Google understands the sacrifices of our troops and have just introduced a program to provide all U.S. Service Members with FREE calls home using Gmail.
We understand that it’s not always easy or affordable for our troops serving overseas to call friends and family at home, so starting today we’re making it completely free for all uniformed military personnel with valid United States Military (.mil) email addresses to call the United States, right from Gmail.
To start making free calls, follow these 2 steps:
Step 1: Add your .mil address to your Google Account:
Sign in on the Google Accounts homepage.
Click Edit next to ‘Email addresses.’
Add your .mil email in the ‘Add an additional email address’ field.
Click Save. You will receive an email at your .mil address.
Open the verification email and click the verification link.
Step 2: Click the ‘Call phone’ link in your chat roster and use the dialpad to make calls. You may be prompted to install the Voice & Video Chat plugin.
