Did you know you could make a free phone call from Gmail? There are a couple of ways to do this:
- In Gmail under the Chat area, click on the Call Phone link to open the dialer to enter a phone number.
- Click on any phone number link in an email message to dial the number.
If you connect to a public or private Internet that may block this traffic; you can first connect to the University's VPN to get around those settings. Please use common courtesy for people around you when placing these calls, because without a headset it will be like speaking into a speakerphone.
Currently these calls are offered for free through Google Chat, but we will send out a notification if this policy changes. Google often makes changes before we are notified so be attentive if they try to sell you a service or charge you a fee.
