SMS Feature in GMail

Yahoo! has offered this for quite some time and Google is now following suit. Gmail, is soon going to be incorporated with a new feature that lets users send SMS through Gmail.  This is good news for us avid Gmail users and we’re giving it a big thumbs up as just another reason to be using Gmail.

Last minute news is that just before it was to be “shipped” to the GLabs, they found quite a few bugs which made the experience a bit unpleasant.  So, it was temporarily shelved for roughly another 2 weeks.

It really intrigues me about how these things work and Garett Rogers of ZDNet.com gives a good account of how this stuff really works.

Google has reserved 1000 phone numbers especially for this purpose.  What happens is when we send an SMS, GMail assigns us a number to communicate with that single person. So, SMS n people n unique numbers are assigned to you, where n < 1000, assuming a condition that you might not be communicating with that many in a single session.

Interesting,  it seems to rejuvenate our experience and give us a way to reach out to friends much quicker from anywhere to everywhere.  We can’t wait another 2 weeks!
