Call Phone from Your Gmail

Google is easing our lives, this time by embedding a phone dialer in your Gmail. Earlier it was told that phone feature is only for people in US and Canada, however, phone dialer is appearing in all countries for now.

Google said that calls to the U.S. and Canada will be free for at least the rest of the year and calls to other countries will be billed at very nominal rates.

Kick going by simply installing the voice and video plug-in and you are done!

P.S. Calls made to US from Pakistan are not getting through, at the moment at least.

Note: Using VoIP in Pakistan without license is not entirely legal.
