Gmail Calling is back, this time it is improved


Calling from Gmail is back and this time it is integrated in Hangouts. So those of you who use Hangouts on desktops, smartphones, tablets and even Chrome can make call using directly from Gmail. It is worth noting that US and Canada users can make free calls and the other countries can even make calls at too low  rates. You can have a look at the rates here.



Interface is improved with a little more features such as you can add multiple phone numbers and video participants to the same call; and you can play sound effects (like applause or laughter) with the Google Effects app. To make a call click the phone icon in Gmail or you can also click "Call a phone" menu item in Google+ and the Chrome extension. 

This update to Hanouts will rollout soon.
