    Why not just use WhatsApp?

      WhatsApp family groups have pros and cons... initially I hated it. Lately, I feel it's the best way to connect to relatives in a non chalant way without getting too much involved

      Who has figured out the secret to dealing with WhatsApp?

      My problem is because of the amount of noise these family groups make, it makes me numb to any WhatsApp messages.

      If I mute them, it would have accumulated hundreds of messages before I can go check them and by then I am horrible late anyways. And then there are that photos that get shared on groups. Who has time to keep clearing them off? If u don't, they just keep collecting like little pieces of garbage in your phone.

      And then there are the family groups of your spouse you get added into post being married.😩

      It's free for everyone when u call any phone within US. International calls cost money.

      Google employees might have a different deal here.

      At Cisco, I could use my work phone to call international numbers too. They go VoIP to India and then get handed off to cell network as a local call to connect to the phone, so the company still pays a low local call rate. I never used it much for the reasons that it was not work related.

      Google voice calls to India have been cheap enough at 1c per min.
