In less than twenty-four hours, the new Gmail Calling service has helped connect people more than a million times. The new feature is handsome if you’re contacting someone in Canada or the United States since those calls are totally free. Google is subsidizing those calls through its international rates… which are as low as two cents per minute.
It’s not surprising to most of us that this has spread as quickly as it has. There are millions upon millions of Gmail users all over the world. A large percentage of those people already use the video chat feature. It stands to reason that they’d be checking out a new calling service the second they read the word “FREE.”
