Google introduce 2- way SMS in Gmail

Hello Readers.. Google has introduced one more new feature in GMAIL. Now you can Send SMS messages to any US cellphone no. Just click on Settings, and go to the Labs tab. Scroll down until you see "Text Messaging (SMS) in Chat" and select Enable and Save Changes.

Well this service you can use only in Internet Explorer 7.0+, Firefox 2.0+, Safari 3.0+, and Google Chrome. You won't see a 'Labs' tab in your Settings if you're not using the newer version of Gmail on the browsers listed above. Please note that if you're using Internet Explorer 6.0, you will not have Gmail Labs.

This service will work only United States numbers right now, but you can send texts to your friends with US phone numbers from anywhere in the world. You can start by just typing a phone number into the search box in the chat window on the left, then select "Send SMS." You can also select the contact you want to SMS first and then add their phone number.Your friend can reply to this text on your phone just like you'd reply to any other text. The reply gets routed back to our Gmail servers and shows up in your friend's Gmail chat window.

To stop spammers ===
If you are getting a message from somebody you don't want, just reply with the word BLOCK. If you don't want to get texts from anybody using Gmail, reply with the word STOP
