Gmail Users Welcome Google Voice

By Don Reisinger  |  Posted 09-04-2010 Print

Dell ditches 3PAR, iPad gets an update and Google's Chrome has a makeover. Five fast takes on the week's hottest developments.

Google announced that 10 million calls have been placed on the company's Gmail VoIP offering in its first week of availability. The service allows users to place free calls in both the U.S. and Canada. International calls require payment, based on location.

The CIO Insight

As the recession continues to impact companies around the globe, you're probably looking for a cheap communication platform. And although Skype is just fine, Gmail's VoIP service is worth a look. It works quite well, and as long as you're operating in the U.S. and Canada, you won't need to pay anything for employees to communicate with others. Keep in mind that it is still a Web-based VoIP solution, so it won't match the quality of your current installed lines, but it's a cheap alternative worth testing out especially for traveling or remote workers.
