Google Gmail call voip images pictures photosInternet giant Google has launched a new cheap online VOIP call service via its web mail Gmail, which turns out to strike over 1,000,000 calls in just 24 hours. As for me, I still prefer using Skype, actually.

The new calling service, which was made available to users in the U.S. on Wednesday, enables Gmail users to call each other for free from anywhere in the U.S. and Canada. Eventually, users will be able to make inexpensive calls to other countries around the world ranging from 2cents to $4.99 per minute. The VoIP service uses Gmail as an interface, and users can essentially call each other through their computers.

Users also have the option of integrating Google Voice, and can call both wireless or land line phones. The new Google service markets itself as an attractive alternative to making expensive long distance calls, registering for a Skype account or even taking the time to put a phone up to your ear.

To bolster its recent launch, Google will also be installing old fashioned phone booths in airports and universities around the U. S., where users can pick up a handset that looks like an old fashioned dilatory phone and make a free call to anywhere in the country or Canada, according to CNet.
