Google Ensures Free Phone Calls Through 2013

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – The new year means good news for Googlers. On Wednesday, the search giant revealed that it would extend free calling domestically.

“Many of you call phones from Gmail to easily connect with friends and family. If you’re in the US and Canada, you’ll continue to be able to make free domestic calls through 2013,” stated the company via its blog post.

The phone call capability has been a popular feature of Gmail for quite some time, initially added in 2010. Late last year, the company revamped the popular email service to feature a new look.
