Google Adds Click-to-Call to Google Maps



Google announced the addition of click to call technology to its Google Maps product.

Here’s how it works: Search for a business, like a hardware store, on Google Maps, and click the ‘call’ link next to its phone number. Then, enter your phone number and click ‘Connect For free.’ Google calls your phone number and automatically connects you to the hardware store.

Google picks up the tab for calling costs (except mobile fees) and businesses don’t pay either. More details here.

    I love the implementation. I type in my #, the system calls me, and auto connects me to the business. I just tried it and it worked great.

    I understand that Google is using VoIP, Inc.’s technology for its click to call services. Check out this cool company, http://www.voipinc.com.

    VoIP, Inc. also recently handled the click to call promotional campaign for “America’s Next Top Model” that allowed fans to send and receive personalized phone messages from Trya Banks, the show’s star. And, it was VoIP, Inc.’s technology that was used for the successful “Snakes on a Plane” phone campaign that featured the voice of Samuel L. Jackson.

    Also, in October, VoIP, Inc. began powering what could be the largest Click to Call promotional campaigns ever developed, for the NFL Network.

    VoIP, Inc. rocks!
