Gmail’s Call Phone

Written on August 26, 2010 by Japhet Writ

From phone calls to video chats, connecting to your loved ones is definitely innovating. Now with Gmail's new feature, you can call a friend or a family wherever they are! Thanks to Call Phone from Gmail.

Gmail voice and video chats makes it convenient to keep in touch with family and friends using your computer’s microphone and speaker. However, it’s not all the time that we are in front of our PC and signed in to Gmail. Good thing, Google though of an idea: “Wouldn’t it be nice if you could call people directly on their phones?” Starting today, you can now call just any phone right from your Gmail! According to Gmail’s blog, calls to the US and Canada will be free of charge for the rest of 2010, and calls to other countries will cost for as little as $ 0.02 per minute.

How does it work? It’s easy! It’s like calling a normal phone. At the top of your Chat List, click “Call Phone,” then dial a number or enter a contact’s name. This feature from Gmail is very useful, especially when you want to place a call when you’re in an area with bad reception. In the next few days, Gmail will be rolling out the new feature to US-based users, and they are working on to make it available to other customers. So don’t forget to check back again for more update.

What can you say about Gmail’s new features? Are you seeing yourself using it one of these days? Tell us by leaving a comment.

Google Introduces Apps Search

Written on August 19, 2010 by Japhet Writ

Ever wanted to search not only your e-mail, but your presentations, spreadsheets and documents? Not to worry, because Google is working on a project that will do just that.

Google is working on an experimental project to help users search not just their e-mail, but also their presentations, spreadsheets and documents. Google Apps Search is the newest feature from Google Labs, allowing users to extend their search to Google Docs and site results. The “Search Mail” button will turn to a “Search Mail and Docs” when you activate it. So whenever you perform a search through Gmail, it will display the 20 most recent e-mails with that query plus 20 related Google Docs or Sites. In addition to the universal search functionality, the feature also includes a “Did You Mean?” search suggestions. It functions the same way the Google Search does. Gmail is quickly becoming a destination for performing all of your searches, now that “Search the Web” is located directly to the right of “Search Mail and Docs.” If you already activated the new feature on your account, tell us what you think by leaving a comment.

Schedule Your Gmails with Boomerang

Written on August 17, 2010 by Japhet Writ

Boomerang is a Chrome and Firefox Extension that helps you schedule the emails you send and receive for a later time. It's currently in private beta and still working on some bugs. But it sounds promising, isn't it?

If you are having a hard time acting on all the email that gets in your inbox, then Boomerang is for you! Boomerang will let you schedule your emails whenever you want them to reappear. What’s best is that it even works for sent times, so you can postpone delivery of a happy birthday email for a friend, in case you remembered to send it a few days earlier.

Just place a Boomerang drop-down menu in your Gmail message bar, and viola! You can now start choosing your message schedule in a specific time. However, options like in an hour, tomorrow and next week are also available. There’s no need to enter a time stamp or an exact date if you’re not a fan of it. Instead, you can input things like “next Wednesday” or “Today at 5:00 pm.” Just a reminder, Boomerang only shows up when viewing or composing a single message. As of the moment, you can’t schedule multiple messages at once. And since it is still in a private beta, expect some bugs. If you’re using Chrome, the Boomerang button might not show up in message view. Don’t panic! Just reload the page.

Google Lets You Open Multiple Accounts in One Browser

Written on August 05, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

Comments Off

Google lets you economize your effort by devising a multiple sign-in feature in Google Accounts. This feature makes browsing through Google products an almost seamless, more productive and more favorable experience.

You can now spare yourself some time and effort by not switching from one browser window to another, or signing in separately to multiple Google products. Thanks to Google! If the multiple sign-in feature is enabled, which is currently the default, signing in can now be done on the Google Accounts homepage. An overview of your current Google accounts will appear afterwards, allowing you to choose which product you will want to first work on.

This advanced feature currently works only for Gmail, Google Sites, Google Reader, Google Voice and Blogger, among others. Note that the account id you use in logging in will be your default account throughout the session. If the product you are subscribing to does not support multiple sign-in, you will automatically sign in with your default account in order to use the product. And once you sign out from one account, you sign out from all accounts at once.

It is one interesting feature that can keep getting better. If only Google will work on the three accounts per login limit right away, right? What do you think?
