Google向Linux Gmail 提供电话服务
Five days after the announcement of Voice and Video Chat service in Gmail for Debian-based Linux distributions, Google unveiled a Gmail phone call service for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
基于Debian的Linux发行下的Gmail中增添了音视频服务的消息发布五天之后，Google公开了对Windows， Mac， 和 Linux提供的电话服务。
Rather than having both parties tied to their computers and logged into their Gmail accounts, one user can now call anyone in the US and Canada with telephone service. Google states that rates will remain free for the rest of the year and very low for international calls.
Google continues by saying that dialing from Gmail is just like using your phone. Just click "Call phone" in your chat list and dial the number on the number pad that appears. One could even use a contact name if there is a phone number associated with it. The browser plug-in has been tested extensively internally by Google and found to be quite useful. While Google Voice isn't required, it will provide certain benefits such as Caller ID and the ability to receive phone calls from inside Gmail.
Google表示，从Gmail拔号和使用你的电话一样。只需在联系人列表点击“打电话”，在出现的拔号面板拔号就行了。如果已将联系人名和号 码绑定，还可以直接输入联系人名。浏览器插件已经在Google内部被广泛测试过，非常好用。尽管Google Voice并不必需，有了它仍能有一些好处，如联系人ID和从Gmail内部接电话的用途。
