The title pretty much says it all. Google has been giving free phone service (albeit a bit choppy at times but hey it’s free!) for a while now. This generous offer was set to expire at the end of 2011 but apparently not enough folks are getting it quite yet so Google is now offering it through 2012.

From the Gmail blog

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. And you can still call the rest of the world from Gmail at our insanely low rates.

Now, you don’t think that this has anything to do with Google’s attempt to have us all ultimately do everything through, or at least connected to, Google+? Nah. They wouldn’t do that now would they?!

C’mon man!

    I didn’t realize it was going to expire. I use it all the time, since I’m already online, it’s just as easy to dial a number from Google then go find a phone. It’s kind of replaced Skype for a lot of my outbound calls.

  • Thanks for sharing, i gained hope again and will continue enjoying free calling. Cheers!
