Saving Telephone Costs with Gmail
I have been an avid user of Google Voice for several months. I have encouraged my family, friends, and many of my key clients to use my Google Voice number as the best way to reach me anytime, anywhere. My experiences with the Google Voice system have been excellent. Yesterday, Google added a new feature in Gmail which greatly expands the utility of Google Voice and provides even more opportunities for anyone to save money on phone usage.
The cost savings gets even better if you are a Google Voice user. You can now select your computer as a destination for incoming calls. This means that if you are in an area where cell coverage is poor or if you just don’t want to use a cell phone, you can send and receive calls using an Internet connected computer. When a call arrives, your computer will ring and a screen pop-up will appear. Everything is free. Ditch that land line once and for all.
I encourage you to read this list from Lifehacker of eight clever ways you can use free calling from Gmail.
