Something good is happening in India where the Indian citizen can now use Hangouts and call their friends and family who are staying in Canada or the United States for free!
Google’s team from India has released a statement saying that voice calling through Hangouts are now free and will start immediately for all users in India. This is easier for the Indian citizen who can now enjoy the new calling freedom. Beside’s that, the team from Google India also wants to remind the users that if they spend a bit of credit from their account, they can still use it to make calls around the world on an outstanding rate. And users get the first minute of their calls for free!
This is how Hangout works for users in India; users with Hangouts can call to any Hangouts users around the world for free including Canada and the United States. However, an immense rate apply for calls elsewhere. Surprisingly, this free calls do not go both ways. Friends and family in North America will have to pay a few cents to call any users in India. Users can open the call from the Hangouts app in Gmail on their computers or install the Hangouts Dialer on their Android devices.
It’s amazing that Google fused Google Voice and Hangouts into one service. This is more than Google Voice could ever offer which brings voice calling, SMS and recently MMS support.
Users in India can head over to Play Store and download Hangouts Dialer to start calling for free and let us know how the service is working.
