Google extends free voice calls via Google Voice through 2012
Bringing a lot of joy to many people all around the world, Google announced wonderful news that will put a smile on all of those Google Voice users out there.

You probably have a Google Voice number already, or maybe two, or possibly three, but whatever you have, there’s no kidding that it has a lot of usefulness in our daily lives. Although we don’t think about it all that much, you have to admit that the free nature of the service is undoubtedly what makes it one-of-a-kind. However, we can’t forget that the free times aren't going to last forever.

Well, that’s why the Mountain View based company announced that they’re extending free domestic phone calls within the US and Canada for the entire 2012 calendar year. You heard that right people, you can still place Google Voice calls through the Gmail portal online for free – and you don’t have to worry about paying for the service!

You can’t beat that, right?

Does this count toward calls made through the Android app?

No, because the app uses your cellphone minutes. It's not VoIP. When you make a call inf Gmail on a desktop, however, it's using whatever data connection you have.

*"aren't" going to last forever I presume.

Service should be rolled out to Europe by now! If you look at the sales from Android cellphones, Europeans contribute to Google's profit big time. Well, at least we've got the Galaxy Nexus first :)

I was just contacted that since I installed the Google Voice App, I have gone OVER my 450 minutes in LESS than 2 WEEKS!Q Normal month of used minutes....TWENTY. Now I'm trying to figure out how to get back to old VM. You can UN-install Google but that won't work so I've read AND experienced in the last 3 hours! I sure wish I could get some HELP!!!! :(
