Gmail FREE SMS Service Let you Send FREE SMS Worldwide

I know how much people get excited when they read a word – FREE, do not matter whatever it reads later that word free but it’s human nature that they want everything which comes to them at free of cost. Today I’m going to talk about one such free service that will help you send free SMS worldwide, I know we already have such websites that offer to send FREE international SMS and many other to send FREE SMS within India. But for that we have to login into their websites in order to send our SMS but when the same service get started with a email service provider where you find yourself 24*7 – Gmail, how handy it will be to use – Gmail Free SMS?

How to Send Free SMS from Gmail

Today when I was on Gmail I read their heading – “Chat and SMS” for the first time. Sounds crazy but I haven’t seen that heading before. And that help me found Gmail Free SMS service.

Anyways, the service I’m talking about can be found under Gmail chat box, I’ll tell you where.

We all know that Gmail has changed its chat box interface so to find Send SMS button/feature you have to take your mouse over a name (to whom you want to send SMS) and click on the drop button to get Send SMS button. Like the below screenshot:

Once you click on Send SMS button one box will pop up on your screen. Now you have to select the country and enter the mobile number to save – one time process, once you save it, it won’t even ask you to enter the mobile number. Just click on Send SMS button from that person’s name and the chat box like window will appear on the right panel to type and send SMS.

Remember you cannot Send SMS to that mobile number which doesn’t come under Gmail’s listed operators. Complete list can be read here.

Read the Terms before Using Gmail Free SMS Service

Remember: You will get 50 credits a day limit to send SMS every SMS you send will deduct 1 credit from the total credit but when someone replies to your SMS you get 5 credits back which is again to 50 credits a day. That will help people not get their inbox overflow.

Suggestion: Not send too much SMS to a single number or Gmail will block that number for you and you will not be able to it again. Though Gmail have not revealed on how many SMS it will get block.

Note: Though they support a wide range of international mobile operators from various countries to send SMS but if you still don’t find your mobile operator in that list you can send email to team to add your operator at mobile-operators-gmail-sms-integration@google.com.

I’m sure you will love Gmail Free SMS service. Let us know in comments.

I should thank shoutmeloud for that email ID.

Boomerang is a Firefox / Chrome plugin that lets you take control of when you send and receive email messages. It helps you Remember to pay bills, Schedule birthday/holiday notes when you have time to write, And lots more! Right now Boomerang is only available for two browsers Google Chrome and Firefox.
