While it was interesting to go through the Gmail Official blog update about a new feature introduced for PC-to-Phone calling in Gmail, trying it out myself in India resulted in a mere “nothing”.
This feature is presently available only to Gmail users based in the USA however I have seen the feature a few times on my Gmail too. Mystery remains unrevealed!!
Coming to the point as the official blog said, there are 2 features added.
- Users will no longer need to type a phone number if they have it in a conversation in their Inbox.
Clicking the linked number in your conversation will open your dial-pad populated with that number.
- You will also see a little green colour phone icon next to phone numbers stored with your Contacts.
I know I live in India and still nothing as such will work for users in India, though I would still like to share my screen with you.
I have hidden parts of the address/phone number for privacy reasons
As you can all see, there was no link appearing on the phone number above. Though I strongly wish to see a link appearing soon, what you all have to say on that? Do share your thoughts with me! 🙂
