Google introduces SMS Text Messaging for Chat

GOOD NEWS FOR Gmail Users!!!!!!Gmail users can now use text messaging for chat by just clicking on "Settings" in their Gmail accounts and then going to the "Labs" tab and just scrolling down until they see the brand new feature called "Text Messaging (SMS) in Chat" and selecting "Enable" and "Save Changes". Although this facility is now limited to cell phones in the US, gmail users can send texts to their friends with US phone numbers from anywhere in the world. The receiver of the SMS though, may be charged by their mobile carrier. Users can just type a phone number into the search box in the chat window on the left, then tpye the message in the box provided and then click "Send SMS". The receiver of the SMS can respond to it and the response will come back in IM form.
