Google has continued to evolve its Gmail web mail service which now includes a fully featured instant messaging service from the user’s inbox. CNET has reported that Google may be taking the next step in revolutionizing their Gmail, as “Google is testing a Web-based service within Gmail that will allow users to place phone calls from their in-boxes.” The new reported VoIP service will act more or less like the inbox version of Skype: letting users make VoIP calls to not only other Gmail or Google Talk contacts, but also to landlines and cellular phones around the globe.

Google has finally announced the Google Voice calling for Gmail with which you can call friends directly from your computer. Gizmodo has tested the service and reported about the quality of calls made using Gmail Voice Calling services. Pricing plans have also been introduced for making calls to other countries. Users can call some countries starting at 2c/minute and calling to numbers in US and Canada will be free for time being. The lists of countries are as follows:

Google also revealed that they will set up booths which will use Google Voice services in university campuses, airports and suitable places. Anyways here is the video showing Google Voice in Gmail.
