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.
