Google sms service has started in India – Google has started free text messages service through Gmail Chat Box in India, you can now send sms any where in India free using Gmail.

You will get 50 credits for a day, If you have received back sms on reple then for a single reply you will get 5 bonus credits. This google sms service is available for all the mobile operators in India. However I have checked that my mobile is DND activated and when I tried to sent sms on my number it has failed.

If you are not getting google sms service notification in your chat box , you can enable this via your settings, follow these steps to enable sms in chat-

1. Login your Gmail account

2. Click on Gear icon at right top side to reach settings

3. Click on labs

4. Now enable SMS (text messaging) in Chat

5. save settings and see you will found send sms option in your chat box
