Thanks to chainmail for this info.
Yep, I tried it too.
There are several steps:
log in to Gmail
find the new menu item "Call Phone" on left nav list
using the popup window click button to download some software
quit all web browsers
open GoogleVoiceAndVideoSetup.dmg that was downloaded & install
when installer is finished open your browser
view your Gmail, click "Chats" then find "Call Phone" on left nav list
make a call
I installed GV on two MacBooks and had absolutely no problems that ryfm didn't heal.
Couple of questions.
The call was coming in from California. Will there be any long distance charges applied to the person to whom you are talking?
How and with whom is Google going to charge for the use next year when they plan to start charging.
It was fun listening to the delay echo when I called myself.
Did anyone say skype?
