Google has an attractive offer for Voice customers who frequently call landlines and mobiles in Europe. Connecting to someone in European countries via Google Voice numbers is now cheaper.
The search giant announcement that your Voice licenses now cover calls between many European numbers. The latest change came into effect on February 8, meaning that domestic and international rates no longer apply to these calls.
“This change will reduce the cost of staying connected with your colleagues, partners and customers spread across Europe,” the company said in a blog post.
This feature is available to all users with European phone numbers, except domains with paid calling disabled.
Previously, calls to Europe via fixed and mobile devices, including top Android phones, were charged by the minute. For example, a landline call to the UK costs $0.01 per minute.
The latest change means you can make these calls without paying extra on top of your Voice plan (starter, standard or premier). The cheapest plan starts at $10 per month, though the number of users and locations is only limited to 10, with no international calls. You’ll need to pay $30 per month for the Premier plan, which includes unlimited users and locations.
Google Voice is one of the best Skype alternatives that offers cheaper rates to make and receive international calls. What makes it an even better value is that it lets you make phone calls to the US and Canada at no charge.
