Phone Calls Tab in Gmail

Gmail added a tab that lets you make calls. If you've switched to Hangouts in the desktop Gmail interface, you should see a new phone icon at the bottom of the window. It shows a list of contacts that have phone numbers and it lets you search for names or phone numbers. Click a phone number to open an audio-only Hangouts window and dial the phone number you selected.

You can click "make a call" or use the search button to see the list of contacts. Google also suggests to "try our mobile apps for Android and iOS".

"Almost all calls to the U.S. and Canada are free from all countries where Hangouts calling is available. For the rest of 2014, the first minute of most calls to 25 countries are free, and you'll be charged for each minute after," informs Google. The list includes: China, France, Germany, Brazil, Russia, South Korea, Japan, India, United Kingdom.
