Making Calls From Gmail

If you’ve somehow managed to miss this one in the news then you must be hiding in one deep dark hole. 😛

Here are some pictures for your entertainment. If you’d like to use this, you need to install the Google Voice plugin first and then restart you web browser.

Keep in mind that you need the plugin to do this (and obviously a microphone) and that you’ll be calling friends or family using a number provided to you by Google Voice (so they may not recognize it at first).

The best thing going for Google’s new calling feature (if you ask me) is that its completely free for me to call any phone in the USA. While this pricing may not be permanent, it should at least last through the course of this year (my source for that is linked somewhere up above 😛 ).

    Hmmm. So they give you a new number that shows up on the other end on called I.D., but the other end can’t call you back on that number. That is potentially a HUGE problem for me.

    Do I have that right? Or is there a way they can call you back using that numbers? And, if there is, can you “call forward” that number to your cell, for example, or to your land line?
