With the ability to call phones built right into Gmail, you no longer have to get out your phone and retype a number anytime someone send you one in an email or chat message. Starting today, you'll see that phone numbers appear as links, like this:

Just click the number, and Gmail's dialpad will pop up, already populated with the number you're trying to call.

Click "Call" and voilĂ ! Of course, if you don't already have the voice and video plugin installed, you'll be prompted to do that first.
