If you’re a fan of making calls from Gmail, you’re in luck. Google has just announced that it has upgraded the service to support over 38 different languages, and has lowered the call rates to more than 150 destinations around the world. This makes calling from Gmail a lot more accessible to consumers worldwide, especially those outside of the US and those who don’t primarily use English.
The rates have also been cut quite drastically for example, you can make calls to a landline in France for $0.02/min, while it will only cost you $0.10/min to call a mobile phone in UK. Check out the full list of rates here. It looks like Google really is trying its best to keep the world connected at affordable prices. Calls to the U.S. or Canada placed within those countries will continue to be free at least for the rest of 2011. Calls to the U.S. or Canada placed from outside these countries will be charged $0.01 per minute. Watch the promo video:
