Send SMS right from Gmail chat

Gmail has rolled out yet another Lab feature that will let you send text SMS messages to peers on your Gmail chat list.

But right now this feature is available only in US. Hope Gmail will roll out this feature world wide soon.

In order to use it, you must first enable it through Gmail Labs, then you can initiate SMS-based instant message chats by typing in a phone number in the chat box on the left of Gmail page.

On the receiving end, when you get a text message from Gmail on your phone, it will come from a number in the 406 area code.
