(Update: Sprint, Skype And Verizon Too!) Free Calls To France Via Hangouts Due To The Attacks In Paris


Google Hangouts

Due to the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday, Google has decided to make Hangouts call to France free for a while. Anybody can call on both Android and iOS via Hangouts to France without any billing. This was announced via Google’s official page on Google+. Although Hangouts calls are free, it isn’t clarified if Google Voice calls are too.

Facebook has also taken some action again these attacks by activating a “safety check” function. Social media is also covering this and a hash tag, #PorteOuverte (“open door”) has been made to tell people where they could find shelter or assistance.

We with the Parisians and hope that the situation improves soon.

Update: Sprint, Skype And Verizon have also made calls free to France to show that they do care about what’s going on over there.
