Gmail calling now available in 38 languages Google has announced today that they have expanded their Gmail calling program to 38 languages.
Since 2010, U.S.-based Gmail users could use the email service to call landline and mobile phones directly from their web browser, and that service has now been expanded internationally.

Outside of standard USD, you can now purchase calling credit in Euros, British Pound or Canadian dollars.

Furthermore, the search giant says it has lowered its calling rates, for example, "$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."

The full list, with 150 destinations is here: Gmail rates page

Google also reiterated that calls within U.S. and Canada will remain free for the rest of 2011.
