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.

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.

Read the Terms before Using Gmail Free SMS Service
