Rejoice and harken ye, if you live in the United States or Canada that is, Google has decided to extend free Gmail calling through the upcoming year of 2011.

When voice came to Gmail, we loved it. It was a clean and simple way to execute calls without dealing with AT&T and your blinking iPhone’s love of dropping any call that you wanted to make.

Don’t forget, you might be able to set your Gmail settings to US English and access the feature, even if you are not in one of the approved countries. The ability to make free, clear phone calls has a large draw around the world, something that is unsurprising.

Google sure has the holiday spirit, let’s hope they have another prize up their sleeve before Christmas.
