Gmail to include VoIP capabilities

As if Gmail wasn’t all powerful enough, with its easy-to-use interface and ever growing storage capacity – now Google is testing whether they can include VoIP capabilities too.

The move was always on the cards after Google acquired Gizmo5, and it will work by allowing users to place calls from their Google Voice number.

Clicking the call button will bring up a call pad – handy access to all the stored numbers of your contacts and a credit balance. No unfortunately the service won’t be free like Skype.

There are also rumours of a desktop app in the works, which Google hasn’t confirmed yet.

    In traditional telephone systems, physical wires are installed on site, but a Sip Call trunk replaces this with a SIP trunking provider that offers virtual provisioning.
