Google rolled out a new feature in Gmail in August 2010 that allowed users to call phones from within the Gmail interface for FREE in the United States and Canada until 2010. Now Google has been bit by the Christmas spirit and is now offering this feature to call phones from within Gmail for FREE all the way through 2011.
To use this feature you simply have to log into your Gmail account and you will see the Call Phone in your chats list and it will pop up the number pad where you can call the number just like on a phone. Learn more about calling phones in Gmail.
