CJT-80 wrote:I am surprised Google haven't released this over here yet.... perhaps it's down to the market or the availability of numbers to use?I find that pretty interesting too. I would have thought that with Google being such a huge company, they would have released it in the UK by now. Usually things seem to always be released in the US, Canada, and the UK. It's when you get into other countries that things start to become unavailable - or at least that was the impression I always had.
Seems an interesting service though

Do you know what the differences between the two are? I'm assuming the Lite is free, but what features are you missing out on if you go with the free version?
Users outside of the US can use Call Phone in Gmail to make international calls at affordable rates.

At the same time i am sure that all your contacts should have Skype regardless. It is one of those things you have just in case you ever need it.I'm aware of the capability to use Skype in that way but I've never actually done it. Can you explain more of how it works? I remember reading somewhere that they give you something free (I can't remember if it was credits for the calls or actual minutes) the first time you use it but I'm not sure if they're still doing that. Also, how do you go about setting something like that up? And as for business related things - such as if you were working for a company as a customer service rep or something like that - would that be a suitable option or no?

I have friend over in the USA who say it really is brilliant and I was wondering if google even have any plans to introduce it over here in the UK?I hate it when this happens. They launch good stuff in the USA and us Brits never get to see it.
Up to now, I haven't even heard any talk about it being available so I'm guessing its going to be a long way off yet if we ever do get it.
Hi Bill, I can definitely advise and help set this up …
