Google Announces the Extension of Free Gmail Voice Calls in the US and Canada for 2013

If you've been enjoying free Gmail voice calls to your Gmail contacts during 2012, you'll be glad to hear that Google has announced it plans to extend the service for the US and Canada throughout 2013. Gmail users can continue to get free voice calls using the Gmail chat widget.

The free voice call service has been around since 2010 and has been expected to end each year only to be extended by Google. The Gmail Voice calling service is based on Google Voice and offers free domestic calls. Google Voice is an interesting service that hasn't been updated in a long time.

Unpopular or not, it's good to see Google extend the free voice call service for another year. Google has been shutting down its unpopular and unprofitable services so it's rather surprising to see the free voice call service continue.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
