Google has a lot of stuff going on out there and this week they’re rolling out a new feature: phone calls from Gmail.  There’s some nice integration with Google Voice which allows you to send your Google Voice number out to caller IDs OR receive phone calls in your Gmail inbox. While it’s not a killer app, it does signal more convergence between your inbox and your phone which may eventually reduce costs for some of the services we all currently use.

The service was just turned on in my inbox this afternoon so I plan to play with it and even try receiving a call using it. Pretty cool stuff.
