Google kicked off an expanded telephone calling scope from Gmail, with support for over 38 languages and four payment currencies.

Google just upgraded its phone calling services in order to make your voice chatting more superb. The Gmail’s voice calling, which is powered by Google Voice and was launched way back in August, now features a cheaper price for international phone calls with over 38 languages available.

Though the company did not mention the exact date of the service’s big break, they have announced that a green phone icon will appear in your Gmail account, notifying you once the voice calling feature is already available for usage in your area.

Moreover, the phone calls will be much affordable for more than 150 countries across the globe. Pierre Lebeau, Google’s product manager, even discussed: “For example, it’s now only $0.10 (or €0.08) per minute to call mobile phones in the U.K., France or Germany (landlines are $0.02/min), $0.15/minute to call mobile phones in Mexico and $0.02/min to call any phone number in China and India.”

Though Google Voice is feature that most mobile phone owners will love, it still have its limitations. And if you are using an iPhone, sorry but you'll be having a hard time porting out to Google Voice.

Google Voice got some features that tech enthusiasts really love. For one, you can keep your phone number for life without the need to tether to a device or carrier again. Another is that you can easily forward your GV number to any of your phones, especially if you use several handsets or switch devices often. That said, Google Voice’s number portability feature can make you enjoy true mobile phone freedom.

This new feature makes Google an alternative carrier, only that the company does not own any tower, does not charge you anything, and you can leave any time.However, the Google Voice have its own limits.

Apple recently approved GV Mobile +. It's a good news, right?

The masters behind the Google Voice app for iPhone – GV Mobile + – announced today that Apple approved their app. Yesterday, GV Connect popped out of the App Store, with another reversal of Apple’s policy. Apple initially gave permission to the Google Voice apps but banned them from the App Store because of the “duplicated” iPhone features.

Any supporter of Google Voice knows that this is not a fair assessment on the matter.The apps are providing a different twist on the features through Google Voice service. Helping you create and use a virtual phone number of your choice plus added features to give extra services to your phones.

Google Lets You Open Multiple Accounts in One Browser

Written on August 05, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

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?
