Technology: SMS Messaging via Chat is now enabled by Gmail

Thursday, December 11, 2008

A new aspect has been launched by Gmail that allows its users to send free SMS messages via the integrated Chat and in order to activate this fresh feature you have to visit the Gmail Labs page and find out the correct listings for it.

At the top of the chat window you just have to type a phone number into the search box if you want to send a message.You just have to hit "Send SMS" which is on the left side of the Gmail interface.You also have the option to allocate the numbers with contact names so you don't have to type the numbers again and again.The recipients on the other hand can simply reply these messages by simply using the reply button on their cell phones to send their own messages because Gmail ties a unique phone number with each of your contacts.

This service is currently being tested out only for the US phones for now although it's said that messages can be sent from abroad and you only have to direct it to a US number.This service might not be new to us as AIM has been doing it for years, but for the Gmail users it's quite a new and handy feature.Therefore,Gmail users from now on can send messages to their near and dear ones living in the US.
