Google has supported free phone calls to the U.S. and Canada via Hangouts for quite a while and now it’s adding free minute calls for 25 other countries. According to Google, users will now receive the first minute of their call for free when calling to the 25 countries listed below:

  • Australia
  • Belgium
  • Brazil
  • Canada: Most calls will be free. A few destinations will cost USD 1 cent per minute after the first minute. The 1-cent rate may vary depending on the local currency. You can look up the cost through the calling credit page for your Google account.
  • China
  • Dominican Republic
  • France
  • Germany
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Mexico
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Peru
  • Poland
  • Russia
  • South Korea
  • Spain
  • Sweden

  • United States: Most calls will be free. A few destinations will cost USD 1 cent per minute after the first minute. The 1-cent rate may vary depending on the local currency. You can look up the cost through the calling credit page for your Google Account.

After turning on voice calling in Hangouts, you can make domestic and international calls using a WiFi or data connection (such as 4G). You can also receive calls if you have a Google Voice number.

Users will have to add call credit to the Google account ahead of time and can only make one call at a time. Further, the offer is subject to abuse limits, so if you’re making a lot of calls every day, some of those calls may not be eligible for the offer. You’ll also need the Hangouts dialer application.[signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”icon-users”][/signoff]
