Call Phones from Gmail (How To)

Google on Wednesday announced that starting August 25th (26th in the Philippines), United States residents can make calls anywhere in the country and to Canada free of charge for "at least the rest of the year". How? Guess what, the free calls from PC to any phone in those countries can be made with Gmail!

Yes, Gmail - Google's email service.

The search giant also revealed that "calls to other countries will be billed at very low rates." Calls to the U.K., France, Germany, China, Japan and many more countries, according to Google, will be charged "for as little as $0.02 per minute."
