls from Gmail to mobile phone of my contacts. Is this true? If yes, please tell me the procedure as it would be much useful for calling my friends and in-laws who are staying abroad. Currently I am using the Skype but I am curious to use gmail.

    If you want to make calls from Gmail, the first thing you need to is to install the voice and video plug-in for Gmail. And after that you can call to a landline or cellphone from your contacts by following the below steps:

    1. Open your chat list that you use normally while chatting
    2. Then click on icon of call phone which would be in green color at top of your Chat list.
    3. Then a new window will open in which you will have to dial the desired number using your num keys on keyboard.
    4. Once you type the number with appropriate code, click on call button.

    Once you follow these steps you will be able to make calls to your contacts.

    Why are you keen to use Gmail for calling? I would recommend you to stick to Skype as it is free while in Gmail you will have to put the credits while calling. Even after that if you want to use Gmail, you can add credit by following steps:

    • In the "Chat", click Call phone.
    • On the right of the Call window which appears, click your balance.
    • Then click Add balance.
    • In the window that appears, click the button “Add Credit”
    • Your amount will be credited and then checkout balance.

    This service goes beyond chat to Gmail, which already allowed the audio and video chats between computers.

    Yes, it is now possible to call a telephone number from gmail account. These calls will remain free in Canada and the United States at least until the end of the year. Users can also make calls to UK, France, Germany, India, China and Japan for only 2 cents per minute.

    To make calls, you can use the microphone and speakers built into your computer or an external headset, whichever you can use comfortably. With this new service, I think that Google will compete directly with Skype, which is already calling telephone numbers from a computer for a free.

    We can also hope that in future Gmail too will provide the phone calls free.
