Google Extends Free Gmail Calls in the US and Canada to 2012

Google has extended free voice calls in Gmail in the US and Canada to one more year, the company has announced.

Voice calls were originally added to Gmail in August 2010, with Google promising they will be free in the US and Canada “for the rest of the year.”

However, at the end of 2010 Google has extended free calling in these two countries to 2011, and now it has done so again, promising free calls in the US and Canada throughout 2012.

Originally announced with much fanfare, the popularity of voice calling in Gmail obviously still hasn’t reached the point where Google could start charging for the service, at least domestically.

Internationally, voice calling in Gmail is still available at what Google calls “insanely low rates.”
