We already have a google voice application, why would you have to do from a browser?

GVDailer requires a callback number.
The web interface will call directly from the web interface and talk directly from there. No phone required

Very interesting indeed. Depending on the bandwidth needed for reasonable quality, this could be a serious contender to Skype indeed. Skype does a very good job under bad network conditions though, they've been in the business for longer already...

Is the Plugin API open ? I guess not. So unless Google opens up the source code to be integrated and compiled for Maemo, this will be a no-go. Think of similar to Skype Telepathy plugin.

Unless, of course, if it could made to work on top of the current google audio/video plugin in Maemo.

Anyone aware of unused functions in that one ? Eg. setting up a POTS call from the GV server and transcoding it to Google Talk audio, charging to the GV account ?

If you're talking about qgvdial, then I object you honour - that isn't true!

qgvdial has been able to dial out using your phone number or skype for some time now.

yes, but won't it use your minutes if you are not using skype?

This will be interesting if I can use this overseas where Google Voice does not forward to international phones. I can log on to Chat via wifi and someone can call my number and I can still pickup. This is not available today and the new features will enable that in the future.
