Google Extends Free North American Gmail Calls Through 2012 [News]

gmail logo   Google Extends Free North American Gmail Calls Through 2012 [News]Gmail users in the US and Canada who have been enjoying Google’s free calls deal over the last year will be pleased to know the offer has been extended into 2012. A post on the Official Gmail Blog confirmed that North American Gmail users can continue to call landline and mobile numbers for free, for the next 12 months.

In the spirit of the festive season, Google’s Group Product Manager Vincent Paquet wrote:

“As the holiday season approaches, we’re happy to announce that we’ve extended free domestic calls within the US and Canada for 2012. This is our way of helping you connect with friends and family across the country.”

With Microsoft’s acquisition of Skype not so long ago, Google is surely trying to hold on to its VoIP userbase before Microsoft begins to further integrate Skype into existing and new products.

Callers from outside the US are still able to dial North American numbers for a low rate of 1 cent per minute, and Google’s full list of international calling rates can be found here.
