Gmail May Offer Free VoIP Calling with  Google Voice

Google’s been really quiet with its future plans for its Google Voice service, which remains invite-only at the moment, but it looks like full internet telephone calling through Gmail is in the cards. The super-dedicated Google Operating System blog gets an anonymous tip and screenshot showing a Gmail chat window with all the tools you’d need to call over Google Voice included: dialpad, contact picker, credit tally, and call button. The TechCrunch and Download Squad blogs had Google sources telling them in April that a Google Voice desktop client was under internal testing, so it’s not too far-fetched to believe Google would also slide voice calling into Gmail. At the moment, Google Voice can still make free VoIP calls with Gizmo5, but accounts for that Google-purchased service have been suspended. [Google Operating System]
