Google Voice, a VoIP service which offers voice calling from mobile devices and from Gmail’s web interface, has announced that it will continue to offer free calls in the U.S. and Canada through 2011. Google Voice has been free for U.S. users since earlier this year, but Google had previously said that free calling would only be available through December 2010.
Now, however, Google is extending free calling “in the spirit of holiday giving,” according to a post on the Google Voice blog.
It seems that Google Voice is growing in popularity, despite having had several outages in recent months. There are presently no GV phone numbers available in my area, but it’s possible to select numbers in many locations.
Let us know what you think of Google Voice in the comments.
