Gmail Call Recording Apprs To Be Rolling Out Widely

Back in August, Gmail launched what is perhaps my favorite new fture ever: integration with Google Voice, which lets you make and receive calls directly from your computer.rlier this month, there were some initial reports that Google had improved on this fture with a nifty addition: the ability to record inbound Google Voice calls directly from Gmail. Now it looks like Google is rolling out the fture more broadly — we’ve polled a few people and they’re all seeing it, and there are plenty of reports on Twitter of people noticing it for the first time.Now, Google Voice has let users record some phone calls for a long time, but it’s not exactly intuitive—you have to hit the ’4′ on your pad (most people probably don’t even rlize they can do this). The fture is only available on inbound calls, and there’s a verbal notifiion given to both parties on the call that recording has been activated.The Gmail implementation seems identical in terms of functionality — you can still only record inbound calls, and there’s the same notifiion when you activate it. But it’s a heck of a lot more convenient. A new ‘record’ button sits just above the dialpad, and it’ll probably introduce a lot of people to the handy fture for the first time.There do seem to be a couple cavts: first, as mentioned rlier, this is only available on inbound calls. Second, it looks like this doesn’t work on voice calls that are routed directly from one Gmail contact to another (without using Google Voice).We’ve rched out to Google to see if the fture has been activated for everyone.
