Google rolls out free SMS service via Gmail in India
New Delhi: Here is some good news for all those in India who love to chat. Internet search giant Google has rolled out a free SMS chat service for its Gmail and paid email service Google Apps customers in India.
With the introduction of this new service, users will be allowed to send text messages or SMSes to mobile phones using Gmail chat. Google initially provides a user with a free SMS credit of 50 messages. This credit is increased by five every time someone responds to the text message by sending a return message.
According to the company’s website, when the SMS credit limit slashes down to zero, one credit will increase automatically after 24 hours.
In India, this feature is available with nearly eight cellular operators except Airtel, including Vodafone, Reliance, MTS, Tata, Idea and Aircel.
This feature was launched for Indian users on October 10.
